News from the Library
Thank you for an amazing and another record-breaking book fair. We sold over $12,000 at the book fair and raised almost $3,000 for new library books for our Bang Bears.
We appreciate your support and dedication to encouraging a love of reading.
Thank you for the hard work and time given by our volunteers to make our book fair a success. We could not do it without you!
As the end of the school year approaches, we would like to remind you to pick up any medications you provided to the school clinic this year. According to CFISD Board policy FFAC (local), medications must be retrieved from the clinic by a parent/guardian or designated responsible adult. Please plan to pick-up your student’s medications by May 26,2022 no later than 300p.m. Medications not collected by this deadline will be disposed of according to CFISD policy.
Thank you for your assistance,
Allergies and Asthma
In the springtime, we see a lot of cases of asthma and allergies. This is caused by the elevated pollen levels. The following symptoms are common with allergies: fatigue, headaches, sneezing, runny nose and watery eyes. Many of these symptoms can be improved by a cool cloth for the red, watery eyes, and cold pack for the headaches. Approximately 2 million days of school are missed every year due to allergies. Asthma symptoms are also exacerbated this time of the year. Asthma is a condition in which your airway narrows and swells. This produces more secretions causing coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. If you begin to suffer from your asthma symptoms (sometimes called an asthma attack), use medication that was prescribed for this and follow the action plan your doctor gave you. If this is a new condition, stay calm, keep the person up right and seek medical attention. If your student needs more information regarding asthma in a way that makes it easier for them to understand, there is a book Taking Asthma to School by Kim Gosselin. A copy of this book can be signed out of the clinic.
