Did you forget to purchase an ISLA DDLMt-shirt last year? We are offering ISLA DDLM t-shirts at a reduced price of $8per shirt. All proceeds will go to ISLA. There will not be any t-shirts for sale at this year’s DDLM, now’s your chance to grab one before they’re gone! We won’t be able to order more sizes once they’re gone. The sizes we have left are listed below:
Adult XL- 3
Adult L- 6
If interested, please email Betsey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: these shirts are not uniform approved but are great for events.
Also, we encourage anyone who owns a shirt to wear theirs to this year’s DDLM. Thanks for showing your support of ISLA!
It's that time of year when it seems germs are more prevalent, and "stuff" is getting passed between students in school. To help kids remember to wash their hands, cover their cough, & how to prevent the spread of germs; we have reviewed Hand-washing and disease prevention practices with each classroom. Parents can reinforce these practices at home in the effort to keep everyone healthy this school year. Good hand-washing practices are so important; hand-washing is the single, most-effective way to keep ourselves healthy and prevent the spread of disease to others.
To assist the school staff in preventing disease outbreaks, please be specific when reporting a child's absence. When calling in, please include a description of the symptoms (fever, vomiting, diarrhea, rash, eye drainage, etc.). If your child has been diagnosed by a health care provider with an illness, please indicate that also (pink eye, strep throat, ringworm, head lice, influenza,etc.). Our office needs to track communicable diseases to observe trends and to hopefully prevent any outbreaks. We also need to alert other families with children in the same classroom if any child is diagnosed with a communicable disease.
With all the stomach aches and sniffles that come along with childhood, it can be hard to determine when to keep your child home from school. Here are some guidelines to help you make that call:
Remember to call the school office with any of the above conditions/diagnoses ASAP!
Thanks to all those who came out for dinner at Chipotle on Tuesday night! Your support is greatly appreciated!!!
Thank you ISLA families for collecting and submitting Box Tops for Education. In the past years, ISLA has purchased balls and jump ropes for outdoor recess. This year we have purchased two really nice soccer goals and we are also looking to purchase new basketball hoops. All of the money collected will help fund these improvements!
Thank you ISLA Community!
