EVE Update - December 2021
Dear Eagleview Families,
It’s December! How can that be?! With the recent weather, it certainly doesn’t feel like winter break is just a few weeks away! It was nice to have last week off to recharge and have the opportunity to spend valuable time with family and friends.
It really is hard to believe that we are just about at the halfway mark for the school year. We appreciate everyone’s hard work to maintain as much normalcy as possible. The COVID-19 pandemic is still alive and well, and our goal is to not lose traction and maintain high quality instruction-- in person!
With that said, to minimize the spread of the virus, we kindly ask for you to keep students at home if they are sick, and to please report any positive cases as soon as possible. This allows us to conduct our contact tracing process and hopefully reduce the exposure risk.
As mentioned in a recent district correspondence, the Covid-19 testing program has been discontinued. If your family is in need of testing, we would encourage you to consider one of the following options.
Receive a test through a medical provider
Find a state testing location
Register to receive free at-home testing kits through the state
On another note, traffic concerns have come to my attention. A few important reminders are listed below:
If able, we encourage students walking to school to minimize the number of cars. It’s a great way to get a few steps before the school day begins.
It is IMPERATIVE to pull all the way forward in the HUG and GO lane. By stopping at the bike racks, it causes major backups at the four-way stop. This is dangerous, causing folks to make poor decisions because traffic is blocking the intersection. Pedestrians are at risk because there is not a full view for drivers.
It is prohibited to “double-park” in the afternoon in the Hug and Go zone. Again, it causes back ups in the intersection and doesn’t allow for the intended flow of the lane. If the right lane is full, please take the time to find a parking spot and escort your child by walking. Further, students are walking in the line of traffic, increasing the risk of an accident.
Please help us get students to and from school in a safe manner.
Thanks so much for your continuous support, and for working together to start off strong. If you have any comments, questions, feedback or compliments, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email at email@example.com.
