Schools for two weeks, from March 16 through March 27, for all students and
employees. Any essential staff who needs to report will be notified by their
supervisor. Our employee in service day which was scheduled for tomorrow
is also cancelled.
While we believe it is important to keep schools open for learning, we do not want to unnecessarily put our community at risk or create anxiety as our state and community face the uncertainty of the COVID-19 virus. We will make further decisions as more information is available.
