Good Evening SCS Families. This is Ms. Price with your weekly message for January 17, 2022.
School will be closed tomorrow in recognition of the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday. Students will not attend on Tuesday due to the teacher workday. Students will return to school Wednesday, January 19. Our calendar is different than traditional schools so please be sure to have students ready to return to school on Wednesday!

I’d like to remind you that 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. There will be no testing this week. Testing will resume Tuesday, January 25.
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.
