Staying Healthy 101
The FLU is here and VICIOUS
As we are all aware, the flu is hitting our area hard. To help avoid and prevent the flu, here are a few tips from the Centers for Disease Control we can all follow:
1. AVOID CLOSE CONTACT. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When feeling ill, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick.
2.STAY HOME WHEN YOU ARE SICK. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. This will help prevent spreading the illness to others.
3. COVER YOUR MOUTH AND NOSE. Cover mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
4.CLEAN HANDS FREQUENTLY. Washing hands often will help protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
5. AVOID TOUCHING THE EYES, NOSE OR MOUTH. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
6. PRACTICE OTHER GOOD HEALTH HABITS. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.

Get to know IXL’s amazing staff!!
Halston Shaw, Second Grade Teacher
This will be my first-year teaching at IXL Elementary, I just graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Kansas State University on th.
I have been coaching and teaching since I was twelve years old (which is crazy right?) I started off teaching tumbling and dance classes when I was younger and I instantly fell in love with helping kids! In high-school I was able to get into the classroom and complete a career internship. When I got accepted into the College of Education at Kansas State University, I was able to get my foot into the classroom the second semester I was there. Since 2014, I have been completing practicum blocks and I am happy to finally be done with school and doing what I love here at IXL Elementary.
I decided to become a teacher for a few reasons. Both of parents are educators, so I guess you could say it runs in the family! I love kids and I have always loved making a difference in the lives of others.
I have cheered and danced my whole life and I continued to cheer in college while attending Kansas State University. In my free time, I enjoy being outside, working out/listening to music, and spending time with my family and friends.
