ECC Families,

Good evening. I hope everyone has enjoyed the weekend. This week we will be taking it easy and letting everyone get settled back in from the long Christmas break. We have a few new families beginning this week as well. The Coronavirus has not gone away even though I know we all wish it was one of the things ushered out with 2020! Our number of cases continues to be relatively low with only 14 students quarantined through the holidays for close contact with someone outside of school and 1 staff member. It is only with the help of staff and families and our adherence to the guidelines that we have been able to keep our school running smoothly. I and the school principal had a call with the Jackson County Health Department last week. At this time they have not changed any of their requirements for what is considered close contact, length of quarantine, or group sizes. We will continue to follow our current procedures. We are moving into the height of flu season and we urge you to continue to pay close attention to your child for signs of illness. We are excited about all of the great things to come in 2021! Make sure to read through the entire update for information about upcoming events. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

God Bless,


Catherine M. Koob
Director
