Unfortunately there is an outbreak of COVID-19 in our Summer Journey Program. That means multiple students have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within this past week. To help reduce any further spread of the disease, school buildings and school busses are being thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. Furthermore, beginning Monday, June 14th, all individuals, students and staff alike, who have not been fully vaccinated for COVID -19 will once again be required to wear a mask until the outbreak subsides. We will work closely with our local health department to monitor this outbreak and as always focus on the health and safety of our students and staff.
On this Memorial Day, MCR1 honors the men and women of the US Armed Forces who gave the ultimate sacrifice to our great Nation. We appreciate you! #MCR1Pride
McDonald County R-1 School Board, after a careful review of current COVID related statistics for both student and staff in the district, voted on Thursday evening to ease several of the COVID restrictions which have been in place during the 2020-2021 school year. Effective immediately, the board has voted to change the mask mandate. As of the May 13th vote, mask will be optional instead of mandatory for both students and staff. In addition, parents and volunteers are once again permitted on campuses and in school buildings as they have been in previous years. Also dropped were the screening protocols of both staff and guest. One final change effecting students was opening up the option for student field trip experiences. Board members did stress that lifting these restrictions, in paticular releasing the mask mandate, could potentially result in an increase number of students excluded from school in cases where students were exposed to a COVID positive individual on campus. The school will continue to keep accurate seating chart documentation and work closely with the McDonald County Health Department to monitor the COVID impact on students and staff. If the COVID numbers increase significantly, the school administration in conjunction with the school board could reverse these decisions as needed to protect the health of students and staff.
