    Wolves at our Door

    The International Wolf Center of Ely, Minnesota visited late March. Their focus is educating the public about wolf misconceptions. Second graders at Zimmerman Elementary got to learn about wolves with a hands on experience. The presenter brought wolf pelts. It was a neat experience for all.

  • 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
