    Good evening Briarcliff families,

    We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. As we start this week, we want to send a couple of reminders as the weather is cold. Recess and cold weather: Students will have recess daily in temperature above 32 degrees including the windchill. Please make sure your child has a coat or wears multiple layers if needed.

    Flu and cold season is here! Please do your part by keeping your child home when they are sick. Below is an excerpt from the WCPSS website.

    Flu, Colds and Viruses

    • When your child is sick

      The best thing you can do is to keep your children home when sick. This will help stop the spread of illness to other children and teachers. Keep them home when they show any of these symptoms:

      • fever of 100 degrees F or higher
      • nausea or vomiting
      • severe headache
      • diarrhea
      • red, watery eyes with yellow drainage
      • undiagnosed rash

      Children should stay home until they have been naturally without fever for at least 24 hours.

      Please do not give children fever-reducing medication and then send them to school.

      If you are called to pick up a sick child at school, please come quickly. If you know your child has been exposed to someone diagnosed with the flu virus, call your doctor immediately to find out what to do.

      State law (Garrett's Law) requires us to provide you with information about meningococcal meningitisinfluenza (flu), and human papillomavirus (HPV) and the vaccines that protect against these diseases.

    Good Afternoon, this is Stephanie Raiford, Principal of Briarcliff Elementary, with a brief announcement. 

    Today, we conducted a school-wide lockdown drill and our students and staff did well. The drill took approximately 15 minutes.  

    We practiced this drill so that our staff and students are familiar with our lockdown procedures in case of an emergency.   During the drill, the school was not open to visitors.    We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
