Magdalen Awarded TWO Diocesan Honors

It was an exciting morning at Magdalen Catholic School as we kicked off Catholic Schools Week with special announcements at Mass.  Magdalen received TWO Diocesan awards: The St. Maximilian Kolbe Award for being a school community where faith is first and foremost AND Banner School 2014-2015. Congratulations to the entire Magdalen community on these awards!  Mr. Barr and I would like to thank all of our Pastoral and church staff, School staff and faculty, our families, students, and parishioners for their unwavering support of Catholic education!

God Bless!

A Message from Nurse Carla

Flu season is upon us.  The CDC has declared this a flu epidemic. The flu vaccine is not as effective and is only providing partial protection against this strain of the virus. Kansas City is reporting its most widespread flu season in years.  We all know that means its headed our way.  To prepare for the flu season I am sending out some important facts and reminders about the flu.  Extra attention should be given when wiping off door handles and water fountains.   The best sources for spreading infection are our hands.  Let’s keep our kids healthy. 

Important Flu Tips:

***Wash your hands with warm water and soap.  Wash frequently.

***Cough into your elbow not on your hands. 

***Use hand sanitizer when washing is not an option.

***If you’re running a fever do not come to school.  Do not medicate the fever and then come to school.  You can expose many people to the flu.

***Stay home and rest.

***Drink plenty (8-10 8 oz. glasses) of non-caffeinated fluids.

Flu symptoms:

Cold, cough, fever, chills, dizziness, vomiting

If you have been exposed to the flu and start having these symptoms, visit your doctor as soon as possible.
