Sherwood High School Vision for the Future (the same information/request from last week)

Below is a short form where I am hoping to gather some thoughts and feedback from each of you about our school vision for the future.  We have a unique opportunity to truly imagine and create an educational experience that serves each of our students well and I would love to partner with you on that.  If you have a few minutes, please take some time to complete the form and/or reach out to me if you would like to talk!

COVID-19 Antibody Testing

The American Red Cross is testing all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies. The antibody test is authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and will indicate if a donor’s immune system has produced antibodies to the virus, regardless of whether they ever showed symptoms.  Results will be available 7-10 days after donation.
