There will be free COVID testing beginning Thursday, Nov. 19 and continue through Saturday, Nov. 21, 9 to 5 each day. This will be a drive through test, and it is an oral swab test. This we be located behind the post office. The results should be back to the participants within 48 to 96 hours. Positive results participants will receive a medical consultation from a provider. Individuals may register online prior to this at: gogettested.com or they can register as they drive through for the test.
Our staff has been hit very hard by the virus in the last few days. We have a significant portion of our student body quarantined, also. Decisions are extremely hard to make during this time, but I am making one that I think is in the best interest of our school and community. We will start 100 percent remote instruction tomorrow. Our student body will come back face-to-face on the 30th of November. Our students must log in daily to get credit for attendance. Extracurriculars are cancelled until further notice. If you are a band member, Mr.Stephenson will reach out to you about your district competition. Our staff will be working 7:45 - 3:45 everyday to answer your questions. Staff will take the week of the 23rd off for Thanksgiving break, just as normally scheduled. We will have meals available in front of the elementary from 10:30-11:30 everyday. We will not be delivering meals, but anyone can pick up on behalf of someone else.
This decision doesn't come easy and I understand the burden it puts on everyone. I just want to keep everyone as safe as possible during this huge spike in cases. Please help keep our students from gathering in groups. If you are in quarantine, you need to remain in quarantine until your time is up. Please stay safe and help do your part in slowing the virus down.

Just a reminder that we are all in this together to fight the virus. We still need your help with the virus and approaching flu season. Once again, if your child is displaying symptoms please stay home. If they have been around a positive case, they are automatically quarantined. If someone has been tested in the household family, everyone is quarantined pending results. Please remember we need to be notified if someone has been tested to help slow the spread. Communication is the key to help everyone involved. Stay Warrior Strong!
