Regularly scheduled classes are, at this time, not being cancelled. While we understand that such cancellations are disruptive and disappointing, it is essential that we prioritize both the health and safety of our school district community as well as those visiting from elsewhere.

What about large gatherings of students and staff during the school day?

Breakfast and lunch will continue as normal, with handwashing and/or hand sanitizer use strongly encouraged and monitored. Staff meetings will continue as normal; again, we encourage practicing good personal hygiene. Other indoor large gatherings of students and staff are to be suspended immediately. These include assemblies, morning programs, celebrations of learning, talent shows, etc.

What about large gatherings of families, students, staff after or during the school day?

Large indoor gatherings such as assemblies, morning programs, celebrations of learning, talent shows, etc. during the school day and after school are cancelled.
