Hello Friends and Families,
I can't believe it, only two more weeks until summer. To recognize the hard work our students have done, we have a fun filled week for them. Throughout the week we will have students on field trips, Thursday we have lunch on the lawn, Friday Fields Day, and Saturday the Kendall Bug 5k. I can't think of a better way to wrap up the year.
Last Friday, we had our Student of the Month assembly to recognize the fantastic effort and work our students produced. I want to give a special shoutout to our May students of the month.
Next week our Boys Running Club will run a 5k that will raise money to self-rescue swim lessons. Our boys have been training hard to prepare for the race. If you are free on June 10th, I would like to invite you all to join us. The proceeds of the 5k will go to Self Rescue swim lessons. Drowning is the leading cause of death in children ages 1-4, HELP US CHANGE THIS STATISTIC! If you are interested in joining or donating, attached you will find a flyer.

Flu and/or RSV information
Cold and flu season is upon us. Health officials are warning there may be high levels of influenza compared to the past two years, when COVID-19 precautions helped keep flu infections low. As a reminder, please do not send your child to school if they are feeling sick or experiencing symptoms of a virus. Keeping your sick child home will be a great benefit for the health and wellness of our students and staff.
The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness. Some people, such as older people, young children, and people with certain health conditions, are at high risk of serious flu complications. Symptoms of influenza can vary, but generally include a high fever, headache, chills, body aches, sore throat, and cough.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers these tips to prevent influenza:
Get vaccinated every year
Avoid close contact with sick people
Frequently wash hands with soap
Stay at home if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe symptoms should be evaluated by a medical professional.
The influenza vaccine is available at doctors’ offices and retail pharmacies and is covered by medical insurance. People with no health care coverage can get vaccinated at one of the County’s six public health centers or a local community clinic. To find the nearest location, visit the County’s Flu Vaccine Locations page or call 2-1-1 San Diego. The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months and older get vaccinated every year.
La temporada de resfriados y gripa (influenza) ya está aquí. Las autoridades de salud advierten de que puede haber niveles elevados de gripe en comparación con los dos últimos años, en los que las precauciones para COVID-19 ayudaron a mantener bajos los contagios de gripe. Les recordamos que por favor no envíen a sus hijos a la escuela si se sienten enfermos o tienen síntomas de un virus. Que su hijo enfermo se quede en casa será un gran beneficio para la salud y el bienestar de nuestros estudiantes y personal.
La gripa es una enfermedad respiratoria contagiosa causada por los virus de la influenza. Puede causar una enfermedad de leve a grave. Algunas personas, como las personas mayores, los niños pequeños y las personas con ciertas condiciones de salud, tienen un alto riesgo de sufrir complicaciones graves por la gripa. Los síntomas de la gripa pueden variar, pero generalmente incluyen fiebre alta, dolor de cabeza, escalofríos, dolor de cuerpo, dolor de garganta y tos.
Los Centros para el Control de Enfermedades (CDC) ofrecen estos consejos como medidas preventivas contra la gripa:
Evitar contacto cercano con personas enfermas
Lavarse las manos frecuentemente con agua y jabón
Quedarse en casa si experimenta síntomas de gripa
Evitar tocarse los ojos, nariz y boca
Las personas con problemas de salud crónicos o que tienen síntomas severos deben ser evaluados por un profesional médico
Vea más consejos de los CDC [página web en inglés, más información en español en el sitio web de los CDC].
La vacuna contra la gripa está disponible en los consultorios médicos y en las farmacias principales y está cubierta por seguro médico. Las personas sin seguro médico pueden vacunarse en uno de los seis centros de salud pública del condado o en una clínica comunitaria local. Para encontrar la ubicación más cercana, visite la página de ubicaciones de la vacuna contra la gripa del condado [en español] o llame al 2-1-1. Los CDC recomiendan que todas las personas mayores de 6 meses se vacunen cada año.
