Ebola Update #3

A Message for Parents Regarding Ebola

Akron, Ohio. At this time based on the information collected by Summit County Public
Health there is no known threat to the public’s health. Summit County Public Health is
not advocating for the closure of schools and the cancellation of events. However,
Summit County Public Health supports Akron Public Schools and their decision based
on their assessment of the situation.

Summit County Public Health has released a list of the top things parents need to know
about Ebola.

1. Your child is not at risk while attending school in Summit County
. A risk for
Ebola only comes when you come into close contact with a person suffering from
Ebola. The health care worker who passed through Summit County did not visit any
county schools.

2. Being near someone who is sick with Ebola doesn't mean you'll get infected.
disease isn't contagious like the flu or common cold. You have to be in contact with a
patient's body fluids or blood, and you have to have a break in your skin or have the
fluids touch your eyes, mouth or nose.

3. Ebola does not live long on surfaces or outside someone's body.
Soaps, detergents
and hand sanitizers are effective at killing the virus. Keeping your area clean and
washing your hands will help prevent infections.

4. You and your children are really only at risk if you have traveled to West
Africa, where Ebola is currently spreading.

5. There are currently no known cases of Ebola in Summit County or Ohio.

Ebola Update #1

Akron, Ohio. At this time based on the information collected by Summit County Public Health, there is no known threat to the public’s health and therefore no reason to close schools or cancel events at this time. After preliminary investigation is appears as though the healthcare worker who had Ebola had limited social contacts outside of a small number of friends and family. Secondly, Summit County Public Health has not identified any public events or large public gatherings attended by the affected health care worker in Summit County or any surrounding counties. For further information, Summit County Public Health has established an information line at 330-926-3939. This local Ebola information line will be staffed from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. until further notice.

News from our School Nurses

In light of Ebola being on the local news with a connection to Akron, we would like you to know of the number to call if you have questions. Please call the Call Center at Summit County Public Health - 330-926-3939. The Call Center will be taking calls until 9:00 pm on October 15 and again the days after.
Elementary School Day Includes Computer Instruction

Ms. Lucas teaches kindergarteners the “peace sign” and the “number 1 sign” so they can easily learn the control-alt-delete command to sign in to their computers.

Students use hand sanitizer before signing on to their computers. This helps to keep BCSD computer labs totally virus free.

Elementary students in Barberton City Schools receive technology instruction from teachers Miss Laura Lucas at East and Mrs. Denise Recob at West. The technology curriculum provides each grade level the chance to participate in a series of computer safety activities tailored to their specific grade level. All grades learn about parts of the computer and their functions, as well as a little bit of tech history. A hands-on approach teaches students why and how technology is helpful and useful. Throughout the year, each grade level will also build up tech knowledge (word processing, emailing, use of digital images, internet research, etc.). Students work throughout the year to complete a final project that increases their skills and strengthens their understanding of concepts taught in their classrooms:

Kindergarten: A collaborative alphabet book.
First Grade: A written piece with graphic illustrations, varied font and other text features.
Second Grade: An online presentation of an animal research project.
Third Grade: An online Barberton history presentation.
Fourth Grade: An online presentation of an Ohio inventor research project.
