Tiger Talk- Special Edition

09/9/21

Dear Parents and Guardians,


West Cypress Hills Elementary has experienced an increase in positive COVID cases over the last three weeks. While we understand that there are outside factors that contribute to exposure, we want to do everything we can to continue to keep our school open and kids learning.


For the next three weeks, in an effort to increase safety on our campus, the following additional measures are being implemented on our campus.


1) Classroom Structure: Limiting small group work. When possible, classroom desks are spread out.


2) 3rd, 4th, and 5th: Students will stay in their homeroom classroom. Team teachers will travel to their partner's homeroom classrooms.


3) School Supplies: Limiting shared supplies. Wiping down items that are shared in the classroom between uses.


4) PE: Weather permitting, classes will be held outside. While indoors, limit group games and activities.


5) Recess: The recess yard is zoned for this week. Classes will rotate through the zones during the week.


6) Lunch: Outdoor seating is available. Lunch tables are spread out and facing one direction.


Thank you for your understanding and partnership.


Melanie
