KHS Student Covid Vaccine Information

The Henry County Office of Emergency Management, Henry & Stark County Health Department, and Regional Office of Education are holding a vaccination clinic specifically for our high school students at Black Hawk College (East Campus) in the coming weeks.  This is a unique opportunity to get those students who are wanting and are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccination, during the school day, vaccinated yet this school year.  This email serves to inform you about the registration process and the benefits of receiving the vaccination for our students, our families, and the communities.
Health and Safety
Clinical studies have shown that the Pfizer vaccination is safe and effective for individuals ages 16-18.  The FDA has approved the vaccination for those ages.  As of 4/8/21, only 20.71% of the Henry County population is fully vaccinated.  Stark County stands at 19.85%.   We can, and need to, do better as a region.
Staying in the Classroom
Under current guidance, just as with our staff who have been vaccinated, students who are fully vaccinated will not need to quarantine if they are identified as a close contact to someone who tests positive for Covid.  This will help provide consistency for our students next school year.
Sports and Extracurriculars
As with the classroom example, athletes who are fully vaccinated will not need to quarantine if they are identified as a close contact to someone who tests positive for Covid.  This will help provide consistency for our teams next school year.  
Transportation and Logistics
We will take care of transporting your child to and from Black Hawk East on the day of the vaccination clinic.  The exact schedule will be released once we have a final count of students we are transporting.
How to Take Advantage of this Opportunity 
A link for you to register your child for this opportunity is attached to this email. If your child is 18 years of age they should register on their own. If your child is 16-17 years old, you will need to authorize their registration as their parent. The deadline for this opportunity is noon on Wednesday, April 14, 2021.
In conclusion, we have all experienced a lot of changes since this pandemic began. This opportunity will provide the children with a chance to take one more step towards things returning to normal. I encourage you to consider registering your child for this clinic.

KHS Group Interpretation 2021 Final State Performance 

Last weekend, the KHS Group Interpretation team won their Sectional. (This performance was performed and recorded at KHS. It was then submitted to the judges.) Our GI team read the judges' comments. Based upon those suggestions, the team decided  to submit a new video to submit for the State Competition. While they did not advance to State Finals, four members of the cast (A Bug's Life), were named All State Cast members. They were: Connor Bryan, Neeva Baney, Bryanna Delgado, and Simon Heck.
Congratulations to the entire cast and Miss Olalde on their performances. This is the 15th straight year that the KHS GI team has qualified for State Competition. (There was no State competition in 2020.)
