There will be no COVID-19 testing on campus this week. Fifth grade students who are learning virtually from home who would like to participate in Field Day on Thursday, June 10 are required to be COVID-19 tested within seven days of coming on to campus. The following testing options are available:
Testing at John Burroughs Middle School on June 7 or June 8. Appointments are required and can be made at https://www.burroughsms.org/.
Testing at an independent testing center.
Students should bring a copy of their negative result with them.
Two of our teachers will be leaving 3rd Street this year. Mr. Bassett (grade 4) is retiring and Ms. Byham (grade 5) has been promoted to be an reading intervention coordinator at another school. Please take a moment to bid them farewell and express your appreciation for the many years of service at: https://padlet.com/thirdstreetel/2021farewells.
