ESSER III Grant Compliance Information
Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan (ARP Act)
As we prepare to fully open in-person for the 2021-2022 school year, we will continue to follow our COVID-19 Mitigation Plan. We will review our mitigation plan with recommendations from the CDC and the county health department and review our plan every 6 months with our Board. Our next review will take place in December 2021.
Our Mitigation Plan maintains the health and safety of students, educators, and other staff and visitors at our school. This plan helps ensure that our services continue and supports students' and staff's needs.
