RHS Weekly Update
October 28, 2022
New This Week
Academy Partner Signing
Our academy model allows us to do some really great things at RHS, but none of that would be possible without some fantastic people and businesses who support our school. We have many business partners that work with us by providing equipment, advice, guest speakers, industry tours, job shadows, and internships. But there are a few who go the extra mile to really engage with our students and support what we do; these are our official Academy Partners and we honored four new partnerships this week. If you ever wondered what those logos on our commons wall are (pic to the right), those are our official Academy Partners. This week's newsletter includes a story with more information.
Each week, our students produce a weekly newsletter to share all the wonderful things going on at Romeo High School. Please take a few minutes to read through.
Message from the District Nurse
With the weather changing, parents have been asking for guidance regarding when to keep kids home from school and for how long. Here is some information for you all:
Cold, stomach bug and flu season is upon us. Here are a few reminders about when to keep your student home to rest:
Fever greater than 100, without the help of fever reducing medications
Vomiting (even if it happened once)
General malaise or feelings of fatigue, discomfort, weakness or muscle aches
Frequent congested (wet) or croupy cough
If your student has a confirmed case of an illness from the Doctor (Strep, Influenza, Covid, etc.) please let the office know when you report their absence.
Students may return to school if:
Fever free for 24 hours, without the use of fever reducing medication
Vomiting free for 24 hours
Symptoms have resolved or otherwise directed by a doctor
Student Carry Medications:
Students who carry medications on them at school (motrin, epi-pen, tylenol) MUST have a doctor order on file with the Med Office. This order must be signed by the doctor and parent. These can be found on the RCS website.
–For those students that do have orders on file and self-carry medications, please remember that there is a special responsibility that goes along with carrying medication. This is a great time to have students who self-carry communicate with their teachers/coach/bus driver and show them where their medication is kept, especially if it were to ever possibly be needed in an emergency situation. Please remind your student their medication is to only be taken by YOU, the student, and not shared with others for any reason.
