Due to the clean-up and repair of a burst pipe at William Foster, the school will be in remote learning for the rest of the week (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday). The district is confident necessary repairs and cleanup will be accomplished by the end of this week. Please stay tuned to the district's web and social media pages for further updates.

Covid Reporting Form

Covid-19 Student Reporting Form

In order to help our families when a student has tested positive, the district has created a self-reporting google doc. Please complete the information and it will be sent to Mr. Patton Assistant Superintendent,  who will then send it to the Department of Health. Families can still call their student's respective schools to report. Thank you for your help and stay safe.
