Update September 1 2020.docx


Dear Parents, Staff, and Community Members,

 

            Today we received notification that a student at Grandfield Elementary has tested positive for COVID-19.  The Grandfield Administration team is actively collaborating with the Tillman County Health Department.  Individuals determined to have been in close contact with the positive individual will be contacted by the health department and school officials. These individuals will be asked to quarantine for a period of 14 days.  Please remember that the school must maintain student confidentiality and will only personally contact those directly impacted.

            Currently, Grandfield Schools is initiating its COVID-19 procedures and will move to our initial 72-hour virtual learning option.  This period will be from Wednesday, September 2 through September 4th.  During this time contact tracing will be completed and school facilities will be sanitized. Information and guidance will be collected to determine when it is safe for students to return.  Student meals will be available to students in a grab and go format each day from 10:30- noon at the high school cafeteria. Pick up will be at the bus loading and unloading area on the east side of the high school science building.  Please remember these meals will be charged according to your student’s meal status.  Both breakfast and lunch will be provided.

            Students have practiced and have been prepared to use our on-line learning platforms and will complete assignments on-line during this time.  During this time, attendance will be determined through the completion of daily assignments. Assignments will be entered in the grade book.  Teachers will be available from 8 am through 3:30 pm via email and phone to assist students with work.

Those families requiring electronic devices will pick them up tomorrow at the Elementary building using the following schedule:

9:00-10:00    Kindergarten through 3rd

10:-11:00      4th-8th

11:00-12:00   High School

Please enter the circle drive from the north and remain in your vehicle. A staff member will assist you with your electronic device delivery.

Thank you for your cooperation as we work together to keep our students and staff safe.

 

Sincerely,

 

James Higdon

Superintendent, Grandfield Public Schools
