Clarksville Academy - Promoting Academic Excellence, Moral Integrity, Physical Growth, and Civic Responsibility

Intermediate School News for November 5-11, 2012

Note from the School Nurse

At 3:15 pm today the Heads of School and myself reviewed the absentee report and the sign out list to evaluate our illness trend and are reporting the following:

We are following all the suggested methods of reducing the spread of illness and have not had our absentee numbers climb to a percentage that qualifies closing school.  As we assess students who display symptoms of illness we will determine the measures we need to take and will follow advice from our state health agencies.  We are seeing our highest percentage of absentees in Intermediate and Upper School.  With our technology in these grades, it is advised that if your child is displaying any symptoms of illness, you keep them home until they feel better, due to the fact that they can complete their assignments via their technology.  Our numbers do not indicate that we should cancel classes for Pre-K through 12th grade at this time.  Please contact us via email with any questions.

 

Veteran’s Day Program

Our annual Veteran’s Day Program will be held Friday, November 9, at 1:30 in the school gym.  This program is our opportunity to recognize those who serve and have served our country.  We invite all parents and friend of Clarksville Academy to come and see our students of all ages sing as we salute Veteran’s and those who presently serve our nation.
