TARGET REDCARD DONATIONS
Did you know that Target will send 1% of all your purchases back to HCA? Once you set up your account, you never have to think of it again. It’s easy, just click here to apply online and view the rewards program. You can also stop by Target and fill out an application for a credit or debit card. If you prefer a debit card, bring in a paper check that will allow them to link your checking account to a Target REDcard. You will receive your Target REDcard in the mail within ten days. Once you receive your card in the mail, go online to your Account Summary page and scroll to the bottom to the Rewards Summary and link your card to HCA. What’s the big deal? One school in our area received a check for $17,000 this past fall. That’s a big deal! Ask your friends and family across the country to help too.
FROM OUR NURSE
As the winter months approach, please remember the following:
Send your student to school dressed appropriately for the weather and activities of the day.
When a student is absent from school, Pam Valentine should be informed by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the reason for the absence in your email which helps us track cold and flu outbreaks for the State of Illinois.
Recently Whooping Cough has been reported in McHenry County. HCA has not had a report of Whooping Cough, but you can find information here: http://kanehealth.com/pertussis.htm.
