I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your partnership during the past four weeks as we asked you once again for your flexibility, shifting schedules as we welcomed students back into our schools in greater numbers. I have spent quite a bit of time in each of the buildings across the district and have seen firsthand the smiles - yes I can see the smiles behind the masks - on the faces of staff and students alike! As we all look forward to the coming vacation week, I wanted to reach out with a couple of reminders. First, in our ongoing efforts to provide a safe learning environment, we will continue offering surveillance testing during the vacation week. All students and staff are invited to participate in testing on Thursday, April 22, 2021 at BHS from 11-4. You may sign up for the testing using this link. As a reminder, we will continue to offer weekly testing on Thursdays at BHS and pooled testing for the high school students as an important mitigation strategy. Second, just a reminder regarding travel out of the state. If you are planning to travel during this week, please observe the travel advisory issued by the Governor’s office.
I hope you all enjoy a restful and fun filled vacation week!
