Today marks day 77 of student attendance.  We are thankful that we have been able to continue in person attendance.  This week, we became aware of four students/staff who tested positive for COVID.  Thankfully, because of mitigation measures, zero close contacts were identified and no other students or staff had to quarantine as a result.  We have seen an increase in household cases.  We currently have 34 students out due to various contacts outside of school.  However, by Tuesday of next week, that number will be reduced to 23.   As always, we encourage everyone to stay diligent in social distancing.  If your student is with friends over the week and a positive case develops, anyone who was within six feet for longer than 15 minutes has to be excluded from school attendance for 14 days.  Our last day of student attendance before Christmas break is Tuesday, December 22.  We return on Monday, January 4.
