Dear Fort Calhoun Community,
With guidance from local medical and health department experts,
we feel it is in the best interest of our students and staff to close Fort
Calhoun Community Schools from March 13th to March 22nd.
This is effective today (March 13, 2020).
Closure means no school, no practices, no travel, no meetings,
no weight room, no contests, no activities, etc. Anything on the school
calendar is canceled.
At this time, Prom and Post Prom are postponed.
We are closing all school district operations down for the entire
week, to begin and include today, Friday, March 13th. This includes
Little Blossoms before and after school program. Please make plans for
This has been an extremely difficult decision that we didn’t
take lightly. There are literally thousands of issues we factored in and
continue to discuss.
We will continue to discuss our plans moving forward,
immediately focusing on the week of March 23. We will communicate that decision
late next week.
Beyond that, we are operating with a week-to-week mindset. This
situation is literally changing by the hour.
We will continue to do
our best to communicate on a regular basis with updates. Thank you for your
continued support of Fort Calhoun Schools. We will do our best to support our
students, staff, and community through this unprecedented time.
Dr. Don Johnson
Fort Calhoun Community Schools
