When the weather is below zero or raining heavy we will hang a blue flag outside of the school by the office. When you see this blue flag outside it means that children can come inside before school. Grades 3-5 go to the gym and grades K-2 go to the multi-purpose room. If you do not see the blue flag you must stay outside
I hope all of you had a wonderful break and had time to relax and enjoy your families. I feel very blessed to be a staff member at Meadowbrook and enjoy taking care of your children. This time of year there always seems to be “something” going around. Watch for the form I will be sending home with your student discussing general guidelines of when to keep your child home from school. Contact me with any questions. Talk to your provider about getting the flu shot if you have not already. Last, but not least, please discuss and review with your children these healthy habits to practice when sick:
- Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
- Practice good hand-washing with soap and water.
- Avoid touching the eyes, nose, and mouth to keep from introducing germs into the body.
The more the children hear reminders about covering their cough, the more likely they will be to practice it. Thanks for your help and feel free to contact me anytime.
Welcome back to school and Happy New Year!
Nurse Jamie Marvin-Vargas
CAUTION: With Birthday Celebrations, please keep in mind that we have several students
with life threatening food allergies and food related health problems. ONLY food commercially prepared and packaged with an ingredient label are permitted. NO food with nuts or peanuts, or peanut and tree nut oils are to be brought into the classroom.
Please check your child’s account for current balances.
You can pay online or send money to school with your child.
Parents – please help us keep Meadowbrook Elementary safe and secure every day by coming to the main office whenever you come into the building. Lisa and Lori are there to help you and will ensure your student gets their lunch, instrument, homework, library book, etc.
We need your help! Many of our students have cell phone watches now and we have found the need to revisit the cell phone policy from our district Elementary Student Handbook to ensure students are not using these during the school day.
Page 34 of the 2018-2019 handbook states “cell phones may not be used in the building during the school day and they must be turned off and placed in backpack or locker. If students are in violation of this rule, the cell phone will be considered a nuisance object. Students that must make a phone call must use the office phone.”
If your student has a cell phone/watch that they wear to school, please discuss the above policy with them so they understand they are not to be used for texting or calls during the school day.
Thank you for your help with this!
