Masks need to be worn on bus
The School District of New London provides a wonderful service in bus transportation for a number of our families. This is a quick reminder that the School District of New London has stated that students riding the bus must wear a face covering/mask. This applies to all students, regardless of which school they attend. The bus drivers also have the right to deny service to any students and families that choose not to abide by the face covering policy that is in place. This policy is in place until the end of the school year.
3rd Quarter Honor Roll
Congratulations to the students who made Honor Roll for the 3rd Quarter.
High Honor Roll
Scrip deadline April 30th
All scrip orders purchased by May 1st will be applied to the 2021-22 school year. Please get all your orders in by April 30th. Starting May 1st the scrip credit will be applied to the 2022-23 school year. Any questions, please contact the office.
Parents, please don’t send your child to school if they are showing any symptoms of sickness. Several illnesses, other than COVID, have been showing up here at Emanuel, and we want to do our best to continue to stay open. Unfortunately, many of the symptoms we’ve been seeing are similar to COVID-19 symptoms, which include fever/chills, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea. We do not want to inadvertently send someone home for a COVID test and have them quarantine until the results are back.
If your child is exhibiting any of these symptoms here at school, they will be sent home until they are symptom free. They also won’t be able to participate in athletics that day.
Thank you for your help in keeping our school healthy and open!
Emanuel Annual Pizza-making Event (Tentative)
The leadership at Emanuel (both church and school) is exploring the feasibility and possibility of holding Emanuel’s annual pizza-making event on Saturday, May 15th. No firm decisions have been made at this time, but discussions are ongoing. COVID safety precautions would be in place, but a key component is the volunteers. In order for the day to happen at all, we need to ensure we have a firm commitment from our volunteers before orders would be collected. Volunteers can be 7th graders and older. Both a morning and afternoon shift would be implemented this year, with at least 70 volunteers needed for each shift.
Even if the decision is made to have the event, if we don’t have enough volunteers for the day, we will not be holding our pizza-making event this year.
If you are interested and willing to volunteer, please click the link below to sign up by Wednesday, April 14th. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/805084caaa623aaf94-pizza
