Staff members at Dwight Common School District #232 have tested positive for Covid-19. Dwight Public Schools will now go to full remote learning starting Tuesday, October 13 through Friday, October 23.
After consulting the Livingston County Health Department about CDC guidelines and COVID protocols, the decision was made that all Dwight Grade School and Dwight Township High School students will remain at home for remote learning for the next two weeks, as they will return to school for in-person instruction on Monday, October 26th.
School officials say their number one priority is the safety of students and staff, and they have contacted individuals who have had contact with COVID positive staff members. Additionally, they are doing everything possible to offer full-time, in-person instruction as soon as possible.
A few important details to consider:
Seniors will still report to the high school on Wednesday, October 14 to take the SAT as scheduled. Students will NOT be expected to be online for remote learning on Monday, October 19 and Tuesday, October 20 as those dates are already designated as Teacher Planning Days.
Students are encouraged to utilize those days to make up any missing assignments. After school extra-curricular activities will be held as scheduled. Coaches will communicate with athletes about specific details.
Faculty and staff will have the option to work from school or from home. Building access will only be allowed from 7:45 AM to 4:00 PM. The building will be closed to all students and guardians for the next two weeks.
