Dear Families, We have come to the time of year to expect cold and flu symptoms. Some of these are unavoidable but there are several things you can do at home to help prevent illness and keep everyone feeling healthy. Here are some tips to remember: Please wash all coats, backpacks and lunch boxes. If you are unable to wash it in the washing machine, please use a disinfectant on it. If your child brings a water bottle to school, please have them take it home daily to be washed or bring a new one each day. Please remind your child to cover coughs and sneezes with their elbow or a tissue and them wash their hand or use hand sanitizer. WASH, WASH, WASH YOUR HANDS! This is still the best defense against illness. Encourage your children to wash, especially before meals, using soap and warm water. To ensure they are taking enough time to adequately kill germs, have them sing the ABC song while scrubbing. Unfortunately, even with the best care, a virus can make us sick. Cold symptoms are best relieved with rest and fluids and may last as long as 10 days. If symptoms persist longer than this, the child should see a physician. Please keep in mind the guidelines below when deciding if your child should come to school. Any child with the following symptoms should stay home: -A fever 100 degrees or higher. A child should not come back to school until the temperature is normal for 24 hours without medication. -vomiting or diarrhea -a frequent cough -any rash accompanied by a fever -ear pain and/or eye drainage -sore throat with a fever and/or rash Thank you for helping us keep our students healthy and at their best.

Before being delivered, the cards were used for lots of math word problems and fun counting activities! The students focused on being kind and wishing others well as they made the cards! When asked about the card project, several students said the following: I like doing kind things. I hope the people will be happy because they see all the cards! It’s like a gift or a stocking. I like art and it’s for them and they will smile. They gave me candy when I trick-or-treated them. I am making the cards to give to all them and the cards make them smile. I love making cards for people because it will make them happy and feel good! People like a nice card. People will like them. I hope they like them and it was fun and that’s like Christmas!

Many of our youngest students miss 10 percent of the school year—about 18 days a year or just two days every month.

Do you know how many young children are chronically absent in your school or community?
