The district had 23 staff members and 129 students to test positive this week. In order to ensure the safety of the staff and student body, schools were placed on virtual learning when there were 3 outbreaks (An outbreak is when 3 students or staff in the class or sports team test positive.) in three different classes in the school setting.
Virtual learning will take place at the school sites on the dates listed below:
Magee High: January 11-21
Mendenhall Jr. High and Mendenhall High: January 12-24
Magee Elementary and Mendenhall Elementary: January 14-24
Magee Middle: January 18-25
Simpson Central: January 10-14
Safety of our staff and students remains our top priority.The mask mandate was reinstated on January 12, 2022. Upon return from virtual learning the mask mandate will remain in place as we continue to monitor COVID-19 cases.
The nursing staff at each school continues to work diligently to ensure all protocols and procedures are being followed.
We will continue to monitor and keep you updated on our progress.
Thank you,
