Parents Can Help Children Become Responsible Citizens Citizens in a democratic society have many rights . . . but they also have responsibilities. Here are five ways parents can help their children grow up to become responsible citizens:  Set a good example. Take an active role in your community. Attend a meeting of your city council or school board. Take your child with you.  Expect your child to do things for the good of the family. Help them see that when everyone contributes, everyone benefits.  Take part in community service projects as a family. Clean up trash in a nearby park. Set up a paper recycling program. Help children with disabilities enjoy physical activity. Or, choose another activity your family can do together.  Learn about current events. Choose an issue that affects your neighborhood or community. Read about it in the local newspaper and watch news programs for more information. Perhaps you and your child could attend a meeting on the subject.  Teach your child the importance of fair play. Winning isn't everything. Children should learn to take pride in doing their best—not being the best.

Page 4 The Howler September 23rd, 2016 News from the Health Office Parents, we are seeing a significant number of ill children this week, most with fever and vomiting. Please, remember a student may not return to school until they have been fever free (<100 without medication) for 24 hours. That means if we send a student home from school with a fever, they should not return to school the next day. In addition, students who do not feel well enough to participate in classroom activities for whatever reason should be kept home. Nurse Terri Boise School District / Parents & Patrons / Health Services / Parent Information / Guidelines for Keeping Sick Children Home Guidelines for Keeping Sick Children Home GUIDELINES FOR KEEPING SICK CHILDREN HOME Each day many parents are faced with a decision: should they keep their sick child at home or send them off to school? Often the way a child looks and acts can make the decision an obvious one. Please consider these guidelines:  Colds: Please keep your child at home if he/she has a fever over 100 degrees or is experiencing discomfort that would interfere with his/her ability to perform in school. (i.e. uncontrollable coughing, severe lack of energy). If your child experiences green nasal discharge that continues throughout the day, or a cough lasting longer than ten days, or is accompanied by fever or chills and is productive of discolored sputum, consult with your physician.  Conjunctivitis (Pink-eye): Following a diagnosis of bacterial conjunctivitis, the child may return to school after the first dose of prescribed medication. Students with viral infection may return when eyes are clear.  Diarrhea/Vomiting: A child with diarrhea and/or vomiting should stay at home and return to school only after being symptom-free for 24 hours.  Fever: A child should remain at home with a fever greater than 100 degrees. The child can return to school after he/she has been fever free for 24 hours (without fever-reducing medicine such as Tylenol or Motrin).  Impetigo: A child with impetigo may return to school 24 hours after treatment has begun. A doctor's note of proof of prescription is recommended.  Rashes: Common infectious diseases with rashes are most contagious in the early stages. A child with a suspicious rash should return to school only after a health care provider has made a diagnosis and authorized the child's return to school. Strep Throat: A child with strep throat may return to school 24 hours after antibiotic treatment has begun. A sick child cannot learn effectively and is unable to participate in classes in a meaningful way. Keeping a sick child home prevents the spread of illness in the school community and allows the child an opportunity to rest and recover.

Page 5 The Howler September 23rd, 2016 Walk to School Day!! October 5th, 2016 Meet at the Optimist Fields at 8:30 a.m. and walk together to Shadow Hills with a police escort! Parking Lot and Bus Zone Safety Please help us keep everyone safe by using sidewalks and designated crosswalks when arriving and leaving school grounds. Do not walk between buses or through the bus lane. The bus lane is for buses only. We appreciate your patience in the parking lot as students are being dropped off and picked up before and after school. We encourage you to put your children on the school bus if your students are bus eligible. If you live within walking distance, please encourage your child to walk to school. Neighborhood kids can walk together in a group! This will help parking lot congestion. Please park only in designated parking spots in the parking lot. If you pull up along the red curb (fire lane) to pick up or drop off, you may not leave your vehicle unattended. Please remind your children to walk their bikes and scooters on school property. Thanks for working with us to keep everyone safe!
