A Note From The Clinic

Health Alert from our School Nurse, Victoria Kuzmierczak:

If your child is being sent home for vomiting, diarrhea, fever, COVID symptoms, Influenza symptoms, pink eye symptoms and/or other possible contagious illness:

  • Your child MUST be fever/vomiting/diarrhea free for 24 hours without the use of medication before they can return to school. If they come to school before then, you will be called to come pick them up. (This is a district wide policy set to prevent the spread of illness)
  • If the doctor prescribes your child antibiotics, they MUST be on the antibiotic for 24 hours before returning to school.
  • If your child is diagnosed with COVID-19, Influenza (The Flu), Lice, Staph infection, Ringworm, or any other contagious illness, NOTIFY the campus nurse ASAP.

Thank you in advance!

8th Grade 4-Year Planning Lesson #3

Parents, I will be meeting with your child to go over the final stage of four year planning starting the week of December 5th. The schedule is noted below. Please ask your child to show you what we have been working on in Naviance. This 4-year plan is only practice and does not define the courses they desire to take for high school. Counselors will eventually come around to use the courses listed in their 9th grade year, but there is plenty of time to prepare for this process. A 9th grade choice sheet has been shared with students in my google classroom so they can view this in advance.

Mental Health Minute

In an effort to promote mental health awareness and reduce the stigma of seeking help for mental health concerns, the Leander ISD Counseling Services team is excited to continue the Mental Health Minute video series. Check out this video about unhealthy friendships.

Love And Logic Classes At RBMS

This six-week program is designed to help parents nurture responsible, respectful, fun-to-be-around children who will learn how to make their own choices, own their problems, think critically and logically for themselves, while parents let empathy and consequences do the teaching. The course is appropriate for parents with any aged child and any situation: home, school or even work. The series is open to any parent. Visit the Love and Logic site (https://www.loveandlogic.com/) or attend a free introductory session for more information about their philosophy.

The cost is $35 per person or $55 per couple (if sharing materials). Scholarships are available.
