Good evening Ephesus families,

We recently learned of two confirmed cases of COVID-19 among our Roadrunner community. The families of the close contacts have been notified. In a spirit of transparency, I will let you know any time we have a positive case on campus.

When you get a minute, please take note of the following resources that I recommend you bookmark:

Click here for information regarding COVID-19 vaccinations and testing sites in Orange County.

Click here for helpful resources regarding talking with children about changes related to COVID-19.

Please know our school counselors, social workers, psychologists and nurses are also well-equipped and happy to help in any way needed.

If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly.
