MIDLAND COVID-19 QUARANTINE POLICY AND MASKS

1) An infected person is out of school for 10 days from the onset of symptoms.

2) A person who has been in close contact with an exposed person is out of school for 14 days from the last day of exposure.

The Midland School District continues to follow the CDC and Jones County guidance of a 14-day quarantine when a student is considered a close contact. Although there have been other options brought forward to shorten quarantines, the CDC continues to recommend a 14-day quarantine guidance to be "best practice" as the incubation period may last beyond 10 days.

If students were to return to school prior to the 14 days, the CDC and IDPH require that students must stay masked up, must be able to social distance, must continue sanitation practices, and must monitor their health daily. Due to these restrictions, students would not be able to eat with other students, attend certain classes where social distancing is not possible, and could not participate in extra-curricular activities.

On Thursday, January 28, 2021, the Midland School Board voted to continue with the 14 day quarantine period for students who have had close contact with an infected individual. Midland has been very fortunate to have low exposure rates throughout the year, and we hope to continue this trend by following these "best practices."

At this time, The Midland Community School District will continue the mask requirement for everyone on school grounds, buses and at events. We will continue to social distance, wash hands and implement extra cleaning measures for the health and safety of all. Thank you for helping us keep students in school.

BUSINESS STUDENTS FINISH 2ND AND 3RD IN STATE, BARCHMAN MOVES ON TO NATIONAL COMPETITION

Midland's Computer Business Application course utilizes Microsoft Office Academy Industry Training and Exams. When students get certified (pass an exam), they are automatically entered into the MOS Championship entries for Iowa. Students could then be chosen to represent their state at the national level if they score one of the highest in the state in an exam (Ppt, Excel or Word). This year Midland Drake Barchman was invited to compete nationally placing 2nd in PowerPoint in Iowa. DJ Soper placed 3rd right behind Drake. This is a great honor as Iowa has many students taking these exams each semester. Drake and DJ have received official certificates in other programs as well and certification badges. These badges are meant to be used on their future resume. They are definitely badges of honor. Congratulations!

IMPORTANT: COVID-19 QUARANTINE GUIDANCE - Jan 21, 2021

The Midland School District continues to follow the CDC and Jones County guidance of a 14-day quarantine when a student is considered a close contact. Although there have been other options brought forward to shorten quarantines, the CDC continues to recommend a 14-day quarantine guidance to be "best practice" as the incubation period may last beyond 10 days.

The CDC website lists 4 different quarantine options which our school district did consider along with our local circumstances and resources and the best option for our school district is to continue using the 14 day quarantine option. Midland has been very fortunate to continue to have low exposure rates throughout the year, and we hope to continue this trend by following these "best practices."

Trump Administration and USDA Extend Free Meals for Kids for Entire School Year

Flexibilities now available through June 30, 2021

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced today that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is extending flexibilities to allow free meals to continue to be available to all children throughout the entire 2020-2021 school year. This unprecedented move is part of USDA’s unwavering commitment to ensuring all children across America have access to nutritious food as the nation recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.

"As our nation recovers and reopens, we want to ensure that children continue to receive the nutritious breakfasts and lunches they count on during the school year wherever they are, and however they are learning," said Secretary Perdue. "We are grateful for the heroic efforts by our school food service professionals who are consistently serving healthy meals to kids during these trying times, and we know they need maximum flexibility right now. I appreciate President Trump for his unwavering commitment to ensuring kids receive the food they need during this pandemic and for supporting USDA in continuing to provide these unprecedented flexibilities."

SCHOOL BOARD ADOPTS NEW POLICY ON MASKS, EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 12, 2020

October 8, 2020

Dear Midland Families,

Last week the Iowa Department of Public Health released new guidance in regards to masks and quarantines. Over the last month, schools across Iowa have had to quarantine large groups of students due to close contact tracing when a positive Covid case is found. Under new guidance released last week that protocol has changed.

Students wearing masks (Gaiters and face shields are NOT Covered under this new guidance) and are within the 6 foot/15 minute criteria, would NOT need to quarantine if both parties were wearing a mask. The positive Covid case would still quarantine for 10 days but the other close contact students would not. I am also sending out the latest guidance from the IDPH that outlines the new guidance in a flowchart for possible scenarios.

My goal from the beginning of this school year has always been to create the safest and best educational experience for our students and staff. I have also said that the best educational experience was to have students in a face to face environment as safely as possible. I believe we have done that. I also know that our families need consistency and that going to school every day and all day is best for families. We have students and families that need our support in regards to our nutrition programs and our social and emotional support throughout the day and week.

As a result of this new guidance from the IDPH, the Midland School Board voted to approve a mask requirement when social distancing is not possible. Our statement reads- “When social distancing is not possible, all students and staff will be required to wear a mask while in the school building or while using school transportation. This includes all before and after school activities.” This is for K-12 students. This is not a decision we took lightly but believe it allows us to create an environment where the majority of students will continue to be taught face to face five days a week, continue the consistency for families, support students’ social/emotional learning and provide nutritious meals to all our students.

This is NOT an entire day mandate of mask wearing. Some classes are able to social distance and would not need to wear a mask. There are some that are much larger and will need to wear one during that time.

*Masks Would be needed in small group instruction or where students are gathered together for 15 minutes and within 6 feet of each other. This includes school transportation.

*Students will Not need to wear masks at recess.

* Students will Not need to wear masks during large group or classroom instruction if there is space to maintain the social distancing guidelines within the rooms.

In regards to indoor activities and sporting events in the gym, we will require students and staff to wear a mask if social distancing is not possible. We will continue to highly recommend a mask for our parents and fans that attend.

We want to be able to keep our schools open, have students participate in extracurricular activities and keep everyone healthy. Based on recommendation from health experts, it is important for our entire community to practice these 5 areas:

1. Physically distance ourselves as much as possible.

2. Wear masks when we cannot be physically distant.

3. Wash hands often.

4. Sanitize our school facilities carefully.

5. Staff and students must stay home if they are ill.

We will be starting this change on Monday, October 12, 2020. We would ask that you send a mask or two with your child to school on Monday for those instances where they might be needed. If you are not able to provide one on Monday, the school will provide one for you. Gaiters and face shields are NOT covered as legitimate face coverings and would need to be treated as a 14 day quarantine if a positive case occurred. Thank you for supporting us as we stay fluid with new guidance from the state and make adjustments that help support our students, families and staff. If you have questions please send me an email or a phone call. 563-488-2292 or thawley@midland.k12.ia.us

Sincerely,

Mr. Hawley, Superintendent

The Midland School Board and Administration

PARENT LETTER RE COVID TESTING

Dear Midland Families,

As we work through different Covid-19 situations this year we would like to ask your help in a couple of those areas. Our nurse, Mrs. Gent and associate Mrs. Paulsen do an amazing job of tracking illnesses and symptoms. We would ask that if you have your child tested for Covid, please let the nurse know if there is a negative test result. Negative test results are not provided to us by our county health officials. If you are quarantining, please let us know as well. Thank you for helping us keep everyone safe. Please call your school to report illnesses or test results. 563-488-2292

Todd Hawley, Superintendent

Good Stuff All Midland Families Should Know



RSCHOOL: Activities Director Casey Hack recently unveiled a new online communication tool that all patrons of the district should be able to easily access and use. You can access it on the internet at: rSchool

This is a calendar which will show all school related events (early dismissals, holidays, concerts, school board meetings, etc.), activities (sports, club events, camps, etc), as well as full athletic schedules, sports rosters, building/gym usage, etc. To view a particular sport click on that under View Schedules, then click on VIEW. You can print any of these as well.

Many schools in the Tri Rivers Conference are already using rSchool so you can access their information as well. There is also a map which will show you how to get to the athletic field in use for each event.

We think this will be very beneficial to our community members. We hope you'll bookmark it on your computer and use it often!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

ATTENDANCE: Please call the main school # 563-488-2292. To report absences for grades 6-12 select 9. To report elementary absences select 2. Phone lines are equiped with caller-ID so if questions you will receive a return call. Please leave the student name, grade, reason for absence from school (if ill, what symptoms as the nurse tracks these), and your name.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

IOWA SCHOOL ALERTS - FREE SYSTEM: Sign up to receive SCHOOL ALERTS - text messages or emails when we have early dismissals, late starts, cancellations, etc. This will be your EARLIEST information on schedule changes.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

SENIOR CITIZEN PASSES - for Midland fans who are 62 or older, live in or pay property taxes in the Midland District. Apply at the high school office by leaving your name, age, mailing address. These passes are good at all Midland athletic events held at home and may be honored by other Conference schools, you'd have to ask at their gate.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

MIDLAND HALL OF FAME NOMINATIONS SOUGHT: Each year we need your nominations for the Midland Hall of Fame. A committee will get together generally in February to determine the winners for the year.

To nominate someone complete the NOMINATION FORM and return to Midland High School ASAP.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

HEALTH REMINDERS FOR STUDENTS ENTERING GRADES K, 7, 9 AND 12: Nurse Gent wants to remind all parents of students who will be entering grades Kindergarten, 7, 9 and 12 of these health requirements. If the student does not meet the requirements they will not be allowed to start school in the fall. The covid 19 situation will NOT prevent this rule from being inforced, so call your health provider and get these scheduled if needed in the near future. Don't wait until late August to do so.

Thanks for your help keeping our kids well!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

BUS SAFETY A MUST: Our transportation personnel want to extend a huge thank you to all who follow proper traffic safety procedures when you encounter one of our buses out on the roads. Our hearts go out to those who have been involved in tragedies involving stopped busses and bus stops recently. It reminds us to post these reminders to all.

Our drivers do turn in a small number of drivers who pass inappropriately, don't stop for red lights, etc. each year. Sheriff Graver says "That information goes to a pre-designated Trooper with the State Patrol who does the follow up and charges if there is probable cause to determine who was driving." We don't want anyone to be in trouble, but better that than risk the lives of our students.

Our students lives are FAR more important than a call or text or something, put down the phone, slow it down and follow the laws. Let's all get safely to our destinations.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

MIDLAND FANS ASKED TO FOLLOW SPECTATOR EXPECTATIONS: Because we are proud of our school and our student athletes, we ask our fans to all read and follow these spectator expectations at all events both home and away.

Spectator Expectations Letter From Administrators

We have worked hard over the years to have a great sportsmanship rating and want to keep that up where it should be. Let's all set a great example for not only our students, but all students attending our events.

Thanks for supporting all Eagle athletics!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
