I am pleased to report that our temporary pause on “in person” at the HS allowed our numbers of quarantined students to drastically decrease. The tentative plan is to return to full in person next Tuesday, May 11th. The district will continue to monitor numbers from today until Monday, and if the numbers remain low, we will have all students in grades 9-12 return. Confirmation of this return will be announced on Monday, but we wanted to inform families of the plan.
As of 3:53pm Thursday:
RG: 12 out on quarantine
MS: 7 out on quarantine
HS: 7 out on quarantine; 4 out as positive
preK: 3 out on quarantine
Staff: 1 out on quarantine; 1 out as positive
With four weeks left of the school year and year end activities ramping up, Please please do your part by keeping everyone safe. Hand washing, hand sanitizing, social distancing, and masking while indoors. If you or your child experiences any symptoms, please keep them home and contact the nurses department. The district wants all students to end the year strong academically and be able to attend their activities.
I am sure you also all hear the Governor’s announcement yesterday that communities will be starting to reopen. This is super exciting! However, please keep in mind that the safe learning plan for mitigation continues throughout the school year. Masks must continue to be worn at school. The only relaxation at this time is that students do not have to wear masks for outdoor recess activities.
Thank you for all your patience and grace you have had with the district this year. It is greatly appreciated!
Becky Cselovszki, Superintendent of Schools
