Principal’s Message January 24, 2020

 

Dear Anne Fox Community,
​​​​​​​
Our priority at Anne Fox is to ensure students are safe. This includes arrival and dismissal time. If you are driving your child to school, please utilize the Drop and Go system that will be in place until Spring Break. The parking lot is open from 8:20-8:32 and supervised by staff. This will eliminate students being dropped off on side streets and dangerous intersections. We appreciate your cooperation with this important matter.

PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports)
The Cool Tool for the month of February is Pride in our Spaces. This Cool Tool encourages students to take pride in our school by taking care of the building. We will be focusing on how we can keep things clean in all areas of our school like the hallway, classroom, the gym, and the restrooms.

Jet’s Pizza – February Order Form
Our February Jet’s Pizza order form was sent home last week – look for the bright neon green order form!  Please complete one form per student and return by January 31, 2020.   Thank you for supporting our PBIS recognition programs. Jets Pizza February Order Form.pdf

From the Nurse
Causes for sore throats include viruses, bacteria and allergens. Viruses are the most frequent cause. Strep throat is a bacterial infection caused by A Streptococcus bacteria.

Symptoms

·         Sore throat

·         Fever that begins suddenly

·         Red throat, sometimes with white patches

·         Tender, swollen glands in neck

·         Vomiting

Diagnosis

·         Throat culture performed by medical professional

·         Rapid strep test is quicker but is not as reliable

Transmission

·         Spread by person-to-person contact

·         Spread indirectly through articles soiled with nasal secretions or saliva

·         Symptoms begin 1-3 days after exposure to illness

 

Treatment

·         Antibiotics are prescribed and taken as directed by physician

·         Student should remain home from school for 24-48 hours after starting the antibiotics

·         Student should remain home until they are fever free for 24 hours (without fever reducing medication)

·         Follow the course of treatment to prevent complications such as rheumatic fever

If your child develops symptoms similar to those of strep infection, please contact your physician. Inform the school nurse of a confirmed case. Remember that good hand washing is the number one way to prevent the spread of communicable disease.

Causas del dolor de garganta incluyen virus, bacterias y alérgenos. Los virus son la causa más frecuente. La faringitis estreptocócica es una infección bacteriana causada por la bacteria A estreptocócica.

Síntomas

·         Dolor de garganta

·         Garganta roja, algunas veces con manchas blancas

·         Las glándulas del cuello se ponen suaves e inflamadas

·         Vómitos

 

Diagnóstico

·         Una prueba rápida de estreptococo es más rápida pero no es tan confiable

Causas

·         Transmitida por contacto de persona a persona

·         Transmitida indirectamente a través de objetos contaminados con secreción nasal o saliva

·         Los síntomas comienzan 1-3 días después de haber estado expuesto a la enfermedad

Tratamiento

·         Los antibióticos prescritos por el doctor deben ser tomados tal como él lo indique

·         El estudiante debe permanecer en casa de 24-48 horas después de comenzar con los antibióticos

·         Los estudiantes deben permanecer en casa hasta que estén libres de fiebre durante 24 horas (sin medicamentos para reducir la fiebre)

·         Seguir el curso del tratamiento para evitar complicaciones como fiebre reumática

Si su hijo/a desarrolla síntomas similares a los de la infección por estreptococo(faringitis), por favor contacte a su doctor. Informe a la enfermera de la escuela de un caso confirmado. Recuerde que lavarse bien las manos es una de las mejores maneras para prevenir la transmisión de enfermedades contagiosas.
