THE WAKE UP CALL WE DON'T WANT TO MAKE!
When there is a COVID case connected to our district, the contact tracing process kicks into high gear. Many times we are notified late at night or very early in the morning. In these situations, that will involve a phone call to parents/guardians starting as early as 6:30 am ONLY if your student needs to quarantine and will be unable to attend school. We really don't want to be calling that early, but we really need to make sure we reach you and also want to give you as much time as possible to plan accordingly for the day ahead. A district or school administrator will leave a voicemail if you don't answer and you will also receive a follow-up email with additional information.
BUS ASSIGNED SEAT REMINDER
Our school administrators and bus drivers are reminding students to sit in their assigned seats, and are monitoring the buses in order to ensure that the seating chart is being followed, but we could use your encouragement as well! Please remind your child of the importance of the assigned seats, as they are a critical component of our contact tracing process.
