Principal Newsletter – 4/29/22

Hello Maverick Families:

Teacher Appreciation Week!! 

Next week we honor the incredible McClure teaching staff who, I think we can all agree, have carried our kids through two tough years of this pandemic. They kept smiles on their faces, worked hard to support kids academically, and opened up space to build community, connections and safe spaces for kids.  I hope you and your McClure student have an opportunity at some point next week to thank a teacher (or six!) for the care this extraordinary staff puts in each and every day for our kids.

Desperate Need of Returned Extra Chargers!

Please do a quick check with your McClure student (and their room!) this weekend to see if there are extra laptop chargers lying around. We are almost all out. Students and families are responsible for a $48 fee if the chargers checked out to them are not returned. We are growing worried about supporting our kids if we don’t have extra chargers to check out. Many students have checked out multiple chargers. Thank you for checking on this and returning extra school-issued chargers!

Water!

Accepting any and all bottled water donations!!! Thank you in advance!

Covid Case Updates at McClure:

SPS has updated the middle and high school COVID-19 notification process in alignment with guidance from Public Health. Positive student and staff COVID cases are updated weekly on our district dashboard

This week, McClure Middle School had 2 confirmed cases. 

Please remember, the number of confirmed cases represent community transmission; exposures may not have occurred within our schools. The school nurse or designee will notify families when their student with a medically fragile or complex health condition has been exposed to COVID-19 in the school setting.

Protect yourself and your student from COVID-19

If there is a significant increase in cases at our school or an outbreak, more detailed information and resources will be communicated. The district’s COVID response team continues to work in partnership with Public Health to monitor cases and mitigate transmission.
