Dear Parents, Based on the current weather models available, there will be severe weather risks that are substantial during arrival time. The time frame for this system would still exist for a delayed start. For this reason, we will be closed for tomorrow and will resume classes on Friday. Please be safe and monitor these weather conditions for tonight and tomorrow morning.

At this time we are continuing to monitor the forecast for tomorrow's weather. The time frame for the arrival of severe weather Thursday morning is still very wide. The county is also split with two different risk levels. The window of the stronger weather is between 5:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Currently, we have not made any changes in arrival times or made any cancellations. We will continue to monitor all updates prior to 6:00 p.m. today so that we make the best decision for the safety of our students.

February 5, 2021 Dear Parents, As we continue with in person instruction, we will mitigate and assist with contact tracing as much as possible. We depend on the assistance of our parents. Much of the identification and accurate recognition of symptoms, as well as when they occur, come from sources outside of the school setting. Please check your student each day, especially if they are assigned to quarantine. Quarantines are issued when someone is identified as a close contact. A close contact means being within 6 feet of a person with COVID-19 for 15 minutes or more. While this is very difficult at times to investigate and determine, taking precautions to prevent spread is necessary. Your help in the detection from home, at any point when your child doesn’t feel well, is appreciated. Please continue to help us stay safe and healthy by: • Masking up • Staying home when sick • Physically distancing as much as possible • Sanitizing hands regularly To ensure you are provided with the most recent information, please see the weekly status report below. This information provides the total number of active COVID-19 cases reported by our system to DPH, as well as the total number of quarantines as a result. COVID-19 Status Report as of February 5, 2021 at 4 p.m. Total Number of In-Person Students and Staff: 1166 (students) + 143 (staff) = 1309 Total Number of Active COVID-19 Cases: ES staff-1, ES students-0, MHS staff-2, MHS students-9 Total Number of Active Quarantines Due to Close Contact: ES staff-1, ES students- 11, MHS staff- 1, MHS students- 73 Thank you for your continued support of our schools!
