The number of COVID-19 cases this past week does show an increase to 55.32 Current projections for next week will show this number will increase again to 55.92. As you can continue to see in the chart below, the numbers within our district still remain low.
Both the information we are getting from Public Health and the numbers show that we are plateauing. The last time these numbers plateaued was back in early December when the county number was at 247.16. The current number we are dealing with is considerably less than last December. As more people continue to get vaccinated there is a mindset that this number will start to go down in the next couple of weeks.
We had put out a survey to our general public to see if there was any interest in receiving the vaccine on our school site. We’ll see if the county is still willing to do this with the low number of responses we received. If your 16-18 child wants the vaccine we would also recommend that you contact your health provider.
We are heading into the home stretch for the school year. With Prom occurring this Saturday (May 1st) we will pass another milestone of the spring season. It is also anticipated the weather will turn around by the end of the week to allow more activity for our spring sports. As the weather gets better there will be more opportunities to get your children outside as much as possible.
