October Highlights

October 16, 2020
By Dr. Troy P. Roddy
Greetings Titan family!
 
I hope this message finds you well. With October half-over, we are beginning to feel cooler weather and the excitement of fall. Much happens around school over the next couple of months, so you might expect these weekly messages to be a source of information concerning those items.
 
First, now that we are in the second quarter, families are reminded of the change in Chapel uniform. This includes wearing the appropriate sweater or blazer option as outlined in the Family Handbook. Please check to make sure your child has the correct uniform.
 
Next, the 3rd grade is sponsoring Red Ribbon Week beginning Friday, October 23. Red Ribbon Week traditionally highlights drug use awareness and prevention. This year, we are including an anti-bullying/be more kind message. Each day during the week will have a special student participation piece to highlight the messages.
 
  • FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2020 – PUT YOUR FOOT ON BULLYING AND DRUGS!  Wear fun or crazy shoes and/or socks.
  • MONDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2020 – STOP DRUGS AND BULLYING!  Wear red all over from head to toe (at least 3 items).   
  • TUESDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2020 – PUT A LID ON DRUGS AND BULLYING!  Wear hats, caps, or crazy head wear. 
  • WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2020 – STAY EDUCATED, DON’T DO DRUGS AND DON’T BULLY OTHERS! Wear a high school or college t-shirt, jacket, cap, socks, or sweatshirt.  
  • THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2020 – BE STRONG, STAY STRONG AGAINST BULLYING AND DRUGS! Wear sports clothes/jersey, t-shirt, cap that represent baseball, football, soccer, basketball, etc.  
  • FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2020 – WEAR YOUR HALLOWEEN COSTUME ON THIS DAY! Costumes cannot include weapons (real or toy versions). No gore or overly scary costumes - make them child friendly. Faces cannot be covered by a costume mask, but face coverings per our COVID-19 guidelines are still required.
Finally, for clarity on our COVID-19 plan, if you take your child to have a COVID test done (you think she/he may have been exposed or are showing some symptoms), you should not send your child to school at least until the test results come in. In other words, once someone goes down the "test" path, that person needs to allow that path to see its way clear before potentially spreading the virus on campus.
 
Of course, this does not change our current plan. If your child has been exposed to a person who has a positive case, etc. your child needs to stay home per our guidelines.
 
Please reach out to me if you have any questions or need additional clarity.
 
It’s a great time to be a Titan,
