The Davis Education Foundation
Patti Moses, Speech-Language Pathologist at King Elementary,
a $500 grant!
Mrs. Moses wrote the grant to purchase an iPad Air, case/keyboard, screen protector and apps for students receiving speech therapy services. With the additional iPad, small groups of students will be able to use iPads on an individual basis for optimal learning opportunities and to maximize their therapy time. The iPad has proven to be a very positive, engaging way to provide visual and auditory feedback within a small group setting. Students can be individually instructed, observed, and continue practicing while other students receive individualized instruction. Thank you Davis Education Foundation for supporting King Elementary Special Education students as they work on improving communication skills to progress in the general education curriculum!
Is Idling Harmful to Children?
Yes! An idling vehicle emits twenty times more pollutants than a vehicle traveling at 32 mph. These pollutants have been linked to serious human illnesses including asthma, heart disease, chronic bronchitis and cancer. Children, the elderly and those with asthma and other chronic health problems are especially vulnerable to the health dangers of exhaust.
Is Air Quality a Concern in Davis County?
Yes! According to residents, air pollution is the leading force working against health in Davis County. The Salt Lake City/Ogden/Clearfield metropolitan area has the 6th most polluted air in the United States.
Commit to Not Idling Your Vehicle!
Here are a few simple tips to reduce idling and improve the air quality:
If you know you’re going to wait, turn your engine off. Don’t turn your vehicle on until you are ready to leave. Use remote starters wisely. Warm up your engine by driving it, not by idling. The vehicle’s engine warms twice as quickly when driven. Park your vehicle and walk into fast food restaurants, pharmacies, dry cleaners, banks and other drive-thru locations. If you must use a drive-thru, turn off your engine while at the window. While reducing idling around town is great, you should never turn your car off in traffic.
The Davis School District will keep parents informed of school emergencies and school closures due to weather. Information will be posted here as needed.
Parents also may get the most up-to-date information from the district's Twitter and Facebook accounts.
