The current upsurge of COVID 19 in our communities has led to concerns for the safety of our staff and students; therefore, we are now creating a distant learning plan for the start of the school year. In the initial plan for an on campus start we prepared the campus based on the guidelines from the CDC; however, the acknowledgement of keeping our high schoolers 6 feet apart with masks during unstructured time was always a concern. Now, with the current research, it is clear we would be putting both our students and staff at risk if we begin the school year on campus. CLICK FOR MORE >>
