This afternoon for bus duty, I stood outside while it rained, but I couldn't help but smile at how refreshing it felt after the heat! I hope that you're able to be refreshed this weekend as well, whether from rain, or a nap, or whatever helps you!

My child tested positive/is quarantined. Now what?
If students are quarantined or have Covid, they can:
- First and most important, log in to Google classrooms daily to complete assignments posted.
- Be sure to join Reminds for your teachers that offer it! This way, if you have any questions or concerns, you can easily communicate with your teachers.
- If your child tested positive for Covid, he/she may be eligible to receive homebound services (through Zoom). If you are interested in this, please contact our counselor, Michele Welch, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We are working on a plan to offer ESS, where teachers can meet virtually with quarantined students from 3:30-4:30 to answer questions, help with assignments, and/or teach lessons. Once this is set up, we will let you know!
As always, if you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to contact us! Our phone number is 270-692-4578.
