COVID-19 INFORMATION AND UPDATES

IN-PERSON LEARNING OPEN TO ALL STUDENTS K-12

The district is now operating its in person learning model for students of all grades, K-12. School is currently full time, five days a week, in person. We are not currently offering an online only model of instruction.

Some individual classrooms may be temporarily moved to remote learning based on numbers of positive cases within class cohorts. Families will be notified directly by their student's building administration in this instance. We recommend you review our Remote Learning Plan if you have questions. If you need assistance with internet connectivity, or other technical assistance, during an extended stay at home, please visit our Tech Help page for more information.

Students and staff should stay home if symptomatic and follow the Department of Health decision tree pictured below. Testing is available through the school in accordance with Department of Health guidelines, and individuals should contact their school nurse for details.
