Dear Parents and Guardians,
The school year is off to a great start and everything appears to be going well. As the COVID cases continue to climb we wrestle with making the best decisions for your child’s safety. While doing this, we strive to provide the best educational experience for our students and staff. It is our opinion that we accomplish this by having students and staff in our buildings for in-person learning. We believe that being in physical attendance at our schools is the best situation for students and staff. We are confident our buildings are well cleaned, students are well supervised, and everyone is doing their best to practice social distancing and handwashing. The quarantine process is taxing on all parties involved and we would like to minimize the spread within schools. However, in order for us to help protect students and staff and keep our buildings safe, we need to work together.
We understand the quarantining process may inhibit certain student’s and staff’s educational experiences. Therefore, if the student or staff member is symptom free, we want them in our classrooms and we need them in attendance for their own emotional and educational well-being. We would like your help with the following to allow the schools to protect students and staff and ask individuals to act responsibly to protect themselves and those around them.
Requests for Modification of Quarantine Parameters
District Protocols in Effect
As we move into our fall sports seasons and homecoming events, please keep the protection of our communities and schools a priority. Many of the cases that showed up in the last school year were associated with large social gatherings.
As educators of approximately 1,200 students, we are cognizant of the need to keep our students and staff safe while providing the very best education possible. Thank you for helping us practice safe social protocols and stay the course to protect in-person learning for the entire school year. A reminder, this is all fluid as we move forward, it may change if we have an increase in cases.
