(Virtual) Cultural Heritage Week
*DEADLINE FOR VIDEO SUBMISSIONS IS MONDAY, JAN. 18*
(Virtual) Cultural Heritage Week 2021 will begin on Monday, January 25th. Experience the sights, sounds and arts of the many cultures and family traditions that are represented at Merion Elementary. Each day of the week, students will be invited to watch videos (created by Merion families) and track things that they’ve learned in their “passport”. Students who complete their passports will be eligible for a prize!
For this event to take place, we need YOU. We’re asking families to volunteer to create a short video (no longer than 3 minutes) that highlight qualities that are unique to their family heritage (similar to how we’ve done with our in-person events in the past).
For more information, visit our website or our event flyer.

Family gatherings and holiday celebrations create challenges during a pandemic. Research is showing that most transmission occurs outside of school, from various gatherings of family and friends. Attached is the CDCs recommendations for celebrating various holidays this year.
Transmission of coronavirus occurs much more commonly through respiratory droplets than through objects and surfaces, like doorknobs, countertops, keyboards, toys, etc. Current evidence suggests that SARS-CoV-2 may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials. Close contact with a person within 6 feet for 15 minutes continues to be the most common transmission. More information here
