It's Going to be a Great Week!

RESTLESS STUDENT?


Elementary aged students get restless and bored. They miss the social connections they have with their peers and the predictability of school. Taking some time to get moving can help lift their mood. Try doing a family dance workout together set to popular KIDZ BOP music:

NO DEVICE? NO INTERNET?

GET CONNECTED


If you do not have internet, there are some providers that are reaching out to provide internet to families who need it so we can stay better connected.

Charter Communications announced on March 13, 2020 that for 60 days the company will offer free Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access to homes with K-12 students who do not already have a subscription. Installation fees will also be waived for these households. Enroll by calling 844-488-8395. Charter will also continue Spectrum Internet Assist, a program offering low-cost broadband internet of 30 Mbps for low-income households without school-aged children.

Comcast, which owns Xfinity, will offer 60 days free and increased speeds for new families who join the Internet Essentials program, an internet access program for low income families that is normally $9.95 a month.

AT&T announced on Friday it would not cancel service and would waive late fees for any wireless, home phone, broadband residential or small business customer experiencing hardships because of the coronavirus pandemic and can't pay their bills. Qualifying low income households can apply for $10 a month internet access through the Access from AT&T program. Fixed Wireless Internet and Wireline customers can use unlimited internet data. AT&T will also keep public Wi-Fi hotspots open.


NEED A DEVICE?


If you are able to obtain internet access at home for your student(s), but do not currently have an internet accessible device (ipad, laptop, chromebook) for your student(s) to use to complete online work, please call the Hoover School Office for assistance with borrowing a device for your student during this temporary closure.

Notes from the Nurse

This week is National Poison Prevention Week. Did you know that more than 47,000 children under the age of 6 are evaluated in the emergency room per year for possible medicine poisoning? Safe Kids provides resources and tips for families to help prevent those scary trips to the ER. The latest report reveals surprising ways that kids are getting into medicine and what parents can do to prevent it. If you are interested in reading this report, please click on the link below:


https://www.safekids.org/research-report/keeping-kids-safe-around-medicine-insights-and-implications


Five Things Parents need to know to keep kids safe around medicine:



  1. Where medicine is stored vs where medicine is kept: medicines that are used every day are often kept in purses, nightstand (places where kids can explore)

  2. Child-resistant vs Child-proof: child resistant will slow them down but not prevent them from opening it.

  3. What you think your kid can do vs what your kid can do: stories about kids getting into medicine often started with that moment of surprise.

  4. Candy vs medicine: to young children they can look alike- keep them out of reach and sight.

  5. Your home vs their home: be alert for medicines visitors may bring in your home
