K-W Community, 

District administration has had some inquiries about active covid cases at the student and staff level.  I want to give you an update from a district level observation.  Administration continues to closely monitor active cases and where we are at as a percentile of people being out.  Currently we have three staff members and nineteen students that are positive and out on quarantine.  This constitutes roughly 2.9% of our total district population of students and staff. 

There is no statute or law that dictates a school closing or altering of the safe learning plan when a district hits a certain positive percentile.  Some districts in Minnesota have used 5% as a baseline to make changes.  At this time, I do not see any change in our learning models or safe learning plan due to active cases or individual building metric covid numbers. 

One of our best mitigation efforts we are utilizing is the use of the Binax rapid test readily available for students and staff who are exhibiting the symptoms to warrant the use of the test.  We feel that anyone who is experiencing symptoms should stay home and consider testing in this convenient manor.  We must continue to be vigilant and aware of following the recommendations as outlined in our safe learning plan which was based off the MDH and MDE recommended guidelines. 

Yours in education,

Bryan Boysen

Superintendent and Elementary Principal
