Announcements and Information

  • Weather Concerns:

    Please follow the weather forecasters to know how to dress for school.  Sometimes it is cold in the morning but warms up in the afternoon.  Layering is always a good idea.  Bring a sweater or jacket that is easily removable and stored. 

    Don’t forget to wash your hands and cover your coughs; we are still in flu season.

  • March is Injury Awareness Month

    The weather is getting nicer and we all want to get outside and ride bikes, skate board and just have fun.

    1. Remember to check and make sure your equipment, skates and bikes are in good condition.
    2. Start out slowly and increase movements every day. Stop if your body hurts.  Your body is trying to tell you something.
    3. Be very observant when walking, riding or running close to a traffic area. Stop, Look & Listen.
    4. If you are injured seek medical attention. Ice packs can help initially if you have pain.  Scraps and cuts should be cleaned very well. If you are bleeding, having difficulty breathing or having chest pains call 911.

    Have a Safe and Injury Free Spring Break.

  • 3D Zika Virus

    Zika is a relatively mild virus with symptoms so mild some people don't even know they have it. The major danger is to pregnant women due to the high risk of birth defects.
     
    The risk of contracting Zika is related to mosquito bites. 
     
    1. Remove standing water from your environment 
    2. Use a mosquito repellent spray or lotion on your skin when going outside. 
    3. Cover up exposed skin when you are outside in an area that has mosquitoes.
     
    Prevention is the key to not getting Zika virus.
