Sanford’s school nurses have released important health information for parents related to the opening of school, which includes the Covid-19 Pre-Screening Tool for School Attendance; flowcharts on assessing children with symptoms of the virus; information on what types of face coverings are acceptable; contact information for all school nurses; and more. The complete document is available here.
The YMCA has just released more info about the Distance Learning Support Program for grades 5-6-7-8. This program is designed for Sanford students who have made the choice to engage in the Hybrid model of learning this year. Students will be able to access the program 30 minutes prior to the start of school, to ensure successful log-in time to prepare for the day. Students can remain in the program for 30 minutes following the end of the school day, for additional support and guidance. All-day childcare coverage or distance learning support is not available on the “flex day,” Wednesday, unless the student is also enrolled in the YMCA’s before and after school care program. The cost for the distance learning support program will be $25 each day. Location: Lafayette School. Register today!
