Welcome Back: Updates and Reminders

UPDATES & REMINDERS
We are so excited to have our Patriots back in the building! It’s wonderful to see everyone and be back to in-person learning. Our goal at Henry is to maintain a high level of cleanliness, keep everyone safe, and keep our students in school! Please read over the following reminders and safety protocols:

Parent Entry: Due to D11 safety protocols, parents are not allowed to enter the building. If you need office assistance, you are allowed to come to the front office to speak with Ms. Dani, but you may not go through the building to walk children to and from class. If you need to schedule a meeting, we are happy to do that via WebEx.

Mondays at-home: Mondays will be asynchronous at-home learning days for all elementary students in an effort to give teachers and classroom educators time to plan for both in-person and online learners. Please note that students will work at home virtually every Monday for the rest of the school year.

Please use the home health screening guidance before sending your children to school.

Should you send your child to school? If any of the following symptoms are present, keep the child at home and inform the school of symptoms immediately. Reach out to a health care provider about Covid -19 testing and next steps for treatment.

- Feeling feverish
- Chills
- Temp of 100.4 or higher
- New or unexplained persistent cough
- Shortness of breath
- Difficulty breathing
- Loss of taste or smell
- Fatigue
- Muscle aches
- Headache
- Sore Throat
- Nausea or vomiting
- Diarrhea
- Runny nose or congestion

Any student diagnosed with COVID-19, who is a close contact of a COVID -19 case, or someone in the household is symptomatic and awaiting a PCR-COVID 19 test result, should not go to school and should isolate or quarantine according to public health recommendations.
