Cambridge Weekly Update-May 3-7, 2021
Dear Cambridge Families,
This week during our staff and teacher appreciation we will be honoring all of our employees each day. We are so fortunate at Cambridge to have hard working employees who are committed to ensuring our students receive the best possible education. This year we have asked our teachers and staff to overcome barriers and to rethink how we do things at our schools. Our staff and teachers have definitely risen to the occasion. We appreciate all of your support in partnering to make this difficult school year a meaningful and valuable one for our students.
A big thank you to the Cambridge PTA for organizing a week of fun filled events and goodies for our staff. We appreciate this immensely. We have attached the PTA flyer so you will have this information. This is also posted on the Cambridge PTA Facebook Page.

Daily Health Checks
We are depending on you to screen your children for symptoms of COVID-19 every day before sending them to school. Our staff will also do wellness self-checks before coming in each day. People with these symptoms may possibly have COVID-19, and must stay home. If symptoms start while your child is at school, we will call you to pick your child up right away. Possible symptoms include:
• Fever or chills
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
• Muscle or body aches
• New loss of taste or smell
• Sore throat
• Congestion or runny nose
• Nausea or vomiting
We are depending on our whole school community to work together to keep the virus out of our school. A morning health check is a critical piece of that effort.
If your student has any known allergies, such as seasonal allergies, or other health concerns like asthma, please update this information in your parent portal or contact our wonderful Cambridge Nurse, Mrs. Koelzer and her email contact is firstname.lastname@example.org

Students who come to campus for Hybrid Learning will be offered Lunch for that day and breakfast for the next on the day they are present at school. This is free for all students. We have students who are taking lunches, then throwing them in the garbage. Students do not have to take a lunch and we certainly do not want to waste food. Please let your teacher know if you do not want your child to take a lunch. Lunches and breakfasts for the other days of the week will be available for drive through pick up on Wednesdays. Pick up time is from 12:00-1:30 at Cambridge, Foxboro, Scandia or Vanden.
