KES Collects More Than 1,000 Pounds of Food
Katonah Elementary School families proved their generosity and holiday spirit by collectively donating 1,037 pounds of food as part of the school’s Holiday Share Food Drive this year.
Sponsored by the PTO and led by chairs Kim Moskowitz and Liz Hill, the food drive drop-off at the Community Center of Northern Westchester in Katonah on Nov. 14 was a huge success.
From the Nurse’s Offices of KLSD
EV-D68 is causing cases of severe respiratory (breathing) illness among
children and other individuals. Such illness has sometimes been
resulting in hospitalization, especially among children with asthma.
The New York State Department of Health is advising parents and health
care providers to be aware of the signs and symptoms of enterovirus
EV-D68, a serious respiratory illness which has now been confirmed in
more than a dozen children in New York State.
Symptoms to Look For:
How It Is Spread
Enteroviruses are transmitted through close contact with a person who
has the virus, or by touching objects or surfaces that have the virus on
them and then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes.
What You Can Do Protect Yourself
It is important to protect yourself and others reminding your children to:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid kissing, hugging, and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who are sick.
- Disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as toys and doorknobs, especially if
someone is sick.
- Use the same precautions you would use to prevent the spread of influenza (flu).
These prevention steps are especially important for individuals or
persons with family members who are infants, or who have chronic health
conditions or compromised immune systems.
What to Do If Your Child Feels Ill
If your child is sick with a runny nose, cough, fever, or aches which
are signs of an upper respiratory infection, do not send your child to
school. Allow them to rest and recover at home. Contact your medical
provider immediately if your child becomes seriously ill.
