The district would like to remind everyone to maintain the strong habits we have developed as a school community:
- Receive the COVID vaccine if you are eligible.
- Avoid large and small group gatherings such as parties which bring people from different households into contact with each other.
- Wear masks at all times when out in public.
- Wash hands with soap and water frequently and thoroughly. Use hand sanitizer when soap and water is not available.
- Monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and in the event someone is sick, stay at home.
- Remain at home while waiting for COVID-19 test results.
