This week’s Parent Update will include:
- Upcoming Events
- Health Information
- School Closures or Delays
- Heating Assistance
This is a reminder to families that there will be no school next week on Tuesday, Nov 8 for elections and on Friday, Nov 11 in observance of Veterans’ Day.
The district will continue to provide helpful information for families on the website, under Departments, Health. Please take a few minutes to check the website as we enter the cold and flu season.
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is providing no-cost, at-home COVID tests for staff and students. They will be distributed before the Thanksgiving break and are intended for use before returning from Thanksgiving and the Winter Breaks. Folks will be able to accept or decline the available tests.
SCHOOL CLOSURES OR DELAYS
Like it or not, winter is rapidly approaching! At times, I may decide to close schools, have an early dismissal or delay the opening due to weather or other factors. Any school closures will be shared through School Messenger as well as on TV and the district website. It is very important that you keep your contact information updated. Please contact the school office if you need to provide a phone number or email change.
HEATING ASSISTANCE INFORMATION
We have included information about home heating assistance on our website.
The district is still looking for Custodians and Instructional Assistants as well as substitute teachers and instructional assistants. If you are interested, please check the website and click the “Click here for employment opportunities” bar on the front page.
Take care and I hope you get the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend!
