Coordinator’s Message: Though we teachers in CORE believe learning is more important than grades, I want to congratulate the 126 Corebabies who received Straight A’s first semester. This is an outstanding achievement and deserves recognition. We will honor these students on Tuesday @ Nutrition, otherwise known as “Straight-A Cupcake Day.” Congratulations to…

Flu Season: Staying healthy this flu season is particularly important to all of us, especially me! Please do your part to keep yourself and our community healthy by doing the following:
- If you are sick with flu-like illness, fever or feeling feverish/chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, fatigue (tiredness), vomiting and diarrhea, please stay home.
- The CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.)
- While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them. Please avoid the Magnet Office if this is the case.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand wipes. In fact, keep them in your back pack.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
- Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.
- The CDC strongly recommends getting a flu shot, if possible.
- Also, please avoid the Magnet Office if you are sick. Thank you!
