  • Return-to-Learn Update (9/24/20)

    We are looking forward to welcoming our students back into our schools in a hybrid learning model beginning Monday, September 28, 2020. As we shared earlier, we have implemented comprehensive health and safety mitigation techniques to help create a safe learning environment when students return. Expectations reflect guidance and consultation from the CDC, IDPH, and JCPH. One important note, face masks will be required for students and staff while in our schools, on District property, and while riding the bus or in other District vehicles. We will provide a minimum of two cloth face masks for each student; however, students are encouraged to bring their own if they so choose.

  • Return-to-Learn Update (9/18/20)

    We are regularly monitoring the daily COVID-19 positivity rates in Johnson County. The rates have continued to drop in our community over the last several days with today’s positivity rate at 8.2%. Due to this, we are excited to announce that the District will transition into a hybrid learning model beginning Monday, September 28, 2020.

  • Return-to-Learn Update (9/16/20)

    We would like to provide information regarding the process we are using to determine movement between learning models (100% off-site, hybrid, 100% on-site). Much like the decision-making process for inclement weather days, our Board of Directors has authorized the Superintendent to make decisions regarding transitions between learning models. To help guide that decision-making process, we have developed a COVID-19 Decision Matrix which was approved by the Board on September 1, 2020. The matrix was developed in collaboration with Johnson County Public Health and Johnson County Emergency Management. It provides data guidelines to determine if a shift in learning models is required for an individual building or the entire District.

  • Return-to-Learn Update (9/11/20)

    The District has continued to monitor the COVID-19 positivity rates in Johnson County. Based on a fourteen-day positivity rate of 20.4% as of Wednesday, September 9, and support from both Johnson County Public Health and our School Board, the District petitioned the State for permission to continue in a 100% off-site learning model for up to an additional two week period. Permission was granted from the State late yesterday.

  • Return-to-Learn Update (9/8/20)

    Today, the Iowa City Community School District learned of the court’s decision to deny our request for emergency injunctive relief. This relief would have allowed for local control regarding school closures during the COVID-19 pandemic. While this is not the determination that we feel is in the best interest of our community, we have prepared for this possibility.

  • Grab & Go Meal Program Update

    We would like to provide information on school meals for all students beginning September 8, 2020. As was previously announced, we will begin the school year in a 100% off-site learning model. Due to this, we will continue our Grab & Go meal program to provide breakfast and lunch to District students.
