Health & Safety Protocols

Iowa City Community School District Health and Safety Guidelines for the 2021-22 School Year

Message on Masks and Vaccines



To help slow the spread of COVID-19, the Iowa City Community School District strongly encourages universal indoor mask use for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to our schools, regardless of vaccination status. This is based on guidance from the CDC. In addition, the President’s Executive Order on domestic transportation requires students and staff to wear a face-covering while on a school bus or while utilizing other District-provided transportation.


In addition, the District strongly encourages eligible individuals to get the COVID-19 vaccine. For individuals 12 years of age and older who have not yet received the COVID-19 vaccine, this vaccine locator may be used to find a provider near you.

One Book Two Book Writing Submission

Students in grades 1-8 in Iowa City-Cedar Rapids Corridor area school districts, or home school students in those equivalent grades, are encouraged to submit one page of writing for the 2022 One Book Two Book festival from the Iowa City UNESCO City of Literature. This can be any type of writing: story, essay, poem, song lyric, graphic novel page, etc. The piece must be an original work, written this school year, and in polished form – ready for publication. It should be on one side of an 8.5x11 page. It can be single-spaced, but must be at least 12-pt. and in Times or equivalent font. The page should have margins of 1” on each side. Submissions that are longer than one page will not be considered.


The student’s name should be in the top right corner of the piece. The piece must have a title or be labeled “Untitled.” On the separate Student Submission Cover Form, the following information is required: Student name, grade, school, parent or guardian’s name and contact e-mail and phone number. This form is attached. In addition, it can be found as a Google Doc at http://bit.ly/OneBookTwoBook. This can be filled out and saved as part of a document along with the submission.


Student work, including the cover sheet, must be submitted to the City of Literature by Monday, Dec. 13, 2021. They can be mailed to the City of Literature, 123 S. Linn St., Iowa City, IA 52240; or e-mailed as a Microsoft Word attachment or PDF to info@iowacityofliterature.org. If using Google Docs, the submission also can be shared with info@iowacityofliterature.org (Please be sure to set your Google Docs sharing settings so that we can view your submission). The file name should include the student’s school, grade and name (e.g. Hoover-4-HannahSmith or Garner-6-JasonJones). If using Google Docs, please download the file as either a Microsoft Word or PDF document. If the submission is handwritten or drawn, either scan and email a PDF or mail the original. Originals will be held for one month after the festival; it is the guardian’s responsibility to follow up if it should be returned.


The student work will be judged by a team from ACT in Iowa City. Recognized students will be honored at a “Write Out Loud” event during One Book Two Book in February 2022. Two grade level winners will be chosen, one in each of the following categories:


“The Write Stuff”: For language, clarity, structure, and emotional impact.

“From the Heart”: For creativity, passion, and expressiveness.


These students will be invited to read their winning submissions. In addition, a percentage of all students whose submissions are deemed to be of outstanding quality also will be honored with a “certificate of distinction.” They also will be invited to attend the “Write Out Loud” event.


All recognized students will receive certificates and prizes at the event.


The grade-level prize winners will have their work published in a booklet available at the festival.
