From Mrs. Rosenberger, RN
What’s “going around” at school right now? Flu season is in full swing and we are still seeing Covid-19 infections. How can you tell the difference? Only a lab test can tell for sure, but this link is helpful: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/symptoms/flu-vs-covid19.htm
Is your child eligible for a COVID -19 booster? Discuss options with your child’s healthcare provider. https://www.healthychildren.org/English/tips-tools/ask-the-pediatrician/Pages/when-can-children-get-the-COVID-19-vaccine.aspx
Ask your child’s healthcare provider if your child should get the flu vaccine. It is easily accessible through our county’s free flu clinics, primary care providers and pharmacies.
Children & the Flu Vaccine
Children are encouraged to see their pediatrician for vaccination.
Children without a pediatrician, under the age of 5, should attend the scheduled "preschool/daycare/family clinics".
Children ages 6 months to 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. If a legal guardian, please bring proper documentation.
Children under the age of 9 receiving flu immunizations for the first time need a second shot at least 4 weeks after the 1st.
Preschool children attending a licensed daycare facility must have received their mandatory flu immunization before December 31st to be allowed to attend daycare the following year.
Throughout the month of October, our students will be participating in various age appropriate activities to recognize the Week of Respect (October 3rd -7th), NJ School Violence Awareness Week (October 16th - 21st) and Red Ribbon Week (October 23rd - 31st). The primary focus of the activities is to encourage all of our students to make healthy choices and demonstrate respect for themselves, their fellow students and their community.
As a culminating activity, we will have a “Spirit Week” with themes each day during the week of October 24th.
The themes are as follows:
Monday, October 24th – “Paws off to Drugs.” – Everyone will wear black and orange.
Tuesday, October 25th – “Team Up Against Drugs.” – Everyone will wear a team jersey/t-shirt.
Wednesday, October 26th– “RED-y To Live A Drug Free Life” - Everyone will wear red.
Thursday, October 27th – “Being Drug Free is No Sweat” - Everyone will wear a sweatshirt or sweatpants.
Friday, October 28th - “I’m a Jean-ius I’m Drug Free” – Everyone will wear jeans.
Date: Monday, October 31, 2022
Time: 2:00-2:30 p.m. (Memorial School’s parade is 1:00-1:30)
Place: Kindle Playground
Enter by the playground gates on Highland Terrace. Sign-in and receive a Visitor’s Badge to wear during the parade.
Please stand on the outside of the cones so there will be room for the students as they parade out. The parade will begin promptly at 2:00-so come early to sign-in!
Students will parade around the playground multiple times with their homerooms.
Food Pantry Collection! We will be collecting canned goods for the local food pantry! Please bring non-perishable food items to the parade. They are currently in need of: peanut butter, jelly, tuna and canned vegetables. (No cereal at this time)
Just a friendly reminder: Please use good judgment when selecting a costume for your child. Pretend weapons, excessively scary, or bloody costumes are not permitted. Thank you!
