Dear Parents and Guardians,
Recognizing that students will be returning to brick and mortar on November 3rd; thereby increasing the density in schools and the district-wide capacity, in this pandemic, to 55%, it is necessary to make sure that measures are in place to minimize putting others at risk. To that end, a special discipline committee was established to put a protocol in place that is supported by District Policy 5500.

NEWS FROM THE CLINIC:
Sometimes it is difficult to make the decision about whether or not your child is sick enough to stay home from school. With minor symptoms early in morning, you cannot predict if he/she will feel better or worse during the course of the day. These guidelines can be of help when you’re trying to decide what’s best to do.
The main reason for keeping your child home are:
A child should stay home if there is:
Any of these problems may require a call to your child’s doctor.
FLU season. Practice and teach your child to cough into elbow, and wash hands frequently.
FACTS ABOUT HEADLICE:
Leon County Schools has a no nit policy. If you child has live lice and/nits, you will be called to pick up your child from school. Your child will be re-admitted to school when he /she, upon examination by clinic staff, is free of all lice and their eggs (nits). Please come into school with your child to be rechecked.
Nit removal is the key to successful treatment and necessary for a student to be re-admitted to school. This prevents the eggs from hatching into new lice. Lice shampoo is available at most drug stores. However, lice shampoo only kills live lice not their eggs (nits). You can prevent your child from contracting and spreading head lice by checking your child’s head periodically for lice. Do not share hats, scarves, jackets, towels, and brush/combs.
Fort Braden School is proud of our volunteers & mentors for our students. If you would like to volunteer or be a mentor please contact the school at (850) 488-9374.

As the first nine weeks comes to a close, Assistant Superintendent Gillian Gregory led a presentation in front of the Leon County School Board, providing members with updates after using the new hybrid learning model. This video features excerpts from the presentation, which featured feedback from nine teachers selected from throughout the district.
A native of Nairobi-Kenya, and a longtime teacher at Kate Sullivan Elementary School, Mr. Amon Rwito is multi-lingual—literally and figuratively—since he is fluent in five languages. He also strives to inspire a love for curiosity and discovery through the language of his favorite subject—science. Mr. Rwito is equally skilled in the written word and is a published author of a children’s book. His multi-cultural, multi-subject-matter approach allows for an “exchange of ideas and knowledge with my students. It’s important to want to learn from one another. I learn from my students more than I think I teach them.” #ThankATeacher
