  5. HEALTH AND SAFETY REGULATIONS • Please do not come to school if you are ill (this includes a cold, sore throat, or cough). It is important to prevent the spreading of germs in a classroom situation. • You may feel that you are leaving the teacher short-handed and may want to come in even though you are not well. This is not good for you, the children, or the teacher. • Please let the school know ahead of time that you are not able to come in, and be certain you are completely over your illness before you return.
