COVID PROTOCOLS AND RETURNING TO SCHOOL

Here are some important reminders regarding returning to school after testing positive for COVID:


  • Students can end isolation after 5 full days if fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and other symptoms have improved

  • Students who have recently tested positive and the nurses are aware, parents and students are explained the above process. When a student returns on day 6, they are to wear a mask for 5 additional days (weekend included). The school nurse will let parents know the exact date that the student can return to school, the date they wear a mask through and will also let them know that they must eat separately from other students until they reach day 10

HELLO SPRING!!!!!!

Good news, spring is finally here! As we prepare for our final push toward the end of the school year, its extremely important students are attending school regularly and putting in maximum effort. During the month of June, all core classes will be giving a final exam. These exams are cumulative and will give our staff critical information on the retention of information provided throughout the year. Students who fail to earn a 65% on any academic course will be offered summer school to prepare for the upcoming school year. Please contact your child's teacher if you have any questions regarding course grades. You can also view your child's grades through the parent portal via E-school.
