FSU Elementary News and Notes

Minimize
Dear Parent/Guardian:

There have been recent cases of influenza like illness at our school. The District has measures in place for managing this type of occurrence. If your child shows any signs of the flu, please contact your health care provider.

Please make daily efforts to keep your children healthy by protecting their immune systems – ensuring that they get adequate rest at night and eating a well-balanced diet. While we, at the school, are doing our part to maintain a healthy school environment, the best defense against influenza starts at home.

Here are some basic prevention steps:

- Wash hands often with soap and water and/or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer…

- Cover coughs and sneezes with tissues and discard immediately. Use the upper sleeve of a shirt or even a covered elbow area, if necessary when sneezing or coughing…

- Know the symptoms of the flu…keep sick children at home and do not send them to school if they are exhibiting flulike symptoms.

Your child must be fever free without the use of fever reducing medications before he/she returns to school.

Planning for what to do when children are sick is also important. Despite our best efforts, there are times when children will get sick. Children need to rest at home when they are ill. Keeping children at home will also help to reduce the spread of infection to students and teachers.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us.
  

IMPORTANT!

Dear Parents using the car line,

Our morning associates and volunteers are posted in our car line. If your child can open and close the car door on their own, we encourage them to do so as this speeds things up. If your child needs assistance (in the am) opening and closing the car door; we will assist. (Or if your car door is child-proofed) ----If this is the case, please place the “Assistance Needed” sign in your car windshield so staff knows to assist your car. You can obtain this sign from the office. (It is also attached to this e mail.

Volunteers:

Our car line is very improved, yet additional assistance with the morning and afternoon car line would make things even faster. Earn service hours! Volunteers are always welcome and truly appreciated! If you are interested, you may stop by the front office any day. We would love to have you!
