Sumner-Fredericksburg Statement on School Closure Due to Covid-19
Due to tonight’s recommendations by the Governor’s Office and the Iowa Department of Public Health, Sumner-Fredericksburg will be closing school for a period of four weeks. With the late nature of the state’s guidance and desire to send some materials or otherwise make some preparations with students, we will have school for a portion of the day on Monday, March 16. There will be a two-hour dismissal, and the closure will begin at the end of the school day at approximately 1:05. Following the early dismissal on Monday, there will be no school events, practices, or activities until further notice. The school will be closed to organizations using school facilities as well. If a parent chooses to keep their child/children home on Monday, it will be considered an excused absence.
There will be additional information forthcoming later in the week on the closure, including flex/distance learning days that may be utilized for a part of the closure time. We understand the difficult nature of this situation and decision on students, families and communities, and ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate an unprecedented time in modern American history. Take care of yourselves, your families, and each other as best you can. We will get through this together.
Yours in Education,
Superintendent Fred Matlage
