We are experiencing firsthand the truly dynamic nature of our national response to the pandemic. The announcement at the state level to close all schools affirms the steps we have taken to safeguard our staff, students, and families. It also highlights the need to implement social distancing, one of the most effective ways to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. According to CDC, “social distancing strategies increase the space between individuals and decrease the frequency of contact among individuals to reduce the risk of spreading the disease. Keeping individuals at least 6 feet apart is ideal based on what is known about COVID-19.
We strongly encourage all of our families and children to practice social distancing to avoid gatherings of more than a few friends until this pandemic has settled down. Make wise choices about limiting exposure to those who are ill and remain within a smaller circle of connections.
We will continue to update you with any changes.
