Week of September 20-24
COVID UPDATES PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
- Parents/guardians are to send healthy students to school & keep students home when ill.
Parents/guardians will screen students for primary COVID symptoms prior to sending students to school. Students must not come to school if showing any symptoms related to COVID-19 and/or if they have a fever. Primary COVID-19 symptoms include the following:
Fever of 100.4 F or higher
Shortness of breath
New loss of taste or loss of smell
Students and staff will need to adhere to daily use of masks, maintain at least 3 feet of physical distance between students to the greatest extent possible in all indoor settings and buses and engage in frequent hand washing and/or use of hand sanitizer.
When students are at least three feet apart and everyone is wearing a face covering, students who are in close contact with someone with COVID-19 don’t need to quarantine unless they have symptoms.
If ANYONE in your household tests positive for COVID your student MUST isolate and stay home. Please contact the school and we will set up livestream for any student quarantining.
It is extremely important to be open and honest during this time, If we have students sent to school who are close contacts or household members they risk spreading the virus. The safer we can be, the longer we can keep our kids in person. Two weeks home quarantining with live stream instruction is much better than a year with everyone at home.
Please be mindful of playdates and gatherings. Our kiddos are masked while at school but if they are getting together unmasked after hours it negates our safety measures in place during the day.
Thank you for helping keep our community safe and our kids in school.
Covid 19 Positive Case Communication
HRCSD is focused on communicating clearly and quickly to families who may be impacted by positive COVID-19 cases.
If there is a positive COVID-19 case in a student’s classroom, that class (cohort) will receive a message directly from HRCSD, notifying the families of the positive case and identifying any necessary action items and/or next steps.
If there is a positive COVID-19 case in a student’s school, all school families will receive a message directly from HRCSD, notifying the families of the positive case and letting them know any impact it has on school operations.
Students who have to quarantine due to a positive COVID-19 case will be offered Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL).
Please note, specific names and personally identifiable information will NOT be shared in the messages related to a positive COVID-19 case.
Free Dental Sealants
Parents, teachers, and students at Cascade Locks School! We are excited about the upcoming FREE school-based dental sealant program taking place this school year. Parents save time in your busy schedules and sign your child up for this FREE program held during school hours at Cascade Locks School. Dental sealants on molars are proven to help prevent tooth decay by 80%! Helping to keep students in class learning and their smiles healthy for a lifetime.
Westside parents the permission form was sent home in your child’s backpack. Permission forms are also available at the Cascade Locks School front office. Please return those permission slips to the school indicating “yes” or “no” as soon as possible! One Community Health will be providing the dental sealants later in the fall.
