The Flu is upon us! Here are ways to prevent the spread of Flu at school and at home.

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use an approved hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and "cough and sneeze into your sleeve" if you have no tissue.
  • If you are sick, stay home from work.
  • If your children are sick, keep your children home from school until they have been fever-free x 24 hours without a fever reducer like Tylenol and/or 24 hours without vomiting.
  • If you do become sick with the flu, there are antiviral medications you can speak about with your doctor, even for children.

School is open at 6:55 for students. 
School begins at 7:25.  The tardy bell rings at 7:30. 
School is dismissed at 2:30.

School Pledge

As a Cape Fear Cub,
I pledge to do my best
Whether at home or on a test,
So that we can stay above the rest.


 Please donate clean plastic bottle caps of various sizes and colors to the art room for a future mural project!
