BETHKE BISON BULLETIN

Morning Drop Off

Please help us by not using the front parking lot for student drop-off. It is much safer for you to drive your student through the parent pick-up line. Last week, we had so much traffic in the front lot that several students were almost hit by cars. If this continues, we will be forced to close that lot in the morning, forcing everyone to go through the line. This is a HUGE safety issue, and we need your help!

Help Stop the Flu at Bethke!

Our school community continues to be impacted by Influenza. Please help stop the spread of the flu to our students by following the 24 Hour Communicable Illness Policy. KISD Administrative Regulation FFAD is in place to ensure the health and safety of all students and states that students who exhibit vomiting, diarrhea, or a fever 100 degrees or higher (Fahrenheit) must be excluded from school. Re-admittance is allowable as follows:

Free of fever (greater than 100) for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication such as Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen. Common trade names of products containing these medications include, but are not limited to, Tylenol, Motrin or Advil.

•Food and liquids have been tolerated for at least 24 hours without vomiting and/or diarrhea, and without the use of medication to relieve these symptoms.

•Students diagnosed with a contagious illness that is being treated with prescription medication, must complete a minimum of 24 hours of the prescribed medication dosage prior to returning to school.

Please see www.CDC.gov for information on Influenza.
