11/9/2021 - Announcement to Families Regarding Remote Learning 

Bobcat Families,

Due to the spike in Covid cases at school as well as other seasonal illnesses all grades except PK will be going remote starting Monday the 15th. The exception is third grade which is going remote as of today due to a high number of exposures.

School will be normal for the remainder of this week. We feel that going remote next week and the Thanksgiving holiday will give families the opportunity to get better. For the past two weeks students and staff absences have been at a high-level and we have been struggling to cover classes and run bus routes due to staff being ill.

Staff who are not ill will be at school next week for remote learning.

Families who need meal assistance next week please let your teacher know and we will have meals for pick up.

This week student activities will continue as normal including the FFA oyster fry and all athletic activities.

Next week’s student activities may continue if students and adults take a Covid test and test negative, we can provide the tests.

I apologize for this huge inconvenience, but we feel it is in the best interest for the health and safety of our students and staff.

Except for third grade students all students are expected to attend the remainder of this week to prepare for remote learning next week.

Thank you,

Mike McFalls

Superintendent
