Every December, for the past 10 years, the Kimmell United Methodist Church has a clothing drive to benefit West Noble Primary. This year Lisa Avery presented 3 large bags of mittens, socks, and hats for WNP students. Their generosity is greatly appreciated.

Thank you to the Ligonier Rotary for their support of 6th Grade Outdoor School!
The Noble County Health Department will be offering off-site immunization clinics at the Ligonier Fire Department every 4th Thursday of the month from 9-3. This would be a great time to get your student caught up with his/her immunizations. The off-site clinics will be starting in March. If the Noble County Health Department has a good response, they may be able to offer these clinics more often.
The first clinic to be held at the Ligonier Fire Department will be on March 26. Parents still need to call the health department to make appointments. These are not walk-in clinics.
Parents/Guardians may contact Cheryl Munson, Noble County Public Health Nurse, 260.636.2978 ext 2, with questions.
It is that time of year when colds, flu, and stomach viruses are very common, and this year is no different. Our school nurses are seeing an uptick in illnesses, but nothing alarming. Rest assured, we monitor attendance closely and are far below the health department notification rate of 20% absences due to illness. However; local healthcare providers are reporting a high level of Influenza B with symptoms of fever, headache, aching, and cough. This can be treated with Tamiflu if diagnosed early. It is also not too late to get a flu shot for yourself or your children which can prevent or dramatically reduce the symptoms of the flu. As always, wash your hands frequently and keep students home if they have a temperature over 100 degrees until they are fever-free for 24 hours without medication.
