Superintendent's Message

October 1, 2021
 
Dear AWRSD students, staff and families,
 
It is hard to believe that today is already the first day of October.  Thank you for another positive and productive week of learning in our schools.
 
The state-wide mask mandate in public schools has been extended until November 1. The possibility remains for individual schools that can prove an 80% combined vaccine rate among all students and staff to make masks optional for vaccinated individuals at that time. In our effort to effectively track vaccine rates in AWRSD, I would ask all Oakmont Regional High School and Overlook Middle School families to update our nursing department on your students’ vaccine status at this time using the confidential form found HERE. While the sharing of your child’s COVID-19 vaccine status is not required at this time, we can only count those students for whom we have definitive proof of vaccination toward either school’s target of 80%. Pool testing began in all schools this week for those that signed up for the program. If you have any questions about pool testing, please reach out to your child’s school nurse. As a reminder, all AWRSD COVID-19 protocols can be found HERE
 
Attached is a letter from our Director of Food Service explaining the impact of global supply chain issues on our school cafeterias. Our food service staff have been very proactive in ordering additional product, planning ahead and being flexible and as a result, we are in a much better position than many other districts. However, we do anticipate the need for menu changes in the coming weeks and months and appreciate your understanding and flexibility with this necessity. Please do be reminded that breakfast and lunch is again free for all students in all schools this school-year.
 
Thursday, October 21 is an early release day for students in all AWRSD schools to provide time for parent/teacher conferences. Individual schools will provide additional information relative to conferences in the coming weeks.
 
Thank you for your continued support and collaboration. Have a great weekend.
 
Sincerely,
 
                    
 
Todd Stewart
