A Message from Mrs. Schneider
Dear Woodland Families,
This week Avondale School District shifted COVID quarantining guidelines to align with state and county guidelines. The district has communicated the new guidelines through emails sent to families. We have created a chart that may be helpful for you and I will link it below.
School districts will no longer be contact tracing. If a positive case occurs in a child's classroom, a letter will be sent to the classroom to notify families. Families are then asked to monitor their child for any symptoms. You do not need to keep your child at home unless they present symptoms. If symptoms present, we recommend that you have them tested. We are providing free COVID-19 testing at the Administration Building (2940 Waukegan, Auburn Hills) for students who have received a school notification of a case in their classroom. Testing hours are from 6:45am-9:00am Monday-Friday.
If your child tests positive or there is a positive case in the household, your child must quarantine for 5 days. Day 1 is the first day AFTER symptom onset or positive test.
In adopting these new guidelines, we are focused on maintaining in-person teaching and learning in a safe and healthy environment. We are asking for your vigilance in monitoring your student’s health and commitment to communicating with us any changes or concerns you may have about their physical well-being.
Just a reminder that we do not have school on Monday, January 17th in honor of MLK Day.
Have a wonderful weekend,
District Kindergarten Information Night
If you have a child who will be 5 years old by September 1, 2022, they will be eligible to enter TK or K. We encourage you to mark your calendar and attend via Zoom with us. Meet the building principals and district leaders who will be sharing information on:
1. How excited we are to have your student join us!
2. Transitional Kindergarten vs. Kindergarten--What is the best fit for my child?

A zoom link will be posted as we get closer to the event.

What Does Prudence Mean?
This means that you plan for the future and achieve your goals by making careful everyday choices. Prudence is the ability to do the right thing, at the right time, for the right reason. It's a future-oriented way of thinking that helps a person set goals, make plans, and have the discipline to accomplish them. It is cognitive - more a strength of the head than of the heart.
Next week's focus is on Perseverance.
