Guidelines for Keeping Sick Children Home
Colds: Please keep your child at home if he has a fever over 100 degrees or is experiencing discomfort that would interfere with his ability to perform in school (i.e. uncontrollable coughing, severe lack of energy).
Conjunctivitis (pink-eye): Follow your doctor’s advice for returning to school.
Diarrhea/Vomiting: A child with diarrhea and / or vomiting should stay at home and return to school only after being symptom-free for 24 hours.
Fever: The child should remain at home with a fever greater than 100 degrees. The child can return to school after he has been fever free for 24 hours (without fever-reducing medicine such as Tylenol or Motrin).
Speech Meet: Speech Meet information packets will be coming home with your students this week. Selections are due September 16.
Assembly Accompaniment Tryouts: 4th – 6th grade students are welcome to tryout to accompany singing at elementary assemblies. Tryouts will take place Wednesday, September 18 @ 12:00 in the lunch room. Student accompanists receive one free hot lunch for every assembly they accompany. See Mr. Whitling for a copy of the two songs.
2012-13 SAT Results: SAT results from last year will be coming home this Thursday with your child. Please take a minute to read over the cover letter and individual student scores.
Secondary Back to School Night – Rescheduled – : Back to School Night has been rescheduled for Tuesday, September 17 from 7:00-9:00 PM due to conflicts with the fair. On that evening we will re-enact, in miniature, a secondary school day. This is an opportunity for parents to come and sit under the instruction of their child’s teachers as we move through all seven periods contained in a normal school day. Come and learn apologetics from Mr. Euhus, Classical Literature from Mrs. Merkle, Logic from Mr. Nance, and PE from Mrs. Spencer and Mr. Whitling as we help provide a fuller picture of what your secondary student receives each day.
Study Tip for the Week
Busy dads need to have a system for staying in touch with how their kids are doing in school. Don’t wait for the midterm progress report to come home and tell you how things are going. Require your child to drop off all graded and returned school work at your spot at the dinner table right when he gets home (or some other convenient spot). Before dinner you can look through the pile to check progress. This will also give you the information required to ask intelligent questions during dinner about the topics that are being covered in school.
