Good morning,

We received great news last week that all individuals working with our children will be eligible for vaccinations in the 1b Phase rollout, which begins on February 1, 2021.  In Atlantic schools we are fortunate to have four health service providers who were eligible in the 1a rollout phase and some employees who are also volunteer firefighters and paramedics that have had the chance at being 

one of the first groups to get vaccinated.  Obviously, this will add to our already effective mitigation 

efforts and get us one step closer to the new normal.

Throughout the holiday break we keep our weekly COVID numbers.  Our number of positive cases

are down along with the number we require to quarantine.  The last few days our County has seen

lower positivity rates and I hope that continues as we continue to fight COVID in our community. 

The following are our numbers from the past month.

It is my hope that we continue to see small numbers affecting staff and students and that they all experience a fast recovery!
