NEW WEDNESDAY EARLY RELEASES

Every Wednesday will be an early release  at 2:37pm.  This replaces last year’s  half days on the first Wednesday of the month.  This change is district wide and will provide less disruption to families schedules.


VETERAN’S DAY ASSEMBLY

We would like to honor the men and women who have served or are currently serving in our armed forces.  Please join us for our Veteran’s Day Assembly on Thursday, November 9th, at 1:40 p.m.  The assembly will end at approximately 2:20 p.m.  We hope you will join us!


EXTRA CLOTHES

It’s that time of year again!  Rain, puddles and just yucky weather.  Please make sure your student has an extra change of clothes in their backpack.  We have a very limited supply of clothes in the nurse’s office and will have to call parents to bring clothes if they are needed.  We always welcome donations of pants, especially in smaller sizes (5-8). Thank you.


EMERGENCY KITS

Just a reminder that some students are still missing their emergency kits.  Please turn your student’s kit into their teacher.  Thank you.


BOX TOPS

Box tops will be collected from each classroom on the last Thursday of each month and the class that brings in the most each month will receive a popcorn party.  Please watch for some sheets being sent home for the students to put their cutout box tops on.  This makes things a lot easier for the box top coordinator when counting them to redeem.


October’s winner was Mrs. Lee’s class.  Way to go first graders!!

PBIS UPDATE

Did your student’s tell you about our school wide celebration?  We reached our school wide goal of 3000 eagle feathers and the students were able to choose to between extra recess or a movie in the gym.  We will reset the count and begin earning our next 3000!  November’s theme is Gratitude and classrooms will be talking about ways to show gratitude to others.  As always, at LP Brown we are safe, kind and responsible.

When to keep children home from school…

Fever

  • Children should stay home if their temps rise above 100.4°F. A feverish child is not only considered contagious, but they are probably not feeling well enough to learn or participate. Keep them home until they have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication.

Vomiting

  • If your child has vomited two or more times in 24 hours they should remain home and stay home for 24 hours AFTER the vomiting has stopped.

Diarrhea

  • Kids who have diarrhea more than three times in a day or night should stay home until they have been diarrhea free without the use of medication for 24 hours.

Red eyes

  • When the white part of the child's eye is only slightly pink and the discharge is clear and watery, they likely have a school-safe allergy.

  • If their eye is stuck shut, bright red, and/or oozing yellow or green discharge they should remain home and be seen by their medical provider. These symptoms all indicate the highly contagious bacterial form of pinkeye (conjunctivitis).

Sore throat

  • If the achy throat is accompanied by swollen glands or a fever the student should remain home.

Colds

  • If your child is fever-free and isn't hacking up a storm, they are good to go. After all, if children with snotty noses were excluded, schools would be empty!

  • Your child should stay home if they have a persistent, phlegmy cough, it is accompanied by a fever or wheezing.
