If you are interested in referring your child, you are welcome to discuss this with your child’s LC teachers. Referrals will be accepted through December 17, 2021.

Nurse Kendall Update

Cold and Flu Season are upon us! Remember to keep washing your hands and stay home when you are sick. The ONLY difference between flu and Covid symptoms is loss of taste and smell with Covid. Please notify us if you are keeping your student home for Covid or flu and if your child is Covid positive, please do the self-report on your child’s SSO/Covid Central.



Remember if a person in your household tested positive for Covid-19, your student needs to quarantine for 10 days, unless he/she has been vaccinated or we have documentation of a past Covid infection. Please contact me if you have any questions and contact the school if you are quarantining so that your child’s absences will be excused.


The Mayo Clinic has an interesting article that outlines the differences between Covid-19, allergies, and flu

Art

In Mr. Hunt’s art class, we are working on our rodeo art project. Students are learning how to draw realistically and are coloring with oil pastel. This is our big contest for the fall semester. With Mrs. Ferguson, we are learning about the proportions of the face and how to draw an accurate portrait with realistic shading.
