Pelion Priorities - Weekly Update
Watch: Updated DHEC COVID Guidance for Schools
January 9, 2022 - January 16, 2022
Dear Parents and Guardians:
*No School for Students on Friday January 14th and Monday, January 17th
Temporary Mitigation Measures beginning Thursday, January 6
With coronavirus surging again, and our community returning to high spread, we will put the following practices into place beginning Thursday, January 6. While we anticipate Covid cases and Close Contact quarantines spiking again as they did in early-mid September, our goal is to mitigate the PHS numbers and keep everyone as safe as possible.
Please remember to report any positive cases and close contacts using the following form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScSQf649nqmtbUQkdvzUF3JbATBVPQYlKNaGeDR5tgyYGQePQ/viewform
Beginning on Tuesday, January 18th - students will follow a High Spread School Schedule which will call for students to:
- Report to 1st block at 8:10am and remain until class begins at 8:35am.
- Students will report to PRIDE for an extended period to eat in the classrooms. Students will have the opportunity to eat in the cafeteria twice per week.
*This schedule will remain in effect while the county is in high spread. Once out of high spread, students will revert to the prior schedule for 2021-2022.
Please check out the newsletter, Pelion Proud Panthers, as we honor two ESOL graduates, our Q1 Honor Roll, November Panthers of the Month, and A Wendy's HS Heisman Finalist!
Attendance will also be counted this school year. It is important that our students are at school and on time each day. Students who have more than 5 unexcused absences could face a failure due to absences in their classes. Please remember that each 5 unexcused tardies also result in 1 unexcused absence.
We are also asking for your support in asking our students to have their IDs displayed on their body somewhere between the neck and the waste. As you know safety and security are our top priority and being sure we can identify all students in our building is a must. If a student needs a temporary ID, they may grab one before 8:30am from the circular desk at the front of the 100 hallway for $1. If a student needs a new ID, they may purchase one for $5 from Student Services.
If a student purchases 5 temporary IDs, a new ID will automatically be issued to the student.
We continue to thank you all for the support you give our teachers and staff! You, the family groups or our students, are the reason our students are growing and thriving in a challenging environment!
*Please do not send your student to school if they are showing symptoms or signs of being sick. Notify the nurse if your student does not feel well or tests positive for COVID.
