In addition, please note:
- If your child is returning to school with a cast, stitches, crutches or any restrictive injury, your child must visit the Health Office upon return with a note from the doctor. Children will not be permitted to participate in gym or recess without such documentation and without medical clearance from the doctor.
- Upon returning to school after an absence, please send a note with your child with a short explanation for the absence.
- During the "cold and flu" season, we suggest that parents remind their children to wash their hands frequently to prevent the spread of germs and get plenty of rest in order to remain healthy.
- Be fever-free, less than 100.0 degrees without medication, for 24 hours before coming to school!
- NO vomiting for 24+ hours before coming to school!
- Do not send medication of any kind in with your child. Minnesota State law requires a doctor's prescription/note for any medication given during school time, including over the counter medicines.

Norovirus: On Friday, November 17, multiple children at Cherry View Elementary School in Lakeville were sick with symptoms of norovirus Friday, according to the Minnesota Department of Health. According to the channel 5 news, MDH did not list the official cause of the illnesses in a letter to parents, but epidemiologist Marijke Decuir said the symptoms were consistent with norovirus infections. Some of our students attend Cherry View elementary for special education services and may have been exposed. We will be taking precaution by increasing the cleaning/sanitizing of the school.
Below you will find the norovirus fact sheet. If your child has any of these symptoms, please do not send him/her to school. If you have any questions about the symptoms your child is having, please call our school nurse at 952-985-9939 before sending them to school. Thank you for your help!
