Weekly Learning

 

Citizens in Ms. Breed-Parks' Blue Devil Civics class visited Maplewood City Hall and met with community leaders and civil servants in the council chamber. The visit launches a semester-long problem-based learning project answering the question, "How can Maplewood and Richmond Heights improve the lives of community members?" Mayor Nikaylan Knapper, City Manager Mike Reese, the fire chief, police chief, and two additional representatives from fire and police departments answered questions composed in advance by the students. Students learned the structure of city government, process of amending the code of ordinances, changes in crime and fire patterns in our area, and some of the current issues facing our community. Finally, all panelists answered questions about a day in the life of their chosen career. On Thursday, students will meet via Zoom with the City Manager of Richmond Heights.

Peanut Butter Allergy

 

We wanted to inform you that we have students in our school that have life-threatening food allergies. One student has an allergy to Peanuts/Tree Nuts. These foods, even in trace amounts, may cause a severe reaction (anaphylaxis) that can lead to death. The following symptoms may occur: hives, difficulty breathing, vomiting and diarrhea, swelling of the lips, mouth, and throat, itching and sneezing, loss of consciousness, and death due to shock. Even touching contaminated surfaces may cause a reaction.

 

School staff has been trained to recognize such a reaction and to administer medication (epinephrine) in an emergency.

 

Here are a few suggestions for you as parents:

 

  • Never take food allergies lightly; they can be serious and life-threatening.
  • Look for substitutes for peanut butter and other snacks that contain peanuts. Our school cafe uses sunflower butter and kids do not mind at all.
  • Ask your child’s friends what they are allergic to and help them to avoid it.
  • Tell your child, “DO NOT SHARE FOOD.”
  • Frequent hand washing reduces the spread of viruses during the school year and helps protect food-allergic students. Wash hands thoroughly after eating. Similarly, encourage good hygiene before and after-school. If your child had peanut butter for breakfast please have them wash their hands. Wash hands and surfaces before handling textbooks, computers, or school equipment.
  • Tell your child to get help from an adult immediately if a schoolmate has a reaction.

Early Dismissal Procedures

 

  • Please call or email Mrs. Jonas before coming to pick your student up for any appointments or early dismissals. The more notice we have the better we can cut your wait time down.
  • Email: tonya.jonas@mrhschools.net, OR Call: 314-644-4406
  • Please remind your student that they must come to the middle school office to check out before leaving campus. Students will exit the building from the high school doors that face the track.
