The Little Hawkeye Conference meet will be held at Knox- ville High School Satur- day, Jan. 30. PBS By Tyler Hirl (Joni Rench's Lakewood class) PBS stands for Positive Behavior Support. It's a system that is run by the two R'S and one S-Respect, Responsibility and Safety. Respect stands for being nice to your teachers and peers. Responsibility stands for making sure you finish your homework and bring it back to school and stuff like that. Safety stands for not running in the hall and acting safely. Now that you know that, there is a reward for acting the right way. There are reward coupons called Caught Being Goods. You get these when you follow the rules of Respect, Re- sponsibility and Safety. Usually the students save these up to use on raffles to win things. We have a drawing each week for students to use their Caught Being Goods. They can win things from get- ting into basketball and football games, getting popcorn on popcorn day, or even front row seats during an assembly. Stu- dents can also buy items at our Friday store using Caught Being Goods. These rules also give kids an idea Of how to act when they are out of school. For respect, they could bring food to a homeless shelter. For re- sponsibility, they could get trash bins every Wednes- day from the curb. For safety, they could wear their helmet when they bike in the neighborhood. If you're driving around the neighborhood, you should see these citizens using Respect, Responsi- bility and Safety.

Here are some of the essentials you need to know to make that work on behalf of your child: Develop your own school management plan. Each medical issue carries with it its own set of "manage- ment" needs. For example, if your child has diabetes, you will need to outline your child's insulin schedule, eating plan, target range and testing times, as well as how to recognize and treat blood sugar crises. The same type of detailed information-what personnel need to look for, what should be done, what follow-up is needed-should be completed for every health issue, from epilepsy to asthma. Know whom to tell. Clearly, the school nurse and classroom teacher need to be aware of your child's spe- cific medical needs. Depending on your child's condi- tion, other staff, including cafeteria workers, coaches and playground supervisors, may also need to be kept in the loop so they can properly respond to a situation or help prevent one from occurring. Keep up-to-date. Make sure that the medical infor- mation on file at your child's school is up-to-date. En- sure that all medical supplies needed are on-hand, both for routine monitoring (e.g., for diabetes) or emergency care (e.g., inhalers or Epi-pens). In addition, work with the school nurse to make sure you are kept informed, well in advance, if any supplies need restocking. Create an 504. The same planning used for accom- modating children with disabilities can be applied to children with medical issues. Work with the school to create a written plan, detailing the school's role in your child's care, noting any special accommodations the school may need to make. Get academic support: Make sure that teachers understand that your child may occa- sionally need to miss class because of his or her condi- tion. Discuss how your child will make up for missed work. How to deal with curious classmates. Children are curious about anything that is oot of the Ordinary-and, when your child has a health issue, it is very likely that classmates will sense it. Role-play with your child to help him or her anticipate the types of questions others might ask and how best to answer them. It is not contagious. Once children know that your child didn't "catch" his or her condition, that it's under control and that there's no way it can be passed on to other children, the topic usually loses its interest, al- lowing your child to blend back in with classmates. Turn to the. experts. Virtually every childhood con- dition or disease has an excellent advocacy organiza- tion, such as the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation or Epi- lepsy Foundation, which offers educational materials targeted to school-age children. If you feel it would be heIpful to provide classmates with additional informa- tion, contact the organization and request materials to share with the class. Be available. Be sure that the school nurse and teacher have your cell phone, home phone, or other con- tact information available, as well as the numbers of others who are qualified to act on your behalf in the case of an emergency. Do not panic. It ~:an be difficult to know that your child is in school all day-away from you and others who may monitor his or her condition closely. Understand Concluded p. 9
