ROCK SPRINGS — The following is a message sent to Sweetwater County School District No. 1 parents, through ParentSquare.
“Hello Sweetwater Number One Families,
I hope this Friday evening finds you and your family safe as we complete a full week of learning.
As you may know, this afternoon, Governor Mark Gordon and State Health Officer Dr. Alexia Harrist extended the three existing statewide health orders through April 30 to slow community transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19) and protect lives. This includes a mandatory closure of public schools. As a result, Sweetwater County School District schools are to be closed through at least April 30.
However, the District will continue to provide eLearning services using technology resources.
Together, we will continue our online learning plan into the weeks to come and take small steps forward each day to build upon each opportunity. Our plan continues to help our students progress with their learning, while maintaining the safety guidelines that have been provided by publishing health authorities.
We want your family to be supported and healthy during this time. Please contact your child’s teacher, principal, or myself if there is something we can do to help with your student’s well-being. We know their physical, emotional, and intellectual needs are instrumental to their success and the many professionals involved in your child’s life care about their health and security.
We know these measures are needed to prevent or slow the spread of the virus. Please continue to help as we collectively do our part by prohibiting gatherings of 10 people or more in a single room or confined space (including outdoors). Do not come to your school’s playgrounds to play as we have no way of keeping this clear from contamination during this time.
Sweetwater County School District No. 1 supports all recommendations and orders coming from our local authorities and from the state. We expect all of our students and staff to do the same, along with our wonderful community.
We are not in a normal time with new routines forming each day. Let’s keep coordinating our efforts for the safety and learning of our kids and one another.”
