Cove 5th Grade continues the tradition of singing the National Anthem each Thursday in lieu of the pledge of allegiance which is recited all other days.
Cove has earned a reputation for producing top female sprinters over the past decade but Morgan and Sophie are far from the speed set by Cove High School Freshman Dylanie Petersohn last weekend at Firebird Raceway. Dylanie's dragster nearly touched 90 mph on the short 220 yard (1/8 mile) track as she went on to collect the 2020 Halloween Classic Championship in the Lightning Class.
Photo: Reagan on the "Road to Success" AKA the elementary school hallway. The elementary school has implemented "driving rules" to move students throughout the school. Students are testing and earning their licenses this week!By almost all accounts, the first week back to school was a smashing success! Kids are once again learning and interacting with their peers and teachers are thrilled to be back to pursuing their passion. Students at all grade levels have adjusted to the perceived “weirdness” of the rules and adjustments to their daily school routines quite well. Teachers and staff are overly-assertive in tracking the whereabouts and contacts between students and others throughout the day as we remain committed to preparedness for an event we are taking every precaution to prevent. Thus far, there has been no indication of COVID within the school community but the school remains ready to address such an event in accordance with the best available actions and resources. For doing your part and helping to mitigate risk for our students and staff, Cove School District thanks you. Without your support, on-site school would not be possible. There is, however, one area where we continue to struggle and seems to overshadow everything we have done to provide a safer environment for our students. While making a commitment to respect individual rights, empower parents, provide a quality educational model, and support our constitution; Cove School has also been committed to providing equitable educational opportunity for all students – even those few whose parents or the students themselves refuse to wear a face covering. Clearly, face coverings are the politicized hot-button issue way beyond our school boundaries despite being described on only one-page of an 87-page rule book for reopening issued by the state. On day one, this was not a major issue as there were a handful of students spread across the entire school who were objecting to face coverings. ...
We have completed six full weeks of in-person school! This week we successfully reintroduced a short after-school recess for grades K-6 (masks are required). A new change to be aware of: While parents/guardians are still not allowed in the school building, they can leave their vehicles when picking up students (please wear your masks). Our goal is to return to our pre-COVID routines as soon, yet as safely, as possible .
