Augusta Circle Needs Volunteer Mentors
Mentor Greenville is a local program for students who need extra encouragement and support. Volunteers are matched with one student for the school year. Mentors are asked to commit 30 minutes per week to meet with the student at Augusta Circle, which can take place during breakfast or lunch. If you are interested in helping with this program, please contact Patti Rushing at 355-1204 or email@example.com.
Invite a Veteran to Lunch
Tuesday, November 11, students can invite military family, friends or neighbors to lunch. We will celebrate our veterans and active duty personnel for their service to our country. Please remember that school lunch accounts may not be used to purchase the veteran's lunch, so be sure to send money to purchase your guest's lunch.

A Message from the Health Room
In an effort to decrease the spread of contagious illness at school, the school district would like to remind you of the following:
- If your student has fever, they must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school (this means without the use of fever reducing medications).
Fever is defined as a temperature of 100.4 or greater.
- If your student has diarrhea, they must be diarrhea free for 24 hours before returning to school
(this means without the use of diarrhea suppressing medication). Diarrhea is defined as 3 or more episodes of loose stools in a 24 hour period.
- A student must not come to school if vomiting 2 or more times in 24 hours. A student should have 1 or 2 meals without vomiting before returning to school.
If you have questions concerning your student’s health, please contact your school nurse. Thank you for your assistance in decreasing the spread of illness.
