There is no school tomorrow, November 11 in recognition of Veteran’s Day.
This is a reminder to families that there will be an early release for students on Nov 23 and no school on Nov 24 and 25th for the Thanksgiving break. There is no preschool on November 23.
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 free at-home COVID tests for students and staff. The district expects to have them for distribution the week of November 21. The tests are intended to be used no more than 24 hours before return to school following the Thanksgiving and Winter Breaks. Testing is not required to return to school following these breaks.
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!
