In tomorrow's Home Base Advisory, students will be asked to reflect on this past year as we head toward the one year anniversary of school closure and revised programming due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If someone asks you 30 years from now what it was like, what will you want to remember?

Check your family daily for COVID-19 symptoms
As we try to minimize Covid-19 in our community and our schools it is essential that parents/guardians communicate with school if their child is out, sharing the details of why you are keeping your child home.
Below is the full list of symptoms for which caregivers should monitor their children:
Fever (100° Fahrenheit or higher), chills, or shaking chills
Cough (not due to other known cause, such as chronic cough)
Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
New loss of taste or smell
Headache when in combination with other symptoms
Muscle aches or body aches
Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
Fatigue, when in combination with other symptoms
Nasal congestion or runny nose (not due to other known causes, such as allergies) when in combination with other symptoms
All Students Must Wear Masks to School.
No Parking on Cherry Street
While there is often a line at both arrival and dismissal, it moves quickly. Please be patient and use the provided drop off and pick up areas.
