Gamble Rogers is implementing a new policy for students who arrive tardy to school (this means checking in after 7:50 AM) multiple times during a Quarter. Any student who accumulates more that 5 Unexcused Tardies during a Quarter will serve Lunch Dentention for each tardy thereafter during that Quarter.

Detentions will either be served in the In-School Suspension room or in the Overflow room of the cafeteria under the supervision of our school’s Resource Officer, Deputy Harrell.


This year through a new app called Remind 101
I will be sending text updates to our community about important class information.

See directions below on how to set up the app:

       How to prepare for FLU season!

CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease. While there are many different flu viruses, the seasonal flu vaccine is designed to protect against the top three or four flu viruses that research indicates will cause the most illness during the flu season. People should begin getting vaccinated soon after flu vaccine becomes available, ideally by October, to ensure that as many people as possible are protected before flu season begins.

In addition to getting vaccinated, you can take everyday preventive steps like staying away from sick people and washing your hands to reduce the spread of germs. If you are sick with flu, stay home from work or school to prevent spreading flu to others.
Message from the School Nurse…
When Do You Keep A Sick Child Home? 

Consider keeping children at home for an extra day of rest and observation if they have:
* Fever greater than 100 degrees
* Chills
* General tiredness or not feeling good
* Frequent congested (wet) or croup-sounding cough
* Lots of nasal congestion with frequent blowing of nose

Stomach symptoms are not a part of cold or flu symptoms  but for good health sake follow these guidelines for staying home and preventing spread of disease:
* Vomiting (even just once)
* Diarrhea
* Symptoms of cold or flu

A cold or flu spreads most easily during the first 48 hours. A child who has a fever should remain at home until the fever
has been 100 degrees or lower for 24 hours. Usually, antibiotics are not given for simple colds and flu. Strep throat or ear infections may require antibiotics. A child taking antibiotics should be on the medication for 24 hours before returning to school. A child may awaken with unclear complaints, which could be a cold or flu. If this happens, it is wise to observe him or her at home for an hour or two before deciding whether to bring him/her to school. Many of you do this already!

Consider keeping children at home for an extra day of rest and observation if they have: 
* Very stuffy or runny nose, and/or cough
* Mild sore throat (no fever, no exposure to strep throat)
* Headache

A child should be physically able to participate in all school activities when returning to school.
Keeping a sick child at home will help reduce the spread of colds and flu in the classroom. It is a very long day for a child who is sent to school sick.

For additional information, we recommend the following websites:
