Notes from our school nurse Hello Emily Dickinson Families! The school year is off to a great start and I am enjoying getting to know all of your wonderful children. I've included a few tips below to continue to keep the school environment happy and HEALTHY. 😃 Please continue to keep all children who are exhibiting signs and symptoms of illness at home, especially if they have fever or symptoms of respiratory and stomach illness. If a child has fever, vomiting, or diarrhea it is district policy to request the child remain home for 24 hours following the last episode. If you are unsure, keep your child at home and contact your health care provider or school nurse for advice at 522-6651. Allergy and asthma season remains with us. Monitor all symptoms closely and follow your health care providers advice. If your child has asthma, it is extremely important to keep an inhaler at school. Montana allows children who are able to carry their own inhaler. See Nurse Brandy for more information. We can protect and strengthen our immunity by eating nutritious foods, taking daily walks, sleeping for 8-10 hours a night, reducing stress and smiling daily. We have had several cases of head lice in the school. While we do perform head checks in each classroom after a confirmed case of lice, it is still important to check your child's head at home as sometimes the nits (eggs) may show up after the head check has been done. Thank you so much for your support and cooperation. Nurse Brandy
BOX TOPS **Did you know our school collects Box Tops?! We would love your support in collecting them too. Box Tops are located on many items. All you have to do is cut them out, put them in a baggie with your child’s teacher’s name, and send them to school with your child. In order to make Box Top collecting a friendly competition, we will see which class can collect the most Box Tops for the months of November through January and March through May. The class that brings in the most Box Tops during these three-month periods will get a reward (we are still working out the details on what the reward will be exactly). There will be a new box outside the office for you to deposit your Box Tops.
