December 3, 2021
Updates in this communication include:
- Thank you, Volunteers!
- Mid-Year Assessments
- Student Vaccinations
I hope everyone had a safe and healthy Thanksgiving Break. It is hard to believe December is already here! This month is always filled with joy and fun in our schools. Seeing the calendars of our school sites, I know there are many events and traditions that will be enjoyed by all. These will be undoubtedly more successful now that our volunteers will be back on campus to support! We processed almost 400 volunteer applications already! Thank you to all of our volunteers!
December is also a month that we begin mid-year assessments of student learning. Getting an accurate picture of our students at the mid-year mark helps provide a picture of how students are progressing on grade level content and how new goals and supports can assist them in the coming months. As part of our focus on providing a comprehensive multi-tiered system of support for all students, each teacher and grade level team is reviewing benchmark data to monitor the progress of children individually and collectively, refer students for intervention, and to adjust in-class supports. Specific information about your child’s progress will be shared on the first semester report card sent home in January.
If your child has completed both of their vaccinations for Covid-19, please share that information with us. There are two ways to submit information. 1) You may upload the information using this Student C-19 Vaccination Record or 2) You may bring a paper copy to the school office. Please only submit records after your child has received both doses of the vaccine.
Students are considered “fully vaccinated” 2 weeks after the 2nd dose of COVID-19 vaccine. A fully vaccinated student is exempt from quarantine if they are determined to be a close contact to someone who tests positive for COVID-19. They are not required to get tested during a modified at-school quarantine and they have no restrictions on extracurricular activities. However, both vaccinated and unvaccinated students will continue to follow all other modified quarantine protocols during the school day if there is a classroom exposure.
Students who have symptoms of COVID-19 are still required to get a COVID-19 PCR/NAAT molecular test to return to school, regardless of vaccination status.
