A Message from Principal Isis Contreras


Dear Roosevelt Parents,
 
The year’s end always brings with it a tremendous sense of accomplishment. So many things have been accomplished this year!  I am so proud of our students and their desire to excel. To our 6th graders – congratulations on your achievements!! The Roosevelt staff wishes you all the best as you move to your new middle school.  We hope that each of you have gained a firm foundation for your education while at Roosevelt. For those families who will be returning in August, school will begin on Monday, September 8th. On behalf of the teachers and staff, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a safe and happy summer!
 
Keep your family safe this summer by following these tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).  
 

BICYCLE SAFETY
 
  • Your child needs to wear a helmet on every bike ride, no matter how short or how close to home. Set the example: Whenever you ride, put on your helmet.
  • A helmet should be worn so that it is level on the head and covers the forehead, not tipped forward or backwards. The strap should be securely fastened with about 2 fingers able to fit between chin and strap. The helmet should be snug on the head, but not overly tight. If needed, the helmet’s sizing pads can help improve the fit.
PLAYGROUND SAFETY
 
  • The playground should have safety-tested mats or loose-fill materials (shredded rubber, sand, wood chips, or bark) maintained to a depth of at least 9 inches. Equipment should be carefully maintained. Open “S” hooks or protruding bolt ends can be hazardous.
  • Never attach – or allow children to attach – ropes, jump ropes, leashes, or similar items to play equipment; children can strangle on these.
  • Make sure your children remove helmets and anything looped around their necks.
  • Do not allow children to play barefoot on the playground.
BUG SAFETY
 
  • Don’t use scented soaps, perfumes or hair sprays on your child.
  • To remove a visible stinger from skin, gently back it out by scraping it horizontally with a credit card or your fingernail
  • The current AAP and CDC recommendation for children older than 2 months of age is to use 10% to 30% DEET. DEET should not be used on children younger than 2 months of age.
FIREWORKS SAFETY
 
  • Fireworks can result in severe burns, scars and disfigurement that can last a lifetime. Even sparklers can reach temperatures above 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, and can burn users and bystanders. Families should attend community fireworks displays rather than using fireworks at home.
 
Thank you for all you do to keep your child safe!  Enjoy a wonderful summer with your family.
 
Best,
Isis Contreras
