We've had lots of recent items to communicate to our stakeholders, so I apologize for any inconvenience multiple eBlasts may cause any of you. However, I want to be sure that you are well informed about your child's campus and opportunities available.
Below you will find some information from our THE's Clinic, Nurse Hunsicker, and from Mrs. Martinez regarding a STEM Engineering Festival for Elementary School Students.
As we move forward into the flu season, THE Clinic wishes to remind you that the flu is exceptionally bad this year and continues to infect people at a rapid rate. San Antonio came in second in the Nation for the most flu activity behind Oklahoma City. We are very concerned about the health and wellness of THE students and are asking you to inform us by email, phone call, note, or any means of communication if your child has contracted the flu, strep, mono, or any other illnesses. Tracking this information will help us note trends and will help make us all aware of the health state of Tuscany. Our desire is to keep Tuscany Heights a well and safe place for all to be.
We encourage the students to be proactive and “cover their cough or sneeze with elbow please”. Be reminded to practice this at home along with a good hand washing regimen. Please always keep your child home when they have a fever. Remember they are to stay home until fever-free for 24 hours without giving Tylenol, Motrin, or the like. This just reduces the temperature and not the infectious process.
Another reminder is not to send medicine with your child, even cough drops to school. NEISD policy indicates that students cannot carry it on themselves, in their backpack, or their lunch box at any time. This can cause an office referral with administrative consequences because it causes a student safety concern.
STEM Engineering Festival
Please join us at the STEM Engineering Festival Saturday, January 31st from 1pm – 5pm at Lee High School in the main gym. This is a free, hands-on event for elementary students to expose them to science and engineering in a fun way. ALL CHILDREN MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A PARENT/GUARDIAN. Flyer attached! Hope to see you there!
Please contact Claudia Martinez at 356-5501 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
