All Pro Dad’s Breakfast

Dear Parents,

Thank you for all you do for our school. The students sold over $1400.00 in cookie dough. In which we received 40% profit. The orders should be delivered to our school in approximately two weeks and we will let you know when to make arrangements to pick up the orders. We will also let you know soon when the Hummer ride to CiCi’s will take place.

We are so excited about three events that will take place in November. On November 7th , we will have a Veterans’ Day Program at 9:00 in the gym. If you have photos of family members who are Veterans and would like for them to be included in the slide show presentation, please send the photo with the name of the Veteran and who the Veteran is to your child. For example, Lloyd Ray Trull is the father of Vanessa Clay. These photos will be returned after they are uploaded to the slide show. Please send in photos no later than Monday, November 3rd.

We will also be hosting our first All Pro Dad’s Breakfast on November 20th from 7:10-8:00 a.m. in the gym. We will have sausage biscuits and juice or milk. We are asking that you prepay so that we know how much food to prepare. Breakfast for visitors is $1.50 and for students is $1.00. If your child qualifies for free or reduced lunch of if you want us to take the money out of their account for breakfast please include the lunch number. However, you cannot pay for your breakfast using your child’s lunch account number.  The guest speaker for the breakfast will be Mr. David Kelley who is the pastor of Buhl Church of God. He is excited about this event and looks forward to sharing some encouraging news. Students and dads may attend as well as grandfathers, uncles, brothers (older) etc.  For more information feel free to email vclay@tcss.net or call the school at 342-2640.

Our Thanksgiving family lunch will  be November 19-20. So that we have adequate seating we will offer the same lunch on two days. K, 2, & 4th will participate November 19th and 1st, 3rd, and 5th will be on November 20th during their regular lunch times. We would love for you to join us at Buhl Elementary.

Buhl Elementary is a 7 Habits school!

Habit 1: Be Proactive - I have a "Can Do" attitude and always try my best at everything I do.

Habit 3: Put First Things First: I do things I have to do before the things I want to do.
Habit 4: Think Win-Win - I am a problem solver when an issue comes up with another person and I think about what others want and not just what I want.

Enterovirus D68

CONTACT: Mary G. McIntyre, M.D., M.P.H., (334) 206-5325

Reports of cases from across the nation have prompted concern among parents of children and teenagers about enterovirus D68 (EV-D68).

On Aug. 29, 2014, the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) sent a message to all primary care physicians to consider testing for EV-D68 in children with severe respiratory illness and no other known cause. ADPH asked health care providers to report a cluster or outbreak of cases. While individual cases of enterovirus do not require reporting, a cluster or outbreak must be reported.

ADPH is currently investigating two clusters of respiratory illness in children, one in Mobile and one in north Alabama. Six specimens have been received and they have been sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for testing for EV-D68. It may take several weeks before ADPH receives those test results, because many states have submitted specimens to be tested.

In general, enteroviruses have various symptoms, including mild respiratory, fever, rash and neurologic illness. EV-D68 has more severe respiratory symptoms. There is no vaccine; treatment depends on the symptoms, and prevention is very important.  To prevent EV-D68 and all other communicable viruses like influenza, people need to

• Wash their hands frequently
• Cover their cough
• Keep children home if ill
• Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
• Avoid kissing, hugging, and sharing cups and eating utensils with sick people
• Disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as toys and doorknobs

If you or a family member has severe respiratory symptoms, please contact your doctor and follow his/her advice.
