The flu season will be upon us soon. There may be confusion as to what the “flu” really means. Some may use the term to describe the common cold, vomiting and diarrhea (stomach bug), or most accurately, the viral respiratory infection caused by the influenza virus.
Infection with the influenza virus can lead to serious complications. The best protection against influenza is by getting your annual flu vaccination. Please contact your local pharmacy or health care provider to schedule a flu vaccination if you have not already done so.
We encourage our students, family members, and employees to monitor their health status and stay home and/or seek medical attention if feeling ill.
If your child is not feeling well, we ask that you follow the protocols below:
Check their temperature before taking any fever-reducing medication;
Keep them home if the temperature is 100(F) or higher;
Keep your child home until the fever is gone for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication; and
If there is vomiting or diarrhea, stay home until symptoms resolve; and
Notify the school of your child’s absence and inform the nurse of any specific diagnosis.
Practice proper hand hygiene:
Wash hands thoroughly or use hand sanatizer, especially after coughing or sneezing, before eating, and after being in public places or using a lavatory;
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth; and
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or into your elbow.
The rationale behind Project #MHSREADS is to model the critical importance of ongoing literacy throughout our lives and to demonstrate our commitment toward continued professional and academic development.
On our outdoor digital display board you will see a a daily announcement of the particular book titles our teachers, administrators, and staff are currently reading.
We, as the MHS Educational Community, are proud to share our love for reading to emphasize our commitment to ongoing literacy.
As parents we encourage you to model your love for literacy within your own homes as well.
Mahopac High School
STRONG SCHOOLS = STRONG COMMUNITIES
The Mahopac Central School District is working diligently on developing a tax-neutral capital project that provides strong and safe schools. Strong relationships between schools and community fosters strong students and families that can contribute to long-term community success. Communities that have strong, positive relationships with schools have a solid workforce, higher job satisfaction, improved housing options and a flourishing economy.
The bond supports an educational facility plan that serves as a clear reflection of our community’s commitment to high-quality schools, including security and safety initiatives, infrastructure needs, such as:
Site Improvements & Development
Renovating Libraries to Multimedia Centers
Music & Performance Upgrades
Athletic Fields & Facilities
Infrastructure & Energy Efficiency
“We are able to put forth a tax neutral capital project as a result of new debit replacing old debit being paid off. In other words, the capital project will not increase property taxes,” said Assistant Superintendent for Business Harvey Sotland.
The capital project will be the result of extensive research and planning by the District’s Administration and Building Committee, which is led by Sotland and Superintendent of Schools Anthony DiCarlo. The committee is comprised of Board of Education members, staff and administration representatives, and community members who have expertise in finance, construction, education and security. The committee is also supported by the architectural firm Tetra Tech Architects & Engineers and a construction manager.
“Together we will create scalable and cost-effective designs to provide for the best learning spaces for our students and staff. The bond will help meet the needs of today’s students and the students of the future by reinvesting in our schools and community,” DiCarlo said.
