FROM THE NURSE'S CORNER

Dear Veritas Community,

At the start of the new year, we communicated that we would no longer send out school-wide emails reporting Covid-19 in our school. Our efforts to be informative remain important and we would like to make this same information available for viewing at any time. We’ve provided both the numbers and a graph through this link: Reported Covid-19 Cases

Please know that while this tool can be found at any time on our website (parent communication tab) or through the weekly newsletter, it will not replace notifying families and faculty directly involved with new Covid-19 cases in our students or faculty. In addition, please call me anytime for additional details. 

As we journey through the next few months of virus season, please continue to screen your children and keep them and their siblings home when unsure of the next step. Covid-19 can present differently in children 11 and younger and symptoms can be very mild and possibly confused with common colds and viruses. Our Symptom Decision Tree is in place for guidance, but I am available for direct questions at any time.  

I thank you, parents and faculty, for your diligence and for being the eyes and ears of keeping our school healthy and thriving. I could not do this calling without you. Praise God!

All for His Glory,

Monique Wack, BSN/RN
School Nurse

A NEW BLOG FROM DR. WOODS
"It has been observed and most difficult to deny that God designed us for fellowship. Our inherent need for community is woven into us. The eternal communion of the Father, Son, and Spirit created us as a community. Our first parents, Adam and Eve, and their children stand as the first family which was the foundation for the beginning of human community..."

WARRIOR NEWS

The Middle School Girls Team played Haywood Christian Academy at the end of last week. Our Warriors came away with a 34-4 victory.

Our Middle School Boys Team also played HCA, and won the game by a score of 41-17.

The Varsity Girls Team lost a tough game to Asheville School, but will have an opportunity to put a better foot forward against the same team this week.
