Buddy Day Next Week!

Our second Buddy Day of the school year is next Thursday! Buddy Day is one of our favorite events of the school year and a great way to bring our K-8 community together as our middle school classes partner with our elementary classes. Our school-wide event will be focused on community building activities that celebrate the values of kindness and friendship through the theme of school unity. As a community, all students will work together to create a school-wide paws-i-tiv-i-tree. Students will create wolf paws with positive messages on them with their buddy. Their paws will be combined and used as leaves to create a paws-i-tiv-i-tree on display in the front office. Classes will have the opportunity to see hundreds of messages of kindness coming together. We are looking forward to this meaningful event and working together to create a collective art project that highlights and supports unity at Meadow View.

Letter for parents and guardians regarding recent absences:

Bethel School District has become aware that some students are absent because of a respiratory illness. From the information we have at this point, it appears that the illness might be caused by influenza or “flu”.

What is flu? Flu is a contagious respiratory illness that is caused by a virus. It is thought to be spread by droplets made when people cough, sneeze or talk. It is also possible to transmit flu by touching a surface or object that has the flu virus on it, and then touching their own mouth, nose or eyes. The average incubation period for flu is 2 days but can range between 1-4 days. Those with flu can infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick.

Symptoms: Fever (100 ºF or higher), cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, feeling very tired, vomiting or diarrhea. Not everyone that has flu has all of these symptoms.

How serious is it? The severity of flu is unpredictable and can vary from person to person. Certain people are at a higher risk of complication from flu. These include the elderly, young children, pregnant women and people with certain health conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease). Complication of flu can include bacterial pneumonia, ear infection, dehydration, and worsening of chronic medical conditions. Immunocompromised or high-risk individuals (e.g., people with cancer, pregnant women, the elderly) should seek medical care promptly if they develop flu-like symptoms.

If you think your child has the flu, the following will help you and help prevent others from getting sick:

  • Stay at home for 24 hours until after fever has resolved without the aid of fever reducing medicines (e.g., Advil or Tylenol)
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when sick. Maintain distance from other people to prevent the spread of illness.
  • Wash hands often with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds. Alcohol- based hand sanitizers are also helpful in reducing the spread of the flu.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with tissues or by coughing into the inside of the elbow. Wash hands after blowing the nose or coughing into a tissue, and dispose
  • of tissues after use.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth to prevent the spread of germs.

The Bethel Health Center is a full service medical clinic located at 1525 Echo Hollow Rd Suite A (Cascade Middle School)

Open for medical care Mon, Tues, & Thurs during the school year.
Call for appointment 541-607-1430

If you have any questions, concerns, or need assistance, please contact Lane County Health and Human Services at 541-682-4041.

Carta para padres y tutores sobre las ausencias recientes

El Distrito Escolar Bethel se ha dado cuenta de que algunos estudiantes están ausentes debido a una enfermedad respiratoria. De la información que tenemos en este punto, parece que la enfermedad podría ser causada por la influenza o “gripe”.

¿Qué es la gripe? La gripe es una enfermedad respiratoria contagiosa que es causada por un virus. Se cree que se propaga por las gotitas provenientes cuando la gente tose, estornuda o habla. También es posible transmitir la gripe tocando una superficie u objeto que tiene el virus de la gripe en ella, y luego tocar su propia boca, nariz u ojos. El período de incubación promedio para la gripe es de 2 días, pero puede variar entre 1-4 días. Aquellos con gripe pueden infectar a otros comenzando un día antes de que los síntomas se desarrollen y de 5 a 7 días después de enfermarse.

Síntomas: Fiebre (100 ºF o superior), tos, dolor de garganta, secreción o congestión nasal, dolor de cuerpo, sensación de cansancio, vómito o diarrea. No todos los que tienen gripe tienen todos estos síntomas.

¿Qué tan grave es? La gravedad de la gripe es impredecible y puede variar de persona a persona. Ciertas personas tienen un mayor riesgo de complicaciones por la gripe. Estos incluyen los ancianos, los niños pequeños, las mujeres embarazadas y las personas con ciertas condiciones de salud (como asma, diabetes o enfermedad cardíaca). La complicación de la gripe puede incluir neumonía bacteriana, infección del oído, deshidratación y empeoramiento de condiciones médicas crónicas. Las personas inmunocomprometidas o de alto riesgo (por ejemplo, las personas con cáncer, las mujeres embarazadas, los ancianos) deben buscar atención médica con prontitud si desarrollan síntomas similares a los de la gripe.

Si cree que su hijo tiene la gripe, lo siguiente le ayudará y ayudará a prevenir que otros se enfermen:

  • Permanezca en casa durante 24 horas hasta que se haya resuelto la fiebre sin la ayuda de medicamentos para reducir la fiebre (por ejemplo, Advil o Tylenol)
  • Evitar el contacto cercano con personas que están enfermas.
  • Quédese en casa cuando esté enfermo. Mantenga la distancia de otras personas para prevenir la propagación de la enfermedad.
  • Lávese las manos a menudo con jabón y agua caliente durante al menos 20 segundos. Los desinfectantes para manos a base de alcohol también son útiles para reducir la propagación de la gripe.
  • Cubra tos y estornudos con pañuelos desechables o tosiendo en el interior del codo. Lavarse las manos después de sonarse la nariz o toser en un pañuelo desechable y desechar el pañuelo después del uso.
  • Evite tocar los ojos, la nariz y la boca para evitar la propagación de gérmenes.

El Centro de Salud Bethel es una clínica completa como la clínica de un doctor, pero con la diferencia que está en una escuela. Para más información o para hacer citas llamar al 541-607-1430.

Si tiene alguna pregunta, preocupación o necesita asistencia, comuníquese con el Departamento de Salud y Servicios Humanos del Condado de Lane al 541-682-4041

Important News to Share

Meadow View Families,

There is some important news to share. The District Attorney has released the final report of the investigation into the recent incident at Cascade, and video from the police officers’ cameras is also being released. It is important to realize that the video could be very disturbing.

We are telling you now in order for you to be able to support your children who may access the video on their own through multiple sites. It is our interest to help your children avoid any unnecessary emotional trauma that could be caused by viewing the video.
Please check with me if you believe your child needs extra counseling support at school.

Here is information you might find helpful when talking to your child.
Finally, all respect goes to the staff and students at Cascade Middle School. Their resilience has been inspiring and extraordinary.

Thanks,

Erika
