October is Statewide Parental Involvement
and Visitation Month.

 Homes and Schools: Building Futures Together

Parental Involvement is such a critical factor in determining the success and failure of students and schools. Therefore, the Alabama Department of Education recognizes the need for ongoing parental involvement. To encourage and engage parents and the community, October is celebrated as statewide Parental Involvement and Visitation Month in Alabama.

Thomasville City Schools would like to invite parents to visit and learn how they can become partners in their child’s education. During the month of October, each school will celebrate parental involvement with a variety of activities and parent meetings. We encourage all parents to take the opportunity and visit their child’s school to participate in an activity and/or attend a parent meeting. Parental involvement is one of the keys to a student’s success in school and parents and teachers are partners in educating children. We look forward to seeing our partners during the month of October and throughout the school year!

Important News About Staph Infections

     Due to recent reports of staph infections among our students, we would like to report our findings, procedures, and response. Staphylococcus aureus (staph) is a type of bacteria and one of the most common causes of skin infections in the United States.  Skin infections caused by staph look like pimples or boils and may be red, swollen, painful, or have pus or other drainage.  Most staph skin infections are minor and may be easily treated.  However, staph may also cause more serious infections of the bloodstream, surgical sites or pneumonia.

     The first report to the school system was made at the beginning of the week of September 22, 2014.  It was a report of a staph infection of a Thomasville Middle School football player.  An e-mail was sent to all coaches within the school system notifying them of the report and giving them information about staph and instructions to begin the cleaning process of all athletic locker rooms, weights and equipment.  This process has been completed.  All teachers/staff have been informed to clean classrooms and equipment thoroughly and report any suspected infections to the school nurse.

     We are continuing to monitor our students within the school system for signs/symptoms of staph infections.  Please be aware that we continually stress proper hygiene, good hand washing, proper cleaning of classrooms and athletic facilities, and proper care of open sores and abrasions at school.  However, we need the help of parents and students to prevent the spread of contagious diseases and infections by reporting known cases as soon as possible.

 AT HOME:  Please encourage good hand washing and hygiene as well.  Instruct your children not to share personal items.  Please cover any open area with a bandage that seals on all sides.  If your child has a draining skin lesion that persists for more than a few days, please see a doctor.  ALWAYS notify the school nurse or principal of any contagious infection.  Together we can prevent the spread of staph infections.

 

If you have any questions, please contact your school nurse.

Important Announcement for Parents

      As reports of the enterovirus 68 (EV-68) increase around the nation, we would like to keep parents informed about signs and symptoms to monitor in their children as well as preventive measures we should all be taking to avoid the spread of EV-68.  Symptoms of the virus can vary from mild to severe.  They may include fever, cough, runny nose, body aches, and can become severe with wheezing and difficulty breathing.  There is no vaccine for this virus, and treatment is dependent upon the symptoms a person is having.  Prevention of the spread of EV-68 is very important and should include the following:  wash hands frequently, cover your coughs, avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands, do not kiss, hug or share eating utensils with people who are sick, disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs, and do not send children to school if they are sick.  If you child has severe respiratory symptoms, please contact your doctor.   You may contact your school nurse or your child’s physician if you have any questions.  You can find more information at www.cdc.gov.

 Social Media Kick Off!

September was Social Media Month for Thomasville City Schools! The goal is to promote the positive things happening in academics, athletics, extra-curricular activities, and student/community involvement. TCS wants to use social media to get the word out about the great things happening in our schools!

 TCS now has a Facebook page, in addition to each of the school’s individual Facebook pages. If you have not “liked” these pages, please do so and share them with your friends.  Our schools are also on Twitter and Instagram.
