Message(s) from the Principal 12/14/22
Due to high rates of illness among both the students and staff, we are postponing our ALICE training with students to Thursday, January 12th. Similarly, I am postponing the parent information session to Tuesday, January 10th. You can still access the training materials using the following link: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1nJ3FWm3iku6v_8pdIlf617x5P7ycr-aQ7UAeSW_nYQY/edit?usp=sharing
We will not be having One Trusted Adult tomorrow, but will have a regular schedule instead.
Speaking of illness, Nurse Maddy asked that I pass the following message along to students and parents:
We are experiencing high levels of absenteeism due to colds, flu, COVID-19, and gastro-intestinal illness. See below for steps your family can take to prevent the spread of illness this season.
Keep sick children at home. If your child is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19/Flu ( fever, cough, sore throat, headaches, body aches, fatigue, vomiting, diarrhea etc) please keep them home and contact your healthcare provider.
Report symptoms and absences to the School Nurse (744-8162 X 2510)
Encourage frequent and thorough hand washing with warm water and soap. This is the best way to prevent the spread of germs.
Remind children to not share food, utensils and drinks with others.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
The Newfound Memorial Middle School will be starting a community care closet called The Bear Essentials . This amazing resource will be available for no cost to all students. All clothing and shoes are in gently used condition. Personal care items are all new.
