October 30, 2020

Beginning Monday, November 2, Eakin Elementary, Harris Middle School, Cascade High School, and Community High School will transition to all virtual learning until Friday, November 13. It is our intention to return to in-person learning on Monday, November 16. These four schools will dismiss as normally scheduled on Friday, October 30. This will serve as a day for students to get further instructions from their teachers and gather any belongings they may need during the virtual learning period.

This is a result of increasing COVID-19 cases and mandatory quarantines throughout these schools.

Information regarding the serving of meals during this time will be sent out to families.

Each school will be deep cleaned thoroughly to prepare for the students return.

The principal at each school will follow-up with their students and parents about logistics concerning distance learning.
