Media and technology are at the center of our children’s lives. As a parent and an educator, I worry about how our children will navigate this world that is so different from our own experiences. From a young age, children are attracted to cellphones, iPads, laptops and chrome books. We need to be sure to monitor what they see and the amount of time they spend on line. As parents, we have a lot to learn about how to support our children who are growing up in this world of technology. 
 Remember, the phone, Ipad, and laptop are yours. You are paying for it.
 Limit the amount of time your child can spend on line.
 Read your child’s texts and/or email regularly.
 Don’t allow your children to be on social media site
or apps unless they are of age. Most website and apps, such as TikTok are intended for users age 13 and over. Please do not allow a child under the age of 13 to use the app.
 Have open conversations about the use of technology and social media behavior. 
 Set the example of how to balance the use of technology. 
 Make a Family Media Agreement 
There are many wonderful resources to help all of us as we try to keep up with our children’s knowledge of technology. Common Sense Media is an excellent resource for parents. Common Sense is the nation's leading nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in the 21st century. You can check out their website and follow them on Twitter@CommonSense. I highly recommend that you take a look and bookmark the page. Let’s work together to keep our children safe and having fun. 
Thank you.

From the Health Office: The cold weather is here! These are the health issues we have seen at school this week. If your child complains of not feeling well, please keep these symptoms in mind and see your doctor if you have any concerns:

Stomach virus: nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, fatigue

Strep Throat: sore throat that usually comes on quickly, fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, swollen glands in neck, swollen tonsils, red spots at the back of the throat, body aches, difficulty swallowing

As a reminder, students who have had an episode of fever, vomiting, or diarrhea must remain out of school for at least 24 hours after the last episode without medication (such as Tylenol or Motrin). These ailments are very contagious.   

By working together, we can help to prevent the spread of infection at school. If you have any concerns, always feel free to contact me in the health office by phone or by email.

A message from Dr. Leininger: Being in school every day means your child won’t miss out on learning. Try to schedule appointments and family vacations outside of school hours. If she asked to stay home “just because” remind her of what she’ll miss such as art class or STEAM projects. Explain that she can only stay home if she’s really sick. If school refusal becomes an issue be sure to let our guidance counselor know and we can work together to make coming to school easier.

Ask your child what they brought home. Take a look at some of the completed work to get an idea of how she’s doing. Ask about the best part of the day, the coolest thing that happened, or how were you helpful or kind today? The Ridgewood Public Schools are coming together to raise money to support The American Red Cross' Hurricane Dorian relief efforts. We will be sponsoring a coin drive from September 11 until Friday, September 20th. There will be a bin in the main office for anyone donating coins. All the schools are working together to help and support those in need. Thank you
