Message from ENSATS 1/22/2021

Good Evening Caregivers & Students:

 

As we prepare for the final week of January this coming week, we will also reach the last week of Quarter 2.  That said, we encourage all students to review Schoology and Aspen and complete any missing work.  In addition, please contact teachers if you need assistance.

 

Once again, here is the link to the ENSATS COVID Dashboard.  This dashboard is updated at the close of every week. We will provide the link in our weekly emails, but you can also find it on the Families page of our website in the COVID-19 section.

 

Here is a quick preview of the schedule for this coming week.

Grade 9 CTE Letter

It is hard to believe that our grade 9 students will be selecting their CTE area soon.  I am sure they are just as excited as we are!  Here is the letter that was sent from our Grade 9 Counselors last week.  It contains several important dates and information about the CTE selection process.

 

School Day SAT

For more information regarding the School Day SAT that will be offered on Tuesday, April 13, 2021, please see the following letter that was sent home last week.  School Day SAT

 

Letter to Governor Baker

The North Shore Superintendents, in collaboration with the Union Leadership from each school district, submitted a letter to Governor Baker today requesting that educators be reclassified and made eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccinations during Phase I of the vaccination process.  Teachers and staff have been working hard to provide quality instruction and maintain safety protocols. As a result of their efforts and the great work of our students, we have had a small number of close contacts inside the school building since reopening in September.  We believe that the vaccination movement into Phase I will allow us to expand opportunities to have more students on campus in the future.

 

Letter from Representative Bradford Hill

State Representative Hill is an important advocate for our students.  Please review his letter regarding funding for education.

 

Guest Speakers

We are happy to announce that we will be hosting both student and parent sessions related to equity, inclusion, anxiety, coping skills, addiction, and making good choices!  Dr. Adolph Brown will be coming to us virtually as well as Lynn Lyons and Chris Herren. Thanks to competitive grants we have received, these presentations will be offered during the school day and in the evening. Stay tuned for additional information with dates and times.

You may be wondering what our staff does on Wednesday late-start openings! Well, we collaborate. Service-related teachers are discussing what courses our CTE students need to be prepared for the future workforce! Yes, we talked about a course titled, Corporate Citizenship, “How to be a good human.”
