District Mitigation

The district will continue to follow Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) guidance. The IDPH most recent guidance on COVID19 and other illnesses can be found in this link. It is important to monitor your child for symptoms and keep your child home if symptoms are evident as directed by public health.

Iowa law prevents mandating mask use, but the district welcomes their use by those choosing to wear them. We encourage everyone to consult with your personal family physician or health care provider with decisions related to COVID19 and other childhood illnesses.

School Lunches

They will be free again this year for ALL students.


Yes, students that want a locker will be able to request one....we will NOT be assigning every student a locker. A form will go out sometime during the week of 8.19 via their school email that asks students if they want one. Their number will then be emailed to them so they know where it is. If they choose not to have one, they can carry their items in the backpacks. If you have more questions, please reach out to the main office.
