  • Check your child for fever or a productive cough.  If they have either within a 24 hour before Pali, students should stay home.
  • Please click here for a communication from Pali regarding their protocols to keep students healthy and safe.  CoronavirusLetter- March.pdf
Please find below answers to the questions that arose from the meeting on March 4: 

1) For prescribed over the counter medications, parents should pack it and indicate that it is to be taken at specific times or as needed.  We do have over the counter medications available at our Wellness Center and is administered to students should the nurse deems it necessary after assessing that student.

2) For prescribed medications, a doctor's note is not necessary.  Please ensure that the medication arrives in the original container/packaging with the directions labeled on the container.

3) During our stay there will be other smaller groups throughout the week, however we make up 80% of the participants and have our own separate program.

4) Students are more than welcome to pack pen/pencils and a notebook if they wish to take notes in our classes.  However, it is not necessary.
