A Note from our Nurse!
Is It a Cold or the Flu?
The flu usually makes kids feel worse than if they have a cold. But it's not always easy to tell the difference between the two. Here are tips on what to look for — and what to do.
Colds or Flu: Symptoms Guide
Answer these questions to see if your child has the flu or a cold:
- Did the illness come on suddenly?
- Does your child have a high fever?
- Is your child's energy level very low?
- Is your child's head achy?
- Is your child's appetite less than normal?
- Are your child's muscles achy?
- Does your child have chills?
If most of your answers are "yes," chances are your child has the flu. If your answers are mostly "no," it's probably a cold.
When Should I Call the Doctor?
If you have any doubts, it's best to call the doctor. An illness that seems like a cold can turn out to be the flu. And other illnesses, like strep throat or pneumonia, can seem like the flu. Even doctors sometimes need to do a test to know for sure if a child has the flu or a cold.
It's important to get medical care right away if your child:
seems to be getting worse
has trouble breathing
has a high fever
has a bad headache
has a sore throat
What Can Parents Do?
Prevention is the best medicine. Make sure that everyone in your family gets a flu vaccine every year.

Got plastic bags?
Guess what? Plastic shopping bags are recyclable. But if you think you can toss them in with the bottles, cans or cartons in your recycling bin, we have some bad news. Bags require special sorting and processing machines ― and not every recycling plant has those. In most areas of the country, people should not mix plastic bags in with other recyclables. But people do, and on a massive scale, which causes severe technical problems at general recycling facilities.
A group of Maple Dale 4th graders decided to initiate a plastic film recycling collection here at Maple Dale in our continued efforts to be more environmentally friendly. Working with the administration, the students decided to set up a station near the cafeteria to collect not just plastic grocery bags but other types of plastic film such as clean zip-lock bags, dry cleaning bags, bread bags, etc. Click here to see what types of plastic film is recyclable. These bags will then be delivered to an appropriate recycling facility.
Our 4th graders were inspired to start this important efforts due to reasons like the information shared in this article. We are so proud of our 4th graders for their passion and initiative to help save our planet!

Fact: Recycling any aluminium can help to save a great deal of energy, in fact, enough to run your home television for about three hours!
Toilet tissue accounts for 15 percent of deforestation. We throw away enough paper to make toilet paper for a lifetime. Can you spend an extra minute teaching your Kindergartner or other to use less toilet paper?
