Survey for Elementary Parents by Ms. Whitaker

November 16, 2016

Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease

November 16, 2016

Dear Parent or Guardian:

Doctors and pediatricians in our area are seeing cases of Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease.

Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease is caused by a virus and is usually seen in children under age 5 and infants. It can be seen in older children and adults. Pregnant women should consult with their doctor or obstetrician if they have been exposed or think they have been exposed to an infected individual.

The symptoms include: fever, decreased appetite, ulcers in mouth, rash primarily on the hands and soles of the feet, and in some cases blisters.

It is not usually serious and individuals with Hand, Foot, and mouth recover in 7-10 days without treatment.

It is spread by close contact such as coughing, sneezing, kissing, hugging, and sharing cups and utensils with infected individuals. Individuals infected with Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease are contagious before symptoms appear.

The best way to prevent it from spreading is practicing good hygiene: washing hands; sneezing and coughing into tissues and disposing of them immediately; and cleaning surfaces that could be touched by unwashed hands.

Good hygiene at all times is the most effective method of preventing the spread of the disease.

Opioid Letter to Parents

September, 28 2016

Dear Parents,

Any information contained in this letter is not intended as medical advice, but simply to alert families to the existence of alternatives to opioids and that any such choices should be discussed with their physicians.

In 2014 nearly 2500 Pennsylvanians died from drug overdoses, many from opiate-based drugs. I am sure many of you know of people that have died in your area due to an overdose. Unfortunately, many have kept silent due to the social stigma, but that has only fueled an increase in deaths. Heroin does not discriminate among race, ethnicity, gender, nor socio-economic status. If you have chance, please watch this episode from CBS’s 60 Minutes, which originally aired in October, 2015. http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/heroin-in-the-heartland-2/

An increasing number of heroin overdoses are being experienced by young adults that have become addicted to opiate-based pharmaceuticals prescribed to them due to school sports injuries or common accidents. Oxycotin, Demerol, and Percoset, and many other opiate-based pain killers, can become highly addictive after an extended period of use. A person that is addicted could purchase Oxycotin on the black market for $80 a pill. Due to that expense, many switch to heroin, which is now only $5 per small bag. However, heroin transforms the brain to want this stimulus in ever increasing quantities. No one can just experiment with heroin, once you use it you are hooked, and in most cases, heroin will lead to death from overdose. 

While we can not totally eradicate the drug problem, we can diminish its effects on society through education. That is the point of this letter. When your child is injured, you do not have to simply accept what the doctor is prescribing for pain. Below is a list of opiate-based drugs, and alternative non-addictive pain killers that can be prescribed instead. Please be aware of your options and ask your doctor or pharmacist these critical questions to save your child from the potential for addiction. Heroin overdoses have increased by over 400% in the last few years. By following this advice, we may finally start witnessing a decrease in opiate addiction, along with overdoses caused by addicts switching to the cheaper fix of heroin. Thank you for your consideration.

Pool Party Request Information

February 17, 2016

From HS Activity Director - Jennifer Cory:

One of the very first things that must be done when you contact me requesting to rent out the Natatorium is to fill out the building usage request form. This building request form should be completed about a month and a half/two months before the party because it would need to get approved by the school board at their monthly school board meeting. This completed form, along with my signature, will ensure that there are no other events going on that day which would conflict with their request. Along with this form, a certificate of the party’s homeowner’s insurance must be handed in as well.

Within about two weeks of handing in the building usage request form, another form must be handed in as well as a deposit to rent the pool. This form is called the Swimming Pool Contract form and this form illustrates the required documents that must be turned in before the pool party.

Then, in regards to the specific details, I have a rules and rate schedule form that must be looked over in advance because this represents what is allowed and what is NOT allowed at NS pool parties while explaining the rate schedule. Normally pool parties are scheduled to last for two hours. And, we have a rate schedule where they pay per hour. We have rates for families that are in the district and we also have rates for out of district families. These rates also increase as the amount of swimmers go up.

If anyone would like to contact me in regards to having a pool party, my email is jcory@northschuylkill.net (my contact info is also on the forms as well). You can do so that way - and then I will provide all the information they would need to know in order to have a pool party at NS.
