Swine Flu: With all of the news in the press about the swine flu over the past few weeks, we wanted to let parents know that we have received information from the Public Health District.  Here are a few of their suggestions:

-Wash your hands frequently.

-Cough into your elbow.

-If you are sick, stay home from school

Open Gym: Cancelled for this week.

Study Tip of the Week

(Review, due to upcoming Finals)

Over the past couple years we have had a few questions about the school’s policy regarding keeping old tests for younger siblings to use in subsequent years.  For example, I have children in grades 9, 8, 5, 4, 2, and Preschool this year.  If I was inclined to save tests from year to year, could I use those tests to help the next child study for the same test one or two years later?  The short answer is, no.  Students who have access to the previous year’s tests and answers have a distinct and unfair advantage over the other students in the class.  Teachers, both in the elementary and secondary, provide review sheets before each test.  This is what the students should use (along with notes, previous work, etc.) as they prepare for tests.  At Logos, using someone else’s old test to study for your test is cheating.

All the best,
