Reminders & Resources
Recently, I've been mediating with our young students regarding issues that arise due to technology use. While at school, we do our best to monitor Chromebook & iPad use. We have discussions about acceptable sites and apps. We give reminders about not sharing personal information & acceptable chats. Please take the time to ensure your child's safety at home too. Check in on the sites they are using, the games they are playing. A lot of responsibility comes with using technology and even a phone. Is your child ready for it?
I'm also sharing this community link for Ozaukee Family Services. They offer many wonderful opportunities for groups & discussions (most virtual right now) for parents, caregivers, and children of all ages. http://ozaukeefamilyservices.org/workshops/
Why is washing our face masks so important?
Washing your mask is just as important, if not MORE important, than washing any article of clothing. We don’t know exactly how long viruses and bacteria can live on fabrics, but some experts feel it may be up to 8-12 hours on a cloth mask! Imagine after a long day of mask-wearing how many germs you could possibly have on your mask! Yuck. You don’t want to put that dirty mask back on your face.
How often should I wash my mask?
The best practice would be to wash your mask after every use. Wash your mask as often as you can, daily is best! It would be best to have several masks so that you will always have a clean one daily, even when the others are dirty or being washed.
Parents please try to label your child's winter gear - especially snowpants, jackets, and boots with your child's first /last name. Items get misplaced and we don't know the owner!

VERY IMPORTANT COVID REMINDERS
In the event your child or someone in your home is being tested for COVID, please keep your child home until test results are known. It is recommended that direct family members (including other students at school) also stay home. Please notify the District Nurse of your results. Your child/children should engage in remote learning until a back to school date has been determined.
