Greetings FWAFA Family,
One of our biggest traditions here at FWAFA is just around the corner and that is Kids Take Over the School. The online auction begins at noon tomorrow and ends Thursday evening. If you are new to us, KTOTS is when teachers auction themselves off for their students to spend the day being the teacher or staff member. It's a great day of fun and community spirit. For more details and to get in on the action, check out our FWAFA PTSO Facebook page.
As COVID-19 rates continue to remain high in our area, I want to remind our families to help us keep everyone healthy by erring on the side of caution if someone in your household or your student is exhibiting symptoms that resemble COVID-19. If you would like to talk through your individual scenario with our nurse, please don't hesitate to call the school and ask to speak with Nurse Kay or you can send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students can switch to At-Home Learning to quarantine or wait on test results at any time, and then switch back after the quarantine period is complete.
Also, you can visit our COVID-19 Information Center updated daily on our website for information on the current number of cases, the cumulative number of cases, and recovered cases that have been reported on our campus as well as information on our definition of Close Contact and contact tracing procedures.
