January PTO Meeting, Go EAGLES!

Hello Prairie Mountain Students and Families,

Happy New Year!  Thank you to everyone who attended our PTO meeting this week.  It was a great meeting filled with lots of fundraising information, including share-outs from Project-Leaders, moneys raised, and upcoming projects on the Mountain.  I was able to share our student behavioral data for the month of December, information about our upcoming On the Path to Graduation evening for 7th and 8th grade students and families, the recent installation of Feminine Hygiene Dispensers, interest in planning/organizing a Science Fair, and recent conversations as a staff around the implementation of Calm Corners in our classrooms.  It was a great night!  I would encourage you all to come on out to our PTO meetings to learn more about our amazing school and upcoming events.  

Thanks again and Go Eagles!

Cold and Flu Season Has Arrived

We are experiencing a high number of absences due to students being ill.

If your child is sick, 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.
  • Get the flu vaccine! The flu vaccine is the best way to prevent seasonal flu.

The Bethel Health Center is a full service medical clinic located at 1525 Echo Hollow Rd Suite A (Cascade Middle School) Open Mon-Thurs during the school year.
Call for appointment 541-607-1430.
