  • IMMEDIATE COVID UPDATE

    Good Evening Parents and Students,

    Out of an abundance of caution and to help better address our remote learning challenges, we will be shifting to remote learning starting next Tuesday. The Elk County Health Department will be reaching out to any student or staff member that may have had direct contact with the parties as per public health guidelines. As of right now, the district is unaware of any possible close exposure that would have occurred last week or today during normal school activities. The events in question occurred over the weekend.

    School for the remainder of this week Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will be canceled for all students. All staff will report for teacher in service.

    We will be using this time to prepare and finish the installation of our remote learning hardware that has been back-ordered due to supply issues.

    Further information regarding device check out and remote instructions will be forthcoming. If you have any questions please contact Megan Gaston, 620-642-7023, or Jason Crawford, 785-231-8983.

    Sincerely,

    Jason Crawford, Superintendent
    and      
    Megan Gaston, Administrator

  • Important Covid Update

    Dear Elk Valley Family,

     

    Earlier this evening administration was made aware that a family member of a USD 283 employee tested positive for COVID-19. We are closely working with the Elk County Health Department and want to remind parents of the safety protocol. At this time the employee has not shown any symptoms and currently does not have a positive test. As always, we want parents to make their own decisions about their child’s health. 

     

    We want to ensure parents know we will take the steps necessary to protect the health of our students and staff. The family is now in quarantine. 

     

    The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to the regular seasonal influenza and include fever, coughing, and shortness of breath. Some have reported additional symptoms, such as a runny nose, sore throat, nausea, lethargy, lack of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea. Individuals who need medical care should call their medical provider to report their illness prior to seeking care at a clinic, physician’s office, or hospital. Parents of students exhibiting flu-like symptoms or staff exhibiting flu-like symptoms are asked to contact a school official, local health authorities, or the Elk County Department of Health.

     

    We are closely monitoring this situation and will provide you with updates as we know more and at this time we will have school tomorrow, Tuesday, September 15th. Please continue to check our website, Facebook, and have your contact information updated in PowerSchool. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the district office at (620) 642-2215.

     

    Sincerely,

     

     

    Jason Crawford
