The number of COVID-19 cases this past week does show an increase to 53.95 Current projections for next week will show this number will increase again to 54.84. As you can continue to see in the chart below, the numbers within our district still remain low.
As reported last week, the Minnesota Department of Health is not focusing on the metrics they set forth in the fall that you see above. With our staff largely vaccinated and our in-district numbers remaining low we do not anticipate changing our learning model. We are also optimistic with the projection for next week showing a very small increase that we have hit a plateau in this latest surge.
I am also hearing in the conferences that I attend that many 16 - 17-year-olds are getting vaccinated. Only the Pfizer vaccine is being used to vaccinate these students. If you are interested you may want to contact your health provider. There has been some discussion on offering vaccinations at the school this summer for this age group.
We continue to ask you that if your child is sick, please keep them home and get tested. If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me or any of the building principals.
