Good Evening SCS Families. This is Ms. Price with your weekly message for January 10, 2022.
Report cards went home with students Friday. You may also access your child’s grades on Powerschool Parent Portal. If you need assistance with Parent Portal, please contact Ms. Fleming, Data Manager. If you have any questions about your child’s grades, contact the individual teacher.

Unfortunately, our school community has not been immune to COVID cases. We send our best wishes to the families that have been impacted. If your family is affected and your child is under quarantine or if your child tests positive, please contact me or the main office directly. We will notify the teachers and take care of your child’s attendance. Again, I stress that you need to contact the main office or me directly. There is information that we will need to obtain directly from a parent. Also, if your child is experiencing ANY symptoms of COVID, keep them at home. If you are awaiting results of a test, your child must stay at home. We must all be vigilant in stopping the spread.
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
Have a great evening from everyone at SCS where we practice the 4C’s–Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, and Community.
