Good Evening SCS Families. This is Ms. Price with your weekly message for the week of November 1, 2021.
Durham Public Schools, in partnership with MAKO Medical, is providing weekly COVID-19 testing at our school each Tuesday to help identify possible COVID-19 infections among students even if they’re not showing any symptoms. Research has shown such testing can reduce the spread by 50%, especially in large settings such as schools.
The testing is a simple swab of the nose and not the test that tickles the brain. This is the same test families can administer from home or at local testing sites.
This is a voluntary testing process, so a parent or guardian must register their student to participate. The link to register is included in the email version of this message, posted on our website and my blog. All testing information and results will remain confidential.
I encourage our families to register their students for this free opportunity. Together, we can keep our students safe, in their classrooms, and prevent community spread.
Register your student today with this link: https://home.color.com/covid/sign-up/start?partner=tf-dur-688-students
I’d also like to remind everyone that we must remain vigilant in our safety measures. Students must wear masks appropriately and stay socially distanced. Please continue to talk with your students about the importance of the safety precautions in place.
We look forward to celebrating 1st quarter Honor Roll students Friday, November 5. Honor Roll students will receive an individual invitation in their Canvas email with details. This event is only for students due to COVID restrictions. PTSA is providing snacks for our students during this event.
Mark your calendars for November 11 and 12 next week. There will be no school for students.
If a SCS family is interested in traveling to Italy with us during Summer 2022, the window to enroll in that trip will close at the end of December 2021. If you have questions regarding the trip being offered at this school, please contact Ms. Sims at Elizabeth_sims@dpsnc.net. There is also a link: www.eftours.com2395056zz
Ms. Sims looks forward to communicating with parents/students about with opportunity.
