Sleep Hygiene: Developing habits for healthy sleep

Boy sleeping.

We are an active, interrupted and engaged society. “Shutting down” is a dream for many of us. In fact, while we sleep, our brains may still be engaged. In our waking hours, we may feel sluggish.

Sleep Hygiene may be a strange title, conjuring up images of brushing teeth and hand washing, but it encompasses everything surrounding quality, restful sleep. Many in our society have fallen victim to the symptoms of sleep deprivation. In fact, people can be misdiagnosed with depression, ADD/ADHD, dementia and other issues because they are sleep deprived. Sleep deprivation can also lead to serious health issues.

You can develop habits for you and your family each evening to optimize sleep. Join us at the Sleep Hygiene Workshop at Sky Ridge Medical Center on September 13 at 6pm. You will learn behaviors and practices from sleep specialists and researchers in order to make sure you and your family function at your absolute best!

District News

While the holidays are often a joyous time with friends and family, we know that they can also be stressful, not just for adults, but for children too. In addition to the annual pressure of gift giving, family gathering and travel, the holidays can trigger memories of the loss of loved ones and other traumatic events.

DCSD Board of Directors sitting at dais

On Monday, December 4, the Douglas County School District Board of Education voted unanimously (with six voting members) to approve a resolution to rescind the Choice Scholarship Program. The Resolution outlines three steps to this revocation: 1) Rescind the Choice Scholarship Program, 2) Repeal all district policies specifically related to the Choice Scholarship Program and the School Choice Grant Program, 3) Direct the Board President and/or Interim Superintendent to end the litigation challenging the Choice Scholarship Program in a cost-efficient and timely manner. The resolution takes effect immediately.

HRHS Cyber Patriots

Equifax, Target, Yahoo... Unfortunately it is not uncommon to hear about— or fall victim to— data security breaches as computers become increasingly integrated into our lives. However, a generation of high school students are preparing to fill cybersecurity roles to help protect all of us against future attacks; and many of these future protectors are right here in Douglas County. Meet the Highlands Ranch High School CyberPatriots.
