Back to School Plan_9/10/2020 




SurprisedThere is rumor going around that there is an emergency meeting coming up and that the schools will be going to Phase III -Red. THIS IS FALSE INFORMATION. SurprisedTHERE IS ALSO NO EMERGENCY MEETING. There is a special school board meeting Monday, September 21, 2020 that the board and the district are having to discuss the DOH Guidelines and contact tracing among other action items. Again, the schools are not going to Phase III - Red. The district would like to remind you that October 9th will be a student instructional day and not a teacher-inservice day. Homecoming will be October 9th with an early dismissal. Building principals will be updating you on dismissal times soon! If you have any questions or concerns please contact your building principal or Mr. Kirkegaard before assuming it is true through social media or other outlets. Thank you! 


Please check your child, using the screening tool found in the Meade 46-1 Back to School Plan, before sending your child to school each day. Please DO NOT send your child to school if they are not feeling well or have any of the symptoms listed.


Meade County is currently listed by the Department of Health as having substantial community spread of Covid 19. Due to this classification, if your student is sent home from school with one or more of the following symptoms, he/she will be required to stay home from school for 10 days, as mandated by the Department of Health and the Department of Education.


1. Temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher when taken by mouth.
2. Sore throat.
3. New uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing. (For students with chronic allergic/asthmatic cough, a change in their cough from baseline.)
4. Diarrhea, vomiting or abdominal pain.
5. New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever.
The only option for your child to return to school within the ten days is with a negative Covid test or a note from their Dr. with an alternative diagnosis. Parents will be notified when Meade County is no longer in substantial community spread.
