Another point that was made in the meeting focused on intruder drills and making sure every classroom door has a window cover (if you do not please email Dr. Sladek). Also during intruder drills making sure you pull the blinds on the outside windows or get students to a the safe corner - where they cannot be seen from any windows or door.
Being Proactive and "The Flu" dunnn dunn dun
I would encourage a class meeting about hand washing, drinking lots of water, etc.
Nurse Cara has put together a letter that she is sending home with parents as needed but it is good for all of us to refer to in order to make sure the same message is being relayed! See the flyer below:
No PLCs this week.
This can be a stressful week as we work many hours and feel drained. Make sure to take care of yourself first and foremost.... then make sure to be contagious!
An awesome idea I read about this weekend is having a Gratitude Journal.

With that in mind I want to leave this here for you:
I am grateful for you! Sometimes I forget to thank the people who make life function and enjoyable in so many ways. Sometimes I forget to tell them how much I really do appreciate them for being so important in my life and throughout each day. SO THANK YOU, all of you, for just being YOU! I am thankful for you and all you do.
