News from Dr. Williams April 14, 2022
Message from the Superintendent
Welcome to the April 14, 2022 Edition of The Blueprint!
Today is the final day before we begin a well-deserved Spring Break! The district will be closed April 15, 2022 through April 24, 2022. Schools will reopen on Monday, April 25, 2022. I encourage everyone to take time to relax and to become rejuvenated!
Unfortunately, our COVID numbers are slowly increasing. We continue to request that families notify the school nurses and principals of all positive cases of COVID-19 in addition to any direct exposures whether in or out of school. Please be sure to provide notification of positive COVID-19 cases during Spring Break. COVID-19 absences may be reported by completing the Student Absence form found on each school’s webpage. It is very important that we work with families to ensure the health and safety of everyone.
Have a Blessed Good Friday! Happy Passover (Pesach)! Happy Easter!
Dr. Frederick D. Williams, Superintendent
