FORNEY HIGH SCHOOLS WEEKLY NEWSLETTER- 11/17/2020
FHS Good Things!
Capturing Kids Hearts
Forney High is a Capturing Kids Hearts campus. We believe that in order for students to learn, we must first have strong relationships with each individual. At FHS, our teachers and staff greet every student every day because "if you have a child's heart, you have their mind."
Teachers and students work together to develop Social Contracts, which outline how we are expected to treat one another. As part of Capturing Kids Hearts, we also give affirmations to students and teach them how to affirm one another as well. Students have opportunities to share good things and to learn about their classmates. Students learn to self-manage their behaviors and learning environment. Each month we will focus on a different aspect and integrate this into our campus communication.
Our focus this month is Gratitude.
A Note From Our Nurse
Note from Nurse Crane
As we have entered into the flu season, please remember to be diligent in monitoring your child or yourself for all symptoms that could be cold, flu or Covid related. Please keep your child that reports a fever, headache, sore throat, cough and/or a runny nose at home.
Complete the Self Report Form
STAY HOME *QUARANTINE
Until 14 days after last exposure (or lab confirmed positive person began having symptoms) and monitor your symptoms. Check temp twice a day.
NOTE: Negative test results for the exposed person will not lessen quarantine days. If you have concerns, contact your healthcare provider.
What’s the Difference?
* Quarantine: For someone who has been exposed. Stay home, social distance from others, monitor for symptoms for 14 days regardless of test results.
** Isolate: For those infected w/ symptoms or positive test results. Stay home, avoid being around others even in your own household. Stay in a specific “sick room” if possible, with your own bathroom for 10 days.
For staff & students experiencing any COVID symptoms, please be sure to complete the FISD
Close Contact/Direct Exposure
