October 31, 2020

Over the last week our cases of students and staff testing positive has seen a dramatic increase.    We have been in communication with our Health Department and other school districts in similar positions.  As a result and in order to slow the spread, we are going to extend our off campus learning through the week of November 2 - 6.  We are hopeful that we will be back with on campus learning on November 9.  The remote learning activities (Alternative Methods of Instruction) will be as follows:

Monday and Tuesday's lessons are already preloaded on students' chromebooks and are available without the need for Internet access.  Students will turn these lessons in on the next day they are back on campus.

Monday - AMI #4 
Tuesday - AMI #5 

Wednesday through Friday's lessons and videos will be available on teacher's Google Classroom pages.  Information on Google Meets for help sessions will also be available.  These lessons and meets will require Internet access.  If you indicated on your form at the beginning of the year that you did not have Internet access, we will have flash drives for students with the lessons/videos loaded on them for distribution.  Please contact your child's building office if you have lost Internet access since the beginning of school and they will get you set up with a flash drive.  Wifi Internet access can also be obtained at the HS Gym Parking Lot for anyone interested in accessing and downloading the lessons there.

Wednesday - AMI #6
Thursday - AMI #7
Friday - AMI #8

If your child is in the virtual learning platform, they will continue on that platform at this time and will not need to complete the AMI lessons.

We will continue to serve drive-through breakfast and lunch in the elementary school loop between Noon and 1:00 each day.  This is free to all children 0-18 years of age. 

Please... Please... contact your child's building office if we can be of any assistance.  We know this is hard on children and families.  The safety of our students, staff, and community will remain our priority.  Faculty and staff will be on campus working and available to be contacted through email as well.  Please let us know how we can help.

Stay turned to our website and your email for more information.

Dear Parent(s) or Guardian(s),

To say this year has brought an abundance of challenges would be an understatement.  We realize that these challenges have not just been on our campus but many of our families have had to deal with things as well.  We also recognize the great need for schools to be open for our students and will do our best to continue to do that when we believe we can do so safely.

However, due to the growing rate this week of positive COVID cases of both students and staff on our campus, we are going to move to remote learning for Wednesday, October 28 through Friday, October 30 while we fully assess the situation in front of us.  The safety of our kids, staff, and community is our first priority in this decision.  We will continue to communicate with the Iron County Health Department throughout this time.

All students have access (whether they have Internet or not) to 5 days of Alternative Methods of Instruction either preloaded on their chromebooks (MS/HS/CTC) or in the black folder that went home with students in the Elementary School.  Your child will need to complete AMI days #1-3 for this Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Should you have any questions with accessing those, please contact your child’s building office at 573-546-9700. 

If your child is in the virtual learning platform, they will continue on that platform at this time and will not need to complete the AMI lessons.

We will continue to serve drive-through breakfast and lunch in the elementary school loop between Noon and 1:00 each day.  This is free to all children 0-18 years of age. 

We hope to have a decision on next week, as soon as possible, as we know families have to make plans for childcare.  Please continue to be flexible with us.  We are trying our best to navigate through this with both our kids’ safety and their educational needs in mind.  Our goal is to provide on-campus learning to those who wish to choose that option, we just have to do so both safely and effectively.

Respectfully,

Dr. Brian Beard
