Parents! Nothing for attendance has changed. If your child is sick, on vacation, or a medical appointment I still need to know. Teachers are still taking attendance throughout the day. Please email me and let me know if your child will not be participating due to any of these circumstances. If your child is planning to deer hunt on Friday, I need to know. Your child will be marked unexcused if I do not have an email or phone call saying they will be gone. Also, if your child is not able to sign on for a google meet or google classroom due to internet problems, please have them call the school and let me know. Your child will be marked absent for not attending a class.

Due to the current rise in COVID-19 cases Mr. Young has made the decision to start remote learning on Friday, November 13th. We will dismiss tomorrow at 10:00am. Please plan for your child to attend school to gather all learning materials needed for remote learning. We will return to school on November 30th. We will keep everyone informed of any changes that might arise. If you have any questions, please email Betsy.

The Hancock County Health Department received notification that an individual within the Nauvoo-Colusa Elementary/Jr. High School has received a lab-confirmed positive COVID-19 test result. This individual was present on November 2, 2020. The Hancock County Health Department has worked closely with the school district to ensure that all guidelines have been followed. Nauvoo-Colusa CUSD #325 has and will continue to follow the recommended CDC guidelines to clean and disinfect the school. The Hancock County Health Department and Nauvoo-Colusa CUSD #325 are sharing this information to provide education, ease uncertainty and suppress rumors. Rest assured that the school district is working very closely with the Hancock County Health Department to reduce the risk of additional transmission. The school district and the health department have conducted contact tracing and identified those who were in close contact with the individual. These individuals have been provided quarantine guidance. All other students, teachers and faculty that were not identified as close contacts are designated as low-risk exposures and are asked to monitor for symptoms. If symptoms begin, it is recommended that individuals contact their healthcare provider to determine if a COVID-19 test is necessary. Symptoms reported among patients with COVID-19 include mild to severe respiratory illness with fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of sense of taste and or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea. The Hancock County Health Department strongly urges people to take COVID-19 seriously. It is everyone’s responsibility to help reduce the spread of illness. People should cover their cough or sneeze, wash hands with soap and warm water and stay home if they are ill. In addition, face coverings should be worn in public when a distance of at least six feet from other persons cannot be maintained. If additional positive cases are confirmed within the school district, parents and guardians will be contacted. If you have any additional questions, please contact the Hancock County Health Department at 217-357-2171 or Nauvoo-Colusa CUSD #325 at 217-453-2231.

Parents! This is a reminder. If your child stays home sick from school, we must have a doctor note for your child to re-enter. The note must say there is an alternative diagnosis instead of COVID-19.
