Parent/Guardian Newsletter 12/18/22

Dear Parents and Guardians,
The countdown is on to winter break! We are in the full swing of our second quarter of learning. This week progress reports will be shared, which is an excellent way to support your student's engagement.
As you may already be aware of from Superintendent Phalen's most recent newsletter, through the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, Belmont Public Schools has secured COVID tests for each student and each staff member in our community.  At Chenery we will send home a test kit on Wednesday, December 21, 2022. Please check those backpacks
Please test on Monday, January 2, 2023, no more than 24 hours in advance of school.  If staff test positive on that day, they will not report to work and the COVID protocols will commence.  If students test positive on that day, they should remain home from school and go through COVID protocols. Expiration dates have been approved by the DPH to be extended, and these test kits can be used for at least 6 months past the date on the box.


Please see the December Message from Your School Nurses in the Notices and News section of the Health Services webpage
I wish you a wonderful winter break. Here is this week's newsletter.
Nicolette Foundas, Interim Principal
