Re-entry Community Letter
Last Friday the Indiana Department of Education released a guidance document titled IN-CLASS (Indiana’s Considerations for Learning and Safe Schools) to consider re-entry of schools for the 2020-2021 school year. The IDOE then presented a webinar on Tuesday. Yesterday, the MSDWC COVID-19 Pandemic Re-entry Task Force team met to review the IDOE’s guidance and work on MSDWC’s Re-entry Plan.
With the guidance of the document, I am pleased to announce that the task force consisting of administrators, directors, teachers, and parents is working on the re-entry plan that recommends going back to school in person with safety precautions. The many details will be vetted over the next few weeks and then the full plan presented to the Wabash County Health Department for approval. After that approval, the tentative timeline is to take the recommendation to the MSDWC School Board at its July 14 meeting.
Health officials say that pandemic virus outbreaks can happen in waves. District and school leadership will continue to monitor the situation, and provide you with the most vital and up-to-date information.
We are looking forward to once again serving our students in person.
