SUMMER FUN SAFETY TIPS
Wear a helmet, knee pads and elbow pads when riding your bike, scooter or skateboard
Poison ivy, oak and sumac contain urushiol, an oil, can cause an allergic skin reaction that looks like an itchy, blistering rash after it touches your skin. Try to avoid these areas outside.
If stung by an insect, remove the stinger as soon as possible. Wash with soap and water and apply a cold compress. If trouble breathing, severe swelling or loss of consciousness, seek medical attention right away
Always swim with a buddy. Never swim alone, no matter the age.
Have young children or inexperienced swimmers wear life jackets around water, but do not rely on life jackets alone.
To prevent heat stress and heat stroke, stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water especially when outside on hot and humid days.
Limit sun exposure between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm when UV rays are the strongest. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a SPF of AT LEAST 15. Apply at least every two hours and more often if your are swimming or sweating.

Get to know IXL’s amazing staff!!
Rachel Davis, 3rd-5th Grade Reading Teacher
I am finishing up my fourth year here at IXL. This is my fifth year teaching. I spent one year in kindergarten before I realized that was not the life for me! I came to IXL and fell in love with teaching fifth grade. At semester, I ventured into the world of teaching reading to third, fourth, and fifth graders. It has been an adventure, but I really enjoy teaching my students!! I love sharing my love for reading and encouraging them to become life long readers! I became an educator to make a difference in the world. I strive to teach my students to do the same. I am currently working on my masters degree at Emporia State University, so that leaves me with little spare time! However, in my spare time I love to read, spend time with my husband, visit family, and play board games. I also enjoy watching OSU football and OKC Thunder basketball!
