Mrs. Perez's Update

Healthy Ways to Cope with Stress

  • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including those on social media. It’s good to be informed, but hearing about the pandemic constantly can be upsetting. Consider limiting news to just a couple times a day and disconnecting from phone, tv, and computer screens for a while.

  • Take care of your body.

  • Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.

  • Connect with others. Talk with peopleexternal icon you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.

Connect with your community- or faith-based organizations. While social distancing measures are in place, try connecting online, through social media, or by phone or mail.

Head lice

Head lice are a common problem that usually affects school-aged children and their families. They can attach to the hair of anyone's head. It doesn't matter if the hair is clean or dirty. Head lice are also found worldwide in all different places, such as in homes or schools or the country or city. And it doesn't matter how clean, dirty, rich, or poor the place or person is.


Though head lice may be a nuisance, they don't cause serious illness or carry any diseases. Head lice can be treated at home, but it's important to check with the doctor first.

ATTENDANCE

Dear Parents,


Attendance is a key factor to having your child succeed in school. Therefore, it is very important that your child is at school on time. . . EVERYDAY. Students who miss just one or two days of school each month can fall seriously behind and lead to doing poorly in school and are more likely to not graduate. Every absence even if it is excused matters. They are missing learning when they are not here.


You are key to improving your child’s attendance.


On the flyer below there are a couple tips on how your child can be at school on time.



Sincerely,


Your Office Staff
