News for the Community from Superintendent/Principal Dobosz – 1/15/2021

Greetings Community,

Hope you had a wonderful week. I am happy to share that Nurse Sam gave birth to her

daughter Addison Pease on January 11, 2021. Baby Addison weighed 6 pounds 8 ounces and is 18 inches long! Baby and mom are doing well!

Parent Zoom Meeting: This is an opportunity for families to check-in, ask questions, and hear how things are going at the school.

Computer Usage: We have noticed student computers being used to access non-school related websites. Please remember that the student computers are for school use only. I have included the link for the RHC- Student Technology loaner agreement families signed in the beginning of the year. Please review the loaner expectations. RHC-Student

 Technology Loaner Agreement Template Also, please make sure that student computers are fully charged when returning to school.

Masks: We are running very low in masks. Please make sure to send your child(ren) in with extra masks they can use throughout the day.

Worthington Preschool: Stay tuned for more information about our preschool reopening this fall!

Flu Vaccination: This afternoon the Massachusetts Department of Public Health informed districts that they are removing the requirement for flu vaccination for attendance in childcare/preschool, primary, secondary and postsecondary education. Preliminary data show that this has been a mild flu season to date, presumably as people have received their seasonal flu vaccine and have been adhering to mask-wearing and social distancing due to

COVID-19. DPH continues to strongly recommend that everyone age six months and older receive their seasonal flu vaccine each year.
