This has been a whirlwind week of information coming from all directions! By now you have received the letter informing you that we will continue with in-person learning. Every day we are able to have our students in the building is a blessing!
Here is an excerpt from a Cleveland Clinic article with suggestions for Halloween:
“Keep kids safe this Halloween
This year choose lower-risk festivities, like having a Halloween scavenger hunt at home or carving pumpkins with neighbors outside at a safe distance. If your child plans on trick-or-treating, make sure they wear a face mask, avoid close contact with others, wash their hands before and afterward, and avoid picking candy directly from a shared bowl.”
I am looking forward to the PTO Halloween car parade tomorrow night. Thank you, PTO, for providing a safe and fun alternative to Trunk & Treat! The PTO volunteers have worked very hard filling treat bags to make this a special event. Switching to activities such as these will help us stay open.
Tomorrow marks the end of the first quarter. As we begin second quarter, you will be given reminders about safety protocols and for those continuing as distance learners, reminders about school expectations. I am happy to see that there are mornings where every child entering the building has his/her mask. The system we have for all of our students is working. Thank you for your efforts in keeping our children safe and successful with their learning.
Let us continue to pray for each other and for peace in the world!
