MAKO MEMO

Dear Mullen-Hall Families,

Welcome back and a Happy 2022 to all of you! We hope you enjoyed rest and relaxation over the winter break. 

Beginning in February, Falmouth Community School will be offering after-school programs across all four elementary buildings. Programs for Mullen Hall will be offered on Mondays from 3:30 - 4:30pm.

The programs will be “Our Cultural Community” and “Who is a Scientist: Inquiry and Innovation”. Registration will begin on January 10. There are twenty slots available for each program. Parent pick-up is required. Please see attached flyers. 

Additional after school programs will be offered through the PTO. There is a fee for activities. Please be on the lookout for a flyer containing all the information. 

You + Me = Equity is a group of parents, teachers, and community members which originated in August of 2020 to address concerns and needs for equity and inclusivity within the school community. Our Vision is to ensure that all children feel affirmed, respected, and celebrated for who they are. Join us at our next virtual meeting on January 13, 2022 at 4:00pm.

COVID- Test and Stay Program

The COVID Test and Stay Program has allowed students who were exposed at school to be tested at school and if negative, to remain at school.  Consent for this program can no longer be accepted verbally over the phone, so it is important that you complete the consent using the link below. 

 If you choose to DECLINE  to participate in this program, you will still need to complete the form using the link below and choose the decline option. If/when there is an exposure for your student here at school, you will need to dismiss your student immediately and keep them home for the proper quarantine period.  What does it mean to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19?

Reminder from Nurse Matty 

Test & Stay Program Link

You can contact the  district COVID Team at 774-392-6477 or covidteam@falmouth.k12.ma.us. If you have a medically related question, please contact your school nurse or your primary health care physician.

To ensure adequate time for an immune response to occur, a person is considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after completion of a two-dose mRNA series or one dose of Janssen vaccine.

 


Each week I will include a Google Form as a vehicle for you to share your thoughts and ask questions.
