Important Message About Norovirus 
Norovirus is highly contagious and spreads rapidly so it is critical that parents are aware of the symptoms and keep their children home until 48 hours after children no longer are experiencing symptoms - stomach cramps, vomiting and diarrhea. Please be aware that hand sanitizer does not kill Norovirus.  Thorough, vigorous hand washing with soap and water is preferred to hand sanitizer.

How You Can Support Carver
Giving to Carver shows your support of our diverse programs. As a public Waldorf school, we rely on donations to provide funding for all the "extras" for our students every day such as the high-quality art supplies students use every day in their classes. Your donations have helped pay for a music program, the mobile kitchen and chalkboards. Our next goal is shaded outdoor seating! Please consider making a donation to Carver.
