Dear Parents, This message has two main points I want to emphasize, please see the bottom for those points. As you all know we have tried to keep you updated on the positive covid cases in the school. This is becoming more problematic as many are not being tested and are simply staying home when they are ill. THANK YOU all for keeping your children home when they are ill. This past Wednesday we had 9 positive cases identified, yet nearly 10% of our students were out ill. I have visited with our health department, local hospital and viewed a webinar from UNMC. All are sending the same message – THE NEXT FEW WEEKS ARE GOING TO BE TROUBLESOME, AND THE CASES ARE GOING TO INCREASE. I specifically asked if taking a few days off of school would help and they all stated NO. Points. If you keep your child at home for two or more days, we highly recommend that they wear a mask when they return to school for five days. It is our plan to continue with school if at all possible, knowing that dismissing will have no impact on our illness. However, yesterday we had 22 teachers, staff, administration out due to illness. If this number increases, we will be required to call off school simply due to not having enough staff. Unfortunately, there will not be much advanced notice for our families. Please make arrangements in the event we have to call off school due to staff illness. I will end on a positive note!! This surge in Covid is expected to be short lived in nature and hopefully we will get through this bubble in the next few weeks.
