Supporting the 7 Habits at home!

7-Habits Take Home Activity for April


This month’s Habit: Habit 5 Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

Activity: Eyes, Ears, Heart Activity

Due Date: March 31, 2021


Habit #5 - Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood


What this means: Listen before you talk. In order to communicate effectively, we must first understand each other.


“I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings.”

“I try to see things from their viewpoints.”

“I listen to others without interrupting.”

“I am confident in voicing my ideas.”

“I look people in the eyes when talking.”


How can I do this in my life?

1. Listen.

2. Put yourself in the other person’s place.

3. Notice a person’s body language, tone, and reflection in their voice.


Great Books for Habit #5-Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

Alejandro’s Gift by Richard E. Albert

The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown

Stellaluna by Janell Cannon

Jamaica’s Find by Juanita Havill

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka

3-19-21 Covid - 19 Updates

CLOSE CONTACT QUARANTINE UPDATE

As you may be aware, the Wayne County Health Department has adjusted the quarantine requirements for students identified as being a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case to 10 days (from the previous requirements of 14). Parents should continue to monitor their child for symptoms and not send them to school where symptoms are present. Additionally, if your child has had COVID-19 in the past 5 months (evidenced by a positive PCR), quarantine is not required. We began following these new requirements immediately and notified all families where an identified close contact quarantine could be shortened under these new rules.


**REMINDER** INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL REQUIREMENTS

The Wayne County Health Department, as indicated on the COVID-19 Daily STUDENT Symptom Screening Tool (2.16.2021), requires that students stay home to quarantine for 7 days from the date they return to the U.S. No earlier than the 7th day of return, a student must have a COVID-10 PCR test and have a negative result before returning to school.



SCREENING FORM UPDATED

Please remember to use the Wayne County Health Department COVID-19 Daily STUDENT Symptom Screening Tool (2.16.2021) each morning to determine if your child can come to school. If your child is a close contact to a positive case, please plan on a 10 day quarantine as the 14 day quarantine will only be required in circumstances where symptoms are present or as required by the health dept or your child's medical care provider.
