Hoover School Recognized by Indiana Department of Education

It is with great pride that we announce to the local community that Mollie B. Hoover Elementary School is one of 10 schools in the state of Indiana that have been newly designated as a Family Friendly School by the Indiana Department of Education. Only 34 schools in the entire state are currently designated as Family Friendly Schools. Jennifer Hall, a Special Education Teacher who is currently working on her building level administrator certification, and Marci Galinowski, Hoover School Principal, have been working for the past year to achieve this designation for Hoover.

Launched in 2015, the Family Friendly Schools designation focuses on addressing the

academic, physical, emotional, and social needs of students, while providing the needed resources and fostering the active involvement of their families through schools and the community. The program recognizes and honors schools that welcome all families into the school community, communicate effectively, support student success, speak up for every child, share power, and collaborate with the community.

OFFICE NOTIFICATIONS NOW COMING BY EMAIL


In our efforts to communicate with parents in a more timely manner, office communications, including DISCIPLINE REPORTS, TEST SCORES, and REPORT CARDS will be emailed to the email address listed in Power School. Emailing these reports will not only allow us to get them to parents in a more timely manner, but also allow us to be more environmentally friendly and fiscally responsible. If you need to update your email address at any time, you can do so on the school website under the FOR PARENTS link.

Notes from the Nurse



Sore Throat vs Strep Throat

I have so many kids come to the clinic and say, “Mrs. Cyr, my throat hurts I think I have strep.” Most do not know that less than 20% of students with sore throats are diagnosed with Strep Throat, most are just viral infections. Here is some info to help distinguish between the two. (Information courtesy of www.cdc.gov)

Strep throat is caused by a bacteria called, group A streptococcus. Strep throat comes on very quickly usually with a high fever. Students complain of pain when swallowing and usually have swollen lymph nodes. Cough, runny nose, and conjunctivitis are not common symptoms seen with strep throat. Strep throat is treated with antibiotics. Studies are showing that students are no longer contagious 12 hours after their first dose of antibiotics and can return to school (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26295745)

In most cases, a virus is the culprit of your sore throat. With this, you will see: cough, runny nose, and sometimes-pink eye. These symptoms happen gradually unlike with strep throat. Hoarseness in your voice (breathy, raspy, or strained) is commonly seen and lymph nodes are rarely swollen. Viral sore throats will not get better with antibiotics. Over the counter medications are given to treat your symptoms, fluids, and rest will usually have you back to normal.



Sincerely,
