Dear Parents,

The sun is shining, the snow is melting and we have no students, faculty or staff out quarantined this week!! It is amazing! It feels like the movie the Poseidon Adventure when the survivors emerge through the hull of the capsized ship with the song “There’s Got to Be a Morning After '' playing in the background!

 

Still Important

 

Re-enrollment

Please complete the re-enrollment process as soon as possible. We are in the process of budget planning for next year. Tuition is our largest source of income, so knowing our enrollment is key to completing this process. I really appreciate your help! The re-enrollment fee has increased to $125 as of Monday, February 21.

 

Preschool and Kindergarten Roundup

We are looking forward to welcoming our new preschool and kindergarten students for the 2021-2022 school year. If you have a student that will be in one of those programs next year, please turn in your enrollment forms as soon as possible to help with our planning for next year.

 

End of Day Pick Up – Please do not park on either the East or West lot until 2:45 PM. Students have afternoon recess, especially with the warmer weather, on the lots until that time.

 

Lent Offerings

Calendar Changes

April 5 – No School, Easter Monday 

   

Reminder: Notifying the School Regarding COVID Exposures

Please allow teachers a day to get your child set up for online learning if they need to be out for an extended period of time. Teachers are working extremely hard to balance in class and online students.

  • When your child has been exposed to a COVID positive person or is sick, please email Mrs. Delaney and Mrs. Thompson with the information including their symptoms.
  • If children are out sick for just a day, we won’t be able to set them up online for just a day. We’d prefer they rest and get well so they can return to school.
  • If students are awaiting results of a COVID test, are quarantined or are out for an extended period we would like them online. Teachers will gather materials together and have them in the front vestibule. Because they are busy teaching, they will not be able to get them out until the end of the day or next morning.

 

Quarantine and Isolation Guidelines

 

  • Known exposure to COVID19 – 10 day isolation with a positive or negative test from last date of contact. Continue to monitor for symptoms up to day 14.
  • Symptoms – 10 day isolation with a positive or negative test from onset of symptoms and must be symptom free for 24 hours.
  • If at any time symptoms consistent with COVID-19 develop, regardless of testing status, the person should immediately start self-isolation and contact their local public health authority or healthcare provider. Furthermore, regardless of when the quarantine period ends, all persons should wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet from others, wash their hands, avoid crowds, and take other steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
