I wanted to provide an update regarding COVID-19. Earlier this week, you received a communication stating that two additional staff members at Schneider Elementary tested positive; additionally, there are three staff members at Schneider Elementary that are considered close contacts and will be quarantining through October 4. Due to the number of positive cases and close contacts, Schneider is labeled as an outbreak by DeWitt Piatt Bi-County Health Department through October 4. We are thankful that students were not exposed as they were fully remote during this timeframe. All of our school buildings have been fully disinfected in preparation for next week. Monday, 9.28.2020 is a School Improvement Day with no student attendance. Beginning Tuesday, 9.28.2020, we will resume our hybrid learning model. Blue learners will attend on Tuesday, 9.28.2020; Silver learners will learn remotely and report their attendance with the form on the webpage. While we strongly encourage in-person attendance on assigned days, if you have a concern, please contact your building principal. Please note that for the accuracy of your student’s attendance record, we ask families of Blue and Silver learners to complete the attendance form on the webpage for all assigned remote days. Please enter the student’s name with the same spelling each day. Much extra work is required from secretaries and teachers on a daily basis when student attendance is not reported, or reported with nicknames or different spellings on different days. Thank you.
