One year into the pandemic, it’s safe to say everyone has cabin fever in their familiar surroundings. And with the availability of the vaccination for most Americans, the allure of travel is more attractive than ever. That means being prepared to travel safely is paramount. The type of transportation you use, type of accommodation you stay in, and the activities you do during travel can increase your risk of getting and spreading COVID-19. Your chances of getting or spreading COVID-19 while traveling also depend on whether you and those around you take steps to protect yourselves and others, by wearing masks, avoiding crowds, and staying 6 feet from anyone who is not traveling with you (social distancing).
If you will be traveling, take steps to protect yourself and others:
In the spirit of CREST, and protecting our community, GLOBE is requesting that all families who increase their potential for COVID-19 exposure during spring break participate in virtual only instruction during the week of April 12. Some examples (though not exhaustive) for what would be considered increased exposure would be travel by plane or gathering with individuals who are not a part of your usual pod. Please err on the side of caution and keep your child(ren) home the week following spring break. Assuming that no one in the household has developed COVID-19 symptoms, or tested positive, they would return to their in-person instruction during the week of April 19.
If you choose to self quarantine your child the week after spring break, please notify your child's homeroom teacher by e-mail and copy appropriate school nurse.

Please contact the appropriate school nurse, Lindsay Reese (Lower Campus) or Cherrie Robinson (Upper Campus), immediately.
