• Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

  • In order to better inform parents, students, and staff of the current situation of the district and how best to prepare for situations, the district will use three levels so that everyone can plan and prepare for what to expect.  Please note that the district could move quickly to Level 3 with little to no notice depending on the situation.

     

    The distirct will update its Safe Return To In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan (SRCSP) as needed throughout the year.  Check back for the most current update.

  • In an effort to be transparent and also avoid the many rumors that can spread around, the district will be publishing the previous week's COVID-19 cases each Monday. These will be a combined total of students and staff. The total will reflect those that have been confirmed positive through lab results. This number does not mean that each of these cases were in a school building at the time they were positive or contagious, just that they are our student or staff member. Any person who would be considered a direct contact to someone who was positive and would need to quarantine will be notified directly.
