District Notes

From Dr. Laatsch’s Community Message:

When there is a positive covid case identified, a building-wide notification letter is required to be sent by local school districts per the MDHHS. We apologize if these letters seem repetitive. However, we are trying to keep everyone informed of ongoing COVID-19 cases in our school buildings while complying with this requirement. Please know that we will only send notification letters when there is a potential risk to our student/staff population because the positive person was in school during their contagious period. We will not send notifications when a positive is reported but the student/staff member was not in school or at school-related activity during their contagious period. These cases will be reflected in the weekly dashboard.

We also are posting all our known positive cases (and students in quarantine) on our SAS Covid Dashboard. It is important to note that for this school year, many students are able to “quarantine” in school by wearing a mask and participating in COVID rapid antigen testing that our SAS staff is overseeing, as outlined by the WCHD. Please refer to the health department guidance (flowsheets) posted on our district website. Reach out to Karan Hervey, District Nurse, if you have any questions about the MDHHS notification requirements or the health department guidelines. We appreciate your partnership as we continue to navigate the pandemic together!

Sweet Tweets of the Week

Did You Know?

Did you know that more than ever, learning how to code is a crucial part of understanding how the world works, no
matter what you do or where you’re from? Not only is coding a useful skill to develop, but the employment of computer and information research scientists is projected to grow 15 percent by 2029.  Codivate is a completely student-run nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids develop their computational thinking skills and teaching them how to create practical programs with code.

This past Friday we had grade-level community meetings where I shared the story A Little Spot of Kindness with every Harvest student.  We got little spots of kindness to wear to remind ourselves to be kind!
