Parents, Guardians, Students, and Staff:
I hope this email finds you well, and you are enjoying the last of our summer break.
Many of you may already be aware that our county is moving to Orange status in terms of Covid. This is due to an increased number of cases in our county. I felt that an email on the current data was warranted. I wanted to provide this information to give the data some context as it relates to our school community.
Over 98% of cases state wide and in our county are in adults who are not vaccinated. The largest group is in the 40 to 60 year olds. Less than 2% of the cases state wide and in our county are school ages. An even smaller percentage (-1%) are in the 5 to 11 year olds.
Our return to school plan is on our website. We will continue to monitor all of the information as it relates to our school community. Our efforts moving forward are a true partnership between school and home. We are looking forward to the return of students on August 4th.
Please reach out to your child's school if you have specific questions. You can reach any of our offices by calling 812 347 2407. Have a great evening.
