Hard to believe we’re ready for our final week of the year!! If you have not, please see this google form for all of the details and confirm how your child will come to school on the last day. In addition, each family needs to complete the permission slip sent home this week for medical/legal liability in order for your child to attend. Reminder: Students should not ride a bike to school on Friday.
5th Grade Promotion Ceremony
Our very generous PTA has been working hard to prepare for this culminating event for our students, thank you to all who have contributed!! At 11:30am on Friday, all parents are invited to attend our 5th grade promotion ceremony at Bryan Middle School. The ceremony will take place from 11:30-12:30 in the auditorium. All will then go into the cafeteria/courtyard for a small treat, and pictures with friends. Please see email from Meghan Scarsella to make a donation for the photographer who will be present. Students will be released to parents after checking out with the teacher. **The regular bus will be available for students needing to ride it home.

Updated Health Information
As expected, in the recent weeks, we have seen an increase in the number of students and staff members who have tested positive for COVID-19. We have also seen a higher than typical number of cases of the flu, strep throat, and other illnesses. Given the changing nature of the guidance, we wanted to make sure that all of our families had accurate information about how we handle situations across the District:
- Please send your student to school when they are healthy.
Whether it's COVID, the flu, or spring allergies, unwell students should not come to school. If your child exhibits any symptoms of COVID, we strongly encourage you to get your child tested. The District has onsite testing available at our Bridges Transition Center (appointments available through the school nurse) and there are a variety of community resources available. Additionally, many of our families have home testing options available.
Your child’s physician is always a great resource if you have questions or concerns.
- If your child has been a close contact for a COVID positive person you should monitor your child for symptoms of COVID.
Current symptoms include: Fever of 100.4 or greater, cough, sore throat, runny nose, fatigue, new headache, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, muscle or body aches. If your child develops any of these symptoms, please consider getting them tested for COVID.
- If your student has tested positive for COVID you should:
- Monitor others in your home for symptoms.
- Contact the school nurse so that she can connect your child with instruction during your child’s absence and develop a plan for returning your child to school.
Our goal is to ensure that every healthy student is able to come to school every day. Together, we can ensure that we meet this goal and end the year strong.
