We're returning to in-person learning
This communication comes with high importance. The administration met Friday in a special-called meeting and reviewed and analyzed district data as it relates to COVID-19 cases in our district and community. The administration reviewed staffing levels and positive student cases; hence, it was decided by the administration that our staffing levels are appropriate and student cases were low enough for the district to safely return to in-person learning this Monday, January 10, 2022.
We are happy and excited to welcome our students and staff back into the buildings. However; please remember, the district is still under a temporary mask mandate and it is required that all staff and students wear masks/face coverings while in the buildings. Mask are required by all spectators for athletic events. All other safety protocols and procedures will remain in place.
Additionally, the safety, security and well being of our students and staff is the district’s top priority. The administration will continue to monitor positive COVID cases throughout the district, community, and county and will continue to make decisions that are in the best interest of our students and staff to mitigate the spread of COVID. If the situation warrants, the district will consider other options, including but not limited to implementing the Emergency Learning Plan, which allows the district to switch to virtual learning.
Finally, as we prepare to return to school on Monday, parents, please remember to check your child(ren) for COVID symptoms before they leave for school. If your child is exhibiting any of the COVID symptoms, please keep him/her home to help us mitigate the spread of the virus. Staff, if you are exhibiting COVID symptoms, please notify your principal or supervisor and remain home until the symptoms have passed. Teachers, please be advised lesson plans are due, Monday, January 10, 2022 as we continue to educate our students at a high level throughout the pandemic.
