Bobcat Broadcast

March 26, 2021

A Message from Mrs. Caudill


As a reminder we want you to Rest, Relax, Rejuvenate over this break! We believe school breaks should be just that - a brief reprieve from school responsibilities like homework, special projects, planning, and grading. It is a time to reconnect with loved ones without the stress of school work creeping in. I will be leading by example and there will be no Bobcat Broadcast next week due to Spring Break. Please look for a new Broadcast on Friday, April 9. I hope each of you have a relaxing break full of family, fun and togetherness.


Stay Safe,

Devon Caudill

lease Remember to Use the COVID-19 Student Screener EACH DAY When We Resume Classes after Spring Break

As you prepare to send students back to in-person learning after spring break, please remember to use the COVID-19 Student Screener EACH DAY before your child comes to school. REMINDER: If you travel internationally, please follow the quarantine and testing requirements found in Question 3 on this screener.


If you traveled domestically or otherwise visited friends and family outside of your regular close contact ‘bubble’ over spring break, please consider participating in the FREE Drive-Thru COVID Testing at NHS on 4/4/2021 or test at a convenient location for you. NPS is dedicated to providing in-person learning and would like your help in ensuring that we have a safe space for our students to learn and grow.

CLOSE CONTACT QUARANTINE UPDATE

As you may be aware, the Wayne County Health Department has adjusted the quarantine requirements for students identified as being a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case to 10 days (from the previous requirements of 14). Parents should continue to monitor their child for symptoms and not send them to school where symptoms are present. Additionally, if your child has had COVID-19 in the past 5 months (evidenced by a positive PCR), quarantine is not required. We began following these new requirements immediately and notified all families where an identified close contact quarantine could be shortened under these new rules.


SCREENING FORM UPDATED

Please remember to use the Wayne County Health Department COVID-19 Daily STUDENT Symptom Screening Tool (2.16.2021) each morning to determine if your child can come to school. If your child is a close contact to a positive case, please plan on a 10 day quarantine as the 14 day quarantine will only be required in circumstances where symptoms are present or as required by the health dept or your child's medical care provider.


We thank you in advance for being mindful of these requirements, as they keep your children and ALL of our children and staff safe.
