Our District-Wide Reopening Plan

Offering high quality, in-person instruction within our school communities is what we would hope to see this fall, yet the safety of students and staff is a high priority and guide our decision making as the school year approaches. 

The School District and the Board of Trustees have approved a reopening plan for the start of the school year with different operational phases for instruction following local, regional and CDC public-health guidelines. A four phase plan will guide the district through a gradual reopening of our schools.

At this time, the district has made the decision to open in Phase II.

The district’s plans are subject to change based on the evolving situation regarding COVID-19. We will try to keep you as informed as possible in the coming weeks as we receive new information and guidance regarding potential changes in phases. Check this webpage often for the latest information.
