Symptoms can include: fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills, feeling tired and sometimes vomiting and diarrhea (more common in children than adults). Some people with flu will not have a fever.
If your child has a fever of 100.0 or greater, they must stay home and be fever free for a full 24 hours, without being given any fever reducing medication (tylenol or ibuprofen) before returning to school.
If your child is diagnosed with the flu or has a fever, please be sure to email their homeroom teacher and Nurse Sarah at email@example.com
Substitute Teachers NEEDED!
Can you think of a time when completing a challenging task required you to follow specific steps to perfection in order to achieve success? Maybe that time you had to assemble the newest piece of IKEA furniture or completing your taxes? It required you to persevere and power through until you were satisfied, even if you experienced frustration along the way.
At Orchard Park, we want our students to engage in opportunities we call productive struggle. We want our students to tackle a task that is challenging and requires grit to continue.
Carol Dweck, author of the best selling book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success writes “If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can teach their children to do is to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning.”
See this article for some helpful information about Productive Struggle.
Every year in November, we think about those within our school community who are less fortunate. Today, we ask you to open your hearts to those families by helping us provide Thanks-GIVE-ing meals.
We will be accepting donations through our PTO website https://orchardparkpto.membershiptoolkit.com/ until November 16th. If you have any questions, please let us know.
And as always, thank you for all you do in support of our school and school community!
