We will be doing our first round of MAPS testing starting on Tuesday this week. These assessments are very important, as they give us an indication of your students progress over time. The assessments also help us to plan lessons around student needs to help avoid gaps in our curriculum. Students are encouraged to get plenty of sleep and to come to school ready to do their best on the assessment. Nacquq ( Jim)

We have at least two positive Coronavirus cases in our school. Close contacts are being tested for the virus and classes where the students attended are being required to mask up. Additional sanitation will be in effect school wide and social distancing will be in effect in the positive students classrooms. At this time, masks will be optional for students in classes not having positive cases. We are closely monitoring the situation and will keep everyone in the loop via Thrillshare as we move forward. Congratulations to Ally Jackson for being elected to the AEC Board. Six people tied for the second open seat. They will be contacted in the morning to see if they want to participate in a runoff election. Nacquq (Jim)

The past couple of days days have been very stressful with all of the wind, near record storm surges and rain! However, the school was spared much of the damage. We do have some debris on the playground and on the lower road leading to the the school. After looking at the overall situation with regard to having school tomorrow, I have decided that the positive factors outweigh the negative ones. We will have school as usual tomorrow. However, students will not be using any outside play areas (basketball court and playgrounds), until the area has been cleared of the debris. I would also urge everyone to be especially cautious when driving or walking on the lower road in particular. Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow! :)

I want to urge everyone to use extreme caution during the upcoming storm! Children, in particular should be indoors during the high winds, as they can literally be blown aware or be dragged along the ground and severely injured. Widespread flooding is also a very real possibility. Stay away from low lying areas and be aware of flying wind blown objects As well as downed power lines. Be prepared for possible power outages as well! At this time, we are still scheduled for a regular school day on Monday. If that changes, we will everyone know. (Nacquq) Jim Have a safe weekend and make the most of this possible storm of the decade.
