Clarify question I'm posting here instead of iccsd site -- if a child test + for covid, does only that child have to quarantine for 14 days...or their whole class? There is obviously a bug difference and could affect a lot - need to know before registration please!
Hi,
We are almost at the end of the school year(so weird) and my kiddos would like to send cards and small gifts to their teachers. How do we go about doing this?
Thanks for the help!

School Crossing Safety Reminder -- If you drop off your student in Windsor Ridge, please make sure there is a school crossing guard present before you leave. Twice in the last two weeks, we have had no crossing guard (once at end of day & once at drop off). Today, thanks to an observant parent, kids were able to cross safely with her help until a police officer arrived. PLEASE take the time to get out of your car to make sure the guard is present or come up with a plan with your child to give you a thumbs up when they see the guard. The PTA's School Crossing Safety Committee is continuing to work with our school and city to make sure these incidences do not continue to happen, but we need parents to also be aware and ready to walk their child across the street if necessary.

If you'd like to learn more about how you can help keep your kids safe on their route to school, join us at our next Community Meeting on November 18 at 6:30 p.m. to hear a special speaker from Iowa Safe Routes to School. Also, if you'd like to join the School Crossing Safety Committee, please email Heather Younker at [email protected].
