Please know, these plans are subject to change as the situation evolves.

All school settings include hallways, classrooms, indoor recreation/athletics, and/or school buses. The District will analyze local data, collaborate with health officials, evaluate our situation, and adapt as necessary. As guidance changes and local health metrics evolve, the District will remain focused on transitioning to a pre-pandemic learning environment. Unit 5 will share COVID-related data on its dashboard. This information will be updated weekly on Fridays when school is in session.
