Dear Families, 

This school year is literally Zooming by (boom boom cha!)! Here are some important reminders: 

Roomers~Students Participating In-Person 
Thank you to all Roomer Cohort A families who brought their “golden ticket” Travel Quarantine Roomer Agreement to school on Monday morning. For Roomer Cohort B students, please remember to have your child bring this completed form tomorrow, Thursday, February 25. Roomer Parents... we need your help! PLEASE complete your online Health Symptom Checker by 8:00 A.M. on the days your child(ren) participate in-person. This is a requirement by our District and County to ensure the safety of all.
On-Ramp Opportunity #1 Begins March 15
All full-time Zoomer families will receive correspondence from your child’s teacher by 3:00 P.M. today regarding On-Ramp #1 which will begin the week of March 15. Please complete the Google Form Opt-In by Monday, March 1. On Monday, March 8, ALL families (Zoomers & Roomers) will receive correspondence from your child’s teacher regarding the March 15th On Ramp #1 beginning March 15. For families who are already participating as a Roomer (in-person learning twice a week), Cohort placements will remain the same. On-Ramp #2 will begin on April 19th. 

Covid Testing for On-Ramp Students
Covid testing is available for students who will be “On-Ramping” beginning the week of March 15th. ALL testing will take place at Fisher Middle School in the gym breezeway. Be sure to register before arrival if it is your child’s first COVID test. After registering once, you do not need to re-register. Please mark your calendars now! If your child is already participating as a Roomer twice a week, Covid testing dates will be shared soon. Thank you for your patience.
Conference week is March 1-5. You are strongly encouraged to sign-up for this virtual meeting to discuss your child’s successes and areas for growth. There will be no 2:00-2:30 P.M. connection during this week due to conferences. Specialist classes will continue as usual. Report cards will go home by March 5th.
