We are aware that there is conversation about measles and vaccine preventable illness in the area. Fortunately, Greece students have not been impacted and there are no suspected cases. If you have questions about vaccine-preventable illness or would like information on how our schools contain common contagious diseases this time of year, talk to your school nurse.

Viruses and colds are common this time of year. Student absences due to illness are in line with previous years. Here is some guidance about when a child should stay home from school due to illness.
