A Note from the Nurse Parent Information - Hand-foot-mouth disease (HFMD) Hand-foot-mouth disease (HFMD) is a common spring/summer time viral illness that affects infants and children. Its name describes the location of the rash during the illness. Typically, children experience fever, sore throat and small blisters in the mouth followed by small blisters on the hands and then feet. It takes a week to 10 days for the virus to run its course. HFMD is moderately contagious. The virus is spread through coughing and sneezing but can also be spread through feces. You can prevent getting HFMD by washing your hands often and avoiding close contact with people who have it. There is no specific treatment for HFMD. You can use home care to relieve the child’s symptoms. Cool fluids can help with sore throat and mouth blisters. Avoid acidic or spicy food and drinks. Fever and pain can be managed by over-the-counter fever reducers and pain relievers. Fluids should be encouraged to prevent dehydration. Hand-foot-mouth disease is not the same as foot-and-mouth disease (also called hoof-and-mouth disease), which affect cattle, sheep and swine.

Free and Reduced Lunch Applications Applications for reduced price and free school meals are accepted throughout the year. Families must reapply annually to receive these benefits. Area 1 applications can be obtained from the Camp Casey ACS Financial Readiness Program located in Building 2451 right next to Casey Elementary School.

PUPIL PERSONNEL SERVICES (PPS) DEPARTMENT Health & Wellness Provided by School Counseling, Nursing, and Psychology Services Casey School has a zero-tolerance policy towards bullying and promotes Peaceful behaviors in all students. Character counts! Casey Pledge – No Bullying! “I am a Casey Wolf. This means that I will always be nice to others at school and will never bully them. I will use kind words and agree to keep my hands and feet to myself. I will always remember that everyone deserves respect.” Peer Pressure for Adults Janice felt her face getting hot. She was certain every customer in the grocery store was staring and judging. She swore she could feel every adult urging her to "do something about that little brat." For some reason, this perceived pressure made Janice much angrier than if her daughter had acted out in private. When they got to the car, Janice lost her cool. When she got home and told her husband, Bill, he felt pressure too. His beloved wife had been embarrassed in public and he couldn't put up with that. Fortunately for their daughter, neither Janice nor Bill became abusive, but they did both react more harshly than usual. The Strength of the Wolf is the Pack… The Strength of the Pack is the Wolf.

Are adults affected by peer pressure too? Do we allow our fear of what others think to make us lose our cool? Many parents have told us they have a harder time staying calm when the school, the neighbors, or especially strangers are exposed to their kids' misbehavior - and the adults are exposed to humiliation. Wise parents realize that all kids are going to have their moments and some of those moments are bound to be witnessed by others. These wise adults remember that their ultimate goal is to raise great kids - not to impress the neighbors. This helps them view kids' mistakes as learning opportunities and resist the urge to overreact and do something right now. Wise adults also have a plan for staying calm when they get frustrated with their kids and practice responses before they find themselves ranting and raving. They take steps to set themselves up for success when things get intense.

Help us earn money for our school! FROM THE OFFICE * If you wish to have a transportation message relayed to your child, please contact the school prior to 1330. Often students are in specials, away from the building, etc., and it is difficult at best to get these messages to the students. Please plan appropriately. We ask for advance notice to better assist you in this process.
