Welcome to this week's edition of TJ Family News.  What an amazing first two days of school we had last week!  Getting to see our Patriots back in action either in-person or on a screen was fantastic.  Overall both the Blended and Virtual schools ran smoothly and effectively.  Of course with anything new we still have some kinks to work out but we know that together we can make that happen.  Looking at the week ahead, we will continue to model and practice school routines either in the building or online.  Taking the time to establish these new norms will allow our Patriots to focus on instruction and ultimately be the most successful.  

We do have a couple of house keeping items today.  For families using our Express drop-off and pick-up lane, we ask that you remain in your vehicle during the drop-off or pick-up process.  Our staff will be happy to help get students into and out of vehicles.  In the afternoons, if you would prefer to buckle in your child, once he or she is in the vehicle and you are directed to move by our staff, you may pull into one of the number slots where you can safely exit your vehicle and take care of your Patriot.  For our virtual families, whenever you have technology questions or issues please contact the LCPS Technology Help Desk at 540-894-4373 between the hours of 7:30am and 8:00pm for assistance.  

As a reminder to our families, the Virginia Department of Health guidance states that if your child has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or if your child has been in close contact (meaning been within 6 feet of and for more than 15 consecutive minutes) with someone that has tested positive for COVID-19 your child should not come to school. Tomorrow and Tuesday we will be sending home a flyer from the VDH outlining these guidelines.  Please make sure you take a few minutes to read over this information.  It is important to follow so we can take care of one another.

Also, if your child has a fever, but not diagnosed with COVID-19 it is important to remember to keep your child at home until 72 hours have passed with no fever- including no fever reducing medication being utilized.

It is important for all of us to follow these guidelines to take care of one another.  Because as we know, only together, #WeAreTJES!  Have a great rest of your Sunday and we will see you soon.

With Love,

Mrs. Byers & Mr. Cleaver
