As it was last month, continue to check your child(ren) for the following symptoms:
- New shortness of breath
- New loss of taste and smell
- New cough
- Temperature above 100.4
If any of these "Big Four" symptoms are present, please keep your child home and call the school to let us know. The Health Department recommends you then call and/or visit your primary care provider.
With regard to activities please stay informed with what restrictions and requirements are for events that you attend. Each school has different circumstances that they have to accommodate. I along with our staff will do our best to keep all informed of what is going on so please ask questions if you are unsure. For all home activities we will be giving two tickets per participant to attend. That ticket is meant for Parents/Guardians. These stipulations will be for all activities including music concerts, etc. If there are changes we will push that information out to you. As for Bowling, at this time we will not be allowing spectators in as there is not enough capacity to accommodate everyone. With that we are going to attempt to stream as many events as possible though YouTube and Facebook live. Thank you for your cooperation with this so far and as we move forward.
SCHOOL CANCELLATIONS AND EARLY DISMISSALS
School cancellations, late starts, and/or early releases will be announced via the phone messaging system and also on the following radio stations: KNEN, Norfolk, KEXL/WJAG-Norfolk and WNAX-Yankton. If no report is heard, it can be assumed that school will be in session. Now is a great time to make sure that the school has accurate and up-to-date phone numbers for you. Please call Mrs. Haase to check your contact information if your number has recently changed.
While it is never an ideal situation, there are times that school may need to be released early due to an impending storm. Please take some time to develop a plan for your children to follow if school is ever released early for inclimate weather.
