Update for Families on In-Person Learning

Many families are wondering what our next steps will be for increasing in-person learning for students as we continue to see a reduction in local transmission rates and move through the state dial on COVID risk. Next Monday is a scheduled holiday in recognition of President’s Day, and next week we will continue to have Wednesday as a remote learning day. So in-person students will attend Tuesday, Thursday and Friday the week of the 15th.

Individuals in DHS Cohorts to Quarantine - 2.2.21

With all in-person students returning to school on Monday, some families may need to double check their stops and times. If you have not already registered for bus services, please contact the Transportation Department ASAP to ensure availability.

Updated 9-R Return to In-Person Learning Matrix

Currently, district leaders and administration, as well as members of the Return to Learn task force, with input from local health authorities, continue to meet to make the necessary adjustments to the original document from July, as well as provide a matrix to the community that clearly outlines the steps for the district to return to in-person learning based on local data around the COVID-19 virus.

Update from the Superintendent

9-R Families, we are looking forward to welcoming all students in all grades back to some form of in-person learning starting Monday, February 1.

While we have had a few interruptions thanks to snow and winter finally arriving, overall things are going great and we are all so grateful to have staff and students back in the buildings.
