Update on COVID-19 and School Closures

As you may have seen last night, Governor Reynolds made the recommendation to close Iowa schools for four weeks in response to the confirmed community spread of Coronavirus (also known as COVID-19).  As a district, we will follow Governor Reynolds’ recommendation and our schools will be closed until Monday, April 13, 2020.  The Governor has scheduled a public announcement later today and we anticipate the release of additional information regarding the closures. 

At this time, the closure affects all school programming, including before- and after-school activities, all athletic and extracurricular practices and competitions, all facility rentals, and all weekend events.  However, BASP programming and the school-based health clinics will remain open during the week of March 16-20. 

We are actively preparing plans for continued learning and school meal services throughout the closure.  Details on these plans will be shared within our daily updates to families and staff as soon as things are finalized. 

Thank you for your patience and your understanding as we work together through this incredibly trying situation.  We will continue to provide updates as information becomes available.  Please take care of yourselves.
