Mission Elementary Weekly News

Week of November 15, 2020

Dear Mission Families, it is so wonderful to have our scholars back on campus; they are happy to be back at school and engaged in their learning. Thank you for doing your part in ensuring a smooth transition from virtual to hybrid instruction. We appreciate you wearing your mask correctly and social distancing while you are on campus and helping your students do the same. As we start week two, please remember:
  • Safety first: slow down, observe traffic signs/rules, wait for a parking space and walk your student to the sidewalk; it is not safe for them to cross the road/parking by themselves.
  • When picking-up students, you must show a large sign with the student’s name and grade (the teacher's last name for kinder).
  • If you are picking your student by car, please enter through Carrey Road. If you are walking, please wait for your student by Gate 4; do not try getting your student at front of the school.

Thank you for your help, Ms. Robinson

What if Your Student Gets Sick?

Families are responsible for monitoring their student's health prior to sending/brining them to school by answering these four questions:

  1. Does your student have any of these symptoms? Fever (100 degrees and above) or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea?
  2. Within the past 14 days, did your student have close contact with anyone that you know has had COVID-19 or COVID-like symptoms?
  3. Did your student have a positive COVID-19 test for active virus in the past 10 days?
  4. Within the past 14 days, has a public health or medical professional told your student to self-monitor, self-isolate, or self-quarantine because of concerns about COVID-19 infection?
If you answer is yes to any of these four questions, please keep your student home, inform the school and contact his/her doctor for further guidance and follow these guidelines COVID-19 Guide for Families - Una guía para familias

Close Contact as Defined: A "close contact" is defined as any individual who was within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes over a 24-hour period before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to positive COVID-19 test) until the time the patient is isolated.
