  • Last week over 500 people registered for our FREE webinar: 

    "Learn the 30+ bad apps your students should avoid"

    This free webinar will walk you through all of the bad apps we suggest your students should not use. 
     
    The latest social media app guide we have reviewed is GroupMe (and we don't like it). 
     

    thumbs-down Gather app


    GroupMe App (Owned by Microsoft)
    Age: 13+
    GroupMe is a messaging app where users can send group or private messages from their computer or phone using WiFi. Since activity from the GroupMe app doesn’t show up on their parents’ phone bill, some students use the app to hide their messaging activity. The app has built-in features that allow users to search the web directly from the app. There is no way to moderate or filter that content. Watch our GroupMe App video.
     
     

    thumbs-down IMVU app


    IMVU App
    Age: 17+
    IMVU is an app where users create custom avatars and use them to chat with strangers in random chats or 3D chat rooms. This app can be used by predators to try and get victims to share their phone number, send photos, and video chat off of the app. Content on IMVU is inappropriate for teens and avatars can be used to simulate explicit activities. Watch our IMVU App video.

    thumbs-down Gather app


    Gather App
    Age: 13+
    The Gather app is an event planning app that makes it easy for users to create and share real life events. Invitations can be sent to anyone in a user’s phone contacts, even if they don’t have the app. The app uses a method of spamming that creates false credibility since users think their friends are suggesting they use the app. Watch our Gather App video.
     

    thumbs-down tbh app icon logo


    tbh App (Owned by Facebook)
    Age: 12+
    TBH stands for “to be honest”, and the tbh app is a social networking platform where users anonymously answer questions/polls about their classmates. Even though the questions/polls are approved by the developers, tbh can still promote bullying and make it easier for students to become a target. Watch our tbh App video.

    LHS STUDENT SELECTED FOR SLE AT WEST POINT

     

    LaBelle High School's John Donges was selected to attend the Summer Leaders Experience at the U.S. Military Academy. The camp provides attendees with first hand knowledge of life at West Point. John's invitation to the prestigious summer camp also denotes mastery of the first hurdle towards acceptance into the Academy. The next step towards acceptance would be obtaining a nomination from a congressman or senator from our area. John maintains a 4.5 grade point average along with participating in dual enrolled classes at SWF State.  John would be the fourth LaBelle High School student in the past seven years to be accepted to the Academy. John Marotti, LHS class of 2011, Morgan Pepitone, LHS class of 2013 , and Michael Martinez, LHS class of 2015,  were all accepted to West Point. The LHS staff is very proud of John for working hard and following his dreams.

  • ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) SCORES SHOW POSITIVE TREND AT LHS

    LaBelle High School received their summer scores and would like to recognize teacher and student achievement. Mr. Cadet's AB and BC Calculus classes had a 100% pass rate. Mrs. Rodriguez's AP Spanish class had a 75% pass rate. Mrs. Bechtel's Biology class had 6 of 12 students pass and all students scored at the college ready level or above. The number of passing scores increased in World History, English Literature, Human Geography, Art, Statistics, Psychology, and Government. The curriculum from the AP program is more rigorous for students. College Board stresses the importance of scoring at least a score of 2 on the test. The score of 2 means the student will be college ready in that subject. Therefore, even if a student earns a 2, they benefit by increasing content knowledge when they make the commitment to engage in AP courses.

     

    LHS has expanded the number of test taken from 230 in 2012 to a projection of over 500 for the 2016-17 school year. As a community, AP helps grow students and they reward teachers and schools that participate. Students can earn college credit for scores over 3. Schools and teachers earn monetary rewards for all passing exams. Parents are reminded to check summer assignments of their children and email AP teachers.  If parents need any assistance or question about the LHS AP program please contact Dr. Iris Borghese or Mr. Kelley at 674-4120. Parents can also email kelleyd@hendry-schools.net.

  • Students & Parents,

     

    We are happy to announce that on Monday, November 13, 2017 LaBelle High School will begin to implement our much anticipated 1:1 program initiative, which essentially allows every student to have access to their own Chromebook laptop throughout each school day. Our goal with this initiative is to increase student success and ensure that our students have the necessary technology skills to compete in a 21st century workplace.

     

    Although we are very excited for this opportunity for our students, with great power comes great responsibility. Beginning on Monday, students will report to Homeroom at the beginning of each day to pick up their laptops and at the end of the day to store/charge their laptops. Students must carry their laptops from class to class in a provided protective case. Students are not permitted to take the laptops home and must store them in their Homeroom class at school. Students will be fully responsible for the laptop, meaning any damaged, lost, or stolen Chromebooks will result in a $300 obligation fee for the student. Therefore, I ask you that you please be careful and responsible with these educational tools.

     

    A monitoring program called Go Guardian is also installed on each Chromebook device, allowing the school to closely monitor that everything done on the computer is for educational purposes only. The program also allows the school to track the location of each device. I ask that you please review the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) at https://www.hendry-schools.org/…/Student%20Procedures%20for…

     

    Thank you.

    Dear Parents:

    The Florida Department of Health (DOH) reports that influenza or flu is spreading across the state. Flu is a contagious respiratory disease caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness. Serious outcomes of flu infection can result in hospitalization or death. Some people, such as young children, the elderly, and people with certain health conditions are at high risk for serious complications from flu. DOH is encouraging families to get vaccinated for flu now. Vaccination is most crucial for children with underlying health conditions such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease, and neurological and neurodevelopmental conditions.

    Vaccination is the best way to protect against the flu and severe complications from the flu. The flu vaccine is offered in many locations including pharmacies, clinics, employers, and schools. Contact your physician, county health department, or visit http://www.floridahealth.gov/programs-and-services/prevention/flu-prevention/locate-a-flu-shot.html to find a flu vaccine center near you.

    The flu vaccine is safe. The national Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that all individuals six months of age and older receive the flu vaccine each year. Since infants under six months of age are too young to get vaccinated against influenza, it is important that family members (including pregnant and breastfeeding mothers) and other caregivers for these children be vaccinated to help protect them from the disease.

    If your child becomes sick with the flu-like illness, contact your health care provider soon after the onset of illness to discuss medical care options. Symptoms of the flu often include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, headaches, of fatigue. Antiviral medication for flu has been shown to reduce severity and length of disease, decrease the risk of complications from influenza, and reduce the risk of death among hospitalized patients, particularly in those that access care early in their illness. If your child is at risk for severe complications from flu infection, your health care provider may recommend treatment with antiviral medication.

    It is especially important that parents keep sick children at home to prevent spreading the flu virus to others. Additional flu prevention steps include staying away from people who are sick, covering sneezes or coughs with a tissue or your elbow, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and frequent handwashing.

    The best way to keep yourself and your family safe and healthy during flu season is to:

    ·         Get vaccinated.
    ·         Contact your health care provider if you or your children are experiencing flu-like symptoms.
    ·         Keep sick family members home.
    ·         Follow your physician’s guidance on treatment.

    Queridos padres:

    El Departamento de Salud de la Florida (DOH, por sus siglas en inglés) informa que la influenza o gripe se está propagando por todo el estado. La gripe es una enfermedad respiratoria contagiosa causada por virus de la influenza. Puede causar enfermedad leve a severa. Los resultados serios de la infección por la gripe pueden resultar en hospitalización o muerte. Algunas personas, como los niños pequeños, los ancianos y las personas con ciertas condiciones de salud corren un alto riesgo de sufrir complicaciones graves de la gripe. El DOH está animando a las familias a vacunarse contra la gripe ahora. La vacunación es muy importante para los niños con condiciones de salud como el asma, la diabetes, las enfermedades del corazón y las enfermedades neurológicas y del neurodesarrollo.


    La vacunación es la mejor manera de protegerse contra la gripe y las graves complicaciones de la gripe. La vacuna contra la gripe se ofrece en muchos lugares, incluyendo farmacias, clínicas, empleadores y escuelas. La vacuna contra la gripe se ofrece de forma gratuita en el Departamento de Salud del Condado de Hendry, sin necesidad de cita previa. Comuníquese con su médico, departamento de salud del condado, para encontrar un centro de vacunas contra la gripe cerca de usted.


    La vacuna contra la gripe es segura. El Comité Asesor Nacional de Prácticas de Inmunización (ACIP) recomienda que todas las personas de seis meses de edad y mayores reciban la vacuna contra la gripe cada año. Dado que los niños menores de seis meses son demasiado jóvenes para vacunarse contra la gripe, es importante que los miembros de la familia (incluidas las madres embarazadas y lactantes) y otros cuidadores de estos niños sean vacunados para ayudarlos a protegerse de la enfermedad.


    Si su hijo se enferma con una enfermedad parecida a la gripe, comuníquese con su proveedor de atención médica poco después de la aparición de la enfermedad para discutir las opciones de atención médica. Los síntomas de la gripe suelen incluir fiebre, tos, dolor de garganta, secreción nasal, dolores corporales, dolores de cabeza, fatiga. Se ha demostrado que los medicamentos antivirales para la gripe reducen la gravedad y la duración de la enfermedad, disminuyen el riesgo de complicaciones por la gripe y reducen el riesgo de muerte entre los pacientes hospitalizados, particularmente en aquellos que acceden a la atención temprano en su enfermedad. Si su hijo está en riesgo de sufrir complicaciones graves por la infección por la gripe, su proveedor de atención médica puede recomendar el tratamiento con medicamentos antivirales.


    Es especialmente importante que los padres mantengan a los niños enfermos en casa para prevenir la propagación del virus de la gripe a otros. Los pasos adicionales de la prevención de la gripe incluyen permanecer alejado de las personas que están enfermas, cubrir estornudos o tos con un pañuelo o el codo, evitar tocarse los ojos, la nariz y la boca y lavarse frecuentemente las manos.


    La mejor manera de mantener a usted ya su familia segura y saludable durante la temporada de gripe es:
    • Vacúnese.
    • Comuníquese con su proveedor de atención médica si usted o sus hijos están experimentando síntomas similares a los de la gripe.
    • Mantener a los miembros enfermos de la familia en casa.
    • Siga las instrucciones de su médico sobre el tratamiento.

    Sinceramente,
    David Kelley, Principal
