As a reminder when dropping off your student:
- Please pull your car forward to the furthest spot in the drop off lane (lane 1). Please do not stop at the beginning of the drop off lane or mid-way through the drop off lane. Please follow these guidelines rather than dropping your student off in front of their arrival/dismissal door.
- Please do not drop off students in lanes 2 or 3. You may park in these rows. Please do not stop or block the center crosswalk in these lanes. Your child may walk by themself, and/or you may accompany them using the designated crossing areas. Parents and students should use sidewalks at all times and only cross where there is staff supervision.
If there is a 2 hour delay due to inclement weather conditions, and you feel it's unsafe to travel, we respect your decision to keep your student home. If you do decide to stay home, please contact the Sage Office at email@example.com or by phone.
We want all our students and families to be safe and healthy!
Happy December from Nurse Stephanie!
As you prepare for a cozy winter’s break, I wanted to take a moment to share some tips to stay healthy this holiday season. With so many news headlines about respiratory viruses hitting our hospitals hard it is easy to be fearful, but there are a few simple steps we can take to keep our kids and ourselves healthy.
Stay home if you are sick! I know our hearts are longing for tradition and normalcy, but please don’t risk exposing others if you are unwell.
Hydrate with water, limit soda and juice.
Get sufficient sleep and rest. As we enter two long weeks off of school, be sure to schedule some down days to enjoy each other and also give your body a chance to recharge.
Nourish your body with a well-rounded diet, minimizing excess sugar - which feels near impossible with all these yummy treats circling, but it’s worth your attempt!
Wash your hands! Especially before eating and definitely before coming into contact with an infant. Soap and water or hand sanitizer are great choices.
Wipe down surfaces and high-touch surfaces (doorknobs, phones, sink handles) with cleaner frequently
Change your clothes when you get home after being around other people - don’t let those germs get snuggled into your couch or bed! This is especially important if you have a baby at home - as soon as big brother/sister comes through the door at the end of the school day, send them to wash their hands and change into some clean play clothes before saying hi to the baby.
While these steps surely won’t prevent all illnesses, they will definitely help mitigate your risk and exposure. You are doing a great job! I know navigating all of these risks is tough! I am happy to give specific advice, guidance or encouragement should you have a concern, just let me know 🙂
In closing, I wish you and your family the happiest, healthiest, most lovely holiday!
