Reminder about the flu

School District 622 is beginning to see an increase in the number of students with influenza. Flu seasons are unpredictable when it comes to determining when the season will start, the severity, and the actual type of influenza virus. The following is a guide for families based on information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Minnesota Department of Health.

4 main ways you and your family may keep from getting sick with the flu at school and at home:

• Practice good hand hygiene by washing your hands often with soap and water, especially after coughing or sneezing.

• Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow; not into your hands.

• Stay home if you or your child is sick for at least 24 hours after there is no longer a fever or signs of a fever (without the use of fever-reducing medicine).

• Get your family vaccinated for influenza. Flu shots are still available.

What are the symptoms of the flu?

Symptoms of flu may include: fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills, fatigue and sometimes vomiting and diarrhea. Some people with the flu will not have a fever. People with the flu may infect others from 1 day before getting sick to 5-7 days or while they still have symptoms.

What should you do if your child gets sick with flu-like symptoms?

• Let your child’s school know if he/she is home sick due to flu-like symptoms.

• Students with flu-like symptoms should stay home for at least 24 hours after there are no longer a fever or signs of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicine. Children may continue to be sick for 5 or more days.

• Monitor the health of other school-aged children for fever and other symptoms of the flu.

• Consult your healthcare provider if you have additional questions or concerns. Antiviral medications can treat flu illness. These medications are prescribed by a doctor and work best when started during the first 2 days of illness.

• If your child seems very sick call your healthcare provider right away. Warning or emergency signs include: fast breathing or trouble breathing, bluish or gray skin color, not drinking enough fluids, severe or persistent vomiting, not waking up or not interacting, being so irritable that the child does not want to be held, flu-like symptoms improve but then return with a fever and/or cough, has other health conditions (like heart or lung disease, diabetes, or asthma).

Welcome

Welcome to Maplewood Middle School!

 
We are proud to tell you that everything we do is based on what is best for each one of our kids.  Maplewood is a place where all staff work together to prepare our students for high school and beyond.  I am truly honored to be your principal and am excited about what the 2014-2015 school year will bring for your child!

 

Our incredibly talented and committed staff shares the collective vision to be the school that is recommended by every parent and student who is a part of our community.  Our staff believes in the motto “Are We Getting By or Getting Better?” as they are committed to improving their practice as a means of serving every kid as if he or she is their own.   We believe that all students can learn at a high level and should be active participants in their education.  Maplewood students are held to the highest of standards, as we work to develop learners who are accountable for their actions and achieve excellence in both their academics and in their character.

 

Communication and collaboration with our families is fundamental to the learning process.  You can expect to receive weekly information about learning objectives, homework assignments, as well as communication about behavior expectations. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher if you have a question or concern as we know the team approach is the best approach.

 

Thank you for entrusting us with your children and partnering with us so that we can provide a middle school experience that is meaningful, engaging, and meets the specific needs of every single student.

Maplewood Middle School Principal
