Dear Parents/Guardians,             
 
Kids Need Sleep
        
I recently came across an article from CBS News out of Atlanta regarding a study entitled “Kids Need up to 11 hours of Sleep a Night.” The article reviewed research from the National Sleep Foundation and recommended that children between the ages of six and ten years get up to 11 hours of sleep at night. The same article suggested that research out of the University of Chicago found that a majority of children are not getting that much. One factor related to this finding was that, based on parent responses, 72 percent of children have at least one electronic device in their bedroom. Dr. Jyoti Krishna of the Cleveland Clinic was quoted as saying “We know that light in the eyes hampers or delays melatonin rhythms, which is an essential hormone that makes us sleep at night.” While most polled had set up rules related to sleep, 64% said they didn’t actually enforce these rules. I summarized information from the national Association of School Psychologists in my January article regarding bedtime guidelines and feel like a heel for harping on this issue. However, I know the issue is a difficult one for parents to follow through on and wish to continue to encourage best practices.   Please refer back to that newsletter article and feel free to contact me with questions and or assistance.

 Housekeeping

 Each year we have some reporting requirements that I would like to attend to now. One of these is to inform parents of our participation in Title I programs and to explain Title I requirements and the rights of parents involved. Title I is a federally funded program that allows us to provide AIS or remedial services to students. Parents of students that receive these services have been notified by mail and are encouraged to contact me at a time convenient to them regarding any questions they may have regarding this program. Additionally some information is available on my website at http://director-of-students-services.ccsknights.schoolfusion.us/modules/locker/files/group_files.phtml?parent=10980010&gid=2247780&sessionid=49ab38f2cb5797c0f8fff9af87f616bf 
 
Furthermore, we are required to notify parents in writing indicating their right to request the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teacher. Anyone requesting this information can contact me at school.    
              
If you have any questions regarding these or any other topics, please contact me at 688-4411 or at dmunn@ccsknights.org.
 
Sincerely,

Dale R. Munn, Jr.
Director of Student Services
