Superintendent's Report: 1/24/2022
We were glad to welcome our students and staff back in-person today after a week of remote learning. Our student absenteeism was just under 12% today (1/24/22). That’s higher than a normal day, but considering the pandemic is surging and it’s flu season, that’s not entirely surprising. Our staff absenteeism improved today. Had we have been in-person last week, more than 60 employees would not have been able to work in-person due to a COVID diagnosis or quarantine. Today, we had 13 staff members out for COVID-related reasons.
Last year, the Muscle Shoals Education Foundation invested $90,595.00 into our schools and classroom. It’s the highest amount ever! We certainly appreciate all stakeholders who contribute to MSEF, especially if you are a monthly donor.
