Notes from the Nurse

  • Friendly Reminders

    It’s not too late to sign up for the Mobile Dentist coming to Hilltop Tuesday December 5th. Call school for more information (815) 385-4421.

    Please dress your student for the weather as we go out for recess, unless temps are below 10 degrees. Snow play requires snow pants and boots. Keeping an extra set of clothes in your student’s backpack saves a phone call home should your student get wet outside at recess.


    Tip Of The Month

    • Fitness During Cold Weather Months    
      • 60 minutes of physical activity a day but not necessary all at once.
      • Keep it fun and make being active part of daily life.
      • Get outside, play in the snow, go for a walk, invite friends to build a snowman or snow fort.
      • If weather keeps you indoors, motivate movement with games: scavenger hunt, freeze dance, and bottle (plastic) bowling to name a few.  Active children are healthy children that grow into healthy active adults!


    Our day is made exceptional when we see all of our students here ready to learn and share their thoughts!  Please contact the Health Office if I can be of any assistance.  Happy Holidays to you and your family!


    Your School Nurse, 

    Mrs. Kathy Carlson
