INFORMATION FROM OUR SCHOOL NURSE

I wanted to provide a link from the CDC, “Facts about COVID-19 for discussions with children”, to be shared with teachers who could then share the link with students & their families.

With the abundance of information on the news, social media, and other resources children may worry about COVID-19 and not understand everything. I wanted to share a resource created by the CDC for guidance in helping adults have honest and accurate conversations with children that may minimize anxiety or fear & hopefully increase understanding and healthy behaviors.

www.cdc.gov

This resource corresponds with the following Oklahoma Academic Standards for Health:

OK Academic Standard Health 3.5.2 - Locate resources fromhome, school and community that provide valid health information.

OK Academic Standard Health 1.2.3 - Describe ways to prevent communicable diseases.

Thank you,

Kassi Wise, RN, BSN

iPad Continuation Plan
Putnam City School District is proud to be a one-to-one technology district. This individual access to iPads allows our students the privilege to be on the cutting edge of education. To ensure that we can continue this program, students will be held accountable for damaged iPads. Below is the iPad Continuation Plan. Even with this plan, the district incurs a large amount of repair cost. Students will be held accountable for a portion of repair cost upon the second incident of damage during middle school, even if the damage does not occur within the same school
year. Incidents of damage do not start over each year, instead they carry over each year of middle school. Students who have outstanding damage fees will only be allowed access to a computer in the classroom until the damage charge is paid in full. The most common incident reported is iPads being stepped on while on the floor. Please communicate with your student to keep their iPad off of the floor at all times, especially while at lockers and switching classes. We look forward to another year of learning on iPads, and are grateful that our district is able to provide these great learning tools on an individual basis to students. iPad Continuation Plan:  1st Time – No charge,  2nd Time -$30 charge, 3rd Time - $50 charge, 4th Time -Full Repair Cost
