Kindergarten Registration
On Wednesday, February 5th we will host Kindergarten Registration.  Kindergarten Registration is intended for any incoming  kindergarteners for the 2020-2021 school year.  Registration will take place at Einstein School from 9:00-11:00AM and 5:00-7:00PM.  If your child turns 5 years old on or before September 1, 2020 and your family is new to District 54 please read what you need to do to register for kindergarten.

Families new to District 54 should go to http://sd54.org/registration to begin your registration before February 5th.  Print the confirmation you receive and bring it to your neighborhood school on February 5th. Current District 54 families, with new kindergarteners, need to register through their Parent Portal account.

Along with the printed confirmation, you will need to bring your student’s original birth certificate (no copies) showing the student was born on or before September 1, 2015 (State of Illinois regulation).

Families new to District 54 must provide proof of residency on February 5, 2020.  All documents provided must be current, valid for 2020-2021, and reflect name and addresses within the school boundary.  Below are items that are needed to prove residency:

  • At least one of the following documents: The most recent real estate tax bill for residency showing owner as the taxpayer, or a signed lease for the residence including a beginning and end date, or a closing statement for the purchase of the residence.
  • And at least two of the following documents: Illinois driver’s license, gas, water, electricity, internet, television, telephone bill or letter confirming service connection, public assistance documentation, voter registration card, home or vehicle insurance certificate, Illinois automobile registration, or receipt for local city vehicle sticker where applicable.

From the Nurse
Causes for sore throats include viruses, bacteria and allergens. Viruses are the most frequent cause. Strep throat is a bacterial infection caused by A Streptococcus bacteria.

Symptoms

  • Sore throat
  • Fever that begins suddenly
  • Red throat, sometimes with white patches
  • Tender, swollen glands in neck
  • Vomiting

Diagnosis

  • Throat culture performed by medical professional
  • Rapid strep test is quicker but is not as reliable

Transmission

  • Spread by person-to-person contact
  • Spread indirectly through articles soiled with nasal secretions or saliva
  • Symptoms begin 1-3 days after exposure to illness

Treatment

  • Antibiotics are prescribed and taken as directed by physician
  • Student should remain home from school for 24-48 hours after starting the antibiotics
  • Student should remain home until they are fever free for 24 hours (without fever reducing medication)
  • Follow the course of treatment to prevent complications such as rheumatic fever

If your child develops symptoms similar to those of strep infection, please contact your physician. Inform the school nurse of a confirmed case. Remember that good hand washing is the number one way to prevent the spread of communicable disease.

Causas del dolor de garganta incluyen virus, bacterias y alérgenos. Los virus son la causa más frecuente. La faringitis estreptocócica es una infección bacteriana causada por la bacteria A estreptocócica.

Síntomas

  • Dolor de garganta
  • Fiebre que comienza repentinamente
  • Garganta roja, algunas veces con manchas blancas
  • Las glándulas del cuello se ponen suaves e inflamadas
  • Vómitos

Diagnóstico

  • Mediante un cultivo de la garganta realizado por un doctor
  • Una prueba rápida de estreptococo es más rápida pero no es tan confiable

Causas

  • Transmitida por contacto de persona a persona
  • Transmitida indirectamente a través de objetos contaminados con secreción nasal o saliva
  • Los síntomas comienzan 1-3 días después de haber estado expuesto a la enfermedad

Tratamiento

  • Los antibióticos prescritos por el doctor deben ser tomados tal como él lo indique
  • El estudiante debe permanecer en casa de 24-48 horas después de comenzar con los antibióticos
  • Los estudiantes deben permanecer en casa hasta que estén libres de fiebre durante 24 horas (sin medicamentos para reducir la fiebre)
  • Seguir el curso del tratamiento para evitar complicaciones como fiebre reumática

Si su hijo/a desarrolla síntomas similares a los de la infección por estreptococo(faringitis), por favor contacte a su doctor. Informe a la enfermera de la escuela de un caso confirmado. Recuerde que lavarse bien las manos es una de las mejores maneras para prevenir la transmisión de enfermedades contagiosas.

A Message From Mrs. Tarasiuk and Mrs. Sosin – January 9th

Dear Einstein Families,
 
​​​​​​​Welcome back and Happy New Year Einstein families! It was great to reconnect with our students and families after break.

We have successfully collected 2,500 pairs of shoes to donate to third world and developing countries. Our students did an amazing job collecting shoes with the help of our Kind Campaigners. Students learned that no matter where we come from and what we have, we can always give back. We are the change!

Einstein’s Coat and Shoe Closet
Einstein’s coat and shoe closet is up and running. We want to ensure that every child is prepared for the winter weather. If you are in need of coats, accessories, and shoes please do not hesitate to reach out to Michelle Roth at michelleroth@nullsd54.org.

Message from Nurse Joni
Often we ask ourselves, is my child too sick to go to school? Flu and cold season is upon us and often symptoms may look similar. Attached you will find more information to help determine when your child is healthy enough to return to school. Flu and Cold.docx Strep Throat.docx

Parking Lot Safety
We are working in conjunction with the Hanover Park Police Department to ensure student safety during pick-up and drop-off times. They are looking for our cooperation to utilize the drop-off area behind the school in a safe and orderly manner. The back drop-off is to be treated as a Drop and Go. Cars left unattended or are parked may be ticketed.  We find the back drop-off extremely beneficial for traffic flow and would like to continue to use this. Thank you for your cooperation.  

Winter Weather is Here!
Is your child dressed for the winter weather?  Sometimes our students like to scoot out of the door in the morning without gloves, hats, and boots.  With snowy and cold weather coming, make sure your child has a warm coat, gloves, and hat on them when they leave for school.  All students will go out for some fresh air for recess when the temperature is above zero degrees with the wind chill.  Snow pants and boots are needed if your child wants to play in the snow.  Otherwise, students will play on the blacktop that is cleared of snow.  When the wind chill index reaches below zero degrees or when precipitation causes outdoor activities to be extremely uncomfortable, recess is held indoors.  Therefore, please remember to help your child dress for the winter weather.

District 54 Cold Weather Response Plan

A Message From Mrs. Tarasiuk and Mrs. Sosin – November 18th

Dear Einstein Community,

It was incredible to see so many of our families attend our start to American Education Week.  Our students were excited to share their knowledge and their experiences with their families. Whether it was creating artwork, solving math equations on a Chromebook or reading to find key events, it was a great experience for all! Thank you for taking the time to join us here at Einstein!

The weather has come in with a fury! This is a friendly reminder that we open the doors for all students at 8:25. We do have students coming in through the front and back doors during arrival. Our back doors are not monitored by staff after 8:35, since classes begin promptly at 8:40. If your child arrives to school after 8:35, they will have to enter through the main entrance at the front of the building.

MAP Testing
The next round of MAP testing begins November 25, 2019. We are excited to monitor the progress of the goals we reviewed with your child earlier this year. Shortly after the conclusion of the MAP testing window, we will share the results with you.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Winter is here!
Is your child dressed for the weather?  Sometimes kids like to scoot out of the door in the morning without gloves, hats and boots.  With snowy and cold weather so quickly upon us, please make sure that your child has a warm coat, gloves and hat on them when they leave for school.  Snow pants and boots are needed if your child wants to play in the snow. When the wind chill index reaches below zero degrees, or when precipitation causes outdoor activities to be extremely uncomfortable, recess is held indoors.  So remember to help your child dress for the cold winter weather.

Trimester 1 Report Cards
Report cards for Trimester 1 will be live on the parent portal on November 20th. Please make sure that you have activated your Parent Portal account prior to the 20th so that you can access your child’s report card.

News from the School Nurse

It is that time of the year, the exact timing and duration of flu seasons can vary, but influenza activity often begins to increase in October.

CDC recommends three actions to fight the flu:

The first and most important step is to get a flu vaccine each year

  1. If you get sick with the flu, your doctor may prescribed antiviral drugs. Early treatment is especially important in the elderly, the very young, people with certain chronic health conditions, and pregnant women. If your child is sick talk to your doctor early, get plenty of rest and drink fluids.
  2. Take preventative actions that may slow the spread of germs that cause respiratory (nose, throat, and lungs) illnesses like the flu.

Spread: Flu viruses spread mainly from person to person through droplets made when a person with the flu, coughs, sneezes or talks. People infected with the flu may be able to infect others beginning day 1 before symptoms develop and up to 5-7 days after becoming sick.

Flu Symptoms include: fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, headache, chills, feeling tired, and sometimes vomiting and diarrhea.

Preventative Actions:

  1. If your child gets sick with flu-like symptoms, CDC recommends that the child stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone except to get medical care for other necessities. The fever should be gone without the use of fever-reducing medicine.
  2. When sick limit contact with others as much as possible.
  3. Cover nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze, wash hands with soap or water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol based hand rub.
  4. Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
  5. Clean and disinfect surface and objects that may be contaminated with germs.
  6. Routinely clean frequently touched objects and surfaces like doorknobs, keyboards, and phones.
  7. Contact your school nurse with questions.
  8. Visit www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/children.htm  for more information.

De la enfermera de la escuela;

Nuevamente nos encontramos en la temporada de gripe (FLU). El momento exacto y la duración de la temporada suele variar, pero la actividad de la gripe (Influenza) a menudo comienza a aumentar en octubre.

Hay 3 cosas que el CDC recomienda que usted puede hacer para combatir la gripe:

  1. El primer y más importante paso es vacunarse contra la gripe cada año.
  2. Si se enferma de gripe, su médico puede recetarle medicamentos antivirales. El tratamiento y prevención es especialmente importante en los ancianos, los infantes, las personas con ciertos problemas de salud crónica y las mujeres embarazadas. Si su hijo/a está enfermo/a, hable con su médico lo antes posible y asegúrese que descanse lo suficiente y se mantenga hidratado.
  3. Tome medidas preventivas que puedan retrasar la propagación de gérmenes que causan enfermedades respiratorias (nariz, garganta y pulmones) como la gripe.

Propagación: los virus de la gripe se transmiten principalmente de persona a persona a través de las gotas que se producen cuando una persona con gripe, tose, estornuda o habla.  Las personas infectadas con la gripe pueden infectar a otras a partir del día 1 antes de que se desarrollen los síntomas y hasta 5-7 días después de enfermarse.

Los síntomas de la gripe incluyen: fiebre, tos, dolor de garganta, secreción nasal, dolor de cuerpo, dolor de cabeza, escalofríos, sensación de cansancio y, a veces, vómitos y diarrea.

Acciones preventivas:

1. Si su hijo/a se enferma con síntomas similares a los de la gripe, el CDC recomienda que se quede en casa durante al menos 24 horas después de que la fiebre haya desaparecido, excepto para obtener atención y/o otras necesidades médicas. La fiebre debe desaparecer sin el uso de medicamentos antifebriles.

2. Cuando esté enfermo, limite el contacto con los demás tanto como sea posible.

3. Cúbrase la nariz y la boca cuando tosa o estornude, lávese las manos con agua o jabón durante al menos 20 segundos o use un desinfectante para manos a base de alcohol.

4. Evite tocarse los ojos, la nariz y la boca.

5. Limpie y desinfecte la superficie y los objetos que puedan estar contaminados con gérmenes.

6. Limpie rutinariamente objetos y superficies que se tocan con frecuencia, como pomos de las puertas, teclados y teléfonos.

7. Comuníquese con la enfermera de su escuela si tiene preguntas.
