Strongly Recommending Masks
As we get into more cold weather, we strongly encourage all adults and students to wear masks. This will not only help with decreasing the spread of Covid, but it will also help with the flu and common cold. Thank you for helping us keep everyone safe and healthy!
 
TIPS TO STAY HEALTHY THIS THANKSGIVING

We care about your health when you are in school and when you are not in school.  Please follow these tips over the break to make sure you and your families stay healthy this holiday season:

  1. Protect those not eligible for vaccinations such as young children by getting yourself vaccinated for Covid-19 and Influenza.
  2. Wear a well-fitting mask that covers your nose and mouth if you are in public indoor settings. 
    • Children under 2 years old should NOT wear masks.
  3. Avoid crowded, poorly ventilated spaces. Gather outdoors when able to.
  4. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  5. If you are sick or have symptoms, do not host or attend a gathering.
  6. Do your day after Thanksgiving shopping online or with contactless pick-up.
  7. If you or a household member has a weakened immune system, take extra precautions even if you are vaccinated.
