Notes from the Nurse

 

The holidays are over and we are starting to see an increase in COVID cases in the community, students and their families. If your child is a close contact to someone with COVID and needs to quarantine please let me know so I can go over when they may return to school in person. Any students in quarantine are still expected to do their school work remotely.  Teachers are notified of students who are out and working remotely but it is the student's responsibility to be checking in on google classroom and reaching out to their teachers for assistance with assignments. 

With the cold and flu season upon us, along with the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, it is extremely important that your child  stay home if they are sick or experiencing any symptoms of COVID, even mild .  As the symptoms of COVID  are similar to those of a cold or flu, it is impossible to distinguish one from the other without a test.  Please contact me, Irene Mackes, if your child is having any symptoms so we can discuss appropriate testing and return to school dates.

I can be reached at school at 267-9220  or by email  imackes@sau80.org

 

Recess Reminder

Students in all grades have recess everyday and need to be dressed appropriately for outside play.  Boots, snow pants, winter jacket, hat and gloves should be worn for recess.  I do not have items to lend out. 

 

Water Bottles

Students are allowed to have water bottles with them in class.  Our water bottle refill stations are available however the fountains have been disabled as they are a high touch surface.  Please make sure your child is coming to school with a refillable water bottle. 

 

Breakfast, Lunch and Snack

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  If your child does not have time to eat breakfast in the morning, please encourage them to get breakfast here at school when they arrive.  Hot lunch and breakfast is currently free to all students.  Students should also be bringing a snack from home as all grade levels have a snack/mask break in the morning.   A hungry child has a harder time focusing on school work when their stomach is growling.
