The Webster County Board of Education held a meeting on Friday, February 18, 2022 and voted to adjust our Covid-19 school protocols.
· Effective Monday, February. 21, 2022, face coverings will become optional for all students and staff members in school facilities and on school buses due to our decline in positivity rates.
· There will be no contact tracing within schools.
· If a student or staff member tests positive for Covid-19 they must quarantine for 5 days and may return to work or school on day 6 if they are asymptomatic.
· Parents, just a reminder, that if your child is showing symptoms of illness, please contact your physician and refrain from sending them to school until they are asymptomatic.
· Please continue to utilize effective hygiene strategies such as hand washing and utilization of hand sanitizer.
Thank you for your cooperation,

Healthy snack choices encourage positive food habits
Healthy food is fuel for growing bodies and brains. To help your child learn to make nutritious food choices, create an "anytime" shelf in your refrigerator. Stock it with a selection of healthy foods such as carrot sticks, broccoli "trees," cheese, chunks of melon and raisins. Then allow your child to help himself from this shelf any time he is hungry. He'll like choosing, and you'll know he's making healthy choices.
Get to the heart of homework problems
If your student never seems to do homework, the situation calls for problem-solving. Instead of criticizing, ask questions: Is he afraid of missing the bus if he takes time to gather the materials he needs? Are his books too heavy for his long walk home? Does he routinely check the online notices for the class? Once you and your teen have identified the issue, you can discuss ways to solve it.
Share strategies for success on tests right from the start
Before your teen starts to answer test questions, she should do a few things that can make a difference to her score. Teach your teen to write down key information she's studied, like formulas or dates, at the top so she'll have them to refer to when answering questions. Then she should read the instructions carefully and figure out how much time she has for each question. Now she's ready to do her best.
