Career Panel Invitation!

 

On Wednesday, September 29, 2021 - we are going to have an in-person all school meeting to celebrate Latinx Heritage Month! As a part of the meeting, we were hoping to have a panel of Latinx professionals that would answer questions from our student audience about their individual journeys and careers. If you identify as Latinx and this is something you’d be interested in or if you know someone who would be, please respond to Grizzly Bytes #6!

Pandemic Links/Updates

 

My student is sick! What do I do? 

 

If your student is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 (nausea, shortness of breath, sore throat, cough, fatigue, head ache, etc) -- they MUST stay home. Additionally, students cannot return to school until they have a negative PCR COVID test and are 24 hours symptom free. A PCR test is different from the rapid tests that you can do at home. It must be done by a medical professional and results typically come back in 24-48 hours. Thanks!
