A Message from the CLHS Nurse, Scott Pratt

There is an increase in the number of students exhibiting Influenza Like Symptoms (ILS) at CLHS. It is important that students who have a temperature above 100° stay home until fever free for 24 hours. If your student, or any other family member, is having ILS you may want to contact your physician about influenza testing and possible treatment. If you did not receive an influenza vaccine this season the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that it is not too late to obtain vaccination protection.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email me at scpratt@ccisd or call me at 281-284-1913. Helpful website links below:

Mission Accomplished

Falcon dad and Space Station Commander Col. Shane Kimbrough took a piece of CLHS Falcon history into space and tweeted the above picture last week. The soccer ball was signed by members of the CLHS girls and boys soccer team in 1986 and was carried onboard the last flight of the Space Shuttle Challenger by another Falcon dad - Col. Ellison Onizuka. Col. Onizuka's daughter Janelle was a member of the soccer team. After the tragic loss of Challenger and her crew, the ball was recovered and returned to CLHS. Now, thanks to Col. Kimbrough the Lake Soccer Ball is finally in space!

"The soccer ball in many ways has continued the mission my father embarked upon so many years ago. It has continued to travel and explore space while inspiring so many through its history." ~ Janelle Onizuka-Gillian, Falcon Mom
