Parents, Students, and Friends –

FOOD DRIVE

Our Lobo Food Drive runs through this week! Utah Community Action Services and Food Bank barrels are in the front lobby, let’s fill them up! The food bank is in high need at this time of year. Put your donation in your backpack the night before school so you don’t forget! Clean out your pantry and bring what you can to donate to those in great need. It’s exciting to watch the donations come in!! Remember the winning grade gets 5 minutes extra lunch time! If you donate be sure to get a raffle ticket for a chance to win a candy bar. Thanks to all those who have dropped food off! Help us bring HOPE and HELP to our community. Let’s go LOBOs!

SCHOOL HEALTH  (Spanish Version Attached)

IS YOUR CHILD TOO SICK FOR SCHOOL? 

You are probably very aware of the fact that there are a lot of cold and flu germs circulating in our community at this time. This same situation can be found throughout the state and even across the country.

In order to reduce the number of students, faculty and staff being exposed to these illnesses, we are asking that you carefully review the attached list that has been provided by the Utah County Health Department. By keeping sick children at home, the chances of spreading the illness is greatly reduced. If your child shows any of these signs while they are at school, we will notify you immediately so that you can take them home until they have recovered.

We greatly appreciate all that you do to ensure that your children are in school each and every day when they are healthy. Attendance is so important for student success. When your child is ill or absent for appointments, etc., please call the school office to excuse them. We greatly appreciate your cooperation in helping us keep our school a safe and healthy place to be. 

Should They Stay or Should They Go?

  • Diarrhea-frequent, loose, watery stools

  • Runny nose (thick green/yellow discharge-non allergenic)
  • Red, inflamed or discharging eyes (non allergenic). Pink eye must be treated with antibiotic drop/ointment for at least 24 hours before returning to school

Thank You 6th Grade Buddies!

 6th-grade students had an assignment to write a story with a 2nd-grader as the main character.  They were each paired up with a 2nd-grader and came into our classrooms in November to meet and interview their buddy.  They visited us right before Christmas Break to read their imaginative stories.  They also surprised us with a candy cane and bracelet.  We were all impressed by their creativity, detailed pictures, and generosity as they gave their hard work away as a special gift.  Thank you for being great examples of SERVING and SUPPORTING 6th-graders!
