Dear GES Families:

I hope you are staying warm on this very chilly Saturday! We are excited to begin our One School, One Book literacy program that involves an entire school with families and staff simultaneously reading the same book. We will announce the book's title this Friday during our school wide broadcast. The youngest child in your family will bring home the book this Friday. I am looking forward to reading along with all of you over the next five weeks!

Notes from the Nurse:As of this week we do have confirmed cases of the Flu and are following recommendations regarding the treatment and recovery of Influenza. Just like with any other illness, we ask that parents uphold our school policies and keep children home when they have fevers over 100 degrees, have contagious symptoms of active coughs, vomiting, or diarrhea. It is extremely important that Influenza illness symptoms like fever, body aches, nasal congestion, sore throat, fatigue, and cough be reported to the school nurses.  Children can return to school when they are fever free for 24 hours or more without the use of fever-reducing medications, and their symptoms have subsided. If you are unsure of whether to keep your child home or need medical advice, please contact Nurse Jenn directly. Please see Flu information in the attachment.

Also, please continue to help us educate your child on transmission prevention by role modeling and encouraging good hand-washing techniques and by coughing in your sleeve.  Our custodial staff is alerted and actively involved in our efforts to reduce transmission of illnesses. Please make sure the school office has your correct phone numbers on file, and additional emergency contacts are up to date.  ~Jennifer Johansson MSN BSN RN ext 612
