SCCS celebrates annual Health Weeks September 15 – 26
The health and safety of the members of our community is an ongoing concern. As a school we have made a commitment to focus on healthy practices and routines early in the year. To this end, we have set aside two weeks every September to review healthy practices. Topics covered include:
Wash Your Hands – Throughout the weeks, students review effective hand-washing techniques and community expectations.
Cover Your Mouth – Proper protocols with regard to coughing are reinforced throughout the weeks.
Nutrition – As students eat lunches and several snacks daily, healthy eating practices are discussed and encouraged.
Transmission –Everyone is asked to take this opportunity to review/learn how disease is transmitted and how we can prevent others from getting sick. Parents are encouraged to review the information on the school website for more information (http://www.stccs.ca/illnesses.html).
Keep your hands away from your mouth or objects. Students, especially younger students, are strongly encouraged to exercise caution.
Throughout both weeks, teachers will be addressing these topics in classes. Each class will develop a healthy lifestyle routine that includes scheduled opportunities for hand-washing throughout the day. If you have any questions about the material being covered, please speak with a teacher.
