Well, that happened quickly. Kootenai County is now in the RED category for substantial community transmission of COVID-19. Our hospital is at capacity. Please, HFCS, please pray. I’ve seen COVID-19 torment my parents and I watched helplessly from afar as my grandmother died from its effects. Please stay safe and please, please pray.
We are not currently changing anything at this time at HFCS, other than making sure we’re tightening up our already stringent mitigation protocols. It is more critical than ever that we partner together in ensuring the safety of our students, staff, faculty, and families. If your child(ren) are sick, please keep them home. Please make sure masks are clean and fresh daily. Emphasize to your family the importance of social distancing–even at school–so that we keep our friends, neighbors, and community safe.
I don’t believe that we need to change our instructional plan at this time. If that does change, I will communicate with you ASAP. Again, prayer and vigilance are our best weapons against this pandemic. Together, we can do this!
