Posted January 12, 2022
Welcome back and Happy New Year! We hope you all had a good break. It’s always energizing to see our hallways come alive again with students reconnecting with friends, sharing stories of the holidays, and quickly delving into studies. Teachers are now focused on resetting classroom norms and making sure we achieve our winter and spring goals.
As we start a new year we would like to share a few COVID procedures/reminders with you:
COVID-19 Screening and COVID-19 Testing Decision Tree
Quarantine and COVID-19 in Cases in School Settings
Also, we would like to send a heartfelt thank you to the many families that donated to the “Adopt-A Family” outreach program in December. We collected a sufficient amount of gifts, food contributions, and gift cards that supported nineteen families totaling eighty individuals. It is refreshing to know that the meaning of the holidays can still be rooted around the concept that giving is more worth than receiving.
