Our MDE release # 48.92

Real time number through 10/31 #62.74

We need help in our community to get this number turned around.  If the current number next week does not show a decrease we will be discussing distance learning.  Please do what you can to help our students stay in school.

If our number continues to increase or even stay the same as real time projection, the next move would be to go to distance learning.  We know this will have impacts on education and it also means our extracurriculars will come to a stop.  We want our kids to be in school and be able to participate, so we need everyone to do their part to make that happen!
