Early Learning

Toddler with cap and bookDid you know a baby’s brain develops at a faster rate during infant and toddler stages than it does during any other time in a child’s life? All of those “cute” things babies do that we “ooh and aah” over are really a baby’s way of demonstrating their learning.

Norovirus Prevention

Dear Parents/Guardians:

It has come to my attention that there have been a lot of students home sick in the past few weeks. Due to the reported symptoms of some students, there is a possibility that it is the Norovirus that is spreading throughout the school. Although this has not been confirmed, as the Wellness Hub Nurse in your school, I want to take every precautionary step to prevent any further spreading. Please see the attached flyer (PDF) that gives information on how to clean and prevent spreading of the Norovirus. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at 541-969-8922, the local Health Department at 541-278-5432 or call your Primary Care Physician.

Homeless Student Count Reaches All-Time High

(Salem, Ore.) – The number of students meeting the federal definition of homeless is up for the fourth year in a row, reaching a new record for both the number and percentage of homeless enrolled students. For the 2016-17 school year, 22,541 students “lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence” which the federal government classifies as homeless. That represents 3.9 percent of the entire public K-12 student population.
