Head Lice Update

Head Lice is tricky and recommendations to how schools handle it has changed in recent years. Currently, we are working to implement the following (as recommended by public health) while still being as proactive as possible.

"Both the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the CDC advocate for the following practices to be discontinued:

  • whole classroom screening,

  • exclusion for nits or live lice,

  • notification to others except for parents/guardians of students with head lice infestations (Devore et , 2015; CDC, 2015b, para. 3)."

After consideration, we decided to send out a mass text as soon as we were aware of more than one case in the school. To be transparent, if we have been made aware of students with lice, I have asked the parent to keep their child home and begin treatment. Thankfully, everyone I am aware of that has had lice has done so! Also, if a teacher/employee has reason to believe a child may be infected I do check for lice. This past weekend our custodians did a deep cleaning of carpets and surfaces and bagged lost and found items. We are also spreading out personal items where possible (i.e. not sharing lockers) and bagging and individualizing headphones.


Carbon County Health has provided a handout which will be in Friday Folders.

Week of October 10th, 2022

  • If your child is only getting milk at lunch, please help them remember to tell kitchen staff when they put in their number.

  • Please be sure to sign in your child if they are late to school. This ensures their tardy will be marked as an excused tardy. If you do not sign in your child their tardy will be marked as unexcused.

  • Planned Absences are defined as absences that are planned well (weeks) in advance for special occasions such as family trips that cannot be scheduled during the regular holiday times (see linear calendar at the front of this handbook). This type of absence will be considered exempt only if arrangements are made with the teacher prior to the absence. Students will be required to complete a Planned Absence form including the signatures of the parent and the student. It is at the discretion of the teacher as to whether or not the student is able to execute the “plan” and finish the work prior to the absence. Finally the form must be turned into the office prior to the absence in order to be recorded as an exempt absence. A copy will be made for the student. If a student must be gone from the classroom, we encourage them to make a plan with their teachers and parents for every anticipated absence even if he or she cannot meet the requirements for the exempt Planned Absence.

  • If you are planning to eat lunch with your child, we require notification before 9:00AM the day you are planning on coming, you can call the office or email Caitlin. Once you arrive at the school for lunch we ask that you sign in and out at the office as you go.

Conscious Discipline

Our K-8 team has appreciated, embraced, and implemented our professional development with Conscious Discipline.

A few awesome take-aways from our professional development:

  1. Relationship (connection) is the foundation to all learning.

  2. Self- Regulation comes from CO-REGULATION with adults

  3. What is assertiveness in Conscious Discipline?

The assertive voice is not rude or loud. It is the voice of knowing. The assertive voice tells children exactly what to do and paints a clear picture of what that looks like and how to be successful. Using a passive voice (e.g., “Are you ready to go to lunch?”) offers a choice when there really is none.


  • Please be sure to sign in your child if they are late to school. This ensures their tardy will be marked as an excused tardy. If you do not sign in your child their tardy will be marked as unexcused.

Parents,

Friday Homecoming Football game will look a little different than it has in the past, requiring some changes to where students/adults can watch the game from. The new track is being poured. If it is completely poured no one will be allowed on the track, requiring all spectators to be in the stands area.

With this change, students will not be able to play football at the end of the football field.

Students who come to the game and leave will only be allowed back in with an adult. This is in effort to reduce potential accidents occurring in the parking lot or in front of the high school where there will not be supervision.

Thank you! There are bound to be a few growing pains but we are very fortunate to have such an amazing facility.

CROSS-WALK AND DROP OFF-PICK UP LANE SAFETY:


Please be aware of the large number of K-8 students who are dropped off and picked up on a daily basis in front of Mountain View Elementary and Roosevelt Middle School. Unfortunately, kids don’t always look carefully and/or use cross-walks as they should. With many vehicles coming and going it is important to put caution and safety at the forefront during the morning and afternoon drop-off and pick up! Thank You!
