  • RIVER CITY EARLY COLLEGE HIGH SCHOOL EARNS FIRST-EVER HIGH SCHOOL LIGHTHOUSE CERTIFICATION FROM FRANKLINCOVEY

     

    The Vicksburg Warren School District is celebrating the announcement that  River City Early College High School (RCECHS) has been named a Certified Lighthouse School, a highly-regarded standard set by FranklinCovey for the school’s implementation of the Leader In Me (LiM) initiative.  Since its official launch nearly a decade ago, nearly 4,000 schools across 50 countries have adopted the LiM process. While more than 300 schools have achieved the prestigious Lighthouse certification, this is the first time high schools have earned this status.  RCECHS is one of only two high schools in the world that were honored to earn this designation this week. 

     

    FranklinCovey leaders made the announcement via live video stream to an audience of River City Early College High School students, staff, parents and community leaders gathered in Vicksburg at Triumph Church to celebrate the designation. 

     

    The Leader in Me was first sponsored in the schools by the Vicksburg-Warren County Chamber of Commerce in 2012. It has since expanded into all schools and touches every student in grades Pre-K through 12. Four other schools in the District have earned Lighthouse Certification, the Academy of Innovation STEM Middle School, and Bovina, Bowmar Avenue and Redwood Elementary Schools.

    MESSAGE FROM NURSE NASH REGARDING FLU: 

    I just wanted to address several questions I've been asked regarding the Flu which includes the Coronavirus (2019-CoV). The most important point to understand is that researchers are still learning about the Coronavirus and ways that this new virus is transmitted. In the meantime, the best advice based on CDC recommendations is to:

    1. Wash your hands thoroughly regularly throughout the day.
    2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
    3. Avoid contact with people who are sick and
    4. Instruct students to sneeze or cough into their elbow if a tissue and handwashing is not available.  

    This advice will help protect you and the students from a whole host of infections, including 2019-CoV.

    I also want to address face masks and facial respirators for the flu. If a child has the flu or a communicable infection then they shouldn't be in school. A person with an immunity deficiency that requires a mask,  probably needs to be isolated from other people and a doctor's order would be needed if a face mask is required. A face mask would cause a distraction to other students and is not a health necessity at this time.

    Sincerely,

    Cyndee Nash
