"Flu season is just
around the corner in Colorado! There is no way to predict in advance how severe
flu activity will be so prevention is the best strategy to stay healthy. The
single best way to avoid getting influenza is to get vaccinated each year.
Annual influenza vaccination is recommended for all persons aged 6 months and
older, who do not have a contraindication to the vaccine. Most health insurance
companies (including Medicaid) cover the cost of getting a flu vaccine so
families with health insurance can go to your in-network health care provider
to receive a vaccine at no cost. Many pharmacies will bill your insurance
and not charge a fee for flu vaccine (check with your local pharmacy). If you
are uninsured, or your insurance won't cover vaccines, or you have Medicaid or
Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+), you can call Tri-County Health Department at
303-451-0123 to be vaccinated in one of their clinics. You can also visit http://flushot.healthmap.org/ to find flu shot clinics near you."
NJHS will be holding their annual food
drive October 7th - October 31! This year, the group will
focus and ask for students to bring in canned soups for our food pantry.
One can of soup can feed two to three family members. What a quick way to
make sure that everyone gets some nourishment for the day! Please have
your student take the canned soups in to their first period teacher. NJHS
members will collect and count all foods to inventory for the school's food
a separate effort, NJHS members will also be asking for donations of granola
bars, Capri suns, and bottled water to help the homeless in the Denver
area. In partnership with Sounds of Joy, a music organization in the
Commerce City area, all of these items will be packed to give to area homeless
folks in the next few weeks. Please send these items to your first period
class October 7th - October 31st.
In an effort to try to continue to implement the use of ID's, we are going to
another method. Due to the high volume of students that need a temporary
ID, we will now be issuing colored wrist bands according to their grade level
which will be monitored more closely. If your student forgets their ID
one time in a week, they will be issued a wrist band with no consequence. The 2nd
time in a week, they will be given a wrist band and will have to serve a lunch
detention as well as contact home to notify their guardian. The 3rd time in a
week, they will have to purchase a new ID and will receive 2 days of lunch
detention as well as contact their guardian.
will be sending TCAP Student performance reports with your student on
Friday October 3rd. If you did not attend conferences Please check with
your student to receive this information. If you have any questions
please call the office.

price will be going up October 12th.
we come to the end of September and the end of Attendance Awareness month we
would like to continue the momentum that is moving Stuart Middle School's
attendance percentage in a positive direction. To help drive the upward
trend and to reward our students who come to school on time and ready to learn
all day every day, I will be selecting one male and one female student who have
perfect attendance for the school week of 9/29-10/3. Each of those
students will be allowed to select a prize from the Liaison Office.
Options include: a Denver Nuggets basketball, water bottles, head phones, a
locker sized dry erase board and a scented lotion. The remaining prizes
will be given to a randomly selected student in a classroom with perfect
attendance on Thursday October 9th. Perfect attendance means
no absences or tardies all week, excused or otherwise. Contact Gabe
Gallawa if you have questions.
