Take Care of Yourself

In her weekly message, Supt. Reedy notes how a lot of APS employees and students aren't feeling too well these days.

There’s no denying it. A lot of us aren’t feeling too well these days. Whether it’s the flu, a cold, allergies or something else that’s messing with our systems, there’s a lot of coughing and sneezing going on in our classrooms and offices, not to mention the exhaustion, both mental and physical.

No wonder. This is a busy time of year. There’s so much going on, so much to do. Mix that with a nasty bug and or two and it’s not surprising that many of us – and many of our students, too – are feeling under the weather.

With that in mind, I’m going to keep my message short this week. I just want to make sure you’re OK. If you need to take a sick day or two to recover, do so. If you need to take care of an ailing child, I understand. Information on employee sick leave is posted on the district’s website.

If you’ve managed to avoid getting sick this winter, I wish you continued health. Keep doing what you’re doing; looks like it’s working.

It’s hard to do a good job when you’re not feeling well. So get lots of rest, drink liquids, wash your hands frequently – all of that good stuff. Find time to do the things that make you happy, too. Mental and emotional health are just as important.   

Please, take care of yourself!
