Updates and Happenings
- Vaccination update: The CDC has authorized the Pfizer vaccine for children ages 5-11. Parents should first check if their child’s pediatrician is providing the COVID vaccine. If not, an appointment can be made with another vaccine provider. Check this website for details https://montgomerycountymd.gov/covid19/vaccine/children.html
- Clinical trials in children ages 5-11 years found the vaccine to be 90.7% effective in preventing symptomatic COVID-19. Please check with your child’s pediatrician if you are unsure about whether to vaccinate your child against Covid-19. The more people who are vaccinated in our building each day will result in fewer disruptions to in-person learning this year and beyond.

We so appreciate all of your support this week as we made a quick transition to remote learning for the week. It is our desire to keep students in school moving forward as much as possible. The more people who are vaccinated in our building each day will result in fewer disruptions to in-person learning this year and beyond. If you are uncertain about whether to vaccinate your child, please talk to your child’s pediatrician.
As we enter into Thanksgiving week, may we be mindful and grateful for all of God’s blessing and favor: good health, financial resources, a supportive school community, family, loving friends, and salvation in Christ!
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. ~ John 3:16
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
