Good Evening Sci High Families,

Week 2 of Mission Possible is approaching. Our students demonstrated a great deal of responsibility and understanding when it came to being on campus for in-person learning all last week. Without a doubt, these are challenging times but our students are showing us that we will make it through.

Out of an abundance of caution, we are asking families to help us with:

  • reinforcing the importance of wearing face coverings while on campus
  • quarantining students who test positive. If your student tests positive, please notify the school as soon as possible.
  • quarantining students who are close contacts of a student who tests positive if they are unvaccinated and notify the school as soon as possible.

If a student is quarantining they must contact their teachers via email for assignments. All students should have this contact information in a syllabus. Teachers' email addresses can also be accessed on the school's website at the following link: https://noscihigh.org/faculty-staff.

Sci High will continue to contact families of students who are positive and are close contacts of students who test positive. Families interested in getting vaccinated can do so on campus by scheduling an appointment with our School-Based Health Center. Consider getting your student vaccinated. This will also reduce the chance of getting ill or getting others in our community ill.

Please help us keep our community safe! Mask and vaccinations -- they work!

Best regards,

Monique G. Cola, Ph.D.

Head of School
