Message for Clinton Families – Week of May 4

May 2, 2020

Dear Clinton Families,

Thank you for your continued support as we head into the month of May and remote learning.  We continue to see more and more of our students engaging in class meetings and completing assignments.  We look forward to a strong finish to the school year.

NEW THIS WEEK: Join your Clinton Clinicians (Mrs. Brown, Mr. Rohde, and Mrs. Towle) for a Zoom Lunch Bunch!  These will happen every Wednesday from 11:30-12:00.  They will be doing a short social skills activity and be available to chat with students.  Use Zoom ID 548-962-8846 to attend.  This is open to any Clinton student K-5.  They look forward to seeing you! 

Here is the LINK for the CAMP (Computer, Art, Music, P.E.) for the week of May 4.

We will continue to have Grab & Go meals each Monday at Door 3 from 11:00 – 12:30.  This week we will also have Food Bank Drive-Thru Distribution on Tuesday, May 5 from 3:00 – 4:00 at Door 3.

Below is important information from LPSDO.  Thank you again for all you are doing during this time.  We miss our Clinton Comets and their families!  Let me know if you have any questions or if you need anything.

Thank you,

Important Information from LPSDO:

Join the #TestNebraskaChallenge

TestNebraska is a new initiative to dramatically increase the rate of COVID-19 testing. Every Nebraskan is being asked to go toTestNebraska.com and take a quick, five-minute assessment. This will help figure out where in the state testing needs to occur, and what your risk level is. Get started with three simple steps:

  1. Answer a few questions to determine your current risk.
  2. They can’t test everyone, but they will prioritize testing for those who currently have symptoms, have interacted with someone who has already tested positive, or have recently visited places where COVID-19 is more widespread.
  3. If you do test positive, they will ask you to answer some questions to help isolate the infection rate.

Take the assessment now: TestNebraska.com.
