Letter from Principal Knox, Jan. 7

Dear Hamagrael Families, 

We had an incredible week back at Hamagrael this week. It was so nice to see our halls, classrooms and playground filled with the joy, laughter and curiosity that only students and teachers can bring to a school. Please see the following updates below and, as always, reach out if you have any questions at all.

Mr. Knox

Test Kit Pick Up

The district has received an allotment of at-home rapid COVID-19 test kits for use by families and by our schools. If you were unable to pick up a test at your child’s school, a districtwide pick-up will be held at Eagle Elementary School on Monday evening from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Live Instruction

As we navigate through the next few weeks, I appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate our live instruction initiative to help support those students who are either Covid positive, awaiting results because of a close contact or are symptomatic and awaiting their own results. If you have any questions about this process, please feel free to reach out to me or Mrs. Vail at anytime
