Starting immediately, masks will no longer be required for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year in school facilities, at school events, or on district transportation. This includes at graduation this Sunday. There are also no limits on the number of guests who can attend graduation. Students, staff, and community members will have our full support if they choose to continue to wear masks, however, masking will now be a personal choice. This change comes as a result of new Iowa Department of Public Health guidance that was released late Friday afternoon. As a result of this guidance, students who are exposed to positive COVID-19 cases are no longer required to quarantine. Only those who test positive will be required to isolate per the new guidance. Thank you for your cooperation this year as we navigated the challenges related to COVID-19. Sincerely Marty Fonley Superintendent
