Stopher Newsletter, March 9th
From The Principal
It's another great week here at Stopher! I hope to see many of you at our virtual PTA meeting tomorrow, Thursday, March 10th at 7pm. Family support is a huge asset of any school community, and I am blown away by our families' commitment to Stopher!
Last night (Tuesday, March 8th), at the JCPS Board Meeting, the Board voted to give Dr. Pollio authority to determine the district's mask policy based on COVID-19 community levels in Jefferson County. Pollio said he will follow the new guidance from Kentucky Department for Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention "very soon" and make masks optional in all JCPS schools, buildings and on school buses. The district has said they will send more detailed information to families today, Wednesday, Marth 9th. As of today, Wednesday, March 9th, masks are still required in our school. We will be sure to keep our families up to date with any incoming information.
