Dear Secondary School Families:
Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great week! Congratulations to the twenty-two newest National Honor Society inductees from the class of 2022! We are very proud of their many accomplishments through their first three years of high school. These students have persevered and overcome tremendous challenges. We look forward to seeing all that this group will do as seniors and beyond. Best of luck to our graduating members of NHS from the class of 2021!
High School Graduation Letter: A reminder to families that in the event of inclement weather the ceremony will be moved indoors. Due to current Department of Health restrictions, students would only be able to invite two guests to an indoor ceremony. If there are any changes to our outdoor plans, we will communicate them to parents/guardians as soon as possible during the week of the event.

Health/Wellness: **IMPORTANT** Please be sure to complete the daily screening survey before sending your child to school each morning. Your child should be kept home if they are experiencing any symptoms consistent with COVID. If your child’s symptoms are improving AND they are fever-free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medicine, they may return to school with a note from their doctor with an alternate diagnosis clearing them to return to school OR a copy of their negative COVID test result. We appreciate your help in keeping our school safe for everyone!
