Principals Builders Club
I am proud to announce that there is a Principals Builders Club this year at ZES! The purpose is to recognize students who show their Zebra Pride in various ways. Students can be recognized by their classroom teacher, specialist teacher, special education teacher and early childhood teacher. It is my privilege as Principal to present each student with an award, recognizing their outstanding Pride and identifying them as a role model!
Veterans Day Ceremony
Zimmerman Elementary had the honor of hosting over 150 guests and Veterans to our school ceremony this year. The Zimmerman Legion Color Guard presented the colors and Pack 91 Scouts thanked each Veteran in attendance by giving them a bag of goodies, put together by students at ZES. Thank you to all Veterans who attended and the families who supported this ceremony!

Illnesses and Communicable Diseases
Is my child well enough to go to school? Many students and parents are frequently concerned about when students should stay home or attend school. You can expect your child to be ill 5-7 days during a school year. Remember that a child ill with an infectious disease can spread the disease when in contact with others in the family and the community.
Health Services will monitor the number of communicable diseases reported to them and notify parents via school newsletter or Campus Messenger, if a high percentage (>10 %) of children in a classroom or grade level have a particular communicable disease (ex. Strep throat, head lice, etc.).
Information regarding guidelines and exclusion recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) can be found on the Health Services Web Page or at the following link: Illnesses and Communicable Diseases
