I hope this finds you all well, and ready for the weekend to come. Here on the AISL campus things are starting to pick up. Events like last week’s Coffeehouse are starting to trickle in, and we are adjusting to a new normalcy, where we can still have fun, and stay safe simultaneously.
As mentioned in Dr. Menard’s message to the community last week, we did have a couple students come down with COVID recently. The good news in this is that, despite the unfortunate reality of this particular test of our safety systems, it does appear that we have passed. At the beginning of this week we welcomed back out Grade 8 students, and we will continue to monitor the health and safety of all students, faculty and staff, as we have from the beginning.
We love and value all of our children, parents, faculty and staff, and so we must continue to cleave closely to our health and safety procedures, and, more to the point here, we need to make sure that we are taking care of ourselves, and we are sharing information in a proper and comprehensive manner.
To this past point, please if your child, or if anyone in your family is demonstrating symptoms, exercise an abundance of caution. Additionally, if your child is staying home, inform Nurse Jennifer (firstname.lastname@example.org), who will ask some clarifying questions and provide this information to the Secondary Office. This means that all the information comes through a central source, rather than having to be pieced together from different communications.
Lastly, please be careful, and be vigilant. The weather is beautiful. Go outdoors and move. We live in one of the best climates on the planet. Back home it’s in the 30s (C) with 70% humidity, and it will only get worse, so I am counting my blessings.
Have a great weekend!
Dr. Rick Odum
One last item: This next week is Spirit Week in the Secondary! The Student Council has set up a calendar of themed days where students are encouraged to dress to impress. I hope to see all the students showing their leopard pride, and having a little (appropriate) fun.
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
