 Dear Families and Staff:

This letter is to inform you that an individual at Ashley Grade School has tested positive for COVID-19. We are coordinating our efforts with the Washington County Health Department and other local health departments to promptly identify and monitor individuals who have had recent contact with the COVID-19 positive individual to prevent further spread within our school and community. The health and safety of Ashley Grade School students and staff is our highest priority, and we recognize the uncertainty and concern regarding the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We are following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the state and local health departments for best practices and procedures to protect everyone’s health.

To prevent further spread of the disease, Ashley Grade School is taking the following steps:


  • Placing staff members and students who are identified as having prolonged close contact to the COVID-19 case in quarantine for 14 days. Close contacts will also receive a separate notification from the local health department(s). 
  • Ongoing monitoring of students and staff for signs and symptoms of illness and evaluation of illness reports to promptly identify possible outbreaks.
  •       Conducting a deep clean and disinfection of the areas impacted by potential exposure to the COVID-19 virus.

We will continue to enforce safe practices to prevent, promptly identify, and respond to potential COVID cases, as follows:

  • Students and staff who are ill with COVID-like symptoms will promptly be placed in a separate supervised area away from others until they can be sent home.
  • Students are required to wear face coverings at all times, as previously directed and per school policy.
  • Staff members are required to wear face coverings at all times while in contact with children and other staff in the facility.
  • All students, staff, visitors, etc. undergo temperature checks upon enterinthe school building(s).

  • We are reinforcing to students the importance of face coverings, social distancing, and proper hand washing/sanitizing.
  • As we receive more information from the Department of Public Health and other entities, we will implement additional recommendations and guidelines.

As always, everyone should monitor their health and stay at home if they develop symptoms. Sick persons should contact their health care provider to determine if testing is needed. Anyone who develops severe symptoms should immediately seek medical care. If your child has had close contact with a known case of COVID-19, keep the child at home and notify your primary healthcare provider, your local health department, and Ashley Grade School.

ASHLEY GRADE SCHOOL

REOPENING PLAN

2020-2021


Please welcome the newest member of the Ashley Grade School staff.... 

Ms. Brittany Ward has accepted the position of
Special Education Resource (Grades K-4)
and 3rd Grade has a new teacher,
Mrs. Amanda Cary.

Welcome Aboard!


2020-2021 School Year Reopening Plan 

The Board of Education met Monday, July 27, 2020 and a decision was made collectively with administration and staff regarding student learning for the 2020‑2021 school year. The first day of student attendance will now be 

Wednesday, August 12, 2020.

We have adopted a blended learning model. The school day will consist of onsite learning from 8:20 am until 1:45 pm Monday through Thursday and for those who have chosen the remote learning option, learning will take place on those days from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm. On Fridays, there will be no student attendance. However, on this day, all students will engage in remote learning.

All students will be screened for COVID19 symptoms and undergo temperature checks. Masks are required to be worn while at school and on the buses.

Registration is in progress. You may register online through www.teacherease.com with your email or if you prefer, you may pick up paperwork at the school office. As soon as possible, please let the school know if you will be choosing ONSITE instruction or REMOTE learning.

If a parent/guardian chooses to have their child receive remote learning, that child remains in remote learning for the entire quarter.

Our 2020-2021 school reopening plan will soon be made available on our school website or in hard copy form.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school office at 485-6611.

Thank you!!
