Imagine-Chancellor Chargers

January 2022 Newsletter

One School. One Vision. One Family.

Each new year brings us the opportunity to set resolutions for improvement to our daily habits and wellness. As we kick off 2022 with purpose and connection, I encourage all Imagine-Chancellor family members to establish and maintain meaningful goals that promote growth and happiness. Finding inner happiness is contagious and will affect your attitude and interactions with others...#positivity in action. Please take time and encourage others to stick to their goals. As we support one another, I am optimistic we will celebrate personal triumphs throughout the year!


Imagine-Chancellor will continue to shine as we conquer 2022. I wish everyone a healthy, prosperous 2022. Thank you for your continued support and let's continue to be Imagine-Chancellor STRONG!


With love and appreciation,

Ms. Standley

Principal

COVID-19 Dashboard

Each Tuesday, we will be publishing a Covid-19 campus update through our Imagine-Chancellor COVID-19 dashboard. This dashboard will provide families with the number of current, active COVID-19 positive cases at the school. Access to the dashboard is available via our school website under the Information tab.

COVID Testing Available for Students on Campus with Consent

The Department of Health has provided a school nurse to deal with COVID related concerns at the school. This includes the ability to perform a COVID test on campus for our students and staff for free. We must have parent consent to administer the COVID test. Below are the consent forms in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Creole. Consent forms must be returned to the school as soon as possible if you wish for your child to have the ability to receive a test on campus.

Great Appreciation for Outstanding School Partners

Imagine-Chancellor was overwhelmed with the generosity and kindness of Vertical Bridge for their $30,000 donation to our school playground. We are extremely grateful for this great school partner and their support of our school!
