The Nashua News
Parents, thank you for actively participating in your child's education. It has been wonderful to see parents coming in for conferences these past couple of weeks. It is important that your child sees you proactive and involved in their education. Our teachers truly appreciate your support and look forward to working closely with you this year, thanks again!
We are beginning our 2nd quarter of school and our staff is working diligently with our students to support academic success. Our teachers continue to provide students with rigorous learning experiences, are providing additional support to close academic gaps, and pushing high learners to excel further. I wish all of our students and families a joyous Thanksgiving this year. Enjoy the time off with your family; please don't forget students return back from break on November 27th.

Please be sure your child comes to school each day prepared for outdoor recess. They should have a winter coat, as well as hats and gloves. If it snows, we will go outside once the blacktop has been cleared of snow and ice. Also, students wait outside in the morning as buses arrive--they need to be warmly dressed then too!
Nurse Amber's Notes
Is it just a cold or the Flu?
Often times, it may be difficult to tell the difference. Symptoms can be very similar, but in general, the flu makes you feel worse. And the flu is more likely to result in more serious health problems such as pneumonia, bacterial infections, or hospitalizations.
Nasal Congestion or Runny Nose
Extreme Body Aches
Fever and or Chills
Headache (moderate to severe)
Vomiting and/or Diarrhea (this symptom is more common in children)
The common cold may last 14-21 days before symptoms completely disappear. You should seek an evaluation from your healthcare provider if you have a fever of 100.4 F or higher or if symptoms are persistent or severe. You can learn more about these facts and other at the CDC website. In addition, you can track flu activity in our area by checking the flu activ- ity map, updated weekly. www.cdc.gov/flu/about/disease/index.htm
