Good Evening William Penn Parents, Guardians and Students:


We will be returning to in-person classes tomorrow, Tuesday, January 18th.  Please continue to  discuss with your child the importance of wearing a mask appropriately at all times.  Masks need to be worn over the nose and mouth at the bus stop, on the bus and while in school.  Students are also required to wear an appropriate mask for school.  Ski masks should not be worn in the school setting or on buses.  Mask wearing is essential in stopping the spread of Covid -19 and it is a required school mandate.


Tomorrow is also the start of the 2nd semester and is a B-Day Advisory Day.  All students should log onto home access center to see if they have a NEW semester course for 3rd and 4th marking periods.  If you forgot your password, use the reset password link.  If you notice a problem with your 2nd semester class or you are missing a class, email your guidance counselor through Schoology as soon as possible so that they can make the correction.  


Don’t forget!!! – Each morning, please review the online health self screener, on our website, with your child prior to sending them to school.  The self screener can be located here:  http://www.colonialschooldistrict.org/coronavirus-information/self-screening/

If your child is not feeling well or if your child cannot pass the screener, please DO NOT send them to school.  If your student is experiencing Covid-19 symptoms, please visit https://coronavirus.delaware.gov/testing/ or go to https://curative.com/ to schedule a test.  Please keep in mind that Covid-19 testing is in high demand so it may take a few days in order to get testing scheduled.  


Reminder about  In-School Covid-19 Testing at William Penn:  


Colonial School District  and Quidel continue to offer free weekly testing at William Penn High School for students and staff who are not experiencing Covid-19 symptoms.  We highly encourage all students to sign up for this free service.  For information on how to sign your student up for weekly testing, please visit https://my.primary.health/l/colonial-schools to register.  Testing at William Penn is every Wednesday.  Students will receive an appointment pass through E-Hall pass.


We are looking forward to seeing our students tomorrow morning at 7:05 am for the start of the 2nd semester!


Have a wonderful evening.
