Dear Parents and Guardians:

Tyler ISD is sad to report that a student at Jack Elementary has passed away due to an influenza associated death. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family as they go through this difficult time.

The child had underlying medical conditions and significant respiratory issues. The case has been confirmed as H1N1. We are working with local and state health officials to monitor the situation and at this time, schools will remain open and operate normally.

The best way to reduce the spread of H1N1 or any other virus is to practice good hygiene, and we encourage you to teach your children to wash their hands often, keep their hands away from their eyes, nose, and mouth, and cover coughs and sneezes with their sleeve or a tissue. For more prevention tips, visit www.texasflu.org or www.tylerisd.org.

Please keep your child home from school if he or she shows any flu symptoms, including fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headaches, chills, and fatigue, and contact your health care provider and the school immediately.

Students who are ill should stay home until at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever, or signs of a fever, without the use of fever-reducing medicines.

Let me assure you that the health and well being of our students is my top priority, and we are doing everything possible to address the situation. As a precaution, since the start of school, Tyler ISD has implemented aggressive sanitation measures at all campuses. District staff members are frequently disinfecting common areas, such as hallways, lockers, door knobs, and hand rails with a germicidal. As another precaution, Tyler ISD is also using this same germicidal spray to disinfect the interior of the school buses on a daily basis.

Please feel free to contact your principal if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,
Randy Reid, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools

Estimados Padres y Guardianes:

Tyler ISD tristemente reporta que un estudiante de Jack falleció a causa de enfermedad relacionada con influenza. Nuestros pensamientos y oraciones están con la familia mientras ellos pasan este momento tan difícil.

El niño tenía ciertas condiciones médicas y problemas significantes con la respiración. El caso se ha confirmado como H1N1. Estamos trabajando con oficiales local y estatal es de salud para monitorear esta situación, por el momento, la escuela se mantendrá abierta y seguirá su horario normal.

La mejor manera de reducir la esparcían de H1N1 y cualquier virus es la práctica de buen higiene, y nosotros le animamos que le enseñe a su hijo/a a lavarse frecuentemente las manos, mantener sus manos alejadas de sus ojos, nariz, y boca y cubran estornudos y toz con su manga o servilleta. Para tips de prevención, visite www.texasflu.org o www.tylerisd.org.

Por favor mantenga su hijo/a en casa si muestra cualquier síntoma de gripe, incluyendo fiebre, toz, dolor de garganta, dolor en el cuerpo, dolor de cabeza, escalo fio, y comunicase con su proveedor de cuidado de salud y la escuela inmediatamente.

Estudiantes que se enferman deben quedarse en casa por lo menos 24 después de que no tengan fiebre o señales de fiebre, sin usar medicamentos para reducir fiebre.

Déjame asegurarle que la salud y el bienestar de nuestros alumnos es nuestra primera prioridad y estamos haciendo todo lo posible para atender esta situación. Como precaución, desde el comienzo del año escolar, Tyler ISD ha implementado medidas de limpieza agresiva en todas las escuelas. El personal del distrito frecuentemente desinfecta áreas comunes, como son los pasillos, lockers, agarraderas de las puertas, y los raíles de escalones con un desinfectante de gérmenes. Otra precaución es que, Tyler ISD está usando este mismo desinfectante de gérmenes en el interior de los autobuses diariamente.
Si tiene preguntas adicionales, favor de comunicarse con el director de su escuela.

Sinceramente,
Randy Reid, Ed.D.
Superintendente de Escuelas

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut. Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
