Early Dismissal on Friday (1/14) WH 100pm, HS 105pm, WASH 115pm, MMS 120pm, NO School on Monday (1/17) for MLK, No COVID Testing Monday at Lincoln School #GoSages
Our schools did see an increase in COVID cases among students and staff members last week compared to December. We are hopeful that we can get through January and then see a downward COVID trend in Piatt County and the State of Illinois. We will continue to do whatever it takes to keep our schools open safety – our biggest challenge will come if we see a spike in employee cases that we cannot manage. 96% of our employees are vaxed, but Omicron is a contagious version of COVID and it breaking through the vax. If needed we will make decisions on closures by classroom, grade level, or building instead of by the entire school district. The CDC/IDPH released new guidance this week detailing reduced five day quarantines that have been in effect this week. We have been informed that the local health department will no longer be doing contact tracing and that the state health department is overwhelmed so we will once again do contact tracing starting on Monday, January 10 in the same way we did it in the first semester. All close contacts will be contacted by the school with required exclusions. We started our in-district testing program this week at Lincoln School. We are doing 20 tests per day, Mon-Tue-Wed-Thu11AM-2PM. Enter the doors off of Wilson Street.
