The District will monitor (and post) active cases of staff and students in the school district. If the number of active cases as a percent of total Individuals remains below 5%, we plan to maintain the “Return to Normal” planning.
Should numbers rise above 5%, the Superintendent will request a Board of Education meeting (Regular or Special Meeting) to determine action (if any) to be revisited or revised.
