Tips to Keep Kids Healthy this School Year.
- 1. Provide healthy food. A well-balanced diet is crucial to your child’s health and wellness. Parents should encourage their kids to eat breakfast each morning and provide healthy options for meals and snacks.
- Teach proper personal hygiene. These practices will help to maintain health and prevent the spread of diseases. Personal hygiene refers to maintaining the body's cleanliness. Hygiene activities can be grouped into the following: home and everyday hygiene, personal hygiene, medical hygiene, sleep hygiene and food hygiene. Home and everyday hygiene includes hand washing, respiratory hygiene, food hygiene at home, hygiene in the kitchen, hygiene in the bathroom, laundry hygiene and medical hygiene at home.
- 4. Encourage daily exercise.
Big Smiles will be at Glenwood on Nov 1st and April 3rd. Permission slips will go home around mid-October.
Parents please take a moment to update your student’s health records in Aeries if you haven't already done so or haven't already gotten a call from me to take care of that.
If they started kindergarten this school year,
please make sure your students' shots are up to date and their physical and dental form is completed and turned in to the office.
7th grade Tdap-It’s a good idea to make a doctor’s appointment the summer your student is in 6th grade to receive their Tdap booster so that they’ll be ready for 7th grade. At that doctor’s appointment they will also administer #2 Varicella both are required from the state of California.
It is very important that you have a medication dispensed at school form completed and signed by a doctor if your students’ needs any medication to be in the office or in their backpacks.
