    Happy Teeth February is Dental Health Month!

     

    A few dental habits to follow for the brightest and best smile…

    • Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
    • Clean/floss between your teeth daily.
    • Eat a healthy diet that limits sugary beverages and snacks.
    • See your dentist regularly for prevention and treatment               of oral disease.

    National Children's Dental Health Month is a great time to teach and review good oral hygiene with your children. All families need a dentist for regular dental check-ups, however, access to dental health care continues be a problem for many children and families. We are fortunate in Kershaw County where local dentists and specialist of the Kershaw County Dental Society are ready and willing to serve you! A special thank you to Drs. Davant and Koutroulakis and staffs for their assistance with school dental screenings earlier this year. Families, please follow up on any urgent needs that were identified for your student. Most importantly, please contact me if I may assist you in locating a dentist for your family.

  • Attention

    Parents and Guardians,

    A child becomes a truancy risk when he/she accumulates 3 unlawful absences. At that time, a 3 day letter is sent to the parent/guardian. If the student accumulates 5 unlawful absences, a 5 day letter is sent to the parent/guardian with a scheduled date and time for a Truancy Intervention Plan (TIP) conference.   Once a total of 7 unlawful absences are accumulated, the parent/guardian will receive a 7 day truancy letter. If these unexcused absences remain unresolved, they will be forwarded to the Student Information Coordinator. A truancy petition is filed in Family Court and proceedings may occur.  

     

    If your child is absent, please return a written excuse within five (5) days.

    Winter triggers for students with ASTHMA

    Winter months can be especially hard on children with asthma. Due to cold temperature changes in the weather outside, and increases in upper respiratory infections, colds and influenza, children with asthma may have more flare-ups in the winter, making this time especially difficult for some. If your child has asthma, they are a higher risk for flu and complications of the flu, so make sure they get a flu shot!  Also, the importance of good handwashing for everyone is so important to prevent the spread of common illnesses.

    In addition, if your student has a signed doctor’s order on file and a rescue inhaler in the health room, please remind them the inhaler is available to them if needed. All teachers have been educated on signs of asthma flare-ups, have asthma action plans for these students, and know when to send a student to the health room for an evaluation of asthma symptoms by the school nurse.  By working together, we can control asthma this winter!

    Please contact me with any student health concerns. Be well! Annah J. Deal, BSN, RN, LES School Nurse

    Great resources for parents of students with asthma:

    American Lung Association www.lungusa.org

    Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America www.aafa.org

    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention www.cdc.gov/HealthyYouth/asthma

    National Association of School Nurses www.nasn.org

     

     

    Let’s talk about FEVER and INFLUENZA… It’s coming!!

    Typically, we see an uptick in Jan./Feb. of flu. Parents, we ask that you keep your child at home when they are sick to prevent the spread of illnesses at school. All Kershaw County schools follow the DHEC exclusion and return to school guidelines as follows:

    • FEVER ONLY- Keep your child home for a fever of 101 degrees or higher. Your child may return to school with a parent note when the fever is gone.

     

    • Flu, Influenza, or influenza-like illness (ILI) is defined as an oral temperature of greater than 100 degrees, with a cough and/or sore throat for which there is no other known cause.

     

    • A child will be excluded for a fever of 100 degrees with a cough and/or sore throat.

     

    • Your child can return to school with a parent note when the fever is gone for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications.

     

    If you have any questions regarding DHEC guidelines for school, please don’t hesitate to call me. As always, frequent hand washing and cough etiquette will help control the spread of infection. Annual influenza vaccination is the best prevention for flu.
