We have started Week 6 of face-to-face school, and continuing to work through various issues. This week is the first week without Virtual Wednesdays. This week, the Week of October 5, we began five (5) day weeks.
I want to thank everyone for your cooperation and patience as we start this different school year.
A couple of reminders:
- Please check your child daily for symptoms as fever, chills, sneezing, coughing, fatigue, sore throat, muscle or body aches, headache, nausea, and/or difficulty breathing. If your child shows these symptoms, please keep him or her home.
- Have your child wash hands regularly and often.
- Students and all adults must wear face coverings when entering and remaining in a building or a bus. This is a department of education directive that the schools must follow.
- If we follow all these precautions, we can keep schools open and have a successful school year.
