Testing Recommendations from MDH
MDH announced a recommendation for all school-age youth returning to school, youth sports, or extracurricular activities, and their families, to get tested every two weeks through the end of the school year. While it is not a requirement, regular testing complements other safety measures already in place, such as masking and social distancing.
Schools and youth organizations can send messages and resources available on COVID-19 Testing for Kids and Families to families to encourage testing. Getting tested every two weeks from now until the end of the school year can help keep schools open and sports operating, and ensure we are limiting the spread of COVID-19.
Uptick in COVID-19 Cases
We are hearing across the state and from our county officials, that there is an uptick in COVID-19 cases amongst youth, in particular to youth sports. There have been 18 teams across the state that have had to pull out of playoff competition due to COVID-19 cases. While our school cases have remained low, we ask that everyone continue being diligent in helping slow the spread so that we can keep our children in school. We are in the home stretch!

The E-Learning Day Plan for HLWW Schools has been updated and approved by the school board. The changes primarily center around the middle and high school day. There will be no special schedule used for an E-Learning Day. Instead, students will attend classes following their normal schedule for that particular day, attending classes virtually.
