  • Transition to 100% Off-Site Learning Model

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

  • Updates to Inclement Weather Guidelines

    The seasons have started to change and winter weather is right around the corner. We want to share some changes to our approach to inclement weather days this year and provide a reminder of where this information can be found. Moving forward, the District will provide online instruction on days when the weather prevents us from having in-person classes. Rather than our traditional “snow days”, these days will now be considered “virtual learning days”.
