FLOYD: Health office makes request of parents
Parents, please do yourself and your student a favor, if your student has had a fever please keep them home until they have not had a fever for 24 hours without giving them medication.
Any student that comes to the health office with a fever of 100 or higher will be sent home.
Also, all parents will receive a copy of the school’s “Bobcat Tracks” newsletter each Monday.
If there is not school on Monday, then you will receive it on Tuesday. “Bobcat Tracks” is also translated into Spanish.
If you would like your copy in Spanish, please have your child let his or her teacher know.
Both versions are on the school’s website.
There is a great deal of very important information in each newsletter.
RCMS: Social media and bullying
Cyber-bullying is a continuous concern and a growing issue among young people today.
Part of the concern may be that young people are not quite aware of what cyber-bullying actually is.
So let’s define it: Cyber-bullying is the use of modern communication technologies to embarrass, humiliate, threaten, or intimidate an individual.
Instant messaging, picture phones, text messaging, and social networking sites such as Facebook are some of the many methods through which cyber-bullying is occurring.
Smart phones provide easy, on the spot internet access, and let’s face it parents, do our kids go anywhere without their cell phones?
One way to help address this huge concern of cyber-bullying is to educate our youth of the dangers and potential harm that this type of behavior can cause.
Kids need to realize that bullying is a root cause for young people to become seriously depressed and/or commit dangerous acts like suicide or murder.
Cyber-bullying is not only against school rules, but it is also against the law.
Parents can also help to prevent cyber-bullying by frequently monitoring their children’s phone usage, text messages, emails, and Facebook accounts.
Teach socially appropriate and acceptable “netiquette” while using the Internet. Communicate with your children, and be aware of who they are hanging out with.
PVHS: Student Council is looking for great ideas from students
The student council suggestion box is the perfect solution.
Stop by locker 2571 and drop off your suggestions.
The council wants to make the school the best place possible and students can help. But first they would like to receive some suggestions.
Submit your ideas for homecoming themes, spirit days, school activities and more.
If pencil and paper are too old school, the student council also has an internet survey at http://bit.ly/StuCoSurvey.
