Note to K-W Parents and Students 9/1/20

K-W Parents and Students,

As we have prepared for the start of the school year, the Minnesota Department of Health 14-day COVID-19 Case Rate for Goodhue County has been monitored on a weekly basis.  The updated 14-day COVID-19 Case Rate for Goodhue County increased to 9.30 on the most recent update that was reported on Thursday, August 27th.  These case rate numbers have increased over each of the past three weeks.  If this number increases to 10 or higher we would be required to shift to Phase 2.  Given the trend in this data over the past three weeks as well as how close the data is to requiring a shift to Phase 2, we are taking a proactive approach and making the decision to begin the year at K-W in Phase 2.  

Please see the attached document with more details about Phase 2 which means grades 7-12 will begin the school year in the Hybrid Learning Model.
