Dear Families of the Hollys,

We welcome you back from our recent Thanksgiving Break, and we hope last week was relaxing and rejuvenating for you and your family during this unique time. We are so proud of our students at the Hollys and we appreciate your continued support and feedback during remote learning. We are so excited to share how robust our student attendance has been, and that is due to your unwavering partnership. You are to be commended! We continue to thank our teachers for their thoughtful instruction and the creative ways they connect and sustain relationships with our wonderful students. Our goal is to sustain consistent student attendance each day and minimize stress by adjusting our approach to better meet the needs of our community. We appreciate your insights and feedback. Please continue to reach out to your child’s teacher and staff so we can better meet your needs. It is such a joy to see our students’ beautiful smiles on screen during synchronous learning!

Not only do we seek to support your family’s remote learning experience, we also want to highlight other resources available to you.

From the Clinic

As the weather changes, remember we are heading into cold and flu season. To increase your immune system, follow these techniques: Wash hands with soap and water or use sanitizer frequently. Disinfect table tops, desks, and door knobs. Cough into elbow or shoulder instead of hands. If running a fever, stay home from school for at least 24 hours after it occurs. Contact a doctor if severe symptoms persist. Stay well hydrated and eat a well-balanced diet. Wearing a mask also slows the spread of germs. Here are a few tips on how to wear your mask correctly:

  • Wash your hands before putting on your mask
  • Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
  • Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face
  • Make sure you can breathe easily
  • CDC does not recommend use of masks or cloth masks for source control if they have an exhalation valve or vent
