Spring is quickly approaching!
In the coming months, we can expect longer days, more blooms, and more sunshine. Which is wonderful!
However, it also means more allergens, bees, and heat. Especially while the weather is still in transition, please make sure your student is dressing in layers. The mornings are still chilly, but by the afternoon, I’m seeing students overheating in their sweatshirts and long-sleeves. Also, please make sure your student is coming to school with a full water bottle and is drinking and refilling it! Warmer weather means more running around outside, but that also means hydration is that much more important!
Also, if appropriate for your student, taking a daily, non-drowsy allergy medication before coming to school can keep the itchy eyes and runny noses away, which will keep your student learning in class!
Lastly, if your student has a more severe allergy to any stinging insect, please make sure I have that information. Whether they need an emergency kit stored with me, or they are equipped to self-carry an epipen, having the proper forms and information keeps your student safe.
