12/07/2020 COVID-19 UPDATE

Unfortunately the numbers of new COVID cases released today, for the past 14 days, has put Coos County in the red, as it relates to the General Metrics in the Ready Schools Safe Learners Guidance. With this change in county rating, we must transition to Comprehensive Distance Learning. In planning for this transition, we will have a normal school day tomorrow (Tuesday the 8th) and this will be students’ last day of onsite school. All students will leave school Tuesday, with their Chromebook and any textbooks they need. The elementary school will have no school the remainder of the week while staff prepare for CDL. Comprehensive Distance Learning for elementary students will begin on Tuesday the 15th. The high school will really not see any change except we will not be bringing students in for Limited in Person Instruction for the time being. We will remain in CDL until the county’s case rate gets back to yellow, which is under 100 cases per 100,000. Food Service, in partnership with our transportation department, will begin delivering meals on Wednesday to those families that need/want them. The elementary school cafeteria will be open for onsite pick up like we did last spring as well. Families can pick up meals on site from 11:00-12:00 daily. There will be no meals delivered during the winter break from December 21st through January 1st. All athletics and activities will be canceled until further notice.

 

 

Respectfully,
