• November Newsletter 2020


    We just finished up our first quarter of school, and I am extremely pleased with the efforts made by our staff to make our opening plan a success. At the date of this newsletter, we have had one student and three staff members test positive for COVID-19.  As a result of those cases, 16 students were placed in quarantine. We have also had 5 students placed in quarantine because of exposure outside of the school setting. Those numbers are phenomenal compared to other districts. While we don’t want even one person to be isolated or quarantined, we have to feel fortunate that we have not had more impacted by this virus.


    As we enter the winter season, we realize that sickness is inevitable. I would emphasize again the importance of staying home when we are sick with symptoms related to the virus. I am more convinced than ever before of the importance of in-person learning for our students. While we are prepared and ready to serve our students remotely, the vast majority of our students need the experience of being in school for their learning, their socialization, and for their participation in activities. We will continue to do our best to follow the plan that we set up in July. We will make changes as necessary, but most importantly, we remind everyone to continue following the protocols put in place. Thanks go out to our communities for supporting our efforts in this tough time. Our students are the benefactors of the commitments made to have them in school.
