After consulting with the Osage County Health Department, we have been given the all-clear to resume summer athletic activities and conditioning, beginning tomorrow, July 16, 2020. As always, we encourage our students and visitors to practice good hygiene and remain home if feeling ill. Thank you for your assistance.
On Saturday, July 11, 2020, school administration was made aware that a group of students were exposed to an individual outside the school district who later tested positive for COVID-19. Those potentially exposed students then attended summer conditioning on Thursday and Friday. Out of an abundance of caution, all summer conditioning/workouts have been postponed until Thursday, July 16, 2020. By that time, county health departments will have had the opportunity to perform contact tracing, fully inform the individuals involved and more conclusive information will be available to make potential further decisions. We appreciate your understanding and will continue to keep you updated as much as possible.
The Board of Education has posted the July meeting agenda. The meeting will be held at the Melvern commons and open to the public.
