We realize many of our families and staff are currently traveling, or plan to travel during Spring Break. We encourage everyone to carefully consider travel plans in light of the guidance from the CDC.
Anyone who has traveled to (or through) a level-3 or level-2 CDC warned country is REQUIRED to follow CDC and department of health guidelines, to inform the school, and to self-isolate from the school and the school community as a family for a minimum of 14 days after you return. At the time of this email, the CDC has assessed all international travel as a level-3 or level-2 risk.
These guidelines include any additional travel locations that may be added while we are on break. We will continue to follow the CDC and local health department guidelines. All families and staff should be aware that the dynamic nature of the travel advisories may affect their need to self-isolate before returning to school.
Currently, all school sponsored travel through April 6th has been canceled. We are in contact with Grand Classroom regarding the 7th and 8th grade Florida Keys trip.
