School Closure: COVID-19

March 13, 2020

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 childcare accordingly.

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

Superintendent

Fort Calhoun Community Schools
