We realize for those who have to quarantine and those impacted by COVID, this is a big disruption; but this process keeps students and staff safe while allowing 3900 students to continue with in-person learning. We are optimistic about this downward trend and are hopeful that students and families will continue to practice the mitigation strategies to reduce transmission of the virus and allow our schools to remain open, and perhaps even extend more in-person learning options for families.
With spring break right around the corner, we know we are all feeling the cabin fever and are ready to get out and maybe travel, visit the great outdoors or see family members outside of the household. We couldn’t agree more on the cabin fever, and we are hopeful that families and staff make smart and safe decisions around their activities, and continue to follow the three W’s: watch your distance, wear a mask, wash your hands.
During spring break, if anyone in your or your student’s circle of friends and family experiences symptoms or receives a positive test you are strongly encouraged to report this as soon as possible. Also, please DO NOT report back to school until symptoms are all cleared and you have received clearance to return from your Primary Care Provider. For those of you currently in quarantine, we understand the extra sacrifice your family will be making to eliminate activities during the break and we are grateful for your diligence to ensure the safety of our community and the ability to keep our doors open at our schools.
We hope everyone has a relaxing and safe spring break and we look forward to everyone’s return on Monday, March 22, 2021.
