Holiday Quarantine - January 4-18
We have many school families and staff traveling over Christmas break, both in and out of the country. Along with anticipated gatherings over Christmas and New Years, we are moving forward with our planned Holiday Quarantine. School will resume on January 4th online via Distance Learning for only two weeks. In-person learning will begin on Tuesday, January 19th.
Please be sure to continue to inform the school office if anyone in your household tests positive for COVID-19 over Christmas break, or if anyone has been exposed to someone with a positive case resulting in the need to quarantine. Those traveling should plan to quarantine for 7-10 days before returning to school in-person on January 19th.
Thank you for your commitment to maintaining a healthy environment for our students and staff. We will get through this stronger and wiser. It has not been easy, but we have learned a lot during distance learning.
Let us all give thanks for the incredibly talented scientists and medical teams for their dedication to fighting this virus and ending the pandemic. They were all once young students in school. Just think, what blessings will our Presentation students bestow upon the world in the future?
