The following guidelines will be in place for onsite In-Person Learning beginning on August 19, 2020. The health and wellness of our students, staff, and patrons will remain the priority as we begin the 2020-2021 school year. Knowing that 100% risk-elimination under the current situation of the pandemic is not possible, several protocols will be put in place to reduce the risk of virus transmission so schools can open for students and parents. However, any human interaction during a pandemic situation carries with it some degree of risk of virus transmission.
Information provided by the Cherokee County Health Department, the Kansas State Department of Education, the Kansas Department of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control will guide the decisions of district and building leaders throughout the 2020-2021 school year. With this in mind, the practices outlined in this document may be updated or changed as new information becomes available.
