Hands Across Northeast, Dec. 20
Northeast Bradford School District’s 32nd Annual Hands Across Northeast fundraiser to help deserving families during the holidays. Students, staff and community members are invited to donate money towards the purchase of food, clothing and toys as gifts for families in our district. Send donations to the elementary school office or to a student’s teacher. (Make checks payable to NEB Elementary School.)
For each donation received, a decoration will be added to the elementary school halls as a reminder of the spirit of giving.
The fundraising activity will culminate on Dec. 20 at 2 pm – when elementary school students and staff assemble in the front of the building to join hands in a circle and sing Christmas carols to commemorate this special time of year. Community members are welcome to take part.
When to Keep Your Sick Child Home
During cold and flu season, consider keeping your child home if he or she:
- Has a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher
- Has been vomiting
- Has symptoms that prevent him or her from participating in school, such as excessive tiredness or lack of appetite; productive coughing or sneezing; headache, body aches, ear ache; and sore throat. (Note: A minor sore throat is usually not a problem, but a severe sore throat could be strep throat even if there is no fever. Other symptoms of strep throat in children are headache and stomach upset. Contact your pediatrician as your child needs a special test to determine if it is strep throat.)
Keep your child home until his or her fever has been gone for 24 hours without medication. Colds can be contagious for at least 48 hours. Returning to school too soon may slow the recovery process and expose others unnecessarily to illness.
