We are excited and looking forward to another great year at GreenWood! Throughout the entire school year, GreenWood will follow guidance from state and local health department officials regarding school opening or possible closures. This year's return to school will come with some new protocols and procedures in order to keep everyone safe and healthy. We encourage everyone to get familiar with these documents, along with the accompanying protocols. While it will alter certain aspects of the school day, our goal is to maintain a normalized environment where students can learn and teachers can teach.
We know our individual actions and communication will result in the success of the coming school year. We encourage all to be mindful and positive. We will follow the local health department and state mandates, including Governor Herbert's recent mandate on masks. Guidance is changing and being clarified frequently. We appreciate your patience as we navigate this as a team. Please watch for email communications from the school and teachers. We are appreciative of parent, state, and local health department support!
It is important that everyone recognizes the role they play in protecting themselves and others. It is absolutely imperative that if anyone experiences flu-like symptoms (e.g., fever, cough, chills, nausea, etc.) they stay home. Our focus is to support students' learning. Attendance is imperative to be present with your learning, whether it is learning at school or at home online. Please make sure you are following school instructions for attendance.
We have placed a heightened emphasis on facility sanitation, including the regular cleaning of touch points, horizontal surface areas and the use of electrostatic sprayers to maintain a clean and healthy school environment. Hand hygiene is vital! We will have hand sanitation stations placed throughout our school and in each classroom. Students will be encouraged to regularly wash their hands as a way to remove germs, avoid getting sick and prevent the spread of germs to others.
The overall success of this school year will require each of us working closely together, listening to one another's concerns and doing our part to contribute to a positive, healthy and safe school experience. We appreciate your support and look forward to the coming school year.
