• Middle School Orientation

     

     

    Dear Parents/ Guardians of 6th grade students. Some of our 6th grade students will be attending either Abbott, Kimball, Ellis, or Kenyon Woods for middle school. Where your child attends middle school depends on the program your child is in (i.e., Dual Language), home school, and attendance area. If your child is scheduled to attend Kimball middle school starting in the 2019-2020 school year then this notice is to share that  an Exploratory Course Open House and Orientation for parents and their 6th grade child is scheduled for Thursday, December 13th from 6:30-8:00 pm at Kimball.

    Also, if your child is attending Kimball next year, a school visit has been scheduled for Wednesday, December 12 during the day. Transportation has already been confirmed. Students attending other middle schools next year, such as Abbott Middle School, will also attend a student orientation in December. Additional school information will be provided by the respective schools in the weeks ahead.

    News from the Health Office:

     It’s that time of year again when things that crawl and make our heads itch become a problem. We expect a few cases of lice every year. While certainly not an epidemic, a few extra steps on your part will help to reduce the spread. Because research has shown that mass screening is not effective, the Nurses no longer screen entire classrooms. The best prevention is for you to examine your student’s hair on a regular basis and to remind them not to share combs, hats, scrunchies, barrettes, etc.  If you notice they are scratching their heads, please look for the cause.  If they have lice, please treat them and let the Health Office know. If you need information on prevention and/or treatment, please call the Health Office.  There are many web sites as well.  Lice aren’t lethal, just a nuisance. Thank you for helping us keep our students healthy.

    ALERTA DE PIOJOS:

     Es la época del año en la que esas cosas que pican y caminan en nuestra cabeza se vuelven un problema. Aunque esperamos algunos casos de piojos cada año, unos pocos pasos de su parte ayudarán a reducir el riesgo de contagio y evitar que esto se convierta en una epidemia. Las investigaciones han demostrado que la revisión masiva no es efectiva, por esta razón la enfermera de la escuela no realiza este procedimiento a todos los estudiantes. La mejor prevención es que usted revise el cabello de su hijo(a) regularmente y le recuerde siempre que no debe compartir peines, peinetas, sombreros, gorros, ganchos, pasadores, etc. Si usted nota que su hijo(a) se rasca insistentemente la cabeza, por favor revísele su cabello. Si encuentra que su niño(a) tiene piojos, por favor realícele el tratamiento adecuado y notifique a la enfermería de la escuela. Si necesita alguna información acerca de cómo prevenir o tratar este problema, por favor llame a la enfermería de la escuela. También puede encontrar mucha información en diferentes sitios en la Internet. Los piojos no son peligrosos para la salud, pero si son muy molestos. Gracias por ayudarnos a mantener a nuestros estudiantes saludables.
