LSES EVENTS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
Digital Citizenship Week
During the week of October 3-7, we will be learning about various aspects of Digital Citizenship. A different area will be featured each day accompanied by special dress up days. Hopefully, what the students learn will be used throughout their lives. It should be another fun week of learning!
Dear Parents and Guardians,
It has come to our attention that a number of our elementary students are watching and interacting with online games that depict graphic, realistic scenes of violence that are now resulting in children acting out these behaviors on the playground or bringing items to school. We appreciate the fact that children have active imaginations, however, we encourage you to discuss these with your child.
The following is a list of games that may not be intended for children and could be extremely violent:
- Huggie Wuggie
- Cartoon Cat
- Among Us
- Five Nights of Freddy’s
- Friday Night Funkin
- Squid Game
- Dead Pool
- Slender Man
Even if they are not playing games, similar content may be shared by fans through social media platforms, YouTube and the internet.
Living as ethical, kind, and contributing digital citizens is paramount when inhabiting the digital world--a world that can change in an instant. Due to this ever-changing digital landscape and the need for researched-based, current, appropriate materials for digital citizenship instruction, we encourage you to visit https://www.commonsensemedia.org/ for more information.
As partners in education, we share this information, so you are aware of our concerns regarding these online games. The connection between home and school is so important.
Thank you for your support and partnership in keeping your children safe.
Important Information from Nurse:
If your child is going to be taking any prescription medications while at school, parents can bring the medications to the nurse this week from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. and complete the necessary forms.
Also, if your child has any health issues requiring medications on an as needed basis, you can bring those in this week as well and complete the proper forms for administration.
All medications must be in the original container.
Children are not allowed to transport any type of medications to or from school, this includes either prescription or over the counter medications.
