Teacher Appreciation Week
Teacher Appreciation Week will take place Monday, May 1 – Friday, May 5, 2017. Since 1984, the National PTA has designated the first week in May as a special time to honor the men and women who lend their passion and skills to educating our children. Please contact your child's room-parent for additional information.
Thank you for your support in making this, and every week at FIDS, a wonderful learning experience for our children. Your partnership is greatly appreciated.
As shared in my newsletter of August 5, 2016, FIDS has been proactive in its efforts to mitigate the spread of mosquitos on the school campus, with such efforts exceeding those of the South Florida community. In response to the outbreak of the Zika virus in South Florida, we have amplified our mitigation efforts as follows:
· Misting of the school’s perimeter and playground area
twice daily (at approximately 6:30 a.m. and
· Draining standing water daily whenever it is
· Keeping doors and windows closed to the degree
· Providing staff development on Zika to all faculty and
· Providing parents with the option for FIDS's staff to keep
their child indoors during lunch, P.E., and recess.
Additionally, you may want to consider the following:
· Long-sleeved shirt and pants uniform options, including
the new addition of the long sleeved, mesh polo dress
· Cover your child’s skin with light clothing, and apply
mosquito repellent prior to sending your child to school.
· Provide your child’s teacher with a bottle of your
preferred mosquito repellent, labeled with your child’s
name. This is only for the purpose of reapplication of
repellent. Parents are responsible for applying mosquito
repellent on their children prior to sending them to
· Keep informed of the latest research and advisories as
new information is unfolding daily.
NOTE: Please be advised that local and state health
authorities have not issued mandates to close schools
and/or restrict outside activities. With that in mind,
FIDS is open with the above outlined measures in place.
We will continue to keep you informed of our practices
as student safety is our top priority.
