Ted Talks May/June 2022: Rejoice All Ye Who Pass Through These Gates
One of the great joys of my job is that I get to participate in the end-of-year ceremonies on each of the campuses, which means that I often get to have conversations with parents, grandparents, and friends of the students.
Support Austin FC with Headwaters School This Spring/Summer 2022 Season
We are excited for this upcoming Austin FC season and to continue our partnership with the Q2 stadium. When we have Headwaters volunteers at Austin FC home games the school receives 10% of the proceeds plus tips. Last season we brought in over $35,000 for Headwaters.
Headwaters School is watching the forecast closely after the National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning for Central Texas in effect starting early Thursday morning through late Thursday night.
Based on the current forecasts, Headwaters School campuses will be open as scheduled tomorrow, Thursday, January 20, 2022.
We will continue to monitor weather conditions for tomorrow, especially for after-school programs. If there are any changes to our schedule, we will use our emergency text alert system, email, and social media to update you if necessary.
Please be sure students have proper (and labeled) layers including jackets, hats, gloves, and footwear for the weather (we love this Outdoor Winter Clothing Resources created by Creek Guide Jennie Glass!), but please note that we will use caution with outside activities and limit as appropriate. While we are spending more time indoors, our layered COVID-19 mitigation efforts are key in preventing spread. We will be spacing kids out as best as possible (especially while eating/drinking), keeping windows open for air flow, using our HEPA filters, and most importantly, wearing a mask correctly and consistently for those in Primary and above. Here are some tips on mask fit and style, too.
If you choose to keep your child home for any reason, please email your campuses’ attendance inbox at the links below to notify the campus manager:
In addition to choosing the right mask, wearing it correctly makes a big difference in efficacy. A well-fitting mask is one that fits snugly against the sides of your face AND covers your nose and mouth and can be secured under your chin.
