• 2021-22 Learning Updates  gauge showing full time in person learning

    2021-22 Safe Return Plan

    Our district is committed to providing a learning environment that protects student and staff health and safety. The details of our safe return plan are under development (8/17/21). This is what we know so far:

    • All students, staff, and visitors will be required to wear masks while in our facilities and busses (no matter their vaccination status). Masks can be removed for outdoor activities when students are not in large groups and closer than 3' apart
    • Families will be required to perform a health screening of their child(ren) each day before they arrive at school.
    • Physical distancing will be 3' in classrooms, 6' in lunchrooms to the degree possible
    • We will promote and provide ample opportunities for students to wash/sanitize their hands.
    • We will clean high-touch areas daily 
    • Additional details regarding sports and performing arts will be shared when they are determined.
