Vaccine Cards
While we know most of our students are not yet old enough to be vaccinated, however, if your child is fully vaccinated  or if you have older children, please consider submitting a copy of their completed vaccine card:

  • Email a scanned copy or photo of the vaccine card to [email protected]
  • Visit Hawthorne School on weekdays between 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM to make a copy.

Vaccinated students with a vaccine card on file:

  • will not need to quarantine if they are a close contact to a COVID-positive case and do not have symptoms
  • will not need to continue participating in weekly SHIELD testing

Shield Testing:
During the last week before winter break, Hawthorne will shift its SHIELD testing schedule in an effort to receive all test results back before we dismiss for winter break.
We will test on Wednesday, December 15th  instead of our usual Thursday testing. In January, we will return to our normal testing schedule.

Winter Break:
Our last day before Winter break will be Friday December 17th.  School will resume WEDNESDAY, January 5th.  (Older students will be back on Tuesday, January 4th however, preschool will have a non attendance day on January 4th.  We hope you have a wonderful winter break with time to relax and spend time with family and friends.

Changing Weather
The weather is unpredictable and changing.  Please be sure to have a hat and mittens in your child’s backpack if he/she does not wear them to school.  Unless the weather is very cold, we try to get outside everyday.

Have a great weekend!
