Students in grades kindergarten through grade 4 will continue with in school learning as they have been. There won’t be any changes to classrooms and teachers until at least the end of the semester on January 22. Pending continued decreases in Covid cases in the school, community and county, we would like to bring preschool back to school at that time, on Tuesday, January 26th.
Students in grades 5-12 will return to a hybrid model where they attend 2 days a week in person and 3 days at home. The schedule will be Monday and Thursday or Tuesday and Friday as assigned in November. If unsure what days your student should attend, students in grades 7-12 can find it in Synergy under student information. Students in grades 5 or 6 can check with their teacher. Attendance in person is required for these school days scheduled in person. Please be sure to contact the office on the days when your student needs to be absent and if it is health related, contact the nurse. You can use the Covid reporting form.
With so many changes in who will be attending in person or at home, we need to start fresh with a new meals survey. If your student is remaining in distance learning, you can still pick up bundled meals for them. Pick up will be Monday and Wednesday from 4:30-5:30 at the MAC door (door 22). You do need to complete a new survey.
Students who are in grades 7-12 are sent a survey each morning they are in the building to ask if they want salad for lunch and a to go meal. Remind your 7-12 students to complete it. You do not need to complete the new meal survey.
Students in grades 5 and 6 will be given a meal at the end of their day here for their next day of at home learning. You do not need to complete the new meal survey.
For students in grades 5 and 6 who need childcare on the days they are not in school, you can email Sarah Funk. Priority will be given to those with both parents classified as essential workers. If your student is currently attending childcare, you should have received an email about scheduling.
While we are excited to bring students into the building for learning, we still are challenged with how to get them here and back home. The rules for contact tracing have not changed; anyone within 6 feet of someone for more than 15 minutes who tests positive is considered exposed and will need to stay home from school. That said, the more parents who can drive their students, the less risk those students will be to being contact traced. Thank you for your continued support.
As we created the plan to provide meals to families during distance learning, we tried to create better options to increase accessibility. We hope families with students distance learning will sign up for the free meals provided. Funding for cooks, food, etc. is contingent upon daily meals served so we are providing several options.
For PS and students in grades 5-12 who have siblings in grades K - 4, we will be automatically sending meals home. The survey will ask if there are K-4 siblings so we can cross reference our list. Your preschooler and 5th-12th grade students will receive meals. For all other students, you can complete the survey and indicate whether a morning pick up or an afternoon pickup will work better for you. We will also be packaging meals for 5 days together into 3 and 2 days so you don’t need to make a daily trip. Specific questions or to request meal send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Starting Monday, October 12, students at Healy can grab lunch for days when they will be at home distance learning during the hybrid learning model. Each morning, students will fill out their request form, and pick up their lunches at the end of the day. All the information has been shared with students, but a reminder from parents never hurts:) All the information in on the Lunch Grab and Go Slideshow
