A Message from Our Superintendent 

March 15, 2021

COVID-19 Update

We have one new positive case to report this week, which represents our only active case in the district. Our staff will receive their second vaccination this week. Many of our staff, in partnership with our local clinic, have already received both shots. While we don’t have an exact figure of staff that have received both vaccinations, we anticipate that after next week’s round of vaccinations approximately two-thirds of our staff will have been vaccinated.

The district has received several inquiries regarding new health orders from the state, specifically around mask requirements. The governor’s press release states, “Wyoming will remove its statewide mask requirement and allow bars, restaurants, theaters, and gyms to resume normal operations on March 16.” The governor goes on to state, “The face covering protocol will remain in place in K–12 schools as a safety measure to ensure that classroom learning and all student activities can continue to occur safely.” Governor Gordon stated, “Wyoming is one of the few states in the country that kept students learning in the classroom for the entire school year. We made sacrifices, but the earlier orders saved lives. We persevered,” said Governor Gordon. “With this approach we can have graduations, proms, and a great end to the school year by keeping schools open. Especially since our children will not have the chance to be vaccinated this spring.” The district will follow the governor’s requirement and our Smart Start Plan requiring masks be worn unless a physical distance of six feet can be maintained.
