A Message to Herzog Families:
Dear Herzog Family,
We pray you and your family are safe and healthy. When we left on that Friday the 13th I never imagined it would be like this. We miss greeting each and everyone of you. We miss the children reciting our ROAR expectations during morning meeting. We also miss watching our teachers hard work pay off , with how you built relationships, fully invested in new curriculum, and being open to learn new skills with Guided Reading and Math. So thank you for all your efforts. As you have heard this is uncharted waters and things are very fluid. There is a lot of unknown right now, as we receive confirmed information we will send it to you. Stay home, wash your hands often, use hand sanitizer and if you purchased all the toilet paper be generous.
Thinking of you during this time,
Prinicipal Folarin and the Herzog Team
Other Things You Should Know:
Saint Louis Public Schools will remain closed following spring break (March 16-20). This closure will tentatively end April 22nd.
Originally the date was April 3, but this past weekend, Mayor Lyda Krewson announced a mandatory, 30-day stay-at-home order aimed at preventing further spread of COVID-19. In light of this new restriction, all schools in the city of St. Louis have extended their closures through April 22, 2020. This decision will be continually re-evaluated in coordination with the Mayor’s Office and Dr. Fredrick Echols, the Director of the City’s Department of Health.
The District has established a direct hotline for students and parents requiring social and emotional support.
The hotline can be accessed by calling 314-345-6900 or via email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have medicine at Herzog that you need, please contact the school at 314-385-2212.
