COVID-19 Update - Junior High School

January 7, 2021

Dear Families:  

The District was notified of a staff member who has tested positive.  This staff member was in school Monday, Tuesday, and half of the day on Wednesday.  This positive case will count towards the rolling 14-day count as the individual was in school and students were present.  Thus, in alignment with our Health and Safety Plan, as well as the attestation that the District signed, we are able to remain open at this time.  See below for the current case numbers at each building as of this morning.  

  • Senior High - 0 active cases 
  • Jr. High - 1 active cases
  • Eisenhower - 0 active cases
  • Horace Mann - 0 active cases
  • Ben Franklin - 0 active cases
  • East Pike - 0 active cases

As you know, the District has signed an attestation that requires the District to close once we reach a certain number of cases in any particular building.  Our range is 2-4 cases per building.  As you can realize, the number of confirmed cases can change at any time.  Many experts have predicted that January could be a difficult month in regards to the pandemic.  Thus, we are asking families to be prepared in case a switch to 100% remote learning is required.  We understand the terrible inconvenience a closure causes our families; however, we have a responsibility to make you aware of the possibility.  My goal is not to cause panic, rather it is to help make you aware of the current situation in case the District and/or a building needs to make a change rather quickly.  


Mr. Michael J. Vuckovich

IASD Superintendent
