COVID-19 Update

January 10, 2021

Dear Families:  

The District was notified of a high school student who has tested positive over the holiday break and he/she has NOT been in school since before Christmas.  This positive case will NOT count towards the rolling 14-day count, as our schools were closed and students were not in session.  Again, this individual was not in school this week as he/she was on quarantine from exposure over the holidays. Thus, in alignment with our Health and Safety Plan, as well as the attestation that the District signed, we are able to remain open.  See below for the current case numbers at each building as of this morning.  


  • Senior High - 0 active cases 
  • Jr. High - 1 active case (notified families/staff previously)
  • Eisenhower - 0 active cases
  • Horace Mann - 0 active cases
  • Ben Franklin - 0 active cases
  • East Pike - 0 active cases

As always, the number of confirmed cases can change at any time.  Many experts have predicted that January could be a difficult month in regard 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 needs to make a change rather quickly.  


Respectfully,

 

 

Mr. Michael J. Vuckovich

IASD Superintendent
