Updated COVID Information

We received notification from the Indiana Department of Health on Friday stating that if a symptomatic student or staff member receives a negative result from an antigen COVID-19 test, they are required to follow up with a confirmatory PCR test.

Traveling over spring break?

Spring Break Travel: When considering your spring break travel, please read below for important information regarding current travel restrictions. On January 26, 2021, the CDC issued an order regarding COVID-19 testing prior to boarding a flight for re-entry to the United States when traveling back from a foreign country (USVI and Puerto Rico are included on this list). Additionally, there are post-travel quarantine guidelines for each country, which apply even if crossing a border via any transportation method. Information can be found on testing requirements and on post-travel quarantine guidelines by clicking on each country found here: CDC Map and Travel Notices

Please keep these guidelines in mind when making any upcoming travel plans. Students and staff traveling outside of the US will be expected to adhere to the current requirements regarding quarantine periods and testing.Additionally, you should not travel if you are sick, have suspected or been diagnosed with COVID-19, or have been around someone with suspected or diagnosed COVID-19 in the past 14 days. Doing so may spread the disease to others unnecessarily. The When to Delay Travel document is an excellent resource to help you determine if you should stay home.Thank you for taking the time to review this important information. ~ Dawn Hanson, BSN, RN - Corporation Nurse Greenfield-Central Community School Corporation.

Inclement Weather Virtual Learning

This year, inclement weather days will be very different for our students. They will be virtual learning days consisting of live instruction and independent work. Please be sure to read below. Your classroom teacher will be in contact with a more specific schedule for your student on those days.

Inclement Weather - In the event of inclement weather this year, we will continue to use the virtual learning model so that new instruction can be delivered and the year not be extended to make up for the missed day(s). Unlike with past snow days, we will be utilizing more “live” instruction which will mirror a typical school day. During a snow day, your students day will begin at 8:30 am and all instruction will conclude by 2:00pm. Your teacher will contact you with more specific information when the need arises.

Please click below to read through caregiver and student expectations during inclement weather virtual learning experiences.

Breath & Calm Down

Recently, students and I have been talking about uncomfortable feelings and how they can make your body feel. Ask your child(ren) about what feelings are uncomfortable for them and how they feel those feelings in their bodies. They may tell you about butterflies in the stomach, headaches, tight muscles, fast beating hearts, and fast breathing. They may also share how faces look for different feelings and how sometimes hands get clenched into fists. Second and Third graders should be able to tell you what "Flipping Your Lid" means and how it relates to not being able to think clearly.

More recently, we have started talking about how to calm our brains and bodies down so that problems can better be solved. We've practiced taking belly breathes, counting, and using positive self talk. These are all strategies that can help people calm down so that their brains are better able to think about solving whatever the issue is. Please encourage your child(ren) to use these strategies at home. The more practice they have, the more automatic the calming strategies will become.

Hats & Gloves: The Maxwell Intermediate Student Council recently held a hat & glove drive for the Greenfield-Central elementary schools. If your child is in need of a hat and/or gloves, please contact me (temiller@gcsc.k12.in.us or 317-462-1492).
