Important Medical Information

We have had a few reported cases of hand, foot and mouth disease at Saint John.  These occurrences are in lower grade areas.  Hand, foot and mouth disease is a  mild viral illness, occurring most often in children under age 10, but can occur in older children and adults.  A lower grade fever which can last from 1 to 3 days may accompany this disease.  Vesicles form on the inside of the mouth usually on the cheek, gums and on the side of the tongue.  Vesicles later appear on the feet and the hands and occasionally on the buttocks, and may persist from 7 to 10 days.  Symptoms occur 3-5 days after exposure.  If your son/daughter is experiencing symptoms, you are urged to see your family physician.

 

According to the information received from the Department of Public Health, particular attention should be given to thorough hand washing and no sharing of eating or drinking utensils.  Thorough handwashing is practiced at school.  Eating and drinking utensils are not shared.

 

For additional information, please see the attachments.

School Closing due to Inclement Weather

SJL follows the school closing of the Plymouth School District.  When Plymouth Schools are closed, SJL is closed as well.  We are not listed separately.
Why close school?  Safety is the primary concern. If schools are open, our students are traveling to and from school; if schools close, several hundred children from ages 6 to 12 are home unsupervised.
What influences the decision?

Visibility: Blowing snow is the most critical factor in safe transportation; this includes concern with fog.
Snowfall: Snow amounts and slippery conditions reported by people who are actually driving the roads.
Cold: Actual sustained temperature below -15 F or wind chills below -30 F.

Who makes the decision?  Several people have input, but the final decision lies with the superintendent, who consults with:

  • The manager and the staff at Johnson Bus, for important information about road and driving conditions.
  • Other superintendents in the region.
  • Local and national weather data.
  • Up-to-date state and local radar.
  • School maintenance people, to be sure that we can offer clear sidewalks and driveways.
  • Road crews and the police.

While the decision to close school lies with the superintendent, parents have the ultimate responsibility for keeping their children safe. If a child is kept home during inclement weather, it will be counted as an excused absence. Parents also should consider whether an inexperienced driver should drive or ride the bus instead.
How do we let people know?
Once a decision is made regarding school closings or delays, the announcement is posted on Sycamore and the general website. In addition, the radio and television stations listed below are contacted.
When weather conditions are such that you question if school will be closed, please be sure to check these sources. We know that some of you are in positions where you are not able to see or hear announcements during the day. In this case we urge that you make arrangements with friends and relatives to listen for you in case school is dismissed early in bad weather.
