2022-2023 District Health & Safety Plan

Dear Panther Families,


We wanted you to be aware that the District Health & Safety Plan for 2022-2023 was reviewed on Thursday, September 15th at the School Board meeting. There is no longer an expectation for contact tracing and quarantines for healthy individuals. The CDC no longer recommends quarantines for staff and students in K-12 schools who were exposed to COVID-19 if they are not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Therefore, we do not plan to send messages to families of children who were close contacts to a positive individual.


As always, students and staff who are feeling ill for any reason are expected to stay home from school. We also request that parents of students who test positive for COVID-19 continue to notify the school nurse of the positive test and follow instructions provided by their health care providers and school nurse.


If you have any questions, please contact your building principal or school nurse. To view our 2022-2023 District Health & Safety Plan, please visit our website's COVID-19 Information page. Thank you and have a healthy school year.


Dr. Troy Price

Assistant Superintendent
