Did you know that OHA and OSU have teamed up to offer free weekly asymptotic covid testing for all K-12 students in the state? It’s a PCR test (so very reliable) and only requires a spit sample. Our first tests went home with students this week. The more we know, the safer we will all be. You can find more information and sign your child up on the district website. https://www.ashland.k12.or.us/page/coronavirus-covid-19-response

A year ago, we all experienced and witnessed how wide-spread community service can unite, mend, and restore hope. An ASD parent has initiated an inspiring and uplifting effort to make September 8 a day of community connection and care. Please join in this effort and make this day and many more full of gestures of kindness that ripple across our community and beyond.
