Good Afternoon SHS Community,

This week is one of my favorite weeks of the year.  It is National Teacher Appreciation Week.  Tuesday, May 4, is National Teacher Appreciation Day.  While we celebrated our teachers on Thursday , we know that some of the most important celebration comes from you.  In years past our parents and community has showered teachers with lunches and more on these days.  It’s been incredible.  COVID has stopped that, both last year and this year.  But you can still help celebrate these incredible educators.  Please take a minute and email one of your student’s teachers! Tell them something they’ve done to make your student’s life and learning better. A short form of kindness from you will mean the world to them.

Our Food and Nutrition Service staff have been working tirelessly during the last year providing meals for our students and the community. Please help us celebrate these school lunch superheroes on School Lunch Superhero Day on May 7, 2021. These ladies are wonderful, they’re members of our community, and I want to make sure we’re celebrating them!  

We have recently updated the self-screening process for families which reflects the recent changes in health protocols. Each day before you send your child to school, we are asking you to complete the screening process for your child. This is for the protection of your child, their friends at school and our dedicated UCS team. Please screen your child daily before leaving or sending them to school. If your child shows symptoms of COVID-19, DO NOT SEND THEM TO SCHOOL. The revised protocols can be found at this link . If you’re not a direct exposure to a COVID positive person, a negative PCR test OR a qualified doctor’s note is required to return to school (rapid antigen tests will no longer be accepted) prior to the end of the assigned quarantine. 

Students must remain out on quarantine for 14 days from the first symptoms. If students are exposed to COVID-19 they will continue to require a 14-day quarantine from the last close contact.  That time period cannot be shortened by test or change in condition. Any student directly exposed to someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and starts exhibiting symptoms should consult their physician.

Principal, Stevenson High School
