School News & Announcements
Dear STEM Families,
A member of our school community has tested positive for COVID-19. Our first responsibility is to keep our students and staff safe. We immediately informed families whose students were at risk of exposure or in close contact, and will continue to support the affected family as they navigate this stressful experience.
We cannot provide specific information about our community member who tested positive. However, unless you are notified by the local Health Department, you are not considered a close contact of the affected school community member (defined as being within 6 feet of the person for at least 15 minutes). The school community member who tested positive was last in contact with STEM community members on Wednesday, October 28, 2020. Please continue to monitor your child for symptoms, and keep your child home if he/she/they show any symptoms or is not feeling well.
With the unexpected closing on schools across the state and country, many digital providers have made their online content accessible for students and families for free to ensure that learning will continue at home.To help you, I will share various resources over the course of the closing. Many of these are used every day at school in different classrooms and should be familiar to students. These are not intended to be a replacement for instruction, nor are they a requirement for students to use. The school closings do provide an opportunity to apply our creativity and critical thinking skills in new ways. These can include family projects, learning to prepare traditional meals and complete household chores, and more time playing outside at home as the weather becomes more and more springlike.I will continue to post messages, activities, and updates on Facebook and Twitter throughout the closing. Please continue to practice frequent hand washing and social distancing to keep your family safe. And, as always, take care of yourself and each other!All the best,Dr. Henry
