Update on COVID-19 (3/18/20)

I hope that you are all well and that you are taking care of yourself and your family. I reach out tonight to reiterate the information that has been shared with you this week. Per the Governor’s recommendation, all Iowa City Community School District schools and buildings will be closed through Sunday, April 12, 2020. Based on the information we have at this time, we plan to welcome students back on Monday, April 13, 2020.

As we continue to provide additional information and updates, we encourage you to check your email, visit the District’s website, follow the District’s social media accounts, or download the District’s mobile app. Updates on COVID-19 are shared regularly on each of these communication platforms as new information becomes available.

Tomorrow there will be several pieces of critical information shared regarding the upcoming weeks. The information will include details about meals for students, building access, medication pick-ups, learning resources, mental health services, and employee pay and expectations. Please watch for this communication later tomorrow.

Take care and thank you.


Stephen F. Murley
Superintendent of Schools
Iowa City Community School District
