Dear Havana High School Parents and Students There have been 6 positive COVID cases reported to us over the past 9 days. These 6 positive student cases have forced 73 students and 2 staff members to be quarantined due to having close contact. This is 1/3 of all in-person learning students. We have decided to move Havana HS to a “Temporary” Remote Learning Situation starting Tomorrow Sept. 29th until Monday, Oct. 12th. This decision is not being made out of fear as the health department agrees there is no evidence that the virus has been spread to anyone while at school to date. During this 2-week period all HS students should stay at home and practice all the safety protocols of using hand sanitizer, wearing masks, social distancing, and refrain from touching their face while outside of their home. If these measures are not followed, then this 2-week period could actually provide more opportunity for the virus to be spread and in effect have the opposite desired outcome. Teachers will still come to work and deliver instruction to students daily. Students will need to use their school provided device to communicate with their teachers, watch instructional videos, continue to complete assignments and participate like they were still in person. If you live in a location that does not afford you a quality internet connection, we ask that you consider finding a better connection or location so you can continue your studies. There are free wifi and hotspots in many communities, restaurants, libraries, and in the school parking lots. The district has ordered some Verizon and AT&T hotspots to assist those that live in remote areas, but we are still waiting on those to be delivered. This is a temporary situation, so we won’t be able to assist homes with an internet installation in this situation. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause and we appreciate your support during this very challenging and difficult time. We aren’t the ones making the rules and none of us asked to be put in these situations. We are simply trying our best to follow the rules for the safety and wellbeing of everyone until things can return to normal. New Central Elementary and Havana Junior High will continue with in person learning. Respectfully, Superintendent Plater and Principal McKinney
