K8 Weekly Update August 15

Good morning,

I hope you all enjoyed the lovely weather this weekend! The lower humidity was magical.
At the bottom of this update, you’ll see our Covid dashboard. Mrs. Sealy (HS Principal) and I will include this weekly throughout the year. We are getting our numbers from the Covid reporting form I sent out last week so please make sure you are updating it as necessary.
That being said, this week may panic you a bit. We have had quite the wave going through our middle school. Thankfully, the symptoms are minor but it is spreading fairly quickly. We know this will likely subside by the end of the week. Our teachers will work to get students caught up once they return from quarantine.
We are working proactively with our custodial team and the local health department to mitigate the spread. All necessary precautions are being adhered to as we move through this new strain of Covid.
Here are this week’s updates and reminders:
1. August Board of Directors Meeting: The next Board of Directors meeting will be held Tuesday, August 23rd at 5:30 on Zoom
