Have you heard about the Science Hub?  The Science Hub is a place for students to come for extra help in completing any science work.  The space is located in room 1142 of the science wing.  There are science teachers in the Hub every day during the 3rd block.  Obtain a pass from your current science teacher to come and use the hub.  It's a great place to study as well! 



If your student has symptoms of COVID-19 or has been exposed to someone with COVID-19 they should test for COVID-19 before returning to school.   PCR testing is the gold standard.  To find testing sites near you visit: https://www.211ct.org/.   Colchester Public Schools has some rapid at home test kits for students to use.  Please contact your child's school nurse if you need one.
