Good evening parents,
You’ve likely heard that one of our neighboring districts is reported to have a confirmed
student case of the COVD-19 virus, as well as one suspected staff case. The Clinton County
Public Health Department has indicated that all known contacts of these individuals have
been traced and informed. Until advised to do otherwise, our schools will continue to
operate in the hybrid mode of instructional delivery.
This situation represents a useful and important reminder about the need to stay vigilant with
regards to mask wearing, distancing, and general hygiene. Our reopening protocols have
proven successful thus far, and strict adherence to these will best ensure that our schools
stay open and that we will be able to continue to provide some level of in-person instruction.
As always, if your children display any COVID symptoms, they should not attend in-person
school, and you should contact (or expect outreach from) the School Nurse.
The resumption of in-person instruction through our hybrid system of delivery has been an
incredible collective accomplishment, and we should all be proud that we’ve begun to
recapture the education and student support which was so impeded during the Springtime
closure. With continued commitment to hygiene best-practices, we’ll sustain this for as long
Please don’t hesitate to contact your child(ren)’s building Principal if you have any questions.
Superintendent of Schools
