Dear Fleming Countians:
Welcome back from fall break. Although the district has now moved to “red” status due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in our community, we will resume with in-person classes tomorrow, Monday, October 19, 2020, as scheduled. It is important to note that as of now cases are not directly impacting the school district. Please review the visual below which includes additional COVID-19 mitigation strategies that you can help the district to implement. Staff will be implementing extra precautions starting tomorrow. The district has been planning for this scenario since early summer, with student and staff health and safety being our top priority. I am confident in our plan and our people to do what is needed to have in-person classes. Students, teachers, staff members, parents/guardians, and the community have done a phenomenal job this school year. It is because of you that I know we can safely remain open to in-person classes. Fleming Countians always rise to the occasion!
Please ensure that you have a plan in place should a classroom be quarantined, a school is temporarily closed, or we experience a district-wide sporadic shutdown. As I have continued to communicate, please plan for the unexpected. Our goal is to remain open as long as possible, but we must all be prepared for the possible move to NTI at very short notice. I would encourage everyone to follow ALL COVID-19 protocols at home and when you are out in public. We must mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our community (and our schools) and it will take all of us working together to successfully decrease this latest wave of COVID-19 cases.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 606-845-5851 or via email at email@example.com.
Thank you for your continued support, understanding, and patience.
Brian K. Creasman
