We received this information from Coreen Dupay from the Kalamazoo County Health and Community Services Department today:
As we have been seeing increasing numbers of gastrointestinal and influenza-like illnesses in Kalamazoo County, we are sending out this friendly reminder on infection control.
Anyone with a vomiting/diarrheal illness should not attend day care/school/work until 48 hours after the last episode. Anyone with a fever illness (such as influenza) should be excluded from daycare/school/work until fever-free for 24 hours without the assistance of fever-reducing medications.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

This Thursday, February 23rd, is Winchell’s first “Dine-Out” night at the Noodles & Co. on West Main. The hours of the event are. Winchell will receive 50% of all sales during this time. Your child will be bringing home a flier today or, or just mention Winchell Elementary when you are checking out and automatically 50% of the sale goes to the school! This applies to both dine-in and carry-out. The event is not limited to Winchell families so please feel free to share with your friends and neighbors or even on your Facebook page! We hope to see you there! As always, Winchell Rocks!
