ANNOUNCEMENTS

Happy Holidays

Wishing you a safe and wonderful holiday week.

We sincerely want each of you to please enjoy this glorious break. Although we will not be celebrating with large gatherings of family and friends, we can still be grateful for all the blessings that surround us each day. Furthermore, making some small sacrifices now will get us to where we all want to be that much faster > 2021 pandemic free!  

We are asking that all of you be extremely mindful of your activities during the holidays. What you do over the next 9 days really does matter. There are small businesses in our communities that are closed and might not be able to re-open. There are hundreds of thousands of children that are not getting an in-person educational experience, nor play in sports programs that they so desperately need to remain healthy (both physically and mentally). Loved ones are becoming very ill, even dying. People are suffering in more ways than we can imagine. We must all do our part to lower the spread of covid-19. 

As you know, almost all of this is preventable if we each sacrifice a short-term desire for a long-term gain. Everyone is having to give up something, big things.  

Please:

  • Do not travel, especially out of state.
  • Do not gather with those outside your household indoors
  • Do not gather in large groups
  • Please stay 6 feet apart from others > 15 minutes
  • Wear your Mask
  • Wash your hands

Having our schools open for in-person education is a privilege.  We want to keep it that way.
