Germ Quest from Wellstar

GERM QUEST TIPS FOR PARENTS

Germs are carried on our hands and can get into our bodies through our eyes, noses, and mouths. Hand washing is the best way to keep your family from getting sick.  Remind those close to you to wash their hands:

  • Before eating or drinking
  • Before touching a cut or scrape
  • After touching garbage
  • After going to the bathroom
  • After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
  • After touching pets
  • Any time your hands look dirty
  • After touching uncooked food

 Proper Way to Wash Hands:

  • Turn on water and get it nice and warm
  • Lather your hands with soap until you get lots of bubbles
  • Wash your hands by rubbing them together for at least 20 seconds (count to 20 slowly or sing “Happy Birthday!”)
  • Make sure to wash in between all of your fingers, your fingernails, the back of your hands, your wrists and palms
  • Rinse your hands for 20 more seconds
  • Dry your hands; use paper towels in public places, like schools and restaurants

Free reproducible language and early literacy activities

The “On the Go” materials are designed to encourage parents to interact with their children while they are “On the Go” to facilitate language, early literacy, and positive parent-child interactions. The materials include 14 activities as well as accompanying hints for each of the activities about how to modify the activities to meet the specific developmental needs of the child.  These materials are designed to be used outside the home:  in the car, while walking, during bus rides, etc.  The activities encourage early language and literacy development from birth through preschool.

To download materials go to www.walearning.com and click on the purple button that says “Free Parent Education Handouts” on the home page. Look for the “On the Go” files to download the materials in PDF format.

SPANISH, RUSSIAN, SOMALI AND VIETNAMESE VERSIONS are available and free.

Peanut butter allegies

Pp

Dear Parents,

Please be aware that there is a student in your child’s classroom with a severe allergy to peanuts. A child with this type of allergy must avoid any contact with food made from these products. These children are at risk for severe and potentially life threatening allergic reaction. We ask that you do not send any food to school that contains peanut butter or peanut products. If your child must have peanut products on a certain day, please contact your child’s teacher BEFORE sending the food so we can make classroom adjustments as necessary.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Please your student’s classroom teacher, or an administrator with any questions or concerns.

 

Estimados Padres,

Quiero informarles  que en el salón de clases de su hijo hay un estudiante que es alérgico al maní (cacahuate).  Un niño que tiene este tipo de alergia debe evitar el contacto con cualquier alimento que contenga este ingrediente. Estos niños están expuestos y a riesgo de tener una reacción alérgica severa que podría amenazar sus vidas. Por favor, le solicitamos, no envíe a la escuela cualquier alimento que contenga o pueda contener mantequilla de maní o sus derivados. Si su hijo tiene que traer algún día un alimento con maní  o sus derivados, por favor, contacte al maestro de su hijo ANTES de enviarlo  para hacer los ajustes y tomar las medidas necesarias en el salón de clases.

Gracias por su cooperación y comprensión. Si tiene alguna pregunta o preocupación, puede comunicarse con el maestro de su hijo, o con uno de los administradores de la escuela.

EARLY DISMISSAL ON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 30TH

Hello EV Parents!  This is just a reminder that this Wednesday, August 30th, Cobb County Schools will have Early Dismissal across the district for staff professional development.  Eastvalley students will begin dismissal at 12:30.  There will be no FAST Activities on Wednesday.  The After School Program will run from 12:45-6:00 PM.  Please make all necessary arrangements to ensure your child is dismissed safely and correctly on Wednesday, August 30thfor Early Dismissal.  Thank you!

Extended School Day August 21st

Solar Eclipse Permission Form.Final_Central_SPANISH-1eovq3m

Solar Eclipse Permission Form Final_Central PORTUGUESE-19jvoa4

On August 21st, the Cobb County School District has extended the school day by 45 minutes as a result of the solar eclipse.  In preparation for the event, we purchased the NASA certified protection eyewear for our 4th and 5th grade students and teachers.  Only students in those grade levels will be allowed to view the eclipse live outside with proper eyewear and parent permission.  Permission slips will be sent home in Tuesday Tracker folders on August 15th and must be returned by Friday, August 18th.  Students in K-3rd grades will be allowed to watch a live stream of the event from their classrooms.  Any students that have a portable classroom will be brought into the cafeteria to watch a live stream of the event.  As always, you are allowed to check your student out prior to 2:00 pm. We are asking for no checkouts from 2:00pm – 3:00 pm. There will be additional support in the front office from 11:30-12:30 to assist with early checkouts.  Dismissal will begin at approximately 3:05 with bus students. Please feel free to call the school if you have any further questions or concerns.

Additional safety and security measures

Please do not forget about our NEW “buzz in” door lock system at the main entrance of the school.  This feature will keep the main entrance door locked at all times except 7:00-8:10 a.m. on school days.  Outside of that specific time frame, all guests to our school will need to “buzz in.”  Part of the system includes a box outside of the main entrance door that is equipped with a door bell and camera.  Staff members working in the front office will receive an alert when a guest arrive and rings the bell.  The office staff will be able to see and hear the guest, and once the guest shows an ID and states the nature of their business, the office staff will “buzz in” the guest, asking them to report to the main office to sign in.

It will require cooperation on the part of all of our parents and other guests to school so please remember:

  1.  You must always present your ID and let the office staff know why you are visiting at the “buzz in” camera.  We are going to ask everyone, every time you come to the door.  Please know this is for the safety of everyone, especially our students.  Please do not allow other adults to enter with you/hold the door for them as we must buzz each person in separately.
  2. The door is locked at 8:10 so please work hard to have your child bring everything they need to school so you won’t have to make a special trip to school to deliver something to them.  If you must deliver, make sure you have your ID with you when you come to the door.  The office staff will not be able to go to the door and get a lunch/jacket/homework/etc.
  3. There will be no dismissal after 1:45 to ensure a safe and orderly dismissal process.  Please do not come after 1:45 to pick your child up for appointments, etc.  If you are late to pick them up, they will be dismissed during regular dismissal times.

We know that you will join us in thanking Cobb County School District for being on the forefront of adding additional safety and security measures for your child(ren).  We appreciate your cooperation as we transition into using this newest safety feature.  Thank for working with us to keep everyone safe!
