October 2, 2020 Solon Community, The Iowa Department of Public Health issued new guidance related to when to quarantine and what type of face covering offers the greatest protection. The guidance is summarized below: • Quarantines will not be required when a masked individual tests positive and all close contacts were wearing masks. Close contacts will need to self-monitor. • Masks offer the greatest protection from COVID spread. Gaiters and shields do not offer the same level of protection as masks. The administrative team and nurses met this morning to review our current mitigation practices and the new guidance from the IDPH. We concluded that all current mitigation practices will continue to be implemented and our face covering expectation will encourage the use of masks to offer students and staff the greatest level of protection. The IDPH recognizes the use of masks as protection when social distancing is compromised so the use of masks is an important mitigation practice in keeping all students onsite everyday. If your child currently uses a shield or gaiter and you have questions, please contact your child’s school principal. The success of our return to onsite learning for all students everyday has been a model across Iowa. We will continue to assess and review our data and all new guidance from public health and Department of Education in keeping all students and staff safely onsite. District Administration Davis Eidahl, Superintendent Josh Lyons, Director of Teaching and Learning Zach Wigle, High School Principal Mike Herdliska, Middle School Principal Jessica Tabor, Lakeview and Intermediate Principal

September 8, 2020 District indoor facilities will not be available this fall to non-sanctioned school teams and activities. This includes all gym use for youth teams. We are keeping the schools closed to limit student interaction and activity outside the school day and provide our custodians the necessary time to clean and sanitize. Gym usage will be reevaluated in December. We realize the inconvenience for many of our youth teams, but we are implementing every possible measure to keep students in school without disruption caused by exposure to COVID.
Picture day is tomorrow! Smile big on 9.10.2020
