Whitney Middle Teachers And Parents Irate At Testing Process

Parents at Whitney Middle School received an email seen below from the acting Principle on Thursday which is described as totally unfair. School testing results were delayed no fault of ours, so parents should not have to book another test because its more than 3 days. Also why aren’t all schools following this protocol? MOE and the Minister of Education have been extremely silent and parents are extremely upset.

Once again we must show our resilience during these challenging time. We are anxious to have our students back on campus! Due to the extended time that it has taken for test results to be received it has prevented teachers from being able to adequately facilitate in classroom instruction.

In order for your child to attend, a negative PCR test must be presented that is not more than 3 days old according to the DOH guidelines. We understand that many should have had results for Wednesday’s opening January 5th, unfortunately it is out of our hands when it comes to who can be permitted on campus and we must adhere to the Ministry Protocols and Guidelines. With that being said, I encourage you to book a new PCR Test for your child as we expect the majority of our teachers to receive their result by weeks end.

We will continue to zoom on Monday January 10th, for those students who will not have received their new results and hope to be in person for all by Friday January 14th, 2022.

Please remind your child of the expectations regarding the wearing of face mask being up at ALL times as well as practicing social distance.
