Good evening West Yadkin students and parents,
This is Principal Cody Hemric. Please listen to yet again to another lengthy message.
Dr. Martin is sending a phone message regarding the meal situation. Meals will now be free through at least December. Students will bring home a questionnaire about internet service and devices. Please complete the form and return it to school the following day. It is important for us to have accurate information to adequately meet the needs of our students.
School pictures are scheduled on Sept. 9th for A cohort students and on Sept. 11 for B cohort students. Order forms will be sent home with students. West Yadkin students in the virtual academy may come on those days from 10:30-12:00 on both days to have their picture made. Students should enter during those times at the multipurpose room door and will be screened before entering. Forms will be available that day.
For future reference, when schools receive confirmation of a positive Covid-19 test, a letter will be sent home for the students in that classroom to make parents aware. Due to privacy, the individual will not be identified in the letter, but we want to make sure everyone is aware of a positive case. You do not have to quarantine due to this notification letter. If it is recommended that someone quarantine, the health department will contact that family.
As we continue with the A/B day rotation, it is extremely important for students to complete school work on remote learning days. Teachers will provide explicit instructions for those days and we want students to take advantage of the learning opportunity.
We greatly appreciate all of the students and parents continuing to cooperate so pleasantly and demonstrating patience.
Thank you, have a wonderful evening, and remember it’s a Great Day to Soar like an Eagle.
