Please assess your student's health in the morning before leaving for the school day. If your student was not feeling well before going to bed please be sure he/she is feeling completely well before making the decision to come to school. This is most important for keeping everyone healthy at Cardinal O'Hara. Currently, there is a respiratory virus with a sore throat that is most contagious.
