The Medical Advisory Board met on Tuesday (4/20). No recommendations were made after analysis of current local and regional disease data, and vaccination data. The County is no longer provided its own COVID Dashboard, referring all visitors to the state dashboard. As a result, the District dashboard that provides regional information will be updated with available data in the next week.
The Medical Advisory Board has canceled its meetings for 4/27 and 5/4, and is next scheduled to meet on Wednesday, May 12.
Staffing was stable again this week and the senior leadership team is thankful for the continued effort of our entire staff to sustain our commitment to in-person and virtual learning during this 4th quarter.
The Medical Advisory Board met on Wednesday, April 14. A robust discussion was had regarding any type of relaxation of mitigation measures, specifically mask-wearing, with no conclusions reached. There is general recognition that establishing a phased-approach will be difficult, as it is proving to be for most states and local authorities. For now, the Advisory Board reconfirmed its commitment to requiring masks of all students and staff until more research is available and community spread retreats.
Staff case and quarantine data is trending positively, likely a result of vaccination efforts. At the advisement of the Board, the District will distribute factual information and resources regarding vaccination for students 16 and up next week, so that families can make their own informed decision.
Senior Leaders focused on staffing this week, as several staff received the 2nd dose of the vaccine and expected side effects impacted staff members in different ways. Staff attendance overall remains strong, with a 95% attendance rate for our teaching staff this year.
