The Edison PTA organizes the community events that we all enjoy (Fall Festival, Valentines Dance, Jogathon), advocates for children and families, supports classrooms, builds community, and raises funds for assemblies, field trips, extra equipment and supplies, and more.

Help us continue to grow Edison as a great learning community!

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK: KEEPING KIDS HEALTHY AT SCHOOL Last Friday, all families received a message from the Superintendent’s office regarding the coronavirus (2019-nCOV), the district’s coordination with public health agencies, preparations in case of an outbreak, and focus on prevention practices. As Dr. Drati shared, “SMMUSD district officials and health services members continue to be in contact with doctors and officials from the LACDPH, CDC, Los Angeles Office of Education (LACOE) and local leaders. The district follows the directives of the LACDPH and uses the recommended tools in the case of a communicable disease outbreak. The situation is rapidly evolving and adjustments are made based on the CDC and LACDPH recommend-ations.” Because of our experience several years ago with the Norovirus, we have experience collaborating with these agencies and following their protocols. Right now, the priority is on maintaining illness prevention practices. If your child is sick, it’s important to keep them home from school. Sick staff members are also asked to stay home. Anyone who has experienced fever should be symptom free for 24 hours before returning to school. In a potential virus outbreak, the worst idea is to send a child with fever to school (Tylenol may help minimize the discomfort they feel due to fever, but they are still contagious!). Aside from staying home when ill, frequent hand washing is very important to children to prevent illness. We are increasing reminders for handwashing (at least 20 seconds with soap and water) and making hand sanitizer available. We’re reminding children to cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash. And our nurse is providing training for teachers and staff so they can teach children best practices. Our staff is also reviewing containment practices should the virus reach students in our school. We’re increasing the schedule of disinfecting surfaces in classrooms during custodial cleaning, and stocking the campus with approved disinfectants. If the virus shows up in our district, the LACDH may ask us to cancel gatherings or other activities where lots of people are in close quarters. Those of you who were here during the Norovirus outbreak will recall that some events had to be postponed and/or cancelled and there were schools that were closed for a few days at the direction of LACHD. While we hope that such measures will not be necessary, we are ready if they should be needed. With preventive measures and people staying home when they are ill, we are optimistic and hopeful that our students, staff, families, and communities will avoid this illness. But, as Dr. Drati shared, if that should change, our schools will be ready, with our agency partners, to address it.

Manteniendo a los Niños Saludables en la Escuela El viernes pasado, todas las familias recibieron un mensaje de parte de la oficina del Superintendente sobre el coronavirus (2019-nCOV), la coordinación del distrito con agencias de salud pública, preparaciones en caso de una epidemia, y el enfoque en prácticas de prevención. Como compartió DR. Drati, “los oficiales del Distrito de SMMUSD y los miembros de servicios de salud continúan estar en contacto con los doctores y oficiales de LACDPH (Departamento de Salud Pública del Condado de Los Ángeles), CDC (Centro de Control de Enfermedades), la Oficina de Educación del Condado de Los Ángeles (LACOE) y líderes locales. El distrito sigue los directivos de LACDPH y usa las herramientas recomendadas en el caso de una epidemia de enfermedad contagiosa. La situación está evolucionando rápidamente y se están haciendo ajustes basados en las recomendaciones del CDC y LACDPH.” Por nuestra experiencia de hace algunos años con el Norovirus, tenemos la experiencia de colaborar con estas agencias y seguir sus protocolos. Ahora, la prioridad es mantener las prácticas de prevención de enfermedades. Si su hijo/a está enfermo/a, es importante mantenerlo en casa fuera de la escuela. A los miembros del personal enfermos también se les pide que se queden en casa. Cualquiera que ha tenido fiebre debe estar libre de síntomas por 24 horas antes de regresar a la escuela. En una epidemia de virus potencial, la peor idea es mandar al niño/a a la escuela (¡el Tylenol puede minimizar la incomodidad traída por la fiebre, pero todavía están contagiosos!) Aparte de quedarse en casa cuando estén enfermos, lavarse las manos frecuentemente es muy importante para prevenir enfermedades en los niños. Estamos aumentando los recordatorios para lavarse las manos (por lo menos 20 segundos con jabón y agua) y haciendo disponibles los desinfectantes de manos. Les estamos recordando a los niños que cubran su toz o estornudo con un pañuelo y después tirar el pañuelo en la basura. Y nuestra enfermera está proveyendo entrenamiento para los maestros y personal para que ellos puedan enseñarles las mejores prácticas a los niños. Nuestro personal también está revisando las prácticas de contención si el virus llega a los estudiantes en nuestra escuela. Estamos aumentando el horario para desinfectar las superficies en los salones durante la limpieza, y surtiendo a la escuela con desinfectantes aprobados. Si el virus se presenta en nuestro distrito, el LACDPH nos puede pedir que cancelemos reuniones u otras actividades donde muchas personas estén en cuartos cerrados. Ustedes quienes estuvieron aquí durante la epidemia del Norovirus podrán acordarse de que algunos eventos tuvieron que ser pospuestos y/o cancelados y tuvimos escuelas que fueron cerradas por algunos días por orden del LACDPH. Aunque esperamos que tales medidas no sean necesarias, estamos listos si son necesitadas. Con medidas preventivas y personas quedándose en casa cuando están enfermos, somos optimistas y llenos de esperanzas que nuestros estudiantes, personal, familias, y comunidades evitarán esta enfermedad. Pero, como compartió Dr. Drati, si eso cambia, nuestras escuelas estarán listas, con nuestras agencias compañeras, para enfrentarlo.
