Dear Parents, I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving break. Please enjoy the time that you will have off next week to spend with family and friends. Stay safe, rest, and take the time to show appreciation to those around you. After this break, we will have a short run until Christmas holidays. It is so very important to maximize our efforts during these next few weeks to make our first semester end on a high note! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Please help each school by informing us if your family does come into contact with a Covid positive person away from campus. If a member of your household tests positive, everyone in contact with that person within your household should quarantine. Days for household quarantines can only begin when the exposure is over, either by the separation from the Covid positive person or when the Covid positive household member is deemed negative, without symptoms, and the appropriate days have passed. Our numbers will reflect all known active cases of students in or out of the school setting as of the date and time listed. Below is this week’s report. COVID-19 Status Report as of 4:00 November 19, 2021 Elementary School – Students 3 positives and 5 quarantines. Middle High School – Students 2 positives and 7 quarantines. School Staff – 1 positive. Sincerely, Brian Hall

Dear Parents, Fall break for students begins today and will continue through Tuesday. We hope everyone has a safe and restful few days off so that they will be ready to return on Wednesday! Thank you for all the hard work to get this first nine weeks completed. We appreciate the effort of our students, teachers, and parents. Report cards were issued this week allowing everyone to assess the accomplishments made thus far. As we move towards the end of the first semester, I want to encourage parents to utilize the after school instruction that will be offered beginning October 19th.

Free COVID-19 VACCINE
Dear Parents, Each week I try to briefly include relevant school information, as well as comments, for weekly news or events followed by the repeated request to mask up and watch for symptoms. This week saw an increase in our positives for the Friday report. The impact seems to still be in middle school from last week’s quarantines that registered as positives this week. Your help is needed. Morning announcements are made encouraging mask wearing, and we continue to furnish masks daily. Many students wear their masks and are doing a decent job of wearing them in the correct way. This has improved greatly among some of our athletes, which as a group, are trying to preserve their team and season. We have continued to encourage everyone to mask up while allowing it to be a choice. It is still a choice except on buses where masks are required. Our teachers are tasked with many things daily - to space, to monitor, to keep groupings the same, and to instruct students. I have so much respect for what they have done and are doing. They do not need another job of policing mask wearing. Speaking for them, they would simply prefer having all their students healthy and in attendance each day. For that to happen with the schedule ahead, we need everyone to partner in the effort. Fall break is approaching, along with attractions like the fair, which will gather many people together. We need a united conscious effort to protect everyone upon their daily return to school. Mask up to provide the necessary layer of protection to others. Please help each school by informing us if your family does come into contact with a Covid positive person away from campus. If a member of your household tests positive, everyone in contact with that person within your household should quarantine. Days for household quarantines can only begin when the exposure is over, either by the separation from the Covid positive person or when the Covid positive household member is deemed negative, without symptoms, and the appropriate days have passed. Our numbers will reflect all known active cases of students in or out of the school setting as of the date and time listed. Below is this week’s report. COVID-19 Status Report 4:00 October 1, 2021 Elementary School – Students 2 positive and 27 quarantines. Middle High School – Students 12 positive and 49 quarantines. School Staff – 2 positives.

Dear Parents, Throughout this week, we have seen an increase in both cases and quarantines primarily in middle grades. Both the elementary and high school numbers showed declines. Some cases were linked to school related events outside of the classroom resulting in shutdowns for two extracurricular groups. Also, there were more quarantines resulting this week due to exposure of students that attended class, presented symptoms, and left school to be tested. Part of the difficulty of this virus is knowing what to look for because it presents itself differently in many cases. Strep cases and flu have been present and symptoms can rapidly show themselves. Please check with your student daily. Do not dismiss small symptoms. Consult with your pediatrician or family health care provider if at all possible. While we want students in school, some cases may warrant closer monitoring of an oncoming illness at home. We continue to encourage everyone to mask up within the buildings. Masks provide a layer of protection when spacing may not be more than 6 feet. Each school will continue to notify parents if an exposure occurs. Please help each school by informing us if your family does come into contact with a Covid positive person away from campus. If a member of your household tests positive, everyone in contact with that person within your household should quarantine. Days for household quarantines can only begin when the exposure is over, either by the separation from the Covid positive person or when the Covid positive household member is deemed negative, without symptoms, and the appropriate days have passed.

COVID-19 Status Report as of 4:00 September 24, 2021 Elementary School – Students 3 positive and 19 quarantines. Middle High School – Students 16 positives and 37 quarantines. School Staff – 1 positive. Sincerely, Brian Hall

Dear Parents, Our elementary school is in full swing with parent conferences as we continue to approach the end of the nine weeks. Also, the middle high has completed many student conferences for academic concerns identified from progress reports. Both schools will be announcing plans for after-school programs set to begin in October. This after-school support will extend to high school with transportation provided. As information begins to roll out, we encourage anyone needing assistance in any area to please take advantage of the after-school instruction. For any student riding a school bus to or from school, masks are required. Buses are supplied with extra masks and hand sanitizer. Daily compliance is expected of all students. We encourage everyone to mask up within the buildings as well. Masks provide a layer of protection when spacing may not be more than 6 feet. Each school will continue to notify parents if an exposure occurs. Please help each school by informing us if your family does come into contact with a Covid positive person away from campus. If a member of your household tests positive, everyone in contact with that person within your household should quarantine. Days for household quarantines can only begin when the exposure is over, either by the separation from the Covid positive person or when the Covid positive household member is deemed negative, without symptoms, and the appropriate days have passed.

Title I Meeting
Dear Parents, During the short week this week, very little contact tracing within the schools occurred. The majority of additions to the quarantine and positive lists were added over the four day holiday and a significant number of our quarantines from elementary school are set to come off on Monday. Our local health department in cooperation with CORE held a vaccination drive this morning with good participation. We encourage anyone (ages 12 and up) that has not been fully vaccinated to get their vaccination. Locally, DPH will host another drive through vaccination event on October 1 from 9:00-12:00. We encourage everyone to mask up. It is required on all buses. Masks provide a layer of protection when spacing may not be more than 6 feet. Each school will continue to notify parents if an exposure occurs. Please help each school by informing us if your family does come into contact with a Covid positive person away from campus. If a member of your household tests positive, everyone in contact with that person within your household should quarantine. Days for household quarantines can only begin when the exposure is over, either by the separation from the Covid positive person or when the Covid positive household member is deemed negative, without symptoms, and the appropriate days have passed. Our numbers will reflect all known active cases of students in or out of the school setting as of the date and time listed. Below is this week’s report. COVID-19 Status Report as of 4:00 September 10, 2021 Elementary School – Students 5 positive and 47 quarantines. Of the 47, 29 are non-school related. Middle High School – Students 12 positives and 24 quarantines. Of the 24, 11 are non-school related. School Staff – 3 positives. Sincerely, Brian Hall
