Parents : We just received notification that a Southeast
Warren 8th grade student has been diagnosed with the Enterovirus
D68. This student was sent home from school on Tuesday, September
9th with cold symptoms. We then received notification from the student's
parents that the student was hospitalized the next day. Today, the
student is still hospitalized, but his illness is improving and
test results showed that he did have the Enterovirus 68.
Today, Friday, September 12th, an information
sheet from the Iowa Department of Public Health is going home
with students on the back of the K-6th newsletter and electronically
as well as being included as an attachment with the Jr/Sr High School
daily announcements for parents to read. This document addresses
symptoms and treatment of the Enterovirus D68 as well as providing
guidance for parents and also addresses prevention.
Teachers and staff will be extra diligent in observing students
who show signs of respiratory illness and referring them to the
nurse in all three centers. If your child is sick, please keep them
home from school until symptoms reside.
Please reinforce good hand washing with your children as hand sanitizers
are minimally effective against this virus.
If your child has cold-like symptoms and experience difficulty
breathing, please contact your health care provider right away.

Vocal Music Trip
On Spring Break of 2014, 49 of Southeast Warren's finest loaded
a charter bus to explore the birthplace of Rhythm and Blues, and
Country Music. We toured Graceland to trace the roots of Rock'n'Roll.
We visited Sun Studio, where it all began, and recorded at RCA Studio,
the same studio Elvis and all the great Nashville recorded at. We
performed at the Country Music Hall of Fame, attended a performance
at The Grand Old Opry and kicked up our heels at the Wildhorse Saloon.
More importantly, we discovered how much every form of music reflects
the culture from which it comes, and learned more than we ever thought
we could. We bonded as a group, and discovered how wonderful it
was to share this experience with each other. We made memories that
will last a lifetime! Thanks to everyone who helped us achieve this
