Central Elementary News November 6

11/06/20

At Central, (and I believe the other elementary schools as well), we have had zero student-to-student, staff-to-staff, or staff-to-student cases. What we are doing is working, but we still need your help to continue on this trend. Here’s what I’m asking you to do:

  1. If you are sick or experiencing symptoms, please stay home. We can always have the nurse call you to assess your child to see if he/she can come in late, or if she/he should stay home. Although attendance matters and is important, in these types of scenarios, it won’t be held against you.
  2. Stay home until you are 24 hours symptom free, without medication.
  3. If you suspect that you have been exposed to someone that is COVID positive, please stay home and call the school nurse for further directions.
  4. Be careful of HOW you spend time with your loved ones. Socially distance and wear masks whenever possible. Try to remain in your family cohort as much as possible.
  5. Continue to do the daily screener. It is working!
  6. A big area of improvement is mask wearing on the bus. I have now been asked by multiple bus drivers to talk to the students on the bus who are NOT wearing masks. The students are doing a great job in school. Please chat with your child about wearing a mask on the bus as well. Many of them like to slip their mask off or under their nose. If we have to contact trace, we do consider if a child has a mask on/off, so please go over this at home with your child. I would hate to have to quarantine a bus kiddo when I don’t have to simply because he/she was in close proximity without a mask.

Thank you for understanding all of what goes on. We had a busy week! I HAVE FELT SO SUPPORTED by our families. I really appreciate that, and I hope you all know how much that means to me. These are trying times, for sure, but we are TRULY getting through them as a team.

A huge thank you also goes out to Central's PTO. They have been really busy this past month with the virtual book fair, conference meals, box tops, hanging pretty classroom signs, and getting Central Elementary T-shirts for students. We couldn't do any of these wonderful things without the PTO and YOUR support of the PTO through fundraising and volunteering to help out. THANK YOU! The next Virtual PTO meeting will be November 10th at 6:30pm.

This week, some students had a “Kidz Have Rights” presentation about Safe Touches and Unsafe Touches and Safe Adults we can talk to. Please review the worksheets that will come home with your child over the next few weeks as a family. As unpleasant as it is to think of, this is good information to be aware of and arm our kids with in case they are ever in a situation where it is needed.

Looking forward:

EDUCATION
REDEFINED

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.
