  • Christmas Stroll

    Posted by Lisa Crane on 12/22/2020

    Thank you to all of the parents, teachers, and students who helped to make the Christmas Stroll a beautiful, meaningful, wonderful event to kick-off Christmas vacation. Neither a foot of snow nor a pandemic could stop us! Between the safely pre-recorded Christmas concert playing on a big screen, the Nativity, the students' hand-decorated Christmas trees and, of course, Santa Claus, it was a night to remember. For more picture of the stroll, please visit the school's Flickr site.

    Merry Christmas everyone!

  • COVID-19 Symptoms & Procedures

    Posted by Lisa Crane on 9/1/2020

    The health and safety of your children and our staff will rely, in part, on individual attention and responsibility this year. We ask you to check your child daily for the symptoms below. The most important thing to do if any of the following symptoms are present is to stay home. We know that some symptoms of COVID-19 are the same as the flu or a bad cold, but please do not assume that it is another conditionWhen in doubt, stay home. Your child’s teacher will be in touch regarding missed work and remote learning opportunities. If a child becomes sick at school, we will isolate him/her until a parent can arrive.

    Most Common Symptoms of COVID-19 and Testing Requirements:

    • Fever [100.4or higher] chills, shaking chills
    • Cough [not due to other known cause, such as chronic cough]
    • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
    • New loss of taste or smell
    • Sore throat
    • Headache when in combination with other symptoms
    • Muscle aches or body aches
    • Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
    • Fatigue when in combination with other symptoms
    • Nasal congestion or runny nose [not due to other known causes, such as allergies] when in combination with other symptoms.

     

    Staff and students who have symptoms should contact their primary care physician for further instructions. If staff or students have these symptoms, they must get tested for active COVID-19 prior to returning to school. If a student tests positive for the virus, the class will automatically move to remote learning for 14 days or when cleared by medical authorities. We anticipate adding to and/or adjusting these guidelines as necessary for safety.
