As We Wrap Up First Semester...
As we close out the first semester of the 2020-2021 school year, I just want to thank you for being our educational partners. We have been through a lot of changes and sometimes have had to pivot abruptly as things have unfolded quickly. Your patience and flexibility, as we work through this trying year, has made all the difference for our students and our staff. I encourage you to continue to reach out if you have concerns, suggestions, or questions as we continue to demonstrate that we are Oasis Strong.
The Oasis schools are discontinuing the taking of temperatures prior to the start of the school day (AM carline, bus/walker arrival). We have not found this measure to be effective for detecting positive cases. The CDC has also determined that it is not an effective mitigation measure.
Oasis continues to encourage families to monitor all symptoms that could be related to COVID prior to coming to school each morning. Your proactive actions are our greatest and most effective contribution to establishing a safe environment at our schools.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
