It seems we have settled in as well as we can at this point of the school year and under our current situation. We have several students and a few staff out sick, but overall, we have been holding our own. Our attendance numbers this week have been up some from last week. Please encourage your children to wear a mask to protect themselves and their families.
Parents remember drop-off/pickup
- 6th-grade is in front of the gym.
-7th grade is by the cafeteria door.
-8th grade is by the entrance to the tornado shelter.
*Note: Our car rider line has been extra busy this last week. If parents could wait until 3:00 to 3:05 to leave their house or place of employment, the car line would not be as congested at 3 in the afternoon. Once folks stop trying to be the first in line for pick up, the line will begin to move faster for everyone.
7th Grade State Required Immunizations
7th-grade students need to turn in immunization certificates as soon as possible. Contact our School Nurse, Ms. Mary Grace Bean, if you have questions.
Temperature Checks and Intentional Distancing Continue
We continue to do temperature checks on all students, and the PSSD School Board voted to require all students and employees to wear their masks. Along with these measures, we attempt to limit the number of student contacts each student has during the school day. These steps seem to have benefited most of the school; however, we have had a class or two that seemed to be hit pretty hard with absences before the masking requirement.
We ask parents to provide medical documentation of positive tests and notes from medical professionals regarding in-home contacts leading to student quarantines. We appreciate your assistance in keeping our school community safe while we provide quality instruction to all of our students.
