COVID-19 Data Dashboard
To ensure transparency to our families, staff, and community the district has created a COVID-19 data dashboard. The dashboard contains current data on reported student and staff COVID-19 cases and quarantine/isolation data. The data dashboard will be updated each Monday at 9:00AM.

We will continue to provide factual information and updates including the latest news as it relates to COVID-19.
