Dear Ninety-One Community,


As we round the bend to winter vacation, I would like to express my gratitude to our amazing Ninety-One team! Thank you to Andy Pauls, Colby Scheer, Heather Parkki and Cheryl Beyer, our district office team and all, for supporting our Ninety-One students and staff during my absence as I've been recovering from shoulder surgery. What a team! To say I look forward to the new year has a whole new meaning this year and I wish you and your families good health and wonderful time together over the holiday break.


Friday school spirit days have really caught on and we look forward to this light hearted way of ending the week. This Friday is "ugly sweater day". Let's see that school spirit!


Also, please look for really important information and updates below regarding new COVID-19 guidance for schools, including Test to Stay.


Go Bulldogs!


Warmly,


Joanna Tobin, Principal

Health and Safety Information and Reminders

We are now offering expanded quarantine options for students to significantly reduce missed class time after COVID-19 exposures, all while minimizing the risks of COVID-19 transmission. There is now a "Test to Stay" option and a shortened 7-day quarantine option in addition to our current options.


Note that the new Test to Stay requires parent permission for testing at school. Please fill out the permission form linked below and return it to the front office.




More health and safety information, including guidance on when to keep your child home from school, is attached below. More information specific to our school district is available on our COVID-19 Information page.
