Holiday Wishes from Mrs. Stapp

I can't believe it is already December! This month has several days that are different from our normal routine, so mark your calendar for NO SCHOOL DAYS on December 10th and December 22nd - January 4th.

Whether it's the scent of cinnamon, the warmth of fuzzy socks, the taste of frosted sugar cookies, a little chill in the air or extra time with family and friends, there sure is something special about this time of year. I hope that in this holiday season you are able to take time to reflect on the good things that have happened in 2021.

Hello everyone!

We hope that you all had a very happy Thanksgiving and enjoyed some time with your families! Throughout November, we have been working on our Bullying Prevention and Child Protection Units. We have really enjoyed working on this with the kids and teaching them ways to keep themselves and others safe. After Christmas, we will start working on social and emotional skills again. We encourage you to have some conversations with your kids about what they are learning in our second step lessons each week. It is some truly great content! As always, if you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns for either Miss Jalyn or Mrs. Metcalf, feel free to reach out at any time.

We hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas!!

Miss Jalyn and Mrs. Metcalf

Notes from Nurse Kayla

We are working hard to keep our schools healthy and safe.

Please monitor your child before sending them to school.

If your child is experiencing one or more of the following symptoms, please keep them home and call the school office or school nurse:

· Fever (within the last 24 hours)

· Body Aches/Fatigue

· Headache

· Diarrhea (within the last 24 hours)

· Vomiting/Nausea (within the last 24 hours)

· Cough

· Congestion

If your household has a positive Covid-19 case, DO NOT send your student to school. You will need to notify the school office or school nurse. TCHD or your physician will notify you of the date your child may return to school. If your student is in quarantine please provide the school nurse with a doctors note or health department note of their quarantine dates. If your student is exposed to COVID at school an email will be sent with a modified quarantine letter and instructions, please watch for these emails. Thank you for your continued help to keep our students healthy!
