I’m happy to confirm that in-person classes will resume on Monday, December 21 prior to our scheduled Christmas/ New Year closure.
The final Covid tests for all South Hills teachers and staff (including Mr. Jerry, who is only here after close) have arrived and ALL are NEGATIVE. Contrary to rumors that have unfortunately circulated among parents, NO South Hills student has tested positive for Covid due to the one staff member who was positive. That teacher is now cleared to be out of quarantine/isolation after experiencing only a minor symptom.
Thank you for participating in the Zoom Academy classes this past week. We were happy to see our students daily online, but now we are even happier to know we can return to our students on Monday to celebrate the holiday!
We hope that you will join us on Monday! We have heard from many of you that you will not be returning next week, or even for a few weeks after the holiday break, and we wish we could still offer Zoom, but all teachers will be in their classrooms full time as of Monday.
Thank you to those of you who offered such amazing support to us at this stressful time! Many have asked what we might need, and I can only say that we used an extraordinary number of disinfecting wipes to deep clean the school (still not done but by Monday we will be in great shape!), so any donations would be appreciated to replenish our supply. Other than that, seeing your smiling faces will be our best holiday gift!
Blessings and Gratitude,
♥ Ms Connie
