Today, we are reporting three new cases of COVID-19 in our school community.
Our community has seen a rise in cases and Warren County Public Health (WCPH) has reported a new strain in the county. We are consulting with our school medical director and WCPH daily, as we continue to monitor the safety and staffing of our schools.
I remain committed to keeping our students in-school as long as it is safe and feasible for all, and I recognize that we may need to pivot if/when necessary.
Thank you for all of your efforts in staying Spartan S.A.F.E and Spartan Strong.
Kyle L. Gannon
Superintendent of Schools
