Return to School:
On Thursday afternoon Governor Reynolds announced that Iowa schools are recommended to be closed through April 30th.
These days were not forgiven as were the prior missed days. Schools will need to select from three options for continued learning. These models or options are cited below:
A school district may use different models for different grade levels as well as start under one model and move to another.
At this time the district will be operating under the “Voluntary Continuous Learning” model. It may choose to move to the “Required Continuous Learning” model as we move through this situation.
Faculty Use and Access:
All buildings are closed except to non-essential staff. Should a need arise for entry please contact the building administrator or district office. Building administrators will be coordinating device and other materials pick-up over the next few days. Please follow their directives.
Offices will not be covered at all times. E-mail is the preferred method of initial communication. Contact information is found below:
District Phone Number: 319-754-6567

Remember that school lunches are served from 11:00 to 1:00 daily. They are free to any child 18 and under regardless of district of enrollment or residence.

If there are any activities that I have missed but are scheduled during this time of closure they are all postponed with a date TBD.
The purpose of this closure is to provide social distancing. Social distancing increases the space between people and reduces the chance of contagion and spread. It is only effective if we all do our part. We STRONGLY recommend all of our students, staff, and families to follow guidelines shared by the Centers for Disease Control. Do not gather in groups, stay home as much as possible, and reduce your direct interactions with others. For further guidance please see the CDC recommendations on helping our community stay safe and healthy.
