HEALTHY CHILDREN ARE SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS


 

 Sharing your child’s health information helps me provide the best care for your child.  Please contact me if you have any questions, or you child has:    

1) Any chronic illnesses such as:

Asthma

Heart problems  

Seizures              

Allergies (food or environmental)              

Diabetes

2) A new medication or change in medication dosage

3) An acute illness that has been diagnosed by your pediatrician

4) Been exposed to a communicable disease such as a strep throat infection, chicken pox, or conjunctivitis

5) A serious injury requiring hospitalization, or a diagnosed head concussion

6) An injury requiring casting, sutures, a splint, or mobility assistance of crutches or wheelchair

7) A diagnosis of infectious disease: flu, strep....

   

The school works very hard to keep kids healthy.  Please do not give your sick child Tylenol or Ibuprofen and send them to school.  They are contagious.

 General Information

 Healthy ParentingTips for Children

Sleep-ensure your child gets enough sleep to be able to participate fully in the school day.  Developing a routine at this age will help your child throughout their education career.

 Hydration-water bottles are encouraged in Pre-K and Kindergarten, even during winter.

 Eating a healthy diet

 Hand washing and cough/sneeze etiquette are ‘big deals’ for keeping kids healthy. These are taught and prompted at school.  Please help us by encouraging them at home also.

 Using lotions and balms on skin that is dry, red and chapped skin at home

 Getting regular exercise: encourage your child to go outside and play.  

 Clothing: Please send extra underwear and pants in backpack for accidents or if clothing becomes wet.

 Weather: Please dress your child appropriately for weather.  Children go out to recess each day unless the temperature outside is below 40 degrees for kindergarten and 45 degrees for pre-k.

Flu season is here!
