Hello! I hope everyone is having a nice afternoon! This was quite the week at Hype, a flu epidemic, a missing bus, and discovering 28 parents would not receive our messages anymore if we continued to use the Remind System. Thank you to those of you who have already switched over to ClassDojo. This app will allow us to do much more than just send messages, so I’m excited to start using it and discovering all that it can do. Please remember you have one more week to make the switch….after that we will only be using ClassDojo.
The flu really took a toll on our students and staff this week. Thank you to those who kept your students home when they were ill. While we don’t know for sure, we do feel this happened as a result of a student coming to school sick. As we have stressed many times, we have students in our class who have health complications and any illness could seriously jeopardize their health. As a result of this incident, one of our students had to be hospitalized. I know having a sick child is not convenient, but this is not a place to send a sick student. They need to receive care at home. Students are not to return to school until they are free of symptoms for 24 hours. (Fever, vomiting, diarrhea, etc) Students should stay home with congestive coughs or green runny noses and/or sore throats that are beyond that of a common cold. Students who come to school ill will be sent home. If you are unable to pick your son/daughter up within a reasonable amount of time we will begin calling your emergency contact numbers so that student can receive the care they deserve and to protect others from unnecessary illness.
For those of you interested, the Tim Tebow Foundation “Night to Shine” Prom is open for registration. The event is in Ann Arbor and I have heard nothing but spectacular things about it. Several students from class go each year – it would be so much fun to have a big group that attends!
Our classroom phone list has been sent out to those that participated, but I had one just come in, so before I update the list, if there are any others that would like to be included, please send in your form by Friday, January 25th.
