Information Regarding Seasonal Influenza
It seems as if the flu season is upon us. The Ball-Chatham School District would like to offer the following methods, recommended by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and those used by the district, to help reduce the spread:
- Students who are showing signs of influenza (cough, fever, chills, fatigue) should remain home and away from other students. They should stay home except if needed to go to the physician office. They should also remain away from family members who are very young (younger than 6 months), very old, or have other diseases such as asthma or lung disease that may make the symptoms of influenza worse. More information from the CDC...
The Ball-Chatham School District, through its many volunteers, is working with area businesses to bring PBIS into the community. PBIS, (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) is a school-wide system that strives to improve consistency in expected behaviors, resulting in students being ready and prepared to learn. All of our district schools, kindergarten through high school, have adopted three core behavior expectations; BE RESPECTFUL, BE RESPONSIBLE, AND BE SAFE. By teaching these expectations, students of the Ball-Chatham School District will have the knowledge and skills necessary to become respectful, responsible and safe community members. Our goal is to have community-wide support of our behavior expectations: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe.
