Sick Child
Grandma's Healing Touch

My Child is Sick. Should they stay home?

When your child returns to school after an absence,  please send a note to school to explain your child’s absence.  A doctor’s note is required for each absence when students have accumulated 10 or more absences. Please use these attachments to print an excuse note that you can fill out to return to school with your child.

The following information, provided by our RCS School Nurses, may be useful to help you decide if your child should stay home from school due to illness.

 

WHEN SHOULD MY CHILD STAY HOME FROM SCHOOL?

Bringing your child to school with the symptoms listed below puts other children and school

staff at risk of becoming ill. This information is offered so that you will have information tohelp you make a decision about your child attending school.

 

Here are some guidelines from your school nurse to help you decide:

 

Appearance, Behavior: If your child is unusually tired, pale or doesn’t want

to eat it may indicate an illness is beginning.

 

Fever: If your child has had a fever, do not send him/her back to school until their temperature is normal (less than 100° F) for 24 hours without taking medication. 

 

Eyes: If your child has mucus or pus coming from the eyes – this may be an eye infection that needs treatment. Keep your child at home and take him to your healthcare provider.

 

Nasal Drainage and/or Constant Cough:

If your child has drainage that is not clear, but yellow or green accompanied by a fever he/she should see a healthcare provider. A cough that is constant is very distracting in aclassroom. The teacher will be calling you to pick up your child if the cough is loud and constant.

 

Sore Throat: If your child has a sore throat with fever and/or swollen glands, he/she should stay home and see a healthcare provider. The flu can be treated if anti-viral medication is started early.

 

Diarrhea: If your child has 2 or more watery BMs in a 24 – hour period, they should stay home, especially if they also have nausea and look pale. If there is an accompanying

fever, see a healthcare provider.

 

Vomiting: If your child has vomited 2 or more times in the past 24 hours, please keep them at home. If there is an accompanying fever, see a healthcare provider.

 

Rash: If your child exhibits a body rash, especially with fever or itching, he/she should remain at home and be assessed by your healthcare provider. A heat

rash is not contagious and if there is no itching, your child may attend school.

 

Ear Infections without fever: Unless your child has ear pain, they can come to school but should see a healthcare provider.

 

Lice/Scabies: 

Lice- If you are aware that your child is infected, please have them treated before bringing him/her back to school. Someone at school will check your child for live lice when they arrive and progress on the removal of all nits will be monitored.

 

Scabies – Children with scabies may be re-admitted to school after treatment. Documentation of diagnosis and treatment is important.

 

Fever: If your child has had a fever, do not send him/her back to school until their temperature is normal (less than 100° F) for 24 hours without taking medication.

RCS Discipline Guide

Huntsville Elementary has been recognized for Exemplar status for school years 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18, and  2018-2019.  We were recognized for Model status in 2019-2020.

   

PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention and Support and our school is currently utilizes all three PBIS modules.  PBIS uses a combination of published expectations and inventions to direct and correct student behavior without many of the negative/punitive measures inclusive of traditional behavior management models.

 

What all this means:

  1. Student behavior expectations are consistently monitored based on a matrix that the PBIS committee developed in the summer of 2010.  From that matrix, the students learn our school's PBIS motto: BARK (Be Safe, Act Responsibly, Respect Yourself and Others, Kindness is the Key).  The matrix and the motto are prominently displayed throughout the school building to serve as ever-present reminders.

  2. Throughout the 2010-2011 school year, the PBIS Committee collected data based on a list of expected behaviors for five of the common areas of our school (Hallways, Cafeteria, Car/Bus Traffic, Restrooms, and Playground) and has provided students with an acceptable voice level scheme: Level 0= no talking, Level 1= whisper, Level 2= normal, used for talking to the person next to you, Level 3= presenter, used when make a presentation to the class, Level 4= outside voice. Our efforts toward communicating and monitoring our students successful adherence to universal behavior expectations led to our school being recognized as a PBIS Green Ribbon School.

  3. Students are provided with specific, targeted instruction (video, lesson plans, publication of common area policy, and practice) prior to expectations being enforced in the common area that is our focus for a particular time period/month, so that students will know exactly how they are expected to behave in all the common areas of our school.

 

PAWS tickets are part of the incentives that have been developed to go along with our school's implementation of PBIS.  Students who are modeling extraordinary BARK (Be Safe, Act Responsibly, Respect self and others,Kindness is the Key) characteristics are rewarded with a PAWs ticket when any staff member stops them, points out what they are doing sowell, and presents them with a PAWS ticket.  PAWS are collected and entered into weekly and six-week drawings for prizes and rewards, so the more PAWS a student earns, the better his or her chances are for having one of his or her tickets pulled during the drawings.

 

Examples:  

If your child goes out of his or her way to help another student who may have dropped his or her books, lunch tray, etc., then a staff member who sees this may reward your child with a PAWS ticket. (Goes with Kindness is the Key part of BARK)

 

If your child chooses to stand quietly in line while the rest of the class is restless and wiggly,then a staff member who sees this may reward your child with a PAWS ticket. (Goes with Act Responsibly part of BARK)

 

Make sense? Ask your child if he or she has received any PAWS.  If so, please consider telling them and showing them how proud you are of them.

 

During the 2011-2012 school year our school participated in Module 2 and began to make targeted interventions to reinforce expected behaviors with our students who were still not successfully meeting our universal behavior expectations.  Our school was also recognized as a PBIS Model School.

 

During the 2012-2013 school year our school will be participating in Module 3 and will begin even more personalized, targeted interventions that may include our school's services as well as those services throughout our school community and county at large.

 

2013-2014:  Huntsville Elementary has been recognized as a PBIS Exemplar School!!! During this school year, we will continue to utilize Modules 1, 2, and 3 and are hopeful that we will see an even greater reduction in instructional time lost as a result of office discipline referrals (ODRs). We are excited about the prospects of utilizing community volunteers from Rockingham West Missional Network to more adequately support and nurture our students.

 

2014-current:  During these school years, we will continue to utilize Modules 1, 2, and 3 and plan to focus efforts on reducing number of office discipline referrals from the bus and/or related to bus behavior. Huntsville Elementary has been recognized for Exemplar status for school years 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18, and 2018-19..

 

Videos used to teach the expected behaviors for each of our common areas willbe linked below after they have been used by the classroom teacher to help students learn what is expected. Unlinked content indicates that the video is being revised and is not ready for public viewing.

We are excited for the first day of school and can’t wait to see our scholars tomorrow!

Our school doors will open at 7:20 for student drop-off.  Our instructional day starts at 7:45, which means any students arriving at school at 7:45 or after would be counted tardy and a parent/guardian would need to come inside and sign them in.  Parents/guardians must have a state issued ID or driver’s license to sign their student in/out using the Ident-A-Kid system.

On Monday, August 28th, we will allow parents to walk students to their class, however we recommend you begin dropping them off in the drop off lane to start setting this routine into practice.  If you plan to walk your student in, you must park in the parking lot, receive a visitor sticker from the office, and go only to your student’s class.  We ask that you drop your student off promptly, as this is not a time to meet with the teacher.  Beginning Tuesday, August 29th, only parents/guardians of Kindergarten students can walk their student in.  All other students must be dropped off in the drop off lane.  Thank you for helping build this routine from the start of school.  

Bus riders will be dismissed beginning at 2:35 and escorted to the bus by a teacher.  Parents/guardians who are picking up their students should create a double line system, traveling around the upper lot before entering the drop off line.  Staff will be assigned to help with traffic control.  Car riders will be escorted to the cafeteria at 2:45 where they will wait until their name is called.  Once their name is called, students will go to their number cone and wait for their ride to pull up to and stop at the designated cone.  Please be patient with the car rider process the first few weeks of school.  

We do not allow student check outs from 2:15-2:45.  If you must check your student out late in the day, it must be done before 2:15.  

As a reminder, breakfast and lunch is free for all students this year!  Students are not allowed to have outside food in a container that advertises the restaurant.  

If your student is a bus rider, please be patient with the bus for the first few days.  If you signed up for the parent portal bus app, please be aware that the app is only as good as the information supplied to it.  As we make changes to buses in the first few days, the app should update as well.  

This is a very important message for parents/guardians of our kindergartners.  NC legislation requires all newly enrolled kindergarten students to have a health assessment(physical) and their completed immunization record on file at school by the 30th day after enrollment.  The deadline for this information is 9/26/23.  The blank health assessment form was supplied within the kindergarten enrollment packet and must be completed by a licensed health care provider. A wellness visit within the past 12 months of the first day of school can be accepted and documented on the provided blue form. If your child has not already received these health requirements, please schedule an appointment now by contacting your child’s health care provider or the Rockingham County Health Department.  For questions or more information, please contact our school nurse Sharon Ellis at 336-427-3266.   

 

This concludes our weekly announcement.

 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Huntsville Elementary School at 336-427-3266.

 

Thank you for all you do to support Huntsville Elementary School.

 

Have a great evening.
