Dear Parents,

COVID UPDATE

Although the numbers of COVID cases are dropping as more of the adults are being vaccinated, we are still having to prepare for exposures. Please continue to monitor your children for any sickness, headaches, nausea or tiredness. These are the new symptoms of COVID exposures, as well as the regular cold and flu symptoms. The best way to stop the spread is to continue to keep sick students at home, keep away from group settings, wear a mask when in close contact, and of course wash and sanitize your hands! Our families have been amazing! Although we have had a few exposures, they have been not been large outbreaks due to the diligence of our students, staff and parent community. Let’s pray that we all continue to stay safe for these last few weeks of school! Thank you to all our parents and families who have kept the safety of our OLS Community the top PRIORITY of preventing the spread of COVID!
