BCE NEWS

As you may have seen on the news, the flu season is in full swing. Please take the time to read the following to ensure our students are healthy and our school environment is safe.

As a precaution, and as is custom this time of year, our custodians are working hard to disinfect common surface areas such as water fountains, rails, restroom surfaces, doorknobs, etc. and keeping restroom areas stocked with soap and paper towels.

If your child has a fever (100 degrees or higher) or is vomiting in the evening or morning before school, he/she should NOT come to school that day. Students with a fever should remain home fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen. Please report communicable diseases such as strep and flu to the nurse as we would like to continue to track our illnesses/absences.

Please see the following information on the flu with helpful reminders to share with your student(s): goo.gl/uMKU8u.


Thanks for all you do at home to keep our students as healthy as possible and in school!

COUNSELING CORNER

For the month of February, we will be promoting Kindness at Barton Creek Elementary. There is a school-wide kindness challenge this month, sponsored by BCE's No Place for Hate student ambassadors. All students are encouraged to choose a kindness challenge from one of the colorful buckets around the school and offer that kindness to another student. In counseling, the lessons will focus on kindness, connecting it to courage, hope and the importance of being present with others.


"A kind thought, word, or action creates infinite ripples of caring, consideration, and peace." --Amy Leigh Mercree
