TURNING POINT PASS (POSITIVE APPROACHES TO STUDENT SUCESS)
Important Health Message from the Washoe County School District and the Washoe County Health District
November 15, 2018:
This is an important health-related message for our Turning Point and PASS families. The Glenn Hare Center has seen a higher-than-typical number of students with stomach symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea. As a precaution we have been in touch with the Washoe County Health District and we are following their recommendation for thorough cleaning of the school— with a weak bleach solution-- on a daily basis. As with all cleaning products, some individuals may be sensitive to bleach vapors. It is recommended that persons sensitive to bleach vapors take appropriate precautions.
We will continue to collaborate with the Health District until student absences return to normal numbers.
You can help us keep our students healthy by encouraging handwashing at home and by keeping your child home from school and any other social gatherings, events, or activities for at least 48 hours after symptoms of vomiting or diarrhea have ended.
If your child is experiencing fever or other symptoms of illness, please keep him or her home for 24 hours after the symptoms have ended.
If you have any further questions, please contact the school at 775-337-7560 and ask for the health office.
TURNING POINT, PASS and HOME HOSPITAL are excited to introduce Digital School Days for the 2018-19 school year!
A Digital School Day is used in place of a school day that has been cancelled due to inclement weather.
A digital school day means that students will complete learning activities and assignments provided by the teacher at home.
Teachers are currently preparing detailed plans for the implementation of Digital School Days.
These plans will include detailed strategies to deliver a viable lesson in the cases that students don't have access to technology, and will include protocol for when a teacher is not able to access technology.
There will be opportunities for student to make up any work that they had been unable to access during the snow day.
