Hebron Happenings

Week of October 18

Our mission: We are a community of learners inspiring each child to explore, grow, and achieve.

Message from the Principal

Dear Hebron Families,


I want to inform you that we currently have a long term absence in the office. We appreciate your patience at this time.


I want to remind our families that because our K-2 students are not old enough to be eligible for the COVID vaccine, they MUST quarantine if any member of their household is positive.


Also, I am repeating last weeks message in case you were not sure how we are handling staff absences at school:


I wanted to let our families know that currently the country has a substitute teacher shortage. The district is making efforts to increase our substitute teacher pool.


In the meantime, our Hebron staff is doing an excellent job helping support your children and one another. Typically, if one grade level teacher is out due to illness, quarantine, or personal reasons, we will split the class into other same grade level classes. We have assigned seats for those students to help us with contract tracing. This also ensures students are still getting the same lessons and subjects and do not miss crurial information.


If we were to have more than one teacher at a grade level absent, we find coverage amongst our staff to go into the teacher's room to follow the days schedule and lessons. Hebron staff is amazing and we appreciate everyone's patience and support in this matter.


We hope you have a good weekend, and enjoy our newsletter with other important information.


In this together!

Mrs. Henry

First and Second grade classes have began a fun new typing program in Computer Lab called Typing Club.

They can access it at home using the following link: type.lakewoodlocal.org

Each student has their own account. The username for first grade is their first and last name followed by 33, example: firstlast33. The username for second grade is their first and last name followed by 32, example: firstlast32.

The PASSWORD FOR BOTH GRADES is hebron. Be sure to always begin on your home row keys:)

October 29, 2021- Character Day

On Friday October 29, we will have a character day for our students. To maintain the health and safety of our students this will not be a public event, it will be integrated throughout our school day. Please make sure students are not wearing anything scary and they are not to bring weapons.

Covid Letter Clarification

When we get information about a postive case, the school goes through the process of contact tracing. We have to document students that are near the postive case in the classroom, bus, specials and lunchroom. We then submit those names to the Licking County Health Department. We do email a "Close Contact" letter home to those parents because at times we don't know how long it may take the health deparment to contact our families. Our letter is to inform you that your child CAN come to school if they do not show symptoms, or you can chose to keep them home out of precaution. If your chosing to keep them home please inform the office. The health department will send an email to those "close contact" students that will need to quarantine.


For the other students in the class, a "Classroom" letter is emailed. This is only an informational letter. The child is to remain coming to school, and just be aware if your child begins to exhibit any symptoms.


We hope this helps clarify the difference between the two letters.

More Covid Information

Hello! It has come to our attention that some of our parents are receiving a text message from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) asking them to sign up to report symptoms. The reason you may receive this message is because the Licking County Health Department (LCHD) is required to send information to ODH that is provided to them for COVID-19 contact tracing. Please know that you are not required to opt-in to the data collection that is requested. You can choose to participate if you’d like, but it is not in any way required.
