As the COVID cases surge due to the Omicron variant, we are grateful for our students and families working together to hold strong to our many layers of mitigation. The CDC has recently suggested upgrading from a cloth mask to a KN95 or N95 mask for better protection as proper masking continues to be an effective mitigation strategy. Please remember proper masking in and out of school and maintaining social distancing are the best
ways to keep our school community safe. We are blessed that our school’s vaccination rate is currently 87% of our school population.
Senate Bill 197 is a new law that went into effect on January 1, 2022. The purpose of this law is to apply current laws on teen dating violence (grades 7-12), domestic violence, and sexual harassment to all schools, including private schools. All schools, both public and private, are required to create policies, establish procedures for the manner in which school employees are to respond to incidents, training of staff, education of students in grades 7 - 12, and displaying of posters in English and Spanish regarding domestic violence resources. A discussion has been started with the teachers at a recent staff meeting regarding this new law and expectations on schools. We anticipate the posters will be displayed in our middle school hallway and classrooms.
May our faith give us peace, hope, and strength as we work together to build a just and compassionate world. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
