Nurse's Notes

Dear Lone Star Families,

Dear Lone Star Families,

I have spent most of my time this week on the phone or answering emails. We appreciate all the rapid communication from parents of students with positive Covid testers in their home. I have heard many times this week that this is a test a parent hopes their child would fail! I have not heard of any of our LSE students or siblings that have been hospitalized . For this we are very grateful.

A look at the Covid tracker (link below) will show the wave has been increasing. LSE will begin today notifying parents by email if an individual in their child's homeroom has tested positive in the previous few days. Email notifications will go out on Tuesday afternoons of the cases reported that day and the day before. Also, each Friday afternoon, email letters will go to each homeroom parent of any class with a Covid positive individual reported later that same week. This will help parents to watch more closely their child's symptoms to keep them home for a day or 2 for anything unusual. And then getting them to a doctor or tested before returning to school if still not 100%.

Regarding testing, MISD free Covid testing center has been swamped ,as well as local clinics and pharmacies that test. It is also difficult to find home Covid testing kits at CVS or Walmart. MISD will soon post job a opening to help out with free MISD Covid testing for students and staff. Other duties will include communicating with the Montgomery County Health Department . PPE provided! That is an inside scoop! You heard it first because you read LSE Nurse's Notes!

Please continue to reach out to me for any questions or concerns.

Counselor's Corner

Time flies when you are having fun! It is hard to believe we have already completed two full weeks of school. Each year around this time, the new school year excitement begins dwindling down. Some students begin to feel stress and frustration. Although the school year has started, the transition does not fully end. Establish a few nightly routines to help keep things going strong! Have time set aside for relaxation time, homework, meals, and extracurricular activities. Make sure that these times are consistent, but be flexible! You may have a homework-light night or just want to watch a movie as a family. It’s important to remember that no transition is going to be completely smooth, but having consistent routines help to make it a bit less challenging.

All the best,

Grace Smith
