PROVEN STEPS TO A LONGER LIFE
For most people, better health can come with simple changes.  According to the American Cancer Society, about 1/3 of all cancer deaths (186,000) could be prevented if people were more active and ate better.  Parents can help their children avoid cancer as well by encouraging healthy habits from birth.  Though there is no way to prevent all cancers, experts agree that for most people a handful of small changes greatly increases the ods of living a longer, healthier life.

  • Avoid tobacco (Cigarette smoking causes 30% of all cancer deaths)
  • Maintain a healthy weight (being overweight increases the risk of healthy problems)
  • Avoid saturated fats (get no more than 30% of daily calories from fat)
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables (raises
  • Cut back on meat (if you must, poultry and fish are better choices)
  • Exercise 30 to 60 minutes a day
  • Use alcohol in moderation (no more than 1 to 2 drinks per day)
  • Stay out of the sun (use sunscreen that blocks UVA and UVB)
  • Get your vitamins (calcium and folic acid are important)
  • Wash hands and brush your teeth (key to infection control); USE SOAP (or carry instant hand sanitizer)
  • See your doctor regularly

Low Cost Health Insurance Available
There are affordable medical, dental, and vision coverage programs that can meet your child's health insurance needs. The Mentone Family Resource Center wants to help you find these programs. If your child or someone you know is uninsured, please call Hilda in the Healthy Start Office for information or call toll free 1-800-880-5305 to find out about "Healthy Families" & "Medi-Cal for Families" health care coverage. Healthy kids are healthy learners!
TOO SICK FOR SCHOOL?
The following guidelines can help you make that tough morning decision on whether to attend school or not:

Don't keep a child home for sniffles, a runny nose, or a mild cough without a fever. Also, vague complaints of aches, pains or fatigue or a single episode of diarrhea or vomiting without symptoms are not good excuses for missing school.

Keep a child home when (s)he has any of the following: fever of 100+; persistent vomiting or diarrhea; undiagnosed rashes; pinkeye; strep throat; scabies or head lice; impetigo; or chickenpox.

Please contact our school office or Family Resource Center if you have any questions about issues pertaining to student illness and attendance.
