News and Events For This Week
As you may have heard on the news, there are reports that the Enterovirus that is causing illness in children across the Northwest has come to the Seattle area. Children’s Hospital held a press conference on the virus last night. Below is information from King County Public Health.
The majority of those who get this virus have much milder symptoms such as runny nose or cough and may or may not have a fever.
This year’s flu shot does not include vaccination against it.
The virus usually causes cold-like symptoms, but sometimes comes with severe respiratory symptoms like coughing and difficulty breathing.
Children with asthma and respiratory issues are at the most risk for any complications. Children and adults with asthma should be sure to have their symptoms under control and see a health care provider if they develop a respiratory infection and their asthma worsens.
Children don’t need to see a doctor unless they have severe and worsening cold symptoms or difficulty breathing.
Staff and children can help protect themselves from respiratory illnesses by following these steps:
- Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
- Avoid kissing, hugging, and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who are sick
- Disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as toys and doorknobs, especially if someone is sick
- Catch your cough in your sleeve to reduce spread
- Prevent respiratory illness by getting your flu shot.
CURRICULUM NIGHT will be held on two different nights this year.
The first night will be for Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades. It will be held on Tuesday, September 16th from 6:30-8:00 pm.
The second night will be for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades held on Monday, September 22nd from 6:30-8:00.
This is an adults-only night, so Kid’s Inc. will be available both nights for those unable to make their own child care arrangements. Reservations only- Melissa @ 783-8185 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Curriculum night is your opportunity to:
- Learn about classroom routines and curriculum from the homeroom teachers.
- Talk with our specialists (PE, health, library, Resource Room, Instructional Support,
- Spanish, Computer Lab and Counselor.)
- Sign up for your child’s parent/teacher conference bring your calendar
- Talk with our administration
This is not a time for a personal conference about your child. These happen in November or when you make an appointment with your child’s teacher. There will be one presentation for each classroom. Grades 4 and 5 will also have a math class session. If you have students in adjacent grades that conflict, please let your teacher know and plan on splitting your time.
School is in full swing and it is great!
Thank you and see you on Monday,
Each year there are five teacher in-service trainings and students are released from school two hours early. West Woodland offers an exciting selection of workshops, called Wacky Wednesday workshops, on these early-release afternoons to enrich your child’s education.
