March 15, 2020

The Governor recommended tonight that all Iowa schools will be closed for four weeks until April 13, 2020. In the short term that means our schools are inaccessible except for designated staff.  All childcare (Beyond the Bell, Live Y’ers), athletic practices, and activities are canceled effective immediately. Please know we are working through all options for our staff, students, and families and will have more information soon.

In addition, the Governor plans to announce more information tomorrow and we will communicate with you once we know more in regards to the next steps. 

We will continue to work with the Governor, and state legislators upon their return, on a plan for students and staff. As this situation changes rapidly, please know we will communicate information with you as soon as we can, which more clearly defines school closure expectations.
