9-R Update for the Community - 10.20.20

Dear 9-R Community, We have officially made it through the first quarter of the school year, and have thankfully had minimal COVID-19 impacts on students and staff. We thank all the staff, students and parents who have made this possible through their diligence and support of the issued guidelines. The cohort model is allowing continuation of school when a small population is impacted. And also we are appreciative that we have only had one positive case in the district, which was at the very beginning of the school year.

Schools Closed/Student Enrichment Days

The two days are October 30 and November 2; these are in addition to the already identified teacher work day/school closure of November 30. Enrichment opportunities will be available to families of students in grades k-6 at no cost to the families allowing them to be supervised during regular school hours. Children with significant needs will also have an opportunity to be served at the middle and high school grades. Parents of such students will be contacted in the coming week.
