West Seneca West Elementary PTA
We just want to wish the students and staff going back to school today and Thursday, a very happy and safe return!
Please remember - They see and hear everything you do and they feed off of your energy! Stay positive, stay strong and trust that those teachers we send our babies off to, treat them like their own. Whether you have a Kindergartener walking in the door for the first time or a 5th grader going back to a VERY different looking school...there are many adults there that can read eyeballs (yes, I know they are that talented....they have been doing it even before mask days!!) and know when a child needs a little extra attention.
FRIENDLY REMINDER TO EVALUATE YOUR STUDENT WITH THESE QUESTIONS E.V.E.R.Y.D.A.Y!
Parents/Guardians must ensure that their child can answer NO to each question prior to sending their student to school each day.
1) Have I knowingly been in close or proximate contact in the past 10 days with anyone who has tested positive through a diagnostic test for COVID 19?
2) Have I tested positive through a diagnostic test for COVID 19 in the past 10 days?
3) Have I experienced any symptoms of COVID 19 including a temperature of greater than 100.0 F in the past 14 days?
4) Have I traveled internationally or for a period of 24 hours or more within another state (other than Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or Vermont) in the past 14 days?
Please contact the school nurse or the principal should you have any questions or concerns.
In order to make this work, you need to keep your sick little love home if you answer yes or if they are feeling ill! Don't be a cottonheadedninnymuggins, please and thank you! This isn't a time for "here's some Motrin, see you at 3:30pm or go to the nurse if it gets worse"...this could result in more than a few being sick, fully virtual learning for just your child's class, etc. Whether you believe in Covid-19 or not this is still true even of the flu, strep throat, etc.
Let's lookout for each other right now! Remember - It takes a village!
