Parents, Guardians, Students, and Staff:
North Harrison Community Schools will shift to Non Traditional and eLearning Instruction starting Monday, November 16th through Tuesday, November 24th. We then have our Thanksgiving break. Students will return to our buildings on Monday, November 30th. This was not a decision we had planned to make and recognize the disruption this will cause to families. We have a large number of students, teachers, and support staff on quarantine at this time. This does not mean that they are all positive for Covid but rather have had to quarantine due to potential exposures. We simply do not have enough personnel to operate in a safe manner. The stark reality is that our schools are a reflection of our community, and the number of cases in our state, region, and county have increased dramatically.
We do plan to distribute meals for those who wish to receive them. We will be sending further information on food distribution later today or over the weekend. We also will have the food giveaway with Community Services on Wednesday night at NHMS from 5:30pm to 6:30pm for everyone. Extra curricular activities will continue so long as they can be done in a safe manner and follow all guidelines. Please know that we disinfect and fog all of our buildings every night. However, this will allow us to go even deeper in the cleaning process as a further precaution for when we return.
Stay safe and hug your kids,
Dr. Lance Richards
