KES Collects More Than 1,000 Pounds of Food

Katonah Elementary School families proved their generosity and holiday spirit by collectively donating 1,037 pounds of food as part of the school’s Holiday Share Food Drive this year.

Sponsored by the PTO and led by chairs Kim Moskowitz and Liz Hill, the food drive drop-off at the Community Center of Northern Westchester in Katonah on Nov. 14 was a huge success.

It is that chilly time of year again!

Let us quickly review our school rules for recess attire. As stated in the family handbook, please be sure your child comes to school in clothing that is appropriate for outdoor play.

If the temperature including the wind chill is below forty degrees, students should be prepared to play outside wearing the following:
• Warm coats
• Long pants ! (no more shorts)

On snowy days in order to play in the snow (including sledding) students will also need:
• Snow pants
• Boots
• Hats
• Gloves

Please be aware that if a student is not dressed appropriately, he or she will be unable to attend outdoor activities (including recess). If the temperature including the wind chill falls below twenty degrees, the students will stay inside for recess. Dr. Louis A. Corsaro, the school district physician, has also advised us in these matters.

Thank you for preparing your child with appropriate outdoor attire!


From the Nurse’s Offices of KLSD

EV-D68 is causing cases of severe respiratory (breathing) illness among children and other individuals. Such illness has sometimes been resulting in hospitalization, especially among children with asthma.

The New York State Department of Health is advising parents and health care providers to be aware of the signs and symptoms of enterovirus EV-D68, a serious respiratory illness which has now been confirmed in more than a dozen children in New York State.

Symptoms to Look For:
runny nose
body aches

How It Is Spread
Enteroviruses are transmitted through close contact with a person who has the virus, or by touching objects or surfaces that have the virus on them and then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes.

What You Can Do Protect Yourself
It is important to protect yourself and others reminding your children to:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid kissing, hugging, and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who are sick.
  • Disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as toys and doorknobs, especially if
    someone is sick.
  • Use the same precautions you would use to prevent the spread of influenza (flu).

These prevention steps are especially important for individuals or persons with family members who are infants, or who have chronic health conditions or compromised immune systems.

What to Do If Your Child Feels Ill

If your child is sick with a runny nose, cough, fever, or aches which are signs of an upper respiratory infection, do not send your child to school. Allow them to rest and recover at home. Contact your medical provider immediately if your child becomes seriously ill.
