Dear parents and guardians,
We hope you were able to enjoy a break from your routines last week and had the chance to do something that lifted your spirits. It is always nice to have a periodic reset to catch our breath, regroup, and re-enter with renewed energy and optimism. The end of the year will come quickly, and we look forward to closing the year strong. This week has been quite delightful as we received information about student vaccines, moved to a five day per week schedule, and enjoyed a virtual choral concert.
Student Vaccines. The regional health network reached out to us to see if we might be interested in offering a vaccination clinic for students on an upcoming Saturday at the JSHS. They have asked us to poll parents to see how many students would be vaccinated at our clinic as a prerequisite for moving forward.
It is likely that the Pfizer vaccine will be approved for children between the ages of 12 and15 prior to the clinic so we are seeking information about potential vaccination numbers for both 12-15 year old children and children 16 and older who have not yet been vaccinated. Please complete the survey below if you are interested in having your child(ren) vaccinated at the clinic.
New Schedule. Thank you for helping to make the transition to our five day a week schedule a success. Your cooperation and support are greatly appreciated. Just a reminder that May 14th (next Friday) and May 28th are half days for students. Junior Senior High students will be dismissed at 11:30 and elementary students will be dismissed at noon. Lunches will be provided on these days.
JSHS Choral Virtual Concert. The High School Chorus performed virtually at the Honor Society event on Monday. Ms. Miller thought you might enjoy watching the video they put together. This is their first official performance as a group this year! Please enjoy listening to our choir sing "Over the Rainbow".
Have a great afternoon.
Susan K. Givens, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
