October 2018 Superintendency Message

A message from Assistant Superintendent Lori Jo Rasmussen:

I love this time of year! We are fortunate to live in Utah with its four distinct seasons. Fall brings with it colorful landscapes, crisp weather, football, and of course the harvest season. I love all fall has to offer, but the harvest season is dear to my heart because it has given me valuable insights in my life.

My grandpa and grandma were master gardeners. They came by this naturally. With a lot of hard work and determination, they achieved great success! Friends, family, and neighbors all benefitted from my grandpa and grandma’s garden. It was a simple garden by today’s standards, just a plot of fertile ground with immaculate dirt rows, but the harvest was incredible. I would watch amazed at how a little seed could produce the amazing fruits and vegetables we would enjoy!

I came to understand that a whole garden isn’t created overnight, and neither is any lofty goal or change you want to achieve or make in your life. When a seed is cared for with sunlight and water it starts to grow and develop into the magnificent wonder it was meant to be. It is much the same with any new endeavor or journey. When one pays attention to their dreams and aspirations, to the “seeds” planted in their lives, a beautiful transformation can take place. Each seed is the start of something new, something bigger than one can imagine.

Parents and educators plant seeds of hope and beginnings each and every day in their children’s and student’s lives. They nurture and care for them daily. Many times, the true fruits of their labor and the beautiful transformation take some time. It can be years later, when a child has reached adulthood or when a student has graduated, that the transformation has truly taken place. What a wonderful harvest!

There is no better time than the present to work towards the life you dream of for yourself, your students, or your family! There is a quote that speaks to this; “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second-best time is today.” Time to grab a shovel and get to work!

We thank our parents, educators, and families for the fine work, true dedication, and unwavering commitment to help our students grow!

Don’t judge each day by the harvest that you reap, but by the seeds that you plant!

Dear Parents or Guardians:

Recently, in the news, there have been reports of Norovirus outbreaks in our state – we’ve even had a report of a small outbreak in one of our schools. As of right now, there have been no confirmed cases of Norovirus in any school in Weber District. We have been in direct contact with the Weber Morgan Health Department to obtain this confirmation.

The remaining portion of this letter is for those who want additional information about Norovirus, in general. We encourage you to read on!

What is Norovirus?

Norovirus, sometimes referred to as the "winter vomiting bug," is the most common cause of gastroenteritis, a viral infection characterized by diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, stomach pain, fever, headache, and body aches. Norovirus illness is NOT related to the flu, which is caused by the influenza virus.

How Norovirus is Transmitted:

Norovirus spreads easily! A person usually develops symptoms 12-48 hours after being exposed to Norovirus, and most people will get better within 1-3 days. Norovirus is very contagious and can be contracted from:

  • Having direct contact with an infected person;
  • Consuming contaminated food or water; and/or
  • Touching contaminated surfaces then putting unwashed hands into the mouth.

How to Prevent the Spread of Norovirus:

To protect yourself and others from Norovirus:

  • Wash your hands often (especially after using the toilet or changing diapers; always before eating, preparing, or handling food; and before giving yourself or others medicine);
  • Rinse fruits and vegetables;
  • Cook shellfish thoroughly;
  • Stay home when sick and for two days after symptoms stop;
  • Avoid preparing food for others when sick and for two days after symptoms stop;
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces, wearing rubber or disposable gloves, and by wiping the entire area with paper towels. Follow with disinfecting the area using a bleach-based household cleaner as directed on the product label. The cleaner should be left on the affected area for at least 5 minutes, then the surface cleaned again with soap and hot water. Cleaning soiled laundry, taking out the trash, and washing your hands after cleaning are very important final steps!
  • Wash laundry thoroughly, handling soiled laundry wearing rubber or disposable gloves. Wash items with detergent and hot water at the maximum available cycle length then machine dry at the highest heat setting.

How to Treat Norovirus:

Norovirus causes flu-like symptoms. If you or your child contracts this virus, follow these guidelines:

  • Prevent dehydration. Drink plenty of liquids to replace fluid lost from vomiting and diarrhea. This will help prevent dehydration. Sports drinks and other drinks without caffeine can help with mild dehydration. Dehydration can lead to serious health issues. Severe dehydration may require hospitalization for treatment.
  • Watch for signs of dehydration in children:
    • Child may cry with few or no tears; and/or
    • Child may act unusually sleepy or fussy.
  • Contact your doctor with concerns.

 

To learn more about this very contagious virus, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website: https://www.cdc.gov/norovirus.

For further questions about the Norovirus, please contact the Weber-Morgan Health Department: http://www.webermorganhealth.org/

We hope your child has enjoyed his or her first few days of school! We thank you for sharing your child with us!

Sincerely,

Weber School District Superintendency, Student Services Team and Nurses

September 2018 Superintendency Message

School has officially begun in the Weber School District. It's always fun to see the students, staff and parents again as we start a new year. There's always a lot of enthusiasm and excitement on the faces of those who enter our buildings.

Every year a group of district administrators accompanies the Superintendent to all of our elementary schools where we have the opportunity to share a book and read with each grade. This is a fun time for the administrators to get into schools and interact with the children and school staff.  

Two thoughts always come to my mind each year as we do this:

  1. What great students and staff we have in our schools. The students seem to come better prepared every year. This is a direct result of parental support. It's also a positive experience to see how the teachers and staff interact with the students and how well-behaved the students are as they gather together for us to read to them. This is a reflection on the teachers and staff that work so well with these students to help them not only with their academics but also with their social and management skills.
  2. As we read with these students, it also reminds me of the importance of helping with and reading to our children. No matter what grade we read to, the children love learning about new people, places and experiences. Two quotes that I think about when I get to read to children are:
  • "Once you learn to read, you will be forever free." – Frederick Douglass
  • "The more you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you'll go." – Dr. Seuss

Reading is a fundamental process to our childrens' educational success. Spending time reading with a child is very rewarding not only for the child but also to the reader. Here's to great and productive year. Thanks to everyone for your support.
