A Note from the Nurse

Dear Parents:

Back to school season coincides with an increase in the viruses that cause fever, vomiting, diarrhea and breathing problems. These include noroviruses ("stomach flu"), influenza and enteroviruses (EV-D68 quickly spreads among children and can cause serious respiratory illness).

Simple actions can help stop viruses from spreading:

Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds.
Cover cough and sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve.
Disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
Avoid sharing eating utensils and cups.
Children with fever, vomiting or diarrhea should stay home until the symptoms are gone (for 24 hours without medication) or until a doctor says it's okay to return.
Get vaccinated against the flu (getting infected with
both EV-D68 and influenza at the same time could lead to severe illness).

NYC DOH now requires influenza vaccination for all Nursery and Pre-K children.

Please return all medical forms issued to your child by a school nurse in September ASAP. All immunizations are mandated by law.

Band Sign-Up

There is still time to sign up for band if you have not already. Please bring your form in as soon as possible. Stop by the office if you need a new form.

Band will be every Thursday unless otherwise notifed. Don't forget to bring your instrument.

Weekly Reminders

Note to all parents and students: Please be respectful of our neighbors!

-There have been some issues regarding our neighbors. We have received calls asking that we refrain from blocking driveways, sitting on steps, dropping garbage on the sidewalk or street, etc. Please be mindful of our community and taking care of the people and places around us.

-The website is running more smoothly now; however, we are aware that some are still having issues. They are being worked on and in some cases may take a little time to resolve. Thank you for your patience with this slightly bumpy start.

Website update

Monday, September 8, 2014

The website is mostly up and running. We are aware that there are still glitches and rest assured that every issue you report to us or to the teacher is passed along immediately to the team working on the site.

Please be aware that the website should never replace a student writing down homework in class, as they are given ample time to do. It is essential to build responsibility that they are held accountable for this everyday task.

If you continue to have problems, please go to the top right corner of the website, click on log in/register and click on the newly added HELP button. Type in information as instructed and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you for your continued patience and support.

School Handbook

Due to technical difficulties (a stubborn copier!) not all classes were able to receive their paper copies of the handbook today. However, you can still view the handbook by going to the "Parents" button on the top of this page, and clicking on "Parent/Student Handbook". Thank you.

Website Registration

Please re-register on this new site!

Parents and students, if you have not registered on this new site olgbk.org, please take a moment and do that today. Use the tab in the upper right hand corner to begin. You need to do this even if you were already registered on the old site. Thank you.

Our website is under construction!

Please be patient as we improve our web presence to be bigger and better. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please give us a call in the office at 718-375-2081!

Welcome Back to School!
