MRSA INFORMATION

Dear Parents:

I am sure most of you have all heard or seen on the news the recent increase of reported cases of MRSA that is spreading throughout the nation and showing up in schools. The local health department and CDC have guidelines that are suggested to prevent and decrease the spread of MRSA. We ask that you take a few minutes and read over the information found at the link below.

http://health.state.ga.us/mrsa/

We always have the well being of our students and staff in mind. We are taking extra steps in making you are aware of MRSA by sending out these guidelines. As always, we are available to hear your concerns and comments. As of today we have not had any cases of MRSA reported in our school system.

Sincerely, 

Sandy Acker, RN

RECOGNIZING A STROKE

Recognizing a Stroke

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Doctors now say that a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: "3" steps. STR:

S* Ask the individual to SMILE.

T* Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE coherentl. For example: "It is sunny out today."

R* Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call 911 immediately, and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

 

New Signs of a Stroke ----- Stick out Your Tongue

Ask the person to stick out their tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked' or if it goes to one side or the other, that is also an indication of a stroke.
