    Good afternoon,

    Next Thursday (January 20) at 4 p.m., you will be receiving a text message from our district's SchoolMessenger short code number 67587.  If you would like to begin receiving text messages in addition to phone calls and emails from SchoolMessenger, please respond to this text message with Y or YES.  If for some reason you miss this text message, a flyer containing a QR code that will allow you to opt in after next Thursday at 4 p.m. is attached below.  The QR code can only be used after next Thursday at that time.  Parents/guardians, please make certain that your cell phone numbers are updated within Genesis prior to the end of the day next Tuesday (the 18th) as Genesis "speaks" to SchoolMessenger each evening and only phone numbers that are within Genesis will be able to receive text messages, even if the QR code is used.

  • Excessive Heat Mask Exemption and Chromebooks

    Tuesday, September 7, 2021

    Good evening,
     
    With regard to the excessive heat exemption for masks, we will be using an outdoor temperature of 80 degrees Fahrenheit as our cutoff value so that a single approach can be in place throughout the district in all locations for the reason of consistency.  We will be using the temperature as predicted on weather.com.  Whenever possible, we will be seeking to make a decision for the entire upcoming week.  With that being said, there may be single "outlier" days for which we need to put the exemption into place or put the mask requirement back in for that day.  In those cases, that decision will be communicated districtwide the evening before.  Please know that, when the exemption is in effect, masks will be optional in an attempt to respect individual comfort levels.  On those days when the exemption is in place, masks still need to be brought to school in case they are needed.
     
    This daily information will be posted to the district website (www.clarkschools.org) under the "News and Announcements" section towards the bottom of the page.  Kindly look there beginning later in the day tomorrow (Wednesday the 8th) for an update regarding this Thursday and Friday.
     
    In terms of student one-to-one Chromebooks, devices should be fully charged and brought to school each day as students will be using these devices for school-related work both in and outside of school (e.g., in-class assignments, homework assignments, lab reports, and assessments). 

    As always, thank you for your cooperation.  Looking forward to a great first day with our students on Thursday.
