Dear Families,

Happy, happy Friday! This week we were able to celebrate the 100th day of school! we also wrapped up our final performances for the Honoring the Dream – Community Meeting series. You can watch the community meeting performance here.

 This week we celebrated Respect for All. As part of this, we filmed a schoolwide song Walk a Mile, you can watch it here.

 Please test your child using the two rapid tests sent home this week on Saturday, February 26 and Sunday, February 27. This serial testing makes the rapid test results more reliable (if you prefer to get a lab-based PCR test that is fine instead). Every child who has not had covid within the past 90 days should be tested over the weekend before returning to the building on Monday, February 28. If you child tests postitive on the rapid tests, or another type of covid test, please contact me via Bloomz so I can assist you. Teachers will not be available during break.

A few other notes:

–  As a reminder, there is no school next week from Monday, February 21 through Friday, February 25 due to mid-winter break.Classes will resume on Monday, February 28. The new spring afterschool clubs begin on Monday, February 28 as well.

–  Family conferences will be on March 2 and 3. These are part of a cherished tradition at CWS and your child should attend their conference so they can take participate in their own learning plans. There are no afterschool clubs on March 2 or 3.

– There will be a half-day of school with noon pickup on Thursday, March 3 due to family conferences.

– The LabQ van will be back on the Tuesday and Thursday on March 1 and 3, but only from 8am-noon. Students who get tested during drop-off will not be marked late.
