School Announcements
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE HEALTH OFFICE
As we are now in the middle of the flu season, please bear in mind the following points:†
* If your child exhibits a cough, cold, fever and/or other flu-like symptoms, please keep him or her home from school.
Students who are kept home for fever must be fever free (without medication) for 24 hours.
*If your child complains of feeling sick in the morning, please do not send the child to school with instructions to visit the nurse
By the time a sick student visits the health office, other students have been exposed to contagion and this can be a serious matter.
*If your child comes to school sick, you will be called to come pick him or her up.
*Should your child show signs of illness, please check for a fever with a thermometer, but also bear in mind that not all children who contract the flu develop a fever.† A fever is a temperature of 100 degrees or more.
*It is imperative that we all do our part to keep Travell School healthy during the flu season.

School Wide Read Aloud

To start this year, we chose Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson, author of The Other Side, for its language, illustrations and anti-bullying message. The book starts with Chloe and her friends not wanting to play or include the new girl, Maya. Every time Maya tries to fit in, Chloe and her friends, reject her. Chloe begins to realize how a small act of kindness can affect another person and how that kindness can be spread like ripples in a pond. She reminds us about one anotherís vulnerability, especially in new situations, and how what we say and do can ripple through a classroom, a school, or a community.

We celebrate a new beginning with this wonderful gift from the Home and School.
