Hello Parents and Students, I wanted to update everyone after Thursday's announcement from the Governor and the Iowa Department of Education. We are still planning on resuming face to face instruction based on the start dates communicated previously in each district. Each district Administrative team has spent many hours preparing the Return to Learn plan for our students and staff. I will be sharing a more in depth plan early next week as we near the start of school. We will continue sharing the same message in each district, masks are not required but highly recommended to mitigate the spread. Each district has measures in place to promote safety, extra cleaning will take place, and we will do all that we can to help slow the spread. Understand, things are still rapidly changing and we will provide updates as soon as possible to keep you all informed. Please be on the lookout for additional information early next week. We are all eager to get started back up in the next few weeks, we look forward to seeing all of our students and staff! Kevin Wood Superintendent Sioux Central Clay Central Everly Laurens Marathon
Hello Sioux Central Parents and students, I hope everyone is staying safe and your son/daughter(s) are enjoying the final weeks of summer. There was some miscommunication surrounding a post from the school nurse nearly one week ago and I wanted to clarify a few things. We want all of our students to return safely come August 24, 2020. We realize there are students with underlying health concerns and we understand and will accommodate. The Statement from the earlier post stated : "In an effort to keep your child(dren) as safe and healthy as possible during the 2020-2021 school year, we are instituting new policy/procedures. One of these new policies is that all students with an underlying health condition will be required to obtain a clearance from their healthcare provider prior to coming to school, as well as a health plan/guidance regarding school attendance during this COVID 19 crisis." We are not requiring medical documentation or clearance for students to return on August 24, 2020. What we are looking for is any additional communication from parents to help our school nurse and staff ensure we are doing all we can do for our students with health conditions. We are not requiring a medical release for students to return to school, we are encouraging parents to communicate additional health concerns with the school nurse. The form that was created, is not a required form, we just want simple communication on any changes to your son or daughter's health. I hope this clears up any confusion and if you have any questions please reach out to the school. Thank you, Kevin Wood Sioux Central Superintendent
