7 Habits at Home: Become a Transition Person

A link between fast and future habits:

A highly proactive person can stop the transmission of negative patterns by modeling positive behavior and passing on effective habits that strengthen and build others in a positive way.

Discuss with your family how negative behaviors of others have affected you. How might you be passing them along? Brainstorm where you could be a transition person and pass on positive behaviors .

Nurse Notes

Dear Lone Star Families,

Another week and we are without Covid germs at LSE! We have had several students with complaints of sore throats this week. We have scanned foreheads for temperatures, listened to lungs, clipped blood oxygen level sensor to fingers and checked sense of smell with strong vanilla extract. We call parents to find out if any symptoms are NEW to their child. We may ask parents to keep their child home for 24 hours and monitor symptoms at home. If they do not get better but worse, we touch bases, and that child may need to be home 10 days OR get checked out by their doctor OR a negative Covid test. We also ask for any documentation from the physician or lab. That is what Mrs. Johnson and I do all day between passing out ice packs for various bumps and lumps and sticking band-aids to various scrapes and scratches. We appreciate all the home screening of your children for new or unusual symptoms each morning. It certainly has helped!

Please call or email if you have any questions or concerns.
