English Students Hear Story of Holocaust Survivor

Francoise Max, a French Holocaust survivor, was a guest speaker in Ms. Chalew's classroom on November, 6th. Mrs. Max is 91 and presently lives in New York. She came to the United States in the early 50's because her father, a veteran of WWI, was disgusted with the French after their lack of protection for the Jews during WWII. The family was able to survive by leaving Paris in 1940 to go into hiding in a hamlet in the south of France where they hid in a local inn. Francoise's father was a diamond dealer and was able to use some of his stock to pay for their hiding. He would send the then 12-year-old Francoise into Cannes on her bicycle to sell the diamonds to provide for the family's expenses.

Mrs. Max spent about 20 minutes telling her personal story to a captivated class of 35 sophomores. Afterward, Ms. Chalew's students asked Mrs. Max about her experiences in hiding and the effect it had on her. Her wish for Ms. Chalew's students was to continue studying so they could be a part of the solution as we strive to make our society a better place for everyone.

Please remember that attendance counts, every period, every day. Students will be marked absent if they are not on camera at the beginning of each period to verify their attendance.

If your student is having difficulty logging in, please contact your teacher immediately, and remember to clear their attendance by the end of the day.

All single period absences will need to be reconciled through the attendance office by the student. If marked absent, students will receive an email from the attendance office notifying them that they have been marked absent. The notification will include the date and period of the absence. The student will need to contact the Attendance Department to make any necessary corrections to their individual period attendance. For full-day absences, a parent/guardian must contact the attendance office by the end of the day.

We are so happy to see all of our students online and learning. They are working hard and making us proud. Keep up the great work!

For your safety, if you or your student come onto campus to pick up instructional materials, play sports, or have an appointment, please be aware you will be asked to fill out a visitor/parent/student assessment. Due to Covid- 19 the assessment is required by the State and the form itself is "CONFIDENTIAL."

The questions are as follows:

2. Have you been in close contact** with any person who has tested positive COVID-19 within the last 14 day?

3. Have you or anyone living with you been out of the country within the last 14 days?

**CLOSE CONTACT is defined as: Being within approximately 6 feet of a COVID-19 case for 10 minutes or more; close contact can occur when having direct contact with infectious secretions of a COVID-19 case (being coughed on).

Please note: If you answer YES to any of these questions, please do not come to campus. We appreciate your efforts to keep us all safe during these uncertain times.
