100th Day Collections

For the past twelve years, Lincoln School classes have participated in
 a special activity for the 100th day of school. 
Each grade level has worked together to collect 100 of a specific personal item.  
The items are all donated to the Woburn Council of Social Concern. 
 These are items which are not typically covered by food stamps.  
We have been able to donate over 1,000 items each year, 
thanks to the generosity of Lincoln families. 

This year, all donations are asked to be brought in by Monday, February 12th.
Thanks to all the grade levels participating this year!

January Health Room update:

ATTENDANCE and ILLNESS GUIDELINES:     Cold season has begun!     
Please continue to teach proper and frequent hand washing techniques with
your children, as well as coughing in their sleeve!   Handwashing is the most
preventative form of spreading germs.   

Flu Symptoms:  Please email or call me if your child has a reported positive
case of influenza.  We are tracking illness in the district, as our usual protocol.  
The FLU is a very CONTAGIOUS disease of the respiratory system, easily
passed from one person to another by coughing and sneezing.  It starts suddenly
with a fever from 102-104 lasting 3-4 days.  Symptoms include headache, severe
muscle aches, general weakness/ extreme fatigue, dry cough, sore throat, and runny
Adults can pass the virus for 3-7 days after symptoms start.  Children can pass
the virus longer than 7 days. Students should stay at home until symptoms have
improved, usually 5-7 days, and there is no fever over 99” for 24 hours.
Children should take non-aspirin pain relievers such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen,
and should never take aspirin as they may develop a rare but serious disease
called Reye’s syndrome.
If you get the FLU, stay at home, rest and drink plenty of liquids.

Strep Throat:  A persistent sore throat, sometimes accompanied with fever or a
physician should evaluate upset stomach and a culture for Strep should be done.  
Sore throats may or may not be present with Strep, and not all kids have a fever.  
Children often complain of a stomachache and headache.  If a diagnosis of Strep is
made, students should stay at home until they have had at least 24 hrs of antibiotic
treatment, and fever is gone.
Respiratory diseases are spread through microscopic droplets from the nose, eye,
or throat.  Children should stay at home if they have any of the following:
A severe cold or persistent cough
Sore throat or swollen glands accompanied by fever
A fever over 99 degrees during the past 24 hours.
Stomach Bug:  There have been some cases of the stomach virus at Lincoln.  
Symptoms include: nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea, accompanied with abdominal
pain. There are many stomach aches lately, with or without vomiting.   Please keep
your child well hydrated if they present with symptoms.  Children should remain
home and symptom free for 24 hours (no nausea, or vomiting or diarrhea ) before
returningto school.

I would like to remind families to continue to check their children’s head for nits/lice.  
The only way to contain this nuisance in school is to continually check your
child(rens) heads routinely. (which means a couple times every week!)
If you have any questions as to what to look for, feel free to contact me.  Please
use the websites that are in the school lice policy, which is on the district website
under “Administration: Health Services.   I encourage you to notify me if any nits
or lice are found or treated.  Confidentiality will be maintained.  This is the best way
to manage this pesty problem.

Thanks for your cooperation! Stay well!    Truly,   Lynn Vozzella
