Starry Nurse Notes

Winter 2016

WINTER IS UPON US!

With the cold temperatures, please be sure you are sending all the appropriate winter gear with your child each day. If they do not have snow pants and boots, they will be required to have blacktop only recess. Hats and gloves should also always accompany your child. As stated in our handbook, we will have outdoor recess when the windchill is above zero (without precipitation or hazardous conditions).


I am seeing frequent complaints of chapped lips and dry skin. If your child is experiencing these common winter ailments, please help them apply chapstick and lotion before school so they can be comfortable throughout the day.


Thank you for your help with these "winter woes"!

Cough Drops At School?

If students bring cough drops to school, we ask that they bring them to the Nurse's Office for safe-keeping & monitoring throughout the day. Cough drops are considered an over-the-counter medication and are monitored as such in the elementary school setting. Signed parental consent must be on file in order for students to have cough drops. We do not allow students to have cough drops before recess, PE or music class. If your child is experiencing a cough requiring cough drops for more than a few days, a visit to the doctor is recommended. Also encourage your child to drink plenty of water throughout the day to help with dry throats and coughs. Starry students are allowed to bring a water bottle to school.

Win With Wellness 2016!

Thank you to everyone who has been participating in our school-wide health challenge! It has been wonderful to see the results of our first few weeks! Our students are doing a wonderful job on forming health habits in 2016!


**Please note: I've had a few questions regarding whether the tracking sheets can be turned in on Monday so that points can be tracked for the previous Friday. This is perfectly fine! This project is a work in progress so I knew there would be some fine tuning. :)


Keep up the great work!!
