gear. Coats and snow gear of all shapes and sizes are
welcome (children’s coats are especially needed).
Bring your clean, reusable coats to the Luverne
Elementary School NOW through October 28th.
There will be a collection box located in the commons.

FLU VACCINATION CLINIC COMING
We will hold our annual Flu Vaccination Clinic on Friday,
October 28th. Forms and more information are being
sent home in this week’s Friday Folder. Please note
that this year we will only be offering the Flu Shot. NO
Flu Mist is available or be offered. These forms will need
to be completed and returned by Wednesday, October
19th. If you have any questions, you are encouraged to
contact Phil Paquette, our school nurse.
IS THIS YOURS???
Our “Lost and Found” has collected SEVERAL jackets,
sweatshirts and lunch bag items. In an effort to make
sure your child keeps any items that belong to him/her,
we are encouraging you to write a name on a tag or other
area so that if it is lost it can be returned.
FIRE PREVENTION WEEK
OCTOBER 9TH – 15TH
Next week is national Fire Prevention Week. Several of
our students will be learning about fire prevention
strategies and how to be safe at home and school. This
year we will be telling families, “Don’t wait! Check the
Date. Replace your Smoke Alarms Every 10 years”.
Smoke alarms save lives. The focus on smoke alarm
replacement comes as the result of a recent survey
conducted by NFPA, which showed that only a small
percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms
are or how often they need to be replaced.
DRESSING FOR THE WEATHER
We would like to remind parents that students should
come dressed to spend recess time outside each day.
This means sending your child in warm clothing if the
temperatures are predicted to be cold. Now is a good
time to make sure that you have warm clothing that
fits for the coming winter season.
DO WE HAVE YOUR NUMBER?
Please contact the elementary office if you have a
change of contact information so we may update our
records. This includes changes of address, phone
number, email addresses, cell phone numbers, and
emergency contact information. This information is
used for School Reach in the event of an early
dismissal/school closing, school related emergency
or for an illness to reach parents.
