Results from this week's pool testing were negative from all 23 classes that were tested. We have 91% student participation out of 588. We continue to encourage all families to sign up. This helps us know if we have any outbreaks along with having peace of mind that our kids don’t have Covid. To sign up your child up for Covid testing use this consent form and enter EVERGREEN-SILVER for the access code.

December’s character trait is “Caring.”
We will read the book, “Say Something” by Peggy Moss
Theme: If you see an injustice... say something! Say and do something. Move from bystander to becoming an UPstander.
Goal for December: Provide students with concrete examples of bully behaviors and discuss strategies for safely responding to verbal, physical, and relational bullying. Use kindness and be an UPstander to counteract negative behavior.

Recently we have had a lot of inquiries about extended vacations around either winter recess in December or February break. Though we understand over the last year or two travel has been difficult, we do have policies in place that we follow. If you are considering extended travel that impacts your child’s attendance at school, please make sure you understand these policies before making travel plans.
