Julian Curtiss had the 4th highest number of students registered for summer reading (36 students) but those 36 students logged the most minutes of reading of any other school. 56,738 minutes in total! Julian Curtiss students also wrote 24 reviews in the summer reading program.
In honor of their achievement, these five students selected a book and we have purchased them for the JC library Learning Commons. We will place a nameplate in their selected book to celebrate their excellence in reading!
CONGRATULATIONS JC READERS!
Happy Friday Julian Curtiss!
I am so excited to share that this Tuesday marked the first week of in school COVID pool testing! I am pleased to say our rollout went smoothly. As mentioned in earlier communications we will not be notifying families of negative results, so no news is good news!
You may still opt into testing at any time should you choose to do so. Instructions on how to do so are on the GPS website.
I would also like to take the opportunity to offer a friendly reminder that children who are exhibiting any signs of illness need to stay home from school. If your child has 1 low risk symptom of COVID such as the following they will need to remain at home until they are 24 hours symptom free:
If your child exhibits more than one of these symptoms they need to be ruled out for COVID in the form of a negative COVID test or a note from your healthcare provider offering an alternative diagnosis.
If your child exhibits even one high risk symptom of COVID such as the following they will need to be ruled out for COVID in the form of a negative COVID test or a note from your healthcare provider offering an alternative diagnosis.
Fever of greater than 100.3
New onset cough
Loss of taste or smell
I am always here to help navigate which symptoms require which clearance.
The GPS Daily Symptom Self Checklist should be utilized daily before leaving for school. It is found on the GPS website and I have attached the link for your convenience. https://resources.finalsite.net/images/v1600868987/greenwich/vrdoomnnyw1oq6vnh4vp/GPSCOVIDSelfChecklistENGLISH-2.pdf
Many of these commonly found symptoms are found on the checklist and will help guide the decision if your child should come to school or needs to stay home.
Lastly, the district does strongly advise adherence to the CDC guidelines for domestic and international travel. We are working hard to document travel so please contact my office if you are planning on traveling so I can advise if the CDC recommends quarantine for your child upon your return. I have provided links to those guidelines for your convenience as well.
Thank you all for your support and help in keeping Julian Curtiss safe and healthy. I couldn’t do it without all of you!
In Good Health,
