COVID Updates:  I am happy to share that we only had 3 positive COVID cases this week and only 2 of them were from students who were on campus and from the same household.   If your child was deemed a close contact, you would have received an email and an antigen test was sent home with your child on Friday.  Please be sure to administer the test prior to your child returning on Monday.   If your child tests positive, please be sure to label the test with your child’s first and last name, date of birth, school, POSITIVE, and date of the test and upload it to your child’s Daily Pass.   Also, please be sure to email me ( and your child’s teacher regarding the positive results so I can assist you with the safe return to school timeline.  Please remember if your child exhibits any flu like symptoms please keep your child home and test them prior to returning to school to ensure they are negative.
