Information About Influenza (English, Creole, Portuguese, Spanish)
Dear Spanish River Parents: January 26, 2018 The Florida Department of Health (the Department) reports that influenza, or “flu,” activity levels have increased sharply over the last several weeks. Flu is a contagious respiratory disease caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness. Serious outcomes of flu infection can result in hospitalization or death. Some people, such as young children, the elderly, and people with certain health conditions are at high risk for serious complications from flu. The Department is encouraging families to get vaccinated for flu now. Vaccination is the best way to protect against the flu and severe complications from the flu. Vaccination is most crucial for children with underlying health conditions such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease, and neurological and neurodevelopmental conditions. The flu vaccine is offered in many locations including pharmacies, clinics, employers, and schools. Contact your health care provider, county health department, or visit http://www.floridahealth.gov/findaflushot to find a flu vaccine center near you. The flu vaccine is safe. The national Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that all individuals six months of age and older receive the flu vaccine each year. Since infants under six months of age are too young to get vaccinated against influenza, it is important that family members (including pregnant or breastfeeding mothers) and other caregivers for these children be vaccinated to help protect them from the disease. It is especially important that parents keep sick children at home to prevent spreading the flu virus to others. Additional flu prevention steps include staying away from people who are sick, covering sneezes or coughs with a tissue or your elbow, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and frequent handwashing. If your child becomes sick with flu-like illness, contact your health care provider as soon after symptoms begin as possible. Symptoms of the flu often include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, headaches, or fatigue. Antiviral medication for flu has been shown to reduce severity and length of disease, decrease the risk of complications from influenza, and reduce the risk of death among hospitalized patients, particularly in those that start treatment early in their illness. Health care providers can prescribe antiviral treatment if appropriate. Treatment is most effective when started within 48 hours, so contacting your health care provider as soon as your child becomes ill is important, especially if your child has underlying health conditions. The best way to keep yourself and your family safe and healthy during flu season is to: • Get vaccinated; • Keep sick family members home; • Contact your health care provider if you or your child are experiencing flu-like symptoms; and • Follow your doctor’s guidance on treatment. For more information, please visit http://www.cdc.gov/flu/parents/index.htm. Sincerely, Principal William Latson ————————————————————————————————————- 20 janvye 2018 Chè Paran: Depatman Sante Florid (Depatman an) rapòte nivo aktivite sezon grip la (“influenza”), oswa “viris grip” (“Flu”) ogmante anpil pandan dènye semèn yo. Grip se yon maladi respiratwa kontajyez viris influenza koze. Li kapab lakoz moun malad nan yon eta plizoumwen grav. Ka enfeksyon grav grip kapab mande ospitalizasyon oswa koze lanmò. Genyen kèk moun, tankou jenn timoun, granmoun aje, ak moun ki genyen sèten kondisyon sante ki ak risk pou gen konplikasyon serye akoz grip. Depatman an ap ankouraje fanmi yo pou yo vaksinen kont grip kounye an. Vaksinasyon se pibon fason pou pwoteje kont grip ak konplikasyon grav grip koze. Vaksinasyon pi enpòtan pou timoun ki deja genyen pwoblèm sante tankou opresyon, dyabèt, maladi kè, ak kondisyon newolojik ak newodevlòpmantal. Yo ofri vaksen grip la plizyè kote ki enkli famasi, klinik, ajans, ak lekòl. Kontakte doktè ou, depatman sante rejyon an, oswa vizite http://www.floridahealth.gov/findaflushot pou jwenn yon sant vaksinasyon ki toupre ou. Vaksen grip la pa gen danje. Komite Konsèy Nasyonal nan Zafè Pratik Vaksen “The National Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP)” rekòmande pou tout endividi ki gen laj sis (6) mwa oswa plis resevwa vaksen kont grip chak ane. Paske timoun ki gen pipiti pase sis mwa twò jèn pou pran vaksen kont “influenza”, li enpòtan pou manm fanmi yo (sa enkli fanm ansent oswa manman k ap bay pitit tete) ak lòt moun k ap bay timoun sa yo swen pran vaksen an pou ede pwoteje timoun yo kont maladi a. Li espesyalman enpòtan pou paran yo kenbe timoun ki malad yo lakay pou anpeche yo simaye viris grip la bay lòt moun. Lòt etap sou prevansyon kont grip la enkli rete lwen moun ki malad, kouvri nen oswa bouch ak yon mouchwa oswa koud ou, evite touche je, nen, ak bouch ou, epi lave men w souvan. Si pitit ou a vin gen maladi ki sanble ak grip, kontakte doktè w byen vit apre sentòm yo kòmanse. Sentòm grip la souvan enkli lafyèv, tous, malgòj, nen koule, kò fè mal, maltèt, oswa fatig. Yo demontre medikaman kont viris grip redui severite ak dire maladi a, diminye risk konplikasyon kont grip la, epi redui risk lamò pami pasyan ki ospitalize yo, patikilyèman sa yo ki kòmanse tretman bonè nan maladi yo. Doktè yo kapab preskri tretman antiviral si sa nesesè. Tretman an pi efikas lè li kòmanse nan 48 èdtan, kidonk, li enpòtan pou kontakte doktè ou tousuit lè timoun nan malad, espesyalman si pitit ou a te deja genyen yon pwoblèm sante. Meyè fason pou kenbe tèt ou ak fanmi ou pwoteje epi ansante pandan sezon grip la se: • Al pran vaksen; • Fè manm fanmi ki malad rete lakay; • Kontakte doktè w si oumenm oswa pitit ou gen sentòm ki sanble ak grip la; epi • Suiv konsèy sou tretman doktè w la rekòmande. Pou plis enfòmasyon, tanpri vizite http://www.cdc.gov/flu/parents/index.htm. Sensèman, William Latson Direkte lekol la ———————————————————————————————————– Prezados pais, 26 de janeiro de 2018 A Secretaria de Saúde da Flórida (a Secretaria) relata que os níveis de atividade da gripe ou “flu” aumentaram abruptamente nas últimas semanas. A gripe é uma doença respiratória contagiosa causada pelo vírus da influenza, podendo causar sintomas leves ou graves. Consequências graves da infecção da gripe podem resultar em hospitalização ou morte. Algumas pessoas, como crianças, idosos e pessoas com determinadas condições de saúde estão em alto risco a complicações da gripe. A Secretaria está incentivando as famílias a vacinarem se imediatamente contra a gripe. A vacinação é a melhor maneira de proteger se contra a gripe e suas graves complicações. A vacinação é mais crucial para crianças com problemas de saúde, como asma, diabetes, doença cardíaca e condições neurológicas e de desenvolvimento neurológico. A vacina contra gripe está disponível em vários locais, incluindo farmácias, clínicas, escolas e em locais de trabalho. Entre em contato com seu médico, secretaria de saúde do condado ou acesse: http://www.floridahealth.gov/findaflushot para encontrar um centro de vacinação contra gripe perto de você. A vacina contra gripe é segura. O Comitê Assessor Nacional dos Procedimentos de Imunização (ACIP) recomenda que todos os indivíduos de seis meses de idade e acima tomem anualmente a vacina contra gripe. Como as crianças abaixo de seis meses são muito novas para tomar vacina contra gripe, é importante que os familiares (incluindo grávidas ou mães que estão amamentando) e outras pessoas que cuidam destas crianças sejam vacinados para ajudar a protegê-los contra a doença. É extremamente importante que os pais mantenham os filhos enfermos em casa para prevenir a disseminação do vírus da gripe. Medidas adicionais para prevenir a gripe incluem ficar longe de pessoas enfermas, cobrir os espirros ou tosse com um lenço descartável ou com seu cotovelo, evitar tocar seus olhos, nariz e boca e lavar as mãos frequentemente. Se o seu filho adoecer com sintomas semelhantes aos da gripe, entre em contato com o seu médico assim que os sintomas aparecerem. Os sintomas da gripe geralmente incluem febre, tosse, dor de garganta, nariz escorrendo, dores no corpo, dores de cabeça ou fadiga. Medicamento antiviral para a gripe tem demonstrado reduzir a intensidade e tempo da doença, diminuir o risco de complicações da gripe e reduzir o risco de morte entre os pacientes hospitalizados, particularmente naqueles que começam o tratamento no início da doença. Os profissionais de saúde podem prescrever tratamento antiviral, se necessário. O tratamento será mais eficaz quando for iniciado dentro de 48 horas, portanto, é importante entrar em contato com o seu médico assim que seu filho adoecer, especialmente se ele tiver problemas de saúde desconhecidos. A melhor maneira de manter os senhores e suas famílias seguras e saudáveis durante a temporada da gripe é: • Tomar a vacina; • Manter os membros da família em casa quando estivem enfermos; • Entrar em contato com o seu médico se os senhores ou seu filho estiverem apresentando sintomas semelhantes aos da gripe; e • Seguir as recomendações médicas para o tratamento. Para mais informações, favor acessar http://www.cdc.gov/flu/parents/index.htm. Atenciosamente, William Latson Diretor ———————————————————————————————————— Estimados padres: 26 de enero, 2018 El Departamento de Salud del Estado de la Florida (El Departamento) reporta que los niveles de influenza han aumentado rápidamente en las últimas semanas. La influenza es una enfermedad respiratoria contagiosa causada por el virus de influenza. La enfermedad puede causar síntomas desde leves hasta graves. Una infección seria de influenza puede resultar en hospitalización o muerte. Algunas personas, como los niños pequeños, los ancianos y las personas con algunas condiciones de salud presentan un riesgo más alto debido a complicaciones severas de influenza. Actualmente, el Departamento sugiere que las familias se vacunen contra el virus de la influenza. La inmunización es la mejor manera de protegerse contra la influenza y sus complicaciones graves. La inmunización es crucial para niños con condiciones de salud secundarias como asma, diabetes, enfermedades cardiacas y condiciones neurológicas y/o relacionadas con el desarrollo neurológico. La vacuna contra la influenza se ofrece en muchas instalaciones incluyendo farmacias, clínicas, centros de trabajo y escuelas. Puede contactar a su proveedor de salud, departamento de salud de su condado o visitar la página de internet: http://www.floridahealth.gov/findaflushot para encontrar un centro de vacunación conveniente para usted y su familia. La vacuna contra la influenza es segura. El Comité Asesor de Prácticas de Vacunación (ACIP por su sigla en inglés) recomienda que, a partir de los seis meses de edad, las personas reciban la vacuna contra la influenza cada año. Ya que los niños menores de seis meses de edad son demasiado jóvenes para recibir la vacuna, es importante que los miembros de la familia (incluyendo mujeres embarazadas o madres que están amamantando) y cuidadores de niños estén vacunados para ayudarlos a protegerse contra la enfermedad. Es especialmente importante que los padres mantengan a los niños enfermos en casa para prevenir la propagación de la influenza a otras personas. Prevención adicional contra la influenza incluye alejarse de personas enfermas, cubrirse con un pañuelo o el brazo al toser o estornudar, evitar tocarse los ojos, la nariz y la boca, además de lavase las manos con frecuencia. Si su hijo presenta síntomas parecidos a la influenza, contacte a su proveedor de salud(médico) lo más pronto posible después de que aparezcan los síntomas. Síntomas de la influenza frecuentemente incluyen: fiebre, tos, dolor de garganta, secreción nasal, dolores del cuerpo, dolor de cabeza o fatiga. Se ha demostrado que el tratamiento antiviral para la influenza reduce la gravedad y duración de los síntomas, disminuye el riesgo de complicaciones de la influenza y reduce el riesgo de muerte entre pacientes hospitalizados, en particular los que empiezan el tratamiento al principio de sus síntomas. Los médicos pueden prescribir tratamiento antiviral si es apropiado. El tratamiento es más efectivo cuando se comienza en las primeras 48 horas. Es importante contactar a su médico lo más pronto posible con los primeros síntomas, especialmente si su hijo tiene condiciones de salud secundarias. La mejor manera para que su familia y usted se mantengan seguros y sanos durante la época de influenza es: • Ponerse la vacuna • Mantener a los miembros de la familia en casa mientras están enfermos • Contactar a su médico si usted o su hijo están experimentando síntomas parecidos a la influenza, y • Seguir los consejos de su médico sobre su tratamiento Para más información, por favor visite la página de internet: http://www.cdc.gov/flu/parents/index.htm.

Attention Parents - Important FSA Information
September 25, 2017 Dear Parent/Guardian, The purpose of this letter is to inform you that students at Spanish River Community High School may be taking the computer-based Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) ELA Writing and Reading Retake and/or Algebra 1 or Geometry) End-of-Course (EOC) assessment(s) between September 27, 2017 and October 13, 2017. The FSA ELA Retake is administered over three days and consists of one 120-minute ELA Writing session and two 90-minute ELA Reading sessions. For the FSA ELA Writing Retake and ELA Reading Retake sessions, any student who has not completed a session by the end of the allotted time may continue working up to half the length of a typical school day for that session. FSA EOC assessments are administered in two 90-minute sessions over two days, and students may have up to half the length of a typical school day to complete each session. If applicable to your student, he/she may have had an opportunity to participate in a practice test to become familiar with the computer-based testing platform, item types, and response formats he or she will see on the FSA assessment(s). If you or your student would like to review the computer-based practice test at home, the practice tests and answer keys are available at http://www.FSAssessments.org/students-and-families/practice-tests/. Please review the following policies with your student before testing:  Electronic Devices—Students are not permitted to have any electronic devices, including, but not limited to, cell phones, smartphones, and smartwatches, at any time during testing or during breaks (e.g., restroom), even if they are turned off or students do not use them. If your student is found with an electronic device, his or her test will be invalidated.  Calculators—For EOC assessments, calculators may be used during Session 2 only. If students have handheld calculators during Session 1, their tests will be invalidated. For more information about calculator policies, see the FSA Calculator and Reference Sheet Policies document on the FSA Portal.  Testing Rules Acknowledgment—All FSA tests include a Testing Rules Acknowledgment that reads: “I understand the testing rules that were just read to me. If I do not follow these rules, my test score may be invalidated.” Prior to testing, test administrators read the rules to students, and students acknowledge that they understand the testing rules by signing below the statement on their planning sheets, worksheets, or work folders.  Discussing Test Content after Testing—The last portion of the testing rules read to students before they sign below the Testing Rules Acknowledgment reads: “Because the content in all statewide assessments is secure, you may not discuss or reveal details about the test items or passages after the test. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, or posting online, for example, on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, or Instagram.” Please make sure your student understands that “discussing” test content includes any kind of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, or posting to blogs or social media websites, etc. While students may not share information about secure test content after testing, this policy is not intended to prevent students from discussing their testing experiences with their parents/families.  Working Independently—Students are responsible for doing their own work during the test and for protecting their answers from being seen by others. If students are caught cheating during testing, their tests will be invalidated. In addition, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) employs Caveon Test Security to analyze student test results to detect unusually similar answer patterns. Student tests within a school that are found to have extremely similar answer patterns will be invalidated.  Leaving Campus—If your student leaves campus before completing a test session (for lunch, an appointment or illness, etc.), he or she will not be allowed to return to that test session. If your student does not feel well on the day of testing, it may be best for him or her to wait and be tested on a make-up day.  Testing Accommodations—If your student has an Individual Education Plan (IEP), Section 504 Plan, or is an English Language Learner (ELL), please contact the school to discuss the testing accommodations that will be provided for your student. If you have any questions related to this test administration, you may contact Mrs. Mara J. Goron or Dr. Kia Allen-Jefferson, Assistant Principals, at 561-241-2201. For more information about the FSA program, please visit the FSA Portal at www.FSAssessments.org. Thank you for supporting your student and encouraging him or her to do his or her best during this test administration. Sincerely, Mr. William R. Latson, Ed. S.
