Aug Prep Weekly Reminders and Updates 12/14 – 1/3/21

COVID WEEKLY UPDATES

We hope this update finds you safe, healthy and filled with the joy and hope of Christ as we enter the Christmas season. Aug Prep has remained an incredibly safe place for our students to learn and grow. Since opening on September 28 to our first group of elementary students, we have seen no COVID spread happening at school. However, we are concerned by the continued increase in COVID cases impacting our families outside of school - close contacts as well as the increasing number of our students doing virtual learning that have been impacted by COVID.
Please do all you can to continue to be safe and encourage safety within your families - wear masks, wash hands frequently, social distance and avoid gatherings. This is particularly hard to do during the holidays but, for the safety of our families, we ask our families to do all you can to stay safe and have your children follow safe practices. For the safety of our students, staff and families, we will continue to be hyper-vigilant about sending any students and staff with symptoms home.
