Sickness and Return Policy:

Just a reminder to our families about the return to school policy. If your child(ren) is sent home from school and exhibits any symptoms of COVID-19, the district’s policy is for families to take the child to see their primary care physician. The doctor’s office can decide to either administer a covid test (PCR) or write an alternative diagnosis on the return to school form (which can be found here: Return to School Letter). The return to school form must be received by our school prior to the student returning to Genet. This form can be faxed or emailed to Mrs. Condo or myself.

If you have any questions regarding this policy, please feel free to reach out to our nurse, Mrs. Condo, or myself at Genet. I appreciate your understanding regarding this matter.

Winter Coat Drive:

CoNSERNS-U is looking to provide winter coats to families in need. If interested, please see the flyer attached: Winter Coats for Kids.

CoNSERNS-U Christmas Store:

I wish you all the best this coming week!  Thank you for your continued support of Genet!

All the best,

Wayne Grignon
