September 2017 – Welcome back to school!

·      While it may feel like summer is over, that doesn’t mean the sunshine has left. The sunshine brings UV rays which can cause harm to our skin. Using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 on any exposed skin can help keep you safe. It’s also a good idea to wear a hat when out in the sun to keep your face and neck protected. Remember – no matter how hot or cool it is outside, there are still UV rays!
·      Keep stress levels down by staying ahead of schedule. School work, tests, and even friend and family requests can add up quickly and cause stress in children. Help teach kids to plan ahead for their week to avoid feeling stressed at the last minute. Create a weekly “agenda” that shows their school work, sports, and other activities so it’s easy to see how time needs to be managed. Teaching children these skills will help them throughout life.
·      Children learn and perform better at school when they eat a healthy breakfast and lunch. Here are some tips for packing a healthy lunch:
-    Change it up from sandwiches by using a wide mouth thermos to give them leftover of chili, soup, pasta, or stew.
-    Make small wraps with a protein, vegetables, and salad dressing, or make mini-pizzas on an English muffin.
-    Lunchables are not healthy. Make your own version with finger foods like crackers and cheese, small pieces of fruit, and meat cut into small circles and squares.
-    Instead of bread, use small pita pockets, dinner rolls, breadsticks, or round Melba toast.
Vaccines keep our children and community healthy! The Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA) R.S.O. 1990 is a law in Ontario that makes sure all school-aged students are protected from avoidable diseases. The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit is working with you, your school board, and community healthcare providers to make sure that your child’s permanent immunization record is up-to-date. Learn more about how you can update your child’s immunization record at https://www.wechu.org/immunization-record/school-immunization-qa
