Welcome Back for the 2022-2023 School Year!

My name is Mariah Hinton and I am the 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 concerns about your SES student.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and gets to eat lot of yummy food!

Medication Reminder!
Just a friendly reminder, all medications being brought to school must be checked into the nurse's office.
Students should never have medications on them during school without approval from the school's health aide.

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

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.

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!

Anxiety and Stress in School-aged Children
Did you know that Anxiety disorders are among the most common mental, emotional and behavioral problems to occur during childhood and adolescence. About 13 of every 100 children and adolescents ages 9 to 17 experience some kind of anxiety disorder; girls are affected more than boys. About half of children and adolescents with anxiety disorders have a second anxiety disorder or other mental or behavioral disorder, such as depression. In addition, anxiety disorders may coexist with physical health conditions requiring treatment.

What are anxiety disorders?

Children and adolescents with anxiety disorders typically experience intense fear, worry or uneasiness that can last for long periods of time and significantly affect their lives. If not treated early, anxiety disorders can lead to:
• Repeated school absences or an inability to finish school;
• Impaired relations with peers;
• Low self-esteem;
• Alcohol or other drug use;
• Problems adjusting to work situations; and,
• Anxiety disorder in adulthood.

What are the types and signs of anxiety disorders?
Many different anxiety disorders affect children and adolescents.

-Generalized Anxiety Disorder
-Separation Anxiety Disorder
-Panic Disorder
-Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
-Post-traumatic Stress Disorder

Who is at risk?
Researchers have found that the basic temperament of young people may play a role in some childhood and adolescent anxiety disorders. For example, some children tend to be very shy and restrained in unfamiliar situations; a possible sign that they are at risk for developing an anxiety disorder. Research in this area is very complex, because children's fears often change as they age.
Researchers also suggest watching for signs of anxiety disorders when children are between the ages of 6 and 8. During this time, children generally grow less afraid of the dark and imaginary creatures and become more anxious about school performance and social relationships. An excessive amount of anxiety in children this age may be a warning sign for the development of anxiety disorders later in life.

Studies suggest that children or adolescents are more likely to have an anxiety disorder if they have a parent with anxiety disorders. However, the studies do not prove whether the disorders are caused by biology, environment or both. More data are needed to clarify whether anxiety disorders can be inherited.

If you are concerned about your child having an anxiety disorder please contact you child’s pediatrician so we can ensure your child continues having a successful educational experience.

Thanks,
Mariah Hinton
