*A letter from our Health Office…

 

When to Keep Your Child Home From School

1) Take a minute each morning to verify your child feels well.  If any concern, check their temperature before sending them off to school.

2) Keep your child home if they have a temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or greater.  The child should be fever free for 24 hours without the use of medications, before they return to school.

2) Keep your child home if they are vomiting or have diarrhea.  They should not return to school until there is no vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours.

3) Keep your child home if they have pink/red eyes with drainage.  They should not return to school until the eyes are clear, with no drainage, OR a medical provider’s note stating the child is not contagious.

Knowing the above information- if your child has other symptoms and you are still not sure if your child should stay home from school, please call your school office and ask to speak to the School Nurse.  Remember that each day your child misses school affects their education!

PARENTS: Please help us reinforce these good health habits with your child…

1) Cover your mouth and nose:  Cough/sneeze tightly into a sleeve not the air.

2) Clean your hands:  Washing your hands often with soap and water (especially before eating lunch or a snack) or use a dab of hand sanitizer.  Clean your hands after blowing your nose too.

3) Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth (also known as “The T-zone”). Germs that cause illness are usually spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.  Use the back of your wrist to itch your face, not your fingers, especially in a public place like school.

4) Practice other good health habits.  Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food and drinks.

Thank You!

Nicole Fuller RN, MSN

School Nurse

 

*Did you know that National School Counselor Week is Feb 5-9?!
“School counselors work with all students to remove barriers to learning by addressing students’ academic concerns, career awareness in post-secondary options and social/emotional skills. Comprehensive school counseling programs help to increase student achievement and provide a much-needed resource for students, parents, teachers and administrators. School counselors are integral to student success.” – Kwok-Sze Wong, Ed.D., American School Counselor Association executive director.
Mickle School Counselors:
6th grade- Nicki Hanseling, nhansel@lps.org
7th grade- Patrick Neilly, pneilly@lps.org
8th grade- Craig Penner, cpenner@lps.org
School counselors travel with their group of students throughout their 3 years at Mickle. Please contact your student’s counselor if they can assist your student or family in any way.

 

Quarter 3 P/T Conferences will be held today at 3:45-6:45p, in the gyms. We look forward to seeing you!

 

Boxtop collection is coming soon. Boxtops have to be sent in early to the company so we have an early turn in for 3rd quarter. Get those boxtops turned into your 1st period teachers. Thanks to all the students helping support this cause, you are doing great work.
