Letter From Superintendent - Illness Policy

Dear Parents/Guardians:

As the number of COVID, flu, and other illnesses increase in our school district, we remain committed to
providing onsite learning for all students.

The steps we can all take to support this is as follows:

1. If your child is sick, please do not send them to school. Students that come to school sick or with
symptoms will not be able to attend class and will be sent home. The illness policy on when to send your
child to school or have them stay home is provided below.

2. Masking is recommended to help mitigate the spread of coronavirus, but not required in buildings. Per
federal regulations, masks are required for students and staff on buses.

3. Hand hygiene and washing hands frequently is one of the best ways to mitigate the spread of
communicable diseases.

4. Physical distancing to the greatest extent possible also mitigates the spread of coronavirus.

Our biggest obstacle to remain onsite is adequate staffing. If you or someone you know is willing to become a substitute for our district, they can apply online at the district website. Substitutes also earn a $100 bonus for every 10 days or 70 hours worked. Teacher substitutes earn $116-120 a day and classified substitutes earn $12 an hour or $96 a day.

We greatly appreciate your cooperation with these steps to help us maintain onsite learning for all. Thank you for your continued support as we continue to navigate through these challenging times.

Dr. Linda Filpula
