*********************************
Message from Linda Wiltfong, Superintendent
Parents have been asking if we will have to add on days to the end of the school year.  Because we started a week earlier than many other school corporations, we have not run out of days.  We have ONE day that we can take off before we get into the problem of adding on additional days or additional times to the remaining days scheduled. 

My biggest concern was the instructional time that was lost prior to the students taking ISTEP+, IREAD - 3, and the End of Course Assessments (ECAs).  These are all state tests that, by law, students have to take.  IREAD - 3 and ECAs have negative consequences for students when they don't pass.  As of today, our students have lost 74 hours of instruction due to the weather.  That is a huge loss of instructional time for students.  We all know that the more we practice anything, the better we are able to perform the skill.  The same holds true with instruction.  The more students practice skills or test taking strategies, the more proficient they become.

When I sent out the survey to parents, I was trying to get more time for our students to practice skills and provide additional padding to our 180 days.  Keep your fingers crossed that we don't have to take any more days off.  Hopefully, Mother Nature is planning a calmer spring for us!  

As of today, June 5th will be the last student day and June 8th will be Graduation Day.

Free heart screenings offered to student athletes

 

IU Health La Porte Hospital focuses on prevention, education
during National Sudden Cardiac Awareness Month

In recognition of National Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Month in October, Indiana University Health La Porte Hospital is offering free heart screenings to student athletes on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Screenings are offered to area high school students, ages 15 and older, on:

  • Thursday, Oct. 17 from 3 pm to 7 pm
  • Tuesday, Oct 22 from 4 pm to 8 pm
  • Thursday, Oct. 24 from 4 pm to 8 pm
  • Tuesday, Oct 29 from 4 pm to 8 pm
  • Saturday, Nov. 2 from 8 am to noon (all Central times)

A limited number of free screenings will be performed at the IU Health La Porte Heart & Vascular Center, 901 E. Lincolnway, Ste. 102, in La Porte. Pre-registration is required by calling 219.326.2309. In addition, students must have signed parental consent and not be under the care of a physician for any cardiac-related conditions.

Student athletes will be screened with an electrocardiogram and limited echocardiogram. The specialized tests, which take about 15 minutes, help identify any possible structural abnormalities within the cardiovascular system that may lead to premature cardiac arrest, screening organizers said.

“Recent events have brought the issue of Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) to the forefront,” IU Health La Porte Hospital Director of Cardiovascular Services, Mary Drewes, MSN, BSN, RN, said. “The tragic loss of one of our community’s student athletes has prompted many questions, fears and a sense of helplessness. Our cardiologists, in collaboration with our team in Cardiovascular Services, look forward to providing these screenings. We are committed to meeting the needs of our community as a whole.”

For those unable to attend the free screenings, the “Heart Cart for High Schools” program offers similar screenings through the hospital’s Heart Cart Mobile Screening Unit in partnership with The Foundation, in support of IU Health La Porte Hospital. “Heart Cart for High Schools” screenings are offered at a discounted rate of $50. Students will be screened for cholesterol, blood sugar, electrocardiogram and limited echocardiogram. For more information or to schedule, call 219.326.2626 or toll-free 800.235.6204, ext. 2626.
