Huffman Headlines

Message from Principal Hickox

Dear Huffman families,


It sure does feel like spring with these temperatures lately! Thank you for your patience as we navigate ice days and school closures. We have a four day week with no school on Friday, and then next week is Spring Break.


It is time for the annual School Climate and Connectedness Survey. Please follow the link to share your thoughts and impressions of our school climate at Huffman. This survey provides valuable data that we use as a staff to evaluate our program and inform our future goals. This year it seems even more important as we have lots of new staff and we are working our way back to normalcy after two years of pandemic disruptions. I truly appreciate you taking the time to fill it out.


As we move into spring, I am looking forward to more activities where families can come into the building. It has been nice seeing volunteers back in classrooms. If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity, please contact your child's teacher or check this newsletter as we always have ways that you can help out at Huffman.


Respectfully,


Molly Hickox, Principal

Huffman Elementary School

New Mask Guidance

GENERAL MASKING GUIDANCE

ASD is moving to optional mask wear for staff and parent-informed optional mask wear for students in ASD facilities. ASD will continue to encourage staff and students to wear masks, especially if they present with any respiratory symptoms outside of a COVID diagnosis.

Students may be asked to wear a mask if symptomatic and waiting for parent pick up.

Consistent with Federal regulations, employees and students on school buses will be required to wear masks until further notice.

MASKING AFTER ISOLATION

ASD follows CDC guidance, staff and students returning from isolation following a positive COVID diagnosis will wear a mask days 6-10.

CLOSE CONTACT

ASD will not require tracking or communicating of close contacts. We will continue to encourage the use of masks, but will honor family choice in all areas except return from isolation.

I-Did-A-Read

I-Did-A-Read, our annual readathon and fundraiser, kicks off Monday, March 14! Keep an eye out for informational packets to come with students when they return from Spring break! Parents, please assist students with calculating miles, initial, and return reading logs daily. This allows kids to advance their husky to the next checkpoint. Thanks for encouraging reading at Huffman Elementary.
