Dear Parents and Caregivers:
We hope that all had a pleasant holiday break. As we approach the end of the holiday vacation period, we wanted to take this opportunity to bring you up to date on the status of our school as we prepare to return on January 3, 2022.
We have all noted the increase in COVID-19 cases and flu over the past month. The upwards trend is concerning and being monitored closely on a daily basis. Our goal has always been to keep our schools and programs open for in-person instruction. To accomplish this goal, we will need everyone’s cooperation.
If your child is experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19 it is important that you DO NOT send them to school. This simple step protects their vulnerable classmates, teachers, and other school staff. If in doubt, please keep them home. if you suspect that your child may have been exposed or has received a positive COVID test, then please notify administration, Mr. Martin or Mr. Pickle, or the school registrar, Mrs. Aleshia Crowe. MECHS administration will provide safety protocol and quarantine times per updated CDC guidelines.
We are committed to working with all of you to keep our students and staff safe. We monitor the situation in our schools daily and will continue. Our goal continues to be to maintain in-person instruction for as long as it is safe to do so.
Mr. Mike Martin and Mr. Mark Pickle
MECHS Chattooga Site Administration
