Limited Transporation for Free Breakfast and Lunch
I wanted to reach out to everyone due to the current concern over the Coronavirus. I am sending out links from the CDC with different tips and recommendations on how to stay healthy. The best way to stay healthy is take good care of ourselves (good handwashing skills, eat healthy foods, get a good night's rest, and practice stress reducing activities/limit stress). The CDC recommends that children ages 6-12 have 9-12 hours of sleep per night and children ages 13-18 have 8-10 hours of sleep. Please remove all electronic devices (smart phones, computers, TV’s) from children’s bedroom to ensure they are getting enough sleep. Also, please be aware that the children respond to our worries and concerns. If we can remain calm but concern, it will help prevent stress and panic among them. Many students have come to me requesting masks and gloves. The CDC does not recommend use of masks for healthy individuals. Therefore, I will not be handing out any of these items. The masks are meant for those who are sick or those who are taking care of individuals who are sick. If you are sick, you need to stay home. I am more than happy to have this conversation with anyone who may need more information.
If you have any questions or concerns, I am more than happy to address them as best as I can. Take good care of yourselves.
