As you are likely aware: people in areas all around the world are experiencing the respiratory illness COVID 19, caused by the novel Corona Virus. I encourage you to review these medical sources to learn more about the virus and how to prevent transmission. There is no vaccine developed yet, but the following actions can help prevent or reduce transmission:
The District will continue to share information about this emerging health issue with you directly on our website and Facebook pages. We are in communication with local health officials to stay abreast of any changes ore developments in this area.
We are also reminding you to intentionally combat stigma. Stigma will not help fight the illness; sharing up to date information will.
The District will continue to clean facilities to help prevent any possible transmission of the virus and the drivers are committed to clean buses as much as possible. If any changes are made to school scheduling, closing school, or attendance policies, we will let you know right away.
