Field Day Sign Up...
The annual WES Field Day will be held on Monday, June 17, and we need your help to make it happen! The whole school will enjoy field day(along with Walk for WES) rain or shine. Get ready for fun and games, including a bounce house, scooter soccer, home run derby, tennis rally ball, bead crafts, hocker and so much more! Parent volunteers are needed to keep the fun rolling. If you can help, please sign up here. We appreciate your help!
Now that we finally beginning to have some warm weather, students can really enjoy the outdoors. However, we already are seeing tick activity, so some extra care needs to be taken. If your child is going to be spending time in the woods or anywhere with tall grass or brush, consider having your child wear light-colored pants tucked into light colored socks. Also, the American Academy of Pediatrics has stated that children can use insect repellent containing DEET (NN-diethyl-m-toluamide) if they are over 2 months of age. Repellent can be sprayed on clothing or skin, but avoid using near the face or on the hands of young children who might put fingers in their mouth or rub their eyes, causing irritation. Repellant should not be used more than one day in a row. After some fun in the woods or fields, remember to do a head-to-toe tick check. Ticks are very small, some the size of a lowercase "o" in the newspaper, some even smaller. Ticks have some favorite places to hide - check extra carefully along hairline, in hair, behind ears, and in armpits and belly buttons. Our area is endemic for Lyme disease, but there are other tick borne illnesses as well, so don't forget to do your tick checks! If you do find a tick on your child, remove it if you can, as soon as possible. If it seems difficult, call your provider for help. Let your provider know about the tick regardless, as they may prescribe an antibiotic depending on how long it was on. Make a note on your calendar when you found the tick and watch for any flu symptoms for 30 days - this can indicate Lyme disease and should be treated. Please watch where the insect bite was to make sure there is no redness or infection. These simple measures can keep us enjoying being outside the way we should! Be Well, Nurse Carol
