The Farmingdale School District was notified last night of a positive case of COVID-19.   The exposure did not occur in our building but to facilitate student notifications for quarantining purposes, Howitt will be closed today, October 28, 2020. We will continue to hold classes via remote learning from home.

NO SPORTS OR AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITES WILL BE HELD TODAY.

The “Make ‘Cents’ Out of Breast Cancer -  Together We Can Make ‘Change’” campaign that raises money for breast cancer research and awareness is still going on. Staff and students are asked to please consider donating spare change in the grade-level boxes located outside the Main Office. The grade with the most donations will receive a special surprise! So, let’s all make "cents" out of breast cancer. 

*********

 A reminder to everyone that social distancing still must be maintained while other people are around, and face masks MUST ALWAYS BE WORN.

*********

Students & staff should take notice of the "stripe" in the middle of the hallways, and walk on the right side while maintaining social distancing. The West Building hallways are labelled as "ONE WAY," and students and staff are asked to remember to follow the arrows.

*********

All students are reminded that they MUST keep their chromebooks in the cases at all times.

**********

Students may go to the East & West Cafes for breakfast when they arrive in the morning.

**********

 ID badges should be worn by students every day. Replacement IDs and lanyards may be purchased in the Library: $3.00 for a replacement badge and $4.00 for a lanyard w/badge holder.

**********

Students who enjoy art, music and dance, or have an interest in writing and photography can have fun unleashing their inner artist with this year's PTA Reflections theme, “I matter because…”  An email will be sent out with submission guidelines and an entry form that is due Friday, November 13.  For inspiration, please visit the Reflections Visual Art Gallery and learn more about prizes and awards in the link found below. PTA looks forward to seeing all of your wonderful submissions.

This week is Red Ribbon Week. Let the symbol of a red ribbon remind you to be drug free and make good choices. This year's Red Ribbon Week theme is "Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free." How does this theme help you to make good choices?
