FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT
From Superintendent Wellen
Good Evening Everyone,
Tomorrow December 23rd will be a weather E-Learning day The storm watch has become a warning this afternoon, with ice expected on the roads in the morning.
The goal tomorrow is to start the break out on the right foot for all of our kids. Office staff will be working from home and will be available by phone and email. Teachers and paras will work from home and connect with students in need of assistance. There will be no new academic assignments. There will be homework help for those who need it or and an opportunity to connect.
On the bright side, at least it was the weather that took us down not COVID! It almost feels like a little normal is returning in the strangest of ways.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!! Make quality time for yourselves and your families!

Thanks to everyone's efforts we have staff back from quarantine and are able to run all grades in-person again beginning Monday. We know things can change in a moment's notice. So thank you all in advance for your continued vigilance in protecting yourselves and others from the spread of COVID. It is the low rate of positive tests in the school system that allow us to continue even with numbers in the counties continuing to grow. Please know these decisions are made with consultation and approval of public health and MDH.

Today the administrative team decided to move the high school grades 9-12 to distance learning for the rest of the week. Please remember that with virtual conferences and staff development, this only affects Tuesday and Wednesday. This is due to staffing shortages. Our hope is that we will be able to return to in-person learning Monday, November 16th. As we have seen, the quarantine of close contacts can have a huge impact on us even though those contacts have not been testing positive. Currently of our 170 staff two are positive and 14 are in quarantine. Out of our student body of 755 in-person learners, there are currently two students out with positive tests and over 100 in quarantine. Taking this data into consideration, we are confident that, at least for the time being, we can stay in-person for grades PreK-8 and return to in-person for the high school on Monday.
