Dear Parents, I apologize for this late notice. Due to staff shortage from illness, we will not have school tomorrow. Tomorrow’s activities will continue as normal contingent on the weather. Reminder our New Guidelines are: If you test Positive , you are out for five days, when you return masks are required for 5 days. If you have a close contact, you will need to wear a mask for 10 days, or follow the directions from your healthcare provider. Again we will not have school tomorrow.
Congratulations to our Middle School December Cadets of the Month! 5th- Eleazar Martinez 6th- Colton Knievel 7th- Katlyn Hittle 8th- Lizbeth Gonzalez
Dear Parents, This message has two main points I want to emphasize, please see the bottom for those points. As you all know we have tried to keep you updated on the positive covid cases in the school. This is becoming more problematic as many are not being tested and are simply staying home when they are ill. THANK YOU all for keeping your children home when they are ill. This past Wednesday we had 9 positive cases identified, yet nearly 10% of our students were out ill. I have visited with our health department, local hospital and viewed a webinar from UNMC. All are sending the same message – THE NEXT FEW WEEKS ARE GOING TO BE TROUBLESOME, AND THE CASES ARE GOING TO INCREASE. I specifically asked if taking a few days off of school would help and they all stated NO. Points. If you keep your child at home for two or more days, we highly recommend that they wear a mask when they return to school for five days. It is our plan to continue with school if at all possible, knowing that dismissing will have no impact on our illness. However, yesterday we had 22 teachers, staff, administration out due to illness. If this number increases, we will be required to call off school simply due to not having enough staff. Unfortunately, there will not be much advanced notice for our families. Please make arrangements in the event we have to call off school due to staff illness. I will end on a positive note!! This surge in Covid is expected to be short lived in nature and hopefully we will get through this bubble in the next few weeks.
