Principal Memo

This week at Fammatre, we had...

* The Bike Rodeo

* Twin Day

* Great ShakeOut

* After School Classes began

* Chess Club and Legos at lunch on Wednesdays continued.

* Teachers in PLC and students with Valley Sports.

* Weekly music began

* Mrs. Schwiebert toured our campus

We are extra excited to be hosting our first Monster Boogie Bash in three years! While the event itself is fun for all the students and a great way to meet more parents in our community, one of my favorite things about it is having our former students come back to volunteer. It is so cool to see the teenagers return to their elementary school and be mature enough to help run one of their favorite events from when they were little.

Today we said good-bye to our daytime custodian, Joe. He will be missed by students, staff, and probably some parents during morning drop-off. Our loss is another school district's gain. I also want to take a moment to officially welcome Milashu to our staff. Milashu is our new evening custodian. She will be working this weekend at the Monster Boogie Bash. If you see her, please greet her warmly.

I look forward to seeing all of you at the Monster Boogie Bash tomorrow evening!

Covid Protocols & Updates

Cambrian Community,

Our schools and community have been doing a very diligent job following our ever changing COVID protocols. We appreciate everyone communicating effectively with our school offices and following up on symptoms and positive test results.

With the cold and flu season upon us, we do anticipate slight increases in COVID cases according to our typical virus patterns this time of year. In an abundance of caution, our County Department of Public Health has adjusted our quarantine time period if individuals develop symptoms after testing positive. This ensures we do not bring students and staff back on campus while potentially contagious.

Possible Scenarios

  • Your student begins experiencing symptoms on a Saturday. When they wake up still symptomatic on Monday, you give them an antigen test and discover they are positive for COVID. The quarantine time period begins with their symptoms on Saturday. Communicating all of these details to school staff is very important and will help determine the correct steps and timeline for your student.

  • On a Tuesday, you receive a notification that your child was possibly exposed to COVID. Although they are feeling fine, you give them an antigen test and find that they are positive for COVID. On Friday, your student develops symptoms. Although they have been in quarantine for 3 days, Friday restarts their quarantine count. Communicating all of these details to school staff is very important and will help determine the correct steps and timeline for your student.

Below is our COVID Decision Tree that guides our quarantine timelines.

Thank you for your support keeping our schools healthy!
