As of now schools are being instructed to remain open by the Governor and the Iowa Department of Public Health. It is important that we rely on guidance from our state officials to help direct our decisions. If you choose to keep your student(s) at home during this time please contact your school and let them know and the reason why.
Our custodial staff is working diligently to keep our schools clean and sanitized. I would encourage you to refer to the Iowa Department of Public Health website, https://idph.iowa.gov/ for more information.
I know this is unfamiliar territory, and we all have apprehension however I appreciate your patience and understanding. This is an ever changing situation and as I receive more information I will be communicating to you again.
Kris Einck, Superintendent of South Winneshiek Schools
