I hope this message finds you enjoying your weekend with all of this sunshine! Even though it is chilly, the sunshine sure helps lift your spirits.
As we head into Spring Break, I would like to share with you some great news. Yesterday, the majority of our staff received their second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination. In 14 days those who participated in our clinic will be protected from getting COVID-19!
This is huge and pushes us one step closer to normalcy.
This news, coupled with the CDC yet again relaxing distancing guidelines to 3 feet (with masks), gives me hope that we are on track to a more typical start to the 21-22 school year.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank those responsible for all the work put into making the clinic a success.
First and foremost, I would like to thank our Director of Operations, Andreas Johansson, and his team of staff members who put countless hours into organizing and running the event that ultimately vaccinated over 900 people.
I have heard nothing but positive feedback from every district about how smooth the entire process went. Most people were in and out in under 30 minutes. Well done!
I would also like to thank our partner The Nutrition Group for providing free refreshments for everyone vaccinated and for providing food to all of the workers.
Also, a huge thank you goes out to the Giant Eagle for providing the vaccinations and to their team who administered the shots. Well done!
Finally, I would like to thank the Northeast Ohio Educational Service Center for help with organizing the event.
It is my hope that everyone takes this next week to rest, recharge and get ready for the home stretch as we move into the fourth quarter. This year has certainly been one to remember! We have conquered so much and have so many things to celebrate.
Take time this next week to breathe a sigh of relief.
Have a safe and relaxing break and Go Rockets!
