The district will be able to be mask optional starting Monday, October 18. There were 11 new cases of COVID reported for Bourbon County this week, and there is not a building above 2% positivity rate. I have created new, real-time spreadsheets for the public to view on the district website. The links are below. Please refer to these for your reference.
COVID-19 Attendance Dashboard:
Test to Stay and Learn:
The district's budget for the testing program has been approved by KDHE. We are still waiting on approval of our application, which should be received early next week. CHC is working to get staff hired for the testing. Once the staff are hired, we will work on the logistics of the testing program with CHC, and we will communicate this information once it is completed.
Mask on School Transportation:
Masks will still need to be worn on school transportation. This is a Federal Order that school districts must follow.
All buildings are asking students to always carry a mask with them to be prepared if a mask is needed due to a discovered COVID-19 outbreak in a building.
