Dear Families,

As we transition back to school after this much-needed break, it will be increasingly important to be diligent about our protocols.  Please take a moment to review the following expectations.

No matter whether we are in-person learning or distance learning, you should STAY HOME and notify the school in the following instances immediately:
-If your student is sick or if anyone in your household has any COVID-related symptoms listed on the decision tree (attached)
-If anyone in your household has been identified as a close contact to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19
-If anyone in your household is awaiting test results due to exposure to a close contact
-If anyone in your household tests positive for COVID-19

Having this information as soon as possible helps us to mitigate risk for others, stop any spread, and continue to maintain in-person learning.

If you are unsure about what to do in any of these situations, we are happy to help you!  You can email or call at ANY time.

If you have concerns about any possible exposure this week, quarantining (post-travel or otherwise), or resuming in-person learning next Monday, please reach out to me to discuss.  We want to support all of our families in the various decisions you face as best we can.  The physical, mental, and spiritual health of our entire school family is paramount.

Avoid unnecessary risks.  Please know that the Board of Education and I take the decisions that must be made on behalf of our teachers and students/families very seriously.  Your support of our school no matter what comes is needed and appreciated!  Remain ready to pivot as needed.

Continue to pray for our devoted faculty/staff and our Board of Education — all of whom are working hard to keep students in-person.  I give thanks to the Lord for each and every one of you, for our school, and for God’s continued care and blessings this year.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

In joyful service,

Mrs. Dolan
