Hello Sioux Central,
I hope everyone is staying safe and well. I wanted to give an update surrounding Covid-19 here at Sioux Central. We have had 25 new student quarantines here at Sioux Central, 191 students have been quarantined since 8/24/2020 . We have had 7 new student positive cases since last week and 1 new staff case here at Sioux Central. This brings our total to 16 staff cases at Sioux Central and 3 at MCS since 8/24/2020.
With the community increase, this doesn’t come as a surprise, so we are just working hard to keep our buildings staffed so our kids can stay in school. The new mask requirement will continue to eliminate the students from being quarantined at school. As a reminder, the Twin Lakes Conference will be requiring masks at all events, both at the Junior High and High School levels for winter activities. Sioux Central will be requiring masks at all home activities as mentioned in the original guidance sent out last week. As a reminder , we will be going virtual next week with 7-12th grade students only and the elementary will attend on November 23-24th. The communication sent out yesterday has more information provided.
