Illnesses

Hi all,

With all the flu information out there and several of our students out with the flu or other illnesses, our school nurse has sent this message:

Dear Eastvalley Parents,

The winter months are upon us which means an increase in illnesses in our school community and at Eastvalley! While school attendance is critical to ensure student achievement and academic growth, it’s also just as important to maintain a healthy environment for all students. In order to keep everyone as healthy as possible, Eastvalley wants to remind all parents and families that students should not be sent to school with a fever, diarrhea, and/or vomiting. According to Cobb County School District policy, students should be free of fever (without the use of fever reducing medicine), diarrhea, and/or vomiting for 24 hours before returning to school.  This will help keep the students and staff healthy throughout the school year. Students may attend school while experiencing minor health concerns such as coughing, allergies, congestion, sneezing, exhaustion, and other mild, non-contagious conditions. Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation. Feel free to contact Nurse Dawn Mahoney at [email protected] or 770-578-7214 with any questions.

Prezados Pais da Eastvalley,

 

O inverno chegou! O que significa um aumento de doenças na nossa comunidade escolar e na Eastvalley! Enquanto a frequência escolar é fundamental para garantir o desempenho do aluno e rendimento acadêmico, também é importante manter um ambiente saudável para todos os alunos. Para manter todos o mais saudável possível, a Eastvalley quer lembrar aos pais e as famílias que os alunos não devem ser enviados para a escola com febre, diarréia e/ou vômitos. De acordo com a política do Condado Escolar do Distrito de Cobb ( Cobb County School District – em inglês), estudantes devem estar livres de febre (sem o uso de medicamento para reduzir a febre), diarréia e/ou vômitos durante 24 horas antes de retornar à escola. Isto irá ajudar a manter os alunos e funcionários saudáveis durante todo o ano letivo. Os alunos podem frequentar a escola enquanto estiverem com tosse, alergia, congestão, espirro, exaustão e outras condições mais amenas, não contagiosas. Agradecemos a sua compreensão e cooperação. Qualquer dúvida ou pergunta entrar em contato com a nossa enfermeira, Nurse Dawn Mahoney at [email protected] ou 770-578-7214.

Estimados Padres de Eastvalley,

¡Los meses de invierno han llegado lo que significa un aumento en enfermedades en nuestra comunidad escolar y en Eastvalley! Mientras que la asistencia escolar es fundamental para el rendimiento estudiantil y el crecimiento académico, también es importante mantener un ambiente saludable para todos los estudiantes. Con el fin de mantener a todos lo más saludable posible, Eastvalley quiere recordar a todos los padres y familiares que los estudiantes no deben asistir a la escuela con fiebre, diarrea, y/o vomito. De acuerdo a las pólizas del Distrito Escolar de Cobb, los estudiantes deben estar sin fiebre (sin la ayuda de medicamentos para reducir la fiebre), diarrea, y/o vomito durante 24 horas antes de regresar a la escuela.

Esto ayudara a mantener a los estudiantes y empleados saludables durante el año escolar.

Los estudiantes pueden asistir a la escuela si padecen de problemas de salud leves como tos, alergias, congestión, estornudos, agotamiento y otras condiciones leves, no contagiosas.

Muchas gracias por su entendimiento y cooperación. Si tiene preguntas adicionales se puede comunicar con la enfermera Dawn Mahoney al correo electrónico [email protected] o 770-578-7214.

Fire Safety Village field trip

Hi all,

Hope everyone is staying warm and safe and getting lots of rest on all these extra days off!

When we return to school on Monday, we will be going on our field trip to the Fire Safety Village.  Everyone was sent home with a waiver in their Tuesday Trackers to ride the go carts at the village.  Without this waiver, your child will not be able to participate in this activity.  I’m attaching it again in case it has been misplaced.  Unfortunately, there are no extra days to send home extra waivers, this is it!!  Don’t forget to send in a lunch in something disposable or make sure your child has money on their account to purchase a school lunch to take with us. 

2017-Waiver-for-the-Village-26p79tl

If you’re looking for things for your child to do over the break, reading is the number one thing.  Secondly, your child can go onto spelling city and do lots of spelling practice on their new words, unit 10.   IXL challenge:  Y1-Y4 and BB1 to BB11.

Special challenge:  Any child who brings in a drawing or picture that is symmetrical will receive a prize.

Please email me with any concerns or questions.

Enjoy your long weekend!!

Diane
