• Alert:

    Attention Students, Parents & Community Members:

    As many of you may already be aware, the numbers of staff and students out for COVID related issues has drastically increased within the last few days.  Last night (September 8, 2021), the Board of Trustees voted to make the following changes to our Safe Return to School Plan in an effort to keep our buildings open with students in school full-time:

    1.  Temperature Checks in the morning to ensure we don't have sick students coming to school.

    • At the Jr/Sr High, this will be done as students enter the building at the main entrance and/or in the shop
    • At the Elementary, this will be done in classrooms by teachers as that is where students enter each morning. 

    2.  A temporary "face covering" requirement beginning Monday and continuing through the next board meeting (4 weeks).  This requirement will be reevaluated at that board meeting.
