ESY stands for extended school year. This is a program where kids stay in school longer so they can stay fresh for their next school year. Special ed kids and those who are slow learners attend this extra month of school, as does mom. It's a challenging decision to make; should she enroll her child in a program that encourages and aids her child's educational development, a program that challenges their summer schedule and the options of other learning and living?
Kids that attend ESY already limit their options to attend sleep away camps and fun day camps like tennis, soccer, gymnastics and etc. Deciding which holds the greater value is what she needs to do. Summer memories are important in the development of a child. I remember family vacations, camps, activities, community pools and sleeping late. What type of learning does her child need and what schedule is best for the summer? Decisions, decisions, decisions!

Let's change bringing home the bacon to what?
There are about 76 million cases of food poisoning a year in the U.S., many resulting in hospitalizations and some in death. Salad bars can make a lovely meal, provided all the ingredients are fresh, but summer heat could make your favorite pay-by- the-pound salad bar a dangerous place to eat. Simply put, keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold. The National Restaurant Association recommends that salad bars check these temperatures every two hours. In two hours, the summer sun can turn some foods into choice breeding grounds for bacteria. Here are some foods to scrutinize or avoid when eating at a deli salad bar during a hot day:
Foods with a mayonnaise base, like tuna or chicken salad
- Yogurt and cottage cheese
- Grilled fish and meat
- Unpeeled fruits and shellfish
