|Dear Clinton Community School District Parents, Students, Staff, and Community Members,
Upon discovery of the existence of substantial community spread of COVID-19 in the state, Governor Reynolds is recommending that Iowa schools close for four weeks.
“Based on new information today from the Iowa Department of Public Health, now is the time to move to the next level of response,” Gov. Reynolds stated. “I am now recommending that all Iowa schools close for a period of four weeks to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.”
While I don’t have immediate details, there will be additional information coming from the Legislature and Governor’s Office regarding what this means for the remainder of the school year. As of right now, I can tell you that Clinton schools will be closed for four weeks which will bring our students back on Monday, April 13 at the earliest.
I am asking for patience and understanding in this unprecedented situation. We must treat this as seriously as the Governor and Iowa Department of Public Health are telling us.
Please let me know what questions you would have, and I will do my best to address them. I will continue to provide additional updates to everyone as I have them.
Gary DeLacy, Superintendent
