REMINDERS:

  • If you drop your child off in the morning or pick him/her up after school, remember that the line of vehicles is on Myrtle St. to allow for easier access to the front of the building.  Please do not try to enter the line by turning from Country Club Drive onto Eklund.  If you enter the building to get your child at the end of the day, please exit the school through the north doors by the cafeteria in order not to interfere with the parent pick-up lines.
  • REGULAR AND PROMPT ATTENDANCE IS IMPORTANT FOR YOUR CHILD’S LEARNING!  Students are counted tardy if they are not in their classrooms when teachers take attendance at 8:30 a.m.  Parents must sign their children in through the office if they arrive after 8:30!  Children that arrive late are not allowed to interrupt Rooster Reading Time and will wait in the front hall until 9:05.
  • Dress your children appropriately for outside recess during these last few weeks of winter.  We promote healthy exercise outside unless weather is extremely cold or inclement.  Should your child need to stay inside due to medical reasons, please provide a note from a physician.
  • Please contact Durham Transportation Services at 540-4610 to request bus changes for your child.  All changes in bus numbers must be approved through the transportation office.
  • Students are not allowed to charge more than 3 meals.  If you owe money for meal charges, please send payment to the primary school office or to your child’s teacher.  Students that accrue more than 3 charges will be served cheese sandwiches for lunch.  If parents think they may be eligible for free or reduced-cost meals, please contact the central office at 540-3161 in order to apply.  Students are allowed to purchase extra milk or juice for $.45 each.  Students are not allowed to charge extra milk or juice

 

Sincerely,
Sandra Haight

NEWS FROM THE HEALTH ROOM
The number of influenza cases is higher than usual for this time of the year. Influenza is cyclical and the peak can vary from season to season. Based on historical data, influenza season often peaks in February. This year cases are occurring earlier than in recent seasons. However, it is not yet known when this season’s peak will be.
The influenza strains circulating throughout the United States are components for the 2012-2013 Northern Hemisphere influenza vaccine. The best protection against getting influenza is to get the flu vaccine. Individuals who have not already received the flu vaccine should do so now. It is not too late.
And as always, practicing good health habits can help stop the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illnesses like the flu. A list of prevention tips are provided here.
1. Avoid close contact. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
2. Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.
3. Cover your mouth and nose. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
4. Clean your hands. Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
6. Practice other good health habits. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
