Welcome Back for the 2021-2022 School Year!

My name is Mariah Hinton and I am the new health aide for Solomon Elementary School. I attended Solomon Elementary School as a kid and I am excited to be back to help care for the health and safety of the current SES students. Feel free to give me a call at the school's nurse's office if you have any health safety concerns about your SES student.

THANKSGIVING BREAK
I want to wish everyone a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I hope you all enjoy your weekend and stay safe and eat lots of yummy food! I can't wait to hear all about your holiday!

Looking forward to seeing you all back at school on Monday Nov 29th!


Eat Your Breakfast!
Many students have visited the health office lately with stomach pains and headaches that have been results of them not eating breakfast, so please make sure your child is eating breakfast each day. Solomon School is currently providing free breakfast and lunch for all of the students.

Also, Several studies suggest that eating breakfast may help children do better in school by improving memory, alertness, concentration, problem-solving ability, test scores, school attendance, and mood.

I have attached an article from EatRight.org with some information for parents/guardians to check out!

Thank You!

BRRRRR...IT'S COLD OUTSIDE!
Dear Parents and/or Guardians,

The cold weather is setting in fast. This is just a friendly reminder that students should dress appropriately for the colder days. We are seeing a number of students without jackets or proper cold weather apparel. The students spend their recess time outside in the brisk weather and in order to prevent a child getting cold, and potentially sick, we ask that you ensure your child has a jacket, sweater, winter hat, and/or gloves or mittens if needed.

Be sure to label the items in the event that something goes missing. With the items being labeled, we can ensure it is returned to its owner.

There are also many jackets being left on the playground and no one claims. If your child comes home missing their jacket have them come by my office as soon as possible and I will help them find the jacket!

I do carry a few extra jackets if you child forgets as well and will gladly take donations of jackets to give out to other students.

KEEP WARM!

Thank you,
Mariah Hinton
Health Aide

DO THE DAB COUGH
Teach kids to cough into elbow,not hands-where they're more likely to spread germs through touch.You are less likely to touch things with your elbow or shoulder,the germ won't spread.
When is sick too sick for School?
SOLOMON ELEMENTRARY SCHOOL
When is Sick too Sick for School?

“Mom told me to come to school and if I am sick you can send me home.” “I threw up last night and this morning but mom said to come to school.” “I had a fever last night but I can’t be absent anymore.”
The school nurses at Solomon hear these stories and more every day, in fact usually by 8 AM. We then need to assess the students for measurable signs and symptoms of illness. No, we do not just take a temperature, we look in throats, ears and ask questions like, when did this start, how many times did you vomit, what did you take for your pain, did you see the doctor, why are you here in school?

Then we make decisions based on what we see, hear, sometimes smell and measure. Students are sent back to class unless we determine that they are too sick to stay in school or are contagious. We often tell parents to please keep their sick student home. Parents ask for guidelines as to what constitutes too sick for school. Sometimes they say ”I sent him to avoid an absence.” We cannot allow the office to be used to avoid an absence. If you student is ill please keep them home.
So what is too sick?

• A fever of 100 or more
• A cough that kept your student up during the night
• Vomiting or diarrhea
• A red draining eye
• Severe pain in the ear, stomach or any other pain that stops your student from doing
activities of daily living

A cold is not a good reason to miss class. You as the parent need to decide how bad the cold is, however if you chose to send you student with a cold we will support that decision and keep the student in school. This means we will assess the student and send them back to class. If we determine the cold warrants missing school we will call you.
If you student has a chronic health problem please share that information with us. For example if your student has asthma a cold may quickly become more severe and require a visit to your asthma doctor.

There are some things we do not send students home for. The first is menstrual cramps. Young ladies with cramps may take medication if the standing order form has been returned to the school nurse’s office. These forms are mailed home every year. The form must be updated yearly and on file in the nurse’s office. If your daughter has cramps so severe that she cannot attend school you should have her seen by your health care provider and provide instructions from that provider to the school nurse.
“I am tired” is not a reason to go home unless there are measurable signs of illness. Students often stay up late for various reasons and then want to go home or nap.

I hope this information helps you understand how school health services work, if you have any questions please call the office,
or school nurse Thank you
