I want to recognize the efforts of our teaching staff as they have been adjusting remarkably to the challenge of teaching simultaneously to both remote and in person students. A lot of the technical challenges have been worked out and it is impressive watching our teachers in action engaging students in the learning process.
I wanted to recognize the efforts of our staff and students with helping to maintain social distance and safety protocols. It is not easy for anyone as it is human nature to want to connect with others but everyone is working hard to keep us as safe as possible despite the challenges. To date, our staff/student exclusions due to symptoms(isolate pending test results) is 22 students and 7 staff members. We have been fortunate as we have had no "positive" tests to date. Please remember as the temperatures drop and we move indoors, we are likely going to see an increase in colds, flu etc. As the symptoms for cold/flu can often mimic the symptoms related to COVID, we must be extra diligent in screening our students for signs and symptoms prior to the start of school. Please assist us in this process by pre-screening at home when possible.
One of the single greatest impacts on a students educational success...is attendance. Over the last 3 weeks we have been seeing a slight dip in attendance when students(remote and hybrid) are attending online, especially towards the end of the week. Please help us to encourage your student to log in, turn their camera on, and engage in class. It is crucial to their success. In the event your student is having issues logging on, or the attendance is incorrect, please let us know.
