ADDITIONAL STAR TUTORS NEEDED IN JANUARY

We are looking for additional STAR Reading tutors, but we are specifically in need of 3 more reading tutors on Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 2:15-3:15pm starting in January. If anyone would like more information, please contact our STAR Reading Coordinator, Wendy Lemon, via email at: wlemon@dsdmail.net.

GOOD NEWS ON COVID CASES

We are currently at 21 cases within the most recent 14-day window, but 1 case will drop off Sunday night and 7 more cases drop Monday night. Mid-week another 6 cases drop off. We appear to be out of the risk zone and a Test to Stay is no longer being considered at Reading. We hope to keep cases low as we return from the holidays. Thank you for your help and patience during the weeks since Thanksgiving break. Our turn on the COVID rollercoaster wasn't very fun!
