  • EMES Remote Feb 17th -19th

    Message from Principal Lyford on Feb 16th

    Good Evening, EMES Families -

    By now you have heard from Superintendent Olkowski that a member of the EMES community has tested positive for Covid-19.  As a result, EMES will be remote for the remainder of this week.  There are a few important details that I want to share with you this evening…

    1. If your child is considered a close contact to this individual, you will hear from Nurse Dave, Nurse Elizabeth, or myself by tomorrow morning.  We will explain to you what you and your child need to do during the 7-day quarantine period.  If you are not contacted by one of us, your child is not considered a close contact.

    2. Tomorrow, Wednesday, will be the day that your students will put their emergency remote learning packets to use.  All students should have these and know where they are.  Classroom teachers will be taking attendance and checking in with students tomorrow, either by zoom or by phone, but other than that, students will be working independently until the 12:30 dismissal time.  Staff will use tomorrow to plan and prepare for remote instruction on Thursday and Friday.  Thursday and Friday will look very similar to today.

    3. I know some students did not bring their Chromebook/tablet chargers home with them as they thought we’d only be remote for one day.  Your child’s classroom teacher will work with you to set up a plan for coming to get their charger if needed.  The building will not be closed and there will be individuals in the building who can help get chargers to families. 

    4. EMES will be offering breakfast and lunch to students during this period of remote learning.  If you are interested in participating in this, please complete the google form BY 9:30 tomorrow morning.  Food will be available for pick up in front of the building beginning at 11:30 tomorrow morning.  We will provide tomorrow’s lunch and Thursday’s breakfast tomorrow.  On Thursday at 11:30, we will have Thursday’s lunch and Friday’s breakfast and lunch available for pick up.  You MUST order food for all three days.

    I am so sorry that we will not be able to be in person for the remainder of this week - we WILL make up our EMES Spirit Week at some point!  I know remote learning is challenging in many ways for families and am thankful that we have made it to this point without having to enact these plans.  However, we want to ensure the safety and well being of all of our community and are taking these steps to avoid any spread of the virus this week. 

    Thank you for understanding and I look forward to seeing your beautiful children in person again on Wednesday, March 3rd.
