Returning to School - Update for 6th Graders
At Thursday's School Board work session, Dr. Brabrand presented that 6th graders at Glasgow, Holmes, and Poe who selected in-person instruction will have a return date of Tuesday, January 13th.
In-School Instruction – Form Needed
Parents/guardians who chose in-school instruction for their child will receive a health screening commitment form where you will agree to completing a daily health screening prior to sending your student to school. Forms must be received at school electronically or by hard copy before your child returns to in-school instruction. Students whose parent/guardian have not returned a signed form will be required to complete a health screening and have their temperature taken daily by school staff until the form is received.
