In an Email sent to students, parents and faculty – Clinton Central Al Remaly has cancelled in-person learning due to concerns over Covid-19 positive cases.
I was hoping to not have to make this call and I apologize that it is late on Sunday afternoon, but there are going to be some changes to the daily schedules at Clinton Central. We have had a total of 10 COVID-19 positive cases throughout the corporation, 3 over the past three days. With the contact tracing that has been conducted, about 25% of the students at the jr/sr high school are impacted. This does not mean that 25% of the students have COVID-19, it means they are considered close contacts and are required to quarantine for 14 days.
For Clinton Central Elementary, all students will be on remote learning for 1 week only starting Monday, August 24th. The elementary students will resume with their regular school schedule on Monday, August 31st. Why only one week? There have been no new cases of COVID-19 outside of the 4th grade section. The daily structure/schedule of the elementary is much easier to control.
For Clinton Central Jr/Sr High School, all students will begin remote learning for 2 weeks starting on Monday, August 24th. Instead of resuming with a regular schedule, the jr/sr high school students will transition to a Hybrid Schedule beginning on Tuesday, September 8th. A hybrid schedule allows us to have only 50% of the students in the building and allows us to ensure social distancing of 6 feet or more. For these 2 weeks, all extracurricular activities are postponed.
