Due to the COVID surge, we will not be offering after school activities other than the BASE program until further notice. In addition all field trips will move to a virtual format to support student safety and staffing needs.
We have made special arrangements to provide return to school testing for staff and students who are in the testing roster. The Shield test will be administered by our partners at Passport Health as a preventative measure in order to have test results prior to students return to school after break on Monday January 10th. Staff and students who are on the roster may choose to come in during those hours to be tested. We encourage our students to come in for this quick experience. Parents are asked to wait for their child while they are being tested. If your child is currently not on the testing roster and you would like your student to be added to the roster to take advantage of this free service, please notify us no later than 1/5/2022 and return the Voluntary Shield Testing Rostering Permission Form to us. While advance notification is not required, it would be helpful to know who will be participating on January 7th. Please email the email@example.com
to let us know.
We would like to thank Passport Health and the Shield organization for making this special testing opportunity possible.
