We are disappointed to share we are placing our return to full-time in-person education plans on hold for our students in grades 5-12.  This decision is in cooperation with local health officials and based upon the evolving conditions of the pandemic.  As reported, there is an increase of high incidence case counts in the larger community and our surrounding counties.  These factors, among others, and the likely impact they may have on student attendance associated with contact tracing and quarantine protocols have caused this shift in our plans.  

We believe our current Educational Pathways provide the greatest possible academic sustainability and consistency that we can hope for at this time.

Students in grades 5-12 attending Canaan Middle School, Jonathan Alder Junior High and Jonathan Alder High School will remain in the Pathway 1B - Hybrid Plan .

Our K-4 students attending Monroe and Plain City Elementary Schools will continue in Pathway 1A and attend in-person on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.  Wednesdays will remain remote learning days.   

The health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority.  We continue to evaluate and monitor the many components of the Decision Framework and aim for a return to full-time in-person education for all of our students.  

We will continue to provide updates through district and building level websites, emails, and newsletters.   You may also visit our District’s website to review the Madison County Health Case Contact & Quarantine Guidelines,  and our COVID-19 Dashboard.  

Thank you for your support and flexibility as we continue to navigate the ongoing challenges associated with the pandemic. 

All of our plans are subject to change based on evolving conditions, data about the status of the pandemic, and updates, guidance and orders received from public health and government officials.
