    It is with the utmost appreciation that I write this message. We have come a long way and have covered a significant amount of unchartered territory over the past nine months. We could not have done this alone and, for this, we are incredibly thankful.

  • Learning Model Update for December 14-18, 2020

    As we shared with you earlier this week, we are planning to return to the hybrid learning model beginning Monday, December 14, 2020. Tuesday evening, the School Board indicated that if Johnson County positivity rates remained stable, we would welcome students back on-site for the week of December 14-18, 2020. The Board also instructed that the District submit an online waiver request to the State in case rates began to climb. This afternoon we were informed that the District’s waiver request was granted by the State. However, due to this late notice and the current positivity rates in our community, we will transition back to the hybrid learning model next week.

  • Extension of 100% Off-Site Learning

    As we previously shared with you, the District petitioned the State for permission to extend 100% off-site learning for an additional two week period. This was based on the COVID-19 positivity rates in Johnson County, as well as support from Johnson County Public Health and our School Board. The District was notified yesterday that we have been granted permission from the Iowa Department of Education to extend 100% off-site learning. During the Board Meeting this evening, our Board of Directors discussed the next steps regarding this new information.
