The number of COVID-19 cases this past week continues to decrease to 13.14  Current projections for next week will show this number will plateau around 13.4 for next week.  We will continue to have some small outbreaks in our buildings that will cause some quarantines to take place. 

As mentioned earlier, our current county number has plateaued for next week.  Current daily numbers show a slight increase in the trend for the next week.  I know that everyone is feeling very positive about seeing the end of this very dismal period we have been through the last year.  However, we are too close to the end to let go at this time.  We have too much at stake as we enter the last couple of months of school.  Please continue to follow all of the safety protocols.  We have done such a great job throughout the year. Get the vaccine if you have the opportunity.  I am a little concerned about the B117 variant of the COVID-19 virus that has been discovered in Carver County just southwest of the metro. Some of the early data suggests that it is up to 50% more contagious than the original virus. We want to make sure this does not have the same impact here as it did in Carver County.

If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me or any of the building principals.
