Dear Deer Park Families,
We have received information from our vaccination partner at Mercy Health that Deer Park teachers and support staff will be vaccinated next Thursday, February 11. As I had mentioned in a previous release,Thursday, Feb. 11 will now be a district-wide virtual learning day for all students.
Deer Park Schools will be receiving the Moderna vaccine. The Moderna vaccine requires two doses, given four weeks apart. The second dose will be given to the staff on Thursday, March 11th. To accommodate for this, we must do some rearranging of our school calendar.
The conference days that were originally scheduled for Thursday, March 4th and Friday, March 5 will now be regular in-person learning days for our students. We will now have only one conference day that will take place on Thursday, March 11th from 1-8 p.m. There will be no school for students on Thursday, March 11th.
Friday, March 12th is currently scheduled as a half day for students. There will now be NO SCHOOL for students on Friday, March 12th.
We have revised our school calendar to reflect these changes. See the link to the revised calendar below. Please don’t forget that there is no school on Monday, February 15th in observance of President’s Day.
