We are fortunate that our staff at Haggard are healthy and here at school.
We know the Omicron variant of Covid-19 is highly transmissible.
- We want our students at school to stay healthy and be here so they can learn.
- We need our teachers healthy and well so they can be here to teach and care for our students each day.
It is difficult to determine if a child may have allergies or a cold; however, if they have any symptoms please keep them home and have them tested or see their doctor to rule out Covid.
If there is a family member in your home who has tested positive for Covid-19, please consider keeping your child home as a close contact. Let's limit the transmission at school for our students, our staff, and our families as much as possible. Our hope is this will peak in the next three to four weeks.
Below is information provided for our parents from the District's update.
