Important Medical Information
We have had a few reported cases of hand, foot and mouth disease at Saint John. These occurrences are in lower grade areas. Hand, foot and mouth disease is a mild viral illness, occurring most often in children under age 10, but can occur in older children and adults. A lower grade fever which can last from 1 to 3 days may accompany this disease. Vesicles form on the inside of the mouth usually on the cheek, gums and on the side of the tongue. Vesicles later appear on the feet and the hands and occasionally on the buttocks, and may persist from 7 to 10 days. Symptoms occur 3-5 days after exposure. If your son/daughter is experiencing symptoms, you are urged to see your family physician.
According to the information received from the Department of Public Health, particular attention should be given to thorough hand washing and no sharing of eating or drinking utensils. Thorough handwashing is practiced at school. Eating and drinking utensils are not shared.

School Closing due to Inclement Weather
SJL follows the school closing of the Plymouth School District. When Plymouth Schools are closed, SJL is closed as well. We are not listed separately.
Visibility: Blowing snow is the most critical factor in safe transportation; this includes concern with fog.
Who makes the decision? Several people have input, but the final decision lies with the superintendent, who consults with:
While the decision to close school lies with the superintendent, parents have the ultimate responsibility for keeping their children safe. If a child is kept home during inclement weather, it will be counted as an excused absence. Parents also should consider whether an inexperienced driver should drive or ride the bus instead.
