#DYK too much screen time has been linked to:

·      Obesity.

·      Insufficient sleep

·      Behavior problems.

·      Delays in skill development.

Try one of these activities instead ????

Looking for some tips to reduce screen time in your home?

·      Set goals to reduce your kids’ screen time.

·      Create phone-free zones in the home – like family mealtimes!

·      Get outside. 

Put down the device and pick up a book! Reading and being read to is great for your child’s brain development. Children enrolled in @ImaginationOhio receive one free book each month until their 5th birthday!

Kids learn best from watching you! Set a good example by limiting the amount of time you spend on your phone or in front of the TV around them. 

The quality of the media your child is exposed to is more important than the type of technology or amount of time spent. Here are some tips to ensure quality screen time:

·      Preview programs before letting your child view or play with them.

·      Seek interactive options.

·      Interact with your child while watching the programming. 

Make mealtime family time! Research shows families who eat together tend to eat more nutritious meals. Try to schedule 2-3 family meals per week.

#Screentime tip: Avoid using electronic devices as a reward or punishment. This makes screens seem more important to kids. 

Though winter days are shorter and colder, there are still ways to keep your kids moving and minimize screen time. Here are some ideas:

·      Have a dance party.

·      Break out your favorite books.

·      Get active when you do have screen time.

#DYK kids should have 2 hours or less of screen time each day? This can be hard during winter weather, but breaking physical activity into 15-20-minute-increments can help!



February is National Children’s Dental Health Month! #DYK cavities are the most common chronic disease of childhood? Learn tips how to prevent them and protect your child’s teeth here:

Oral hygiene begins before the first tooth comes in! Your kids can start seeing the dentist once their first tooth comes in. A dental hygienist or dentist can show you the best way to clean your child’s teeth and prevent cavities.

Immunization Summary for School Attendance in Ohio

Growing up with Vaccines

All incoming Kindergarteners, 7th and 12th graders must provide an updated immunization record to the school nurse. This is due to the fact that there are mandatory shots at these times.

7th grade:

Effective 2012-2013, 1 dose of Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis, adolescent vaccine) This dose is intended to be administered as a BOOSTER dose for students who have completed the required doses of the initial series of DTap/DT/Td vaccine.

Effective 2016-2017, 1 dose of Meningococcal  shall be required PRIOR TO ENTERING THE SEVENTH (7TH) GRADE. 

12th grade:

All incoming 12th, grade students are required to show proof of having received the 2 doses of the Meningococcal vaccine by the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year. This is Meningococcal A not Meningococcal B.

Immunizations are required by Section 3313.671 and 3701.13 of the Ohio Revised Code.  Proof of complete immunizations is required within 14 days after enrollment in school or child is excluded from school until the shots or an appointment date is on file with the nurse.  



Stay Healthy


Illnesses are most contagious right before and during a fever. They spread easily to others.


FEVER is defined as having a temperature of 100  or higher (American Academy of Pediatrics). 


Oak Hills Local School District has a policy that a student must be free of a fever (100) and without the use of fever reducing medicines for 24 hours BEFORE they can return to school. Students must also be 24 hours vomit free BEFORE returning to school. This Policy protects everyone in the building from spreading illness and preventing others from getting sick. 


Since the return of school leads to an increase in illnesses. We are asking each parent to assess your child each morning before school. IF they are ill please keep them home.


  1. Take their temperature
  2. Monitor for symptoms such as:
    Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    Fever or chills
    Muscle or body aches
    New loss of taste or smell
    Sore throat
    Congestion or runny nose
    Nausea or vomiting
    Illness numbers will increase as the students return to school. We know this is challenging since Covid symptoms are so similar to other colds and viruses.  We all need to work together to keep the spread of Covid 19 and other contagious illnesses down as we return to school.
    Thanks for your support.
    Ways to prevent the spread of germs:


1. Wash hands vigorously with soap and water  for 20 seconds, or use hand sanitizer frequently


( if a sink is not available), especially after coughing, sneezing or rubbing your nose.


Great Hand Washing Video !


2. Encourage coughing into your elbow or cover your cough.


3. Clean frequently touched surfaces and shared items daily.  Keep cleaning supplies out of reach of children.
