Daily Announcements-Tuesday

April 28, 2009

Today is Tuesday, April 27th, and it is a B Day for everyone!

We are closely monitoring the recent Swine Flu Outbreak across the country and will be in communication with information as it becomes available. At this point there is no cause for alarm, as there are no confirmed cases in Illinois. Staff and students can do their part to take precautions:

The CDC recommends:

Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze.
Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
If you get sick, CDC recommends that you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.

We have an 11:00 dismissal on Wednesday for Professional Development.

On Thursday, LifeTouch will bring the panoramic camera for the 8th grade "Big Picture. Students may purchase this keepsake, which has all 8th graders and faculty in one picture. Forms will be on Mrs. Heyen's table if you wish to purchase the picture.
