REMINDERS (Repeated from Prior Updates)

School Safety Updates

In the midst of the news this week about threats to schools and the swirl of concerns, here are a couple of critical safety reminders that are within our control to ensure safety in our community:



  • Please follow all traffic signs and guidance around our school, especially at arrival and dismissal; Howard Ave is one way at pick-up and drop-off, and cars MAY NOT proceed around the signage.
  • Please note that ALL adults must enter our building by checking in with Mrs. Blum in the front office; while all external doors are locked and closed, occasionally someone will attempt to gain entry through another door -- we route ALL through the main office for safety.
  • Please be mindful of using your cell phone while driving in/around our community as our students walk to/from school.
  • Please continue to practice our Covid safety protocols, referring to our Flowchart (at the end of this newsletter weekly) as you consider whether or not your child should come to school. When it doubt, reach out to our nursing team and/or the front office. It's all of our efforts, together, that keep us safe and sound.

Vaccination Reminders: from Dr. Barnhart's Weekly Update

Vaccinated individuals do not have to quarantine following Close Contact unless they are also symptomatic. If they are deemed to be in Close Contact AND they are symptomatic, individuals may return to school following quarantine or after producing a negative COVID PCR test from an outside provider. Parents may still upload their child’s vaccination card using this LINK.
