We appreciate all of the parent support our health office staff has been given. We understand and want to work with families as much as possible as we also navigate things like allergies, colds, stomach viruses, strep throat, etc. We want to remind everyone that the best way to handle possible cases is to remember to “stay home” if you or your child is sick.
* * * * * HLWW E-Learning Day Plan - Posted 9-14-2021
We ask that everyone review the plan and reach out to your child’s principal if you have questions.
There are many changes in our plan when you compare it to last year, so we would like to highlight a few of the most notable:
- Face coverings are recommended for K-12 students for indoors, but not required. As a family, please discuss what you would like your child to do when it comes to face coverings.
- Face coverings are required on school transportation. In consideration of the CDC requirement, as well as knowing that we are returning to a one-route system which means busses will be closer to capacity, with multiple grade levels combined, this requirement was made part of our plan.
- Close contacts will be traced by school staff, and parents of close contacts will be contacted, but they will not be required to quarantine.
- Entire families will not be required to quarantine if one child is sent home due to symptoms; however, if more than one child in a family has symptoms, a quarantine may be required as per the health office staff.
- 3 feet of social distancing will be used as much as space provides within the classroom setting. Other spaces will continue to be evaluated and there may be some social distancing used in other locations, as space provides, while still allowing students flexibility.
This plan is subject to potential change based on guidance we receive from health officials and based on what we are experiencing in our school or community. Major changes will be discussed with our COVID-19 Council and the school board. We will continue to be diligent about the monitoring of cases and are in constant contact with other schools in our area and county health officials.

We want to thank all of our families for their continued support as we work through the COVID recommendations and guidance.
Again, please reach out to your child’s principal if you have questions about our plan.
Have a great rest of the summer! We look forward to a great 2021-22 school year!
