COVID-19 Increase

This past week has brought some positive cases to the district. The impact has been great in grades 7-12. The K-6 population has been impacted though. This virus is here and is effecting students. We all need to do are part so in person learning can continue.


The school is asking that you screen your child/children every morning before school with these simple questions and checking of temperature.

*Please take temperature every day. Fever over 100.4F student stays home until fever free without medication for 24 hours.

*Does student have a persistent cough or shortness of breath that is new? Yes, student stays home.

*Does my student have any of the following that are new or worsened? Muscle aches, chills, sore throat, headache, loss of taste or smell, vomiting or diarrhea) Yes, student stays home.


This is a difficult, frustrating and stressful time. We need to continue to work together to finish up this school year strong and healthy.
