Dear Parents,
As we are in the height of cold and flu season, I want to ensure your children stay healthy. It is important to remember that “hand washing is the single most important means of preventing the spread of infection”, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Childhood illnesses are spread easily when children are in close contact in the school setting. Any of these signs and symptoms might indicate an infections condition: Fever (temp >100), Chills, Cough, Irritability, Mouth Sores, Rash, Extreme Sleepiness, Red and/or Draining Eyes, Yellow/Green Nasal Drainage, Vomiting, Diarrhea.

Please keep your child home if they should have any symptoms of an illness or communicable disease.

Coppell ISD Health Attendance Guidelines:With the temperature changes please remember to send a jacket and gloves with your learner. For more information regarding Coppell ISD Weather Policy Please feel free to call us if we can answer any questions or assist you in any way. We appreciate your cooperation in helping keep Lee Learners Healthy!

Thank you,

Appraisers needed for Destination Imagination Program
Published: Sun, Dec 10, 2017, 06:30PM CST

A big thank you to Mrs Kastrounis for her continued support and encouragement of Destination Imagination program at Lee. We have 9 Teams from Lee elementary taking part in Regional Tournament in February.

As it is a completely voluntary run program, each team need to have at least one Appraiser for the Tournament.

Who is an Appraiser?
Appraisers are valued members of the tournament “staff” and we take good care of them. Throughout the day we feed them breakfast, lunch, snacks and cold drinks and give them breaks and a very cool DI t-shirt.

Appraiser Qualifications:
1. Must be at least 18 years old and no longer enrolled in high school. We will accept high school seniors who have participated in DI for a number of years.
2. May not appraise the performance of a team which includes his/her own family member. Exception:
Rising Stars appraisers may appraise their own family members on Rising Stars teams ONLY, since it is non-competitive.
3. May not appraise the performance of a team for which he/she has served as a Team Manager.
4. Must attend a half-day Appraiser Training workshop.
5. Does not need to have prior DI experience or training.

Appraiser Roles:
For Team Challenges, a typical Appraisal Team consists of a least 7-11 people per site, including scoring appraisers and support officials (Organizer, Timekeeper/Announcer). For Instant Challenges, a typical Appraisal Team consists of 4 people per site, all of whom score.

Training:
All appraisers must attend a half day of training on February 3 (8:30am-12:30pm). Location is The Education Services Division Center at 1820 Pearl St., Carrollton, 75006. Alternate dates in adjacent regions may be available if an appraiser isn’t available on Feb. 3.

Tournament:
The TVNC DI Regional Tournament will be held on February 24, at Turner HS in Carrollton. Most appraisers will have a long day with a typical schedule of 7:00 am until 5 pm. Some challenges will have a shorter time commitment. Actual times vary by challenge and will be given to you after the schedule is complete.

If you are interested in volunteering as an Appraiser please contact Ratna at manjusharatna@yahoo.com.
