News from Secretary Duncan and the U.S. Dept. of Education

As you are likely aware, the United States has been experiencing a nationwide outbreak of enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) associated with severe respiratory illness that has been especially harmful to children.  At the same time, you and your communities may also have questions about the Ebola virus.  To address both public health concerns, the U.S. Department of Education and our federal health partners have a number of informational resources to share with you. 

Almost all of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-confirmed cases this year of EV-D68 infection have been among children.  Many of the children had asthma or a history of wheezing.  Many parents continue to be worried about the outbreak and want information about what they can do to prevent illness and protect themselves and their families.  The CDC has developed information and resources for parents about EV-D68.  

Below are CDC resources about EV-D68 developed for parents:


Parent Letter Regarding Hand, Foot, Mouth Disease (HFMD)
For Immediate Release, Friday, September 5, 2014

We have at least one confirmed case of Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease (HFMD) at the Junior-Senior High and one at the elementary. HFMD is a viral illness that usually affects infants and children younger than 10 years old. However, it can sometimes occur in adults. 

Symptoms- HFMD usually starts with a fever, poor appetite, a feeling of being unwell and sore throat. One or two days after the fever starts, painful sores may develop in the mouth. A skin rash can develop in 1-2 days. The rash has flat or raised red spots, sometimes with blisters. The rash is usually on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet; it may also appear on the knees, elbows, buttocks or genital area. Persons infected with the virus may not get all the symptoms of the disease. They may only get the mouth sore or skin rash. The infection usually goes away without any serious complications within 7 to 10 days. In very rare occasions, complications of viral meningitis or encephalitis may occur.

Transmission- This virus is spread from person to person by direct contact. The virus is found in the nose, throat, fluid in blisters, and stool of the infected person. The virus is spread when the infected person touches an object and surfaces that are then touched by others. Infected persons are MOST contagious during the first week of the illness. 
 

Prevention- There is no vaccine to protect against the virus. You can lower the risk of being infected by:

  • Washing hands often with soap and water.
  • Disinfecting dirty surfaces and soiled items including toys.
  • Avoid close contact such as kissing, hugging or sharing eating utensils or cups.

Treatment- There is no specific treatment; however, some things can be done to relieve symptoms:

  • Taking over-the-counter medications to relieve pain and fever (Caution: Aspirin should not be given to children.)
  • Using mouthwashes or sprays to numb the mouth pain. 


Hand, foot, and mouth disease is often confused with foot-and-mouth disease (also called hoof-and-mouth disease), a disease of cattle, sheep, and swine. However, the two diseases are caused by different viruses and are not related. Persons concerned about their symptoms should contact their health care provider immediately.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me toll free at (877) 854-4689. Information is also available online from the CDC website at http://www.cdc.gov/hand-foot-mouth/index.html.

Back to School 2014 
Not Just Another Year, Not Just Another School - Make it Happen!

School will open on Monday, and the staff at USD #377 want to say welcome back to all of our returning students and parents.  And if you are new to our school, welcome to USD #377 Atchison County Community Schools.   A school district committed to our vision - "A Model Rural Community School District".  

Our promise to our students, our parents, and our communities is to give our very best each and every day, striving to ensure the personal success of every student through academic excellence and educational opportunity.  

During this exciting year, your children will enjoy the opportunity to interact and learn from a highly qualified faculty and staff at Atchison County Community Schools.  A staff who believes a high-quality education is the fundamental right of every child; and that every child can learn and be successful.  

The fall semester will begin on August 18th, 2014 with a variety of fun and interesting activities for students of all ages. On Thursday, August 21, the Junior Senior High, will have students trained on positive behavioral supports by the “Stand Up Student Ambassadors” with the event culminating in a live broadcast by KAIR Radio with the spinning wheel and the opportunity to win some fantastic prizes. Additionally, the Elementary School will be hosting a “Back to School Assembly” with fun events for all students to enjoy.

Educating your children is an important task, and we need your help to do it well. Please be sure your child comes to school each day rested and ready to learn. Attendance and arriving on time are also important – we don’t want our students to miss any instructional time, so please make sure your child is here on time every day.
     
We look forward to a great year at Atchison County Community Schools. If you have any questions about this upcoming year, please contact the Central Office at (913) 833-5050, ACCES at (913) 833- 4420, or ACCJSH at (913) 833-2240.


“Stand Up” Ambassadors at ACCJSHS

Students at ACCJSHS will have an opportunity this year to be a part of a new student ambassador program. In this program, students work with other students and staff to support and promote a school climate where everyone feels safe, productive, and part of a community. 

In an effort to get the student ambassador program off to a running start, a group of ACCHS students donated two of their summer vacation days to learn about the “Stand Up” Ambassador program. The students then spent an afternoon during teacher inservice training the teachers! 

On Thursday, August 21st, student ambassadors will work with the entire ACCJSH student body in Low Rope activities, which help students learn to work together and communicate effectively to complete different tasks. Once the students complete their Low Rope activities, the students will debrief, or talk, about their experiences and discuss how they worked together and then tie the activity to the student code of conduct. During the debriefing, students discuss teamwork, leadership, and succeeding in school. 

As an added benefit to the day, KAIR Radio will be broadcasting live from 11:00 - 1:00 during the student lunch hour! Students will also have the chance to win prizes!


TIGER BOOSTER CLUB ANNOUNCEMENT
All supporters of the ACCJSH students are encouraged to become part of the Tiger Booster Club! We are in the process of reorganizing and would like as much participation from the supporters of our students as possible. Volunteers are needed to bake cookies, work Booster Club dinners and events, make posters, and design fan clothing. The opportunities are endless!

Our goal is to make sure that our students at the Jr/Sr High School know that they have a family of supporters behind them.  Please help spread the word. We need many people to be involved to help make the load lighter for all.  For additional information, please contact Alison Ostertag--ostertag.alison@usd377.org
