District Updates - COVID

The link to the weekly case chart is above. We had NO COVID cases reported in the schools this week.


The District will lift the use of targeted masking in the schools after Spring. Any student or staff who chooses to wear a medical/cloth mask may continue to do so. Staff will no longer ask students to use masks in small group settings or other "targeted" situations.


After spring break, the response team will provide information on guidance on how families can determine how long a student should remain home with symptoms. We know as we transition from the prevalence of COVID, there is question about other illnesses and school attendance. The response team will provide reminders of general rules of thumb to use when to determining when your child can return to school after being ill.


We will NOT have a Zoom meeting on March 21 - Enjoy Spring Break! We will meet on March 14.


Weekly Zoom Meetings continue each Monday at 5:00 pm for additional information or questions about Recovery practices or other District items. Please consider joining as we discuss a variety of district topics each week. See end of newsletter for link to join.
