SSA+S Families,

This is Tara Tahmosh. 

Due to today’s court decision, in Tallahassee, it has been decided that the state cannot uphold a mask ban, sanctions, or a parental opt out. Our board of directors held an emergency meeting following this decision and voted to follow Sarasota School Board’s Mask Policy with only a medical opt out. 

All students and employees will be required to wear a mask beginning Monday excluding those with a medical opt out signed by their doctor. 

If the law changes again, on appeal, I have kept your parental opt outs and will honor them. 

Les habla Daniela Arcadia.

Debido a la decisión judicial de hoy, en Tallahassee, se decidió que el estado no puede mantener la prohibición de los cubrebocas, las sanciones o la exclusión voluntaria de los padres. Nuestra junta directiva tubo una reunión de emergencia luego de esta decisión y votó a favor de seguir la Política de cubrebocas de la Junta Escolar de Sarasota al menos que tenga una exclusión médica. Les enviaré su página de política por correo electrónico después de este mensaje.

Todos los estudiantes y empleados deberán usar cubrebocas a partir del lunes, excepto aquellos con una nota médica firmada por su doctor.

Si la ley cambia nuevamente, en la apelación, hemos mantenido la exclusión voluntaria que firmaron algunos de ustedes y la respetaremos.

I.  PROTOCOLS FOR SYMPTOMATIC OR COVID-19 POSITIVE STUDENTS

  1. If the student is asymptomatic and tests positive for COVID-19, they may return to campus with a negative diagnostic COVID-19 test (now including rapid tests); or
    1. Home antigen tests: We are still working out how we are going to respond to those opting to take home-antigen tests now that are available at local retailers, but I’m assuming if this is the case, they will need to be able to produce a report including the date the test was taken, the student’s full name, and the student’s date of birth. We will likely not be able to just accept a picture of the home test, since there is no way to confirm who the test belongs to and when it was taken just from the picture.
  2. If the student is symptomatic and tests positive for COVID-19, they may return to campus after 10 days have passed since their symptoms started; or
  3. The student may return to campus with written permission from a licensed medical doctor (MD), osteopathic physician (DO), or an advanced nurse practitioner (ARNP)

II. PROTOCOLS FOR ASYMPTOMATIC STUDENTS WITH EXPOSURE TO COVID-19

    1. The student may return to campus with a negative diagnostic COVID-19 test taken no earlier than the fourth day of quarantine (now including rapid tests); or
    2. The student may return to campus after seven days have passed since their date of exposure without a negative COVID-19 test.
    3. If the student becomes symptomatic, the protocol in the above section must be followed.

III.   If a previously positive student is re-exposed within 90 days from the date their symptoms started, or their first positive diagnostic COVID-19 test was taken (if they had no symptoms), they will not be required to quarantine.

IV.   If a fully vaccinated student is exposed and it’s been at least two weeks since their last dose of the vaccine series was received, they will not be required to quarantine.  I have access to the state vaccination database, so I can verify whether close contacts are vaccinated.  Just send me their name and date of birth.

Lastly, based on how this guidance reads, the above changes only apply to students. Staff members that test positive or who are exposed, will still need to follow the CDC-based guidance from last year.

Hello Tigers,

If your child is contact traced or positive for Covid, please contact Tara Tahmosh, Kylie Gannon, or Daniela Arcadia para Espanol as soon as possible.  This excuses the absences and allows us to contact trace, if needed, on campus.

All students have a free Office 365 account from our school that includes Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and TEAMS. 

Teachers will post their entire agenda and assignments, with corresponding PowerPoints or files, on TEAMS.

Use https://www.office.com to have your child log in; they cannot log in from the district website.  The district has a different Office 365 account that does not include charter schools.

Please note, for returning students, your log ins are different and listed below.  Format for student login:

  • N Number without the N – Example 123456@ssas.org
  • Passwords for Windows and Apple devices – Example Pin12345 which is their lunch pin number. They will add Pin to the front of their lunch pin as the password.
Sincerely,
Tara Tahmosh
