occurs between October and May and typically peaks in January and
February. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
predicts that this will be a particularly heavy flu season. The
CDC encourages everyone, especially school personnel, to get
vaccinated because children are among the most vulnerable to the disease.
The following tips are always good to keep in mind:
hands often with soap and water or alcohol based hand sanitizer
touching eyes, nose or mouth
close contact with those who are already sick
plenty of sleep
healthy food and drink plenty of fluids
your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing with a tissue or
the crook of your arm
home if ill for at least 24 hours after fever is gone
For more information about seasonal flu, please see http://www.cdc.gov/flu/
Thank you for helping us to keep everyone at school
I often listen to
books while driving from home to school and from school to home.
January was a big month for audio books where I listened to 14 books.
That seems like a lot, but I gain a ton of insight from listening to
different types of books and considering how others view the world and
how we live in it. I am also like watching, what some would call weird
TV shows, you know, Dr. Who and Red Green etc.
As I was driving
the other day I heard a line from one of my books that got me thinking
about how Dr. Who's Tardis is bigger on the inside than on the
outside. So how can you do that, live to show that you are bigger on
the outside than the inside? The immediate answer for me is that the
inside is like our character and the outside is what
others see and expect of us. There are other ideas I am playing with
around how to live as if the inside is bigger than the outside...I
would invite you to consider and brainstorm ways how you can life as
if the inside is bigger than the outside.
February is a great
month for getting things done in schools, less testing, although we
will review expectations, students basically have them down, and we
get to focus on the start of a new semester and the courses with some
renewed energy. I hope you can tap into some energy at home as spring
is right around the corner.
