Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff:

As you know, we are actively monitoring the guidance we are receiving regarding Coronavirus (COVID 19). At this time, we have made the decision to have a two-hour delay tomorrow, Friday, March 13 th for students only. AMD and OHS students will begin school at 10:04 a.m. and all elementary schools will begin school at 11:05 a.m. This delayed opening will give all staff an opportunity to continue to plan for continuity of instruction and to communicate these plans with our students in the event of a school closing. 

Additionally, our Superintendent’s Conference Day scheduled for Thursday, March 19th will now be moved to Monday, March 16th. All elementary parent/teacher conferences will be canceled on March 19th. Thursday, March 19th will now be a regular day of instruction. We apologize for the short notice on these changes, yet we feel it is important to continue planning in the event that a school closure is needed. We have no confirmed cases of Coronavirus in our district and all of these steps are out of an abundance of caution. 

In addition to these measures, we will also be conducting a deep clean of our buildings starting Friday afternoon and through Monday. Our building custodians will continue to work extremely hard to ensure that our buildings are sanitized appropriately. These additional three days will help them ensure that they are reaching all high touch areas (handrails, water fountains, etc.). In order to support this, all after school activities will need to be suspended on Friday and Monday. Additionally, all events and activities in our schools this weekend will be canceled. I thank you in advance for your understanding of these changes to our schedule.
