Mrs. Mamie Crawford was welcomed out of retirement from HMS as she sat in for her first Board Meeting. Also, congratulations to Mrs. Crawford, Mr. Bobby Craven, and Mr. Millard Daniel on their elections (or re-elections) to the 2015 Board!

 


Parent Survey 

Georgia Parent Survey

The Georgia Parent Survey is also modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions.  A Spanish version of the parent survey will be available soon.  Parents will be able to complete the survey using their personal computers, smartphones or iPads.  For parents that do not have access to the Internet, school administrators might consider scheduling dates and times to allow parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school.  All parents should be encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating .  However, there is no mandatory participation rate for parents.  Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.  The URL address for the Georgia Parent Survey is posted below.

This is turning out to be a very active flu season. The CDC recommends a three step approach to fighting influenza (flu).  The first step is to get the flu vaccination each year.  Secondly, if you do get the flu, then there are prescription antiviral drugs that can treat your illness. See your doctor when symptoms arise in you or your child.  Early treatment is especially warranted for the very young, people with chronic health conditions, and the elderly.  Finally, please make sure that you take everyday precautions for prevention.  

 To learn more about this years flu outbreak, click here.
Everyday precautions include:

If you or your child gets sick with flu-like symptoms, then the CDC recommends that the sick person should stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone except to get medical care.  The fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine such as Tylenol or Advil. 

While sick, limit contact with others as soon as possible to keep from infecting them.

Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.  Use the "vampire sneeze" of using your elbow instead of your hands when possible to limit the spreading of the virus or germs.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.  Germs spread this way.

Eat with utensils.  Avoid using your hands to eat food if possible.

Wash your hands often with soap and water.  Sing the "Happy Birthday" song as you wash so that you make sure that the hands are clean as you lather and scrub both sides of your hands.  If soap and water are not available, then use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with flu virus or other germs.

Routinely clean frequently touched objects and surfaces including door knobs, car door handles, keyboards, phones, and tables.

Practice good health habits. Get plenty of sleep and exercise, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat healthy food.
