Letter: Updates on Sunday, Jan. 9January 9, 2022
Dear Oswego CSD Parents and/or Guardians,
I am writing to provide a quick update for our learning community and the schedule for tomorrow.
Remote Learning Tomorrow January 10, 2022
As shared late last week, the district will be providing remote instruction for all students tomorrow, January 10, 2022. We are requesting that all parents and/or guardians ensure that their child(ren) participate in tomorrow’s learning throughout the day.
Tentative Return to School Date
At this time, we are scheduled to return to “in-person” learning this upcoming Tuesday, January 11, 2022. Should the district need to extend remote learning, we will inform all parents and/or guardians as soon as possible.
Throughout the weekend the district learned that we have an additional 41 people (students and staff) who have tested positive for COVID-19. Given this information we are requesting that our community continue to follow-through with all mitigating strategies (washing of hands, social distancing, wearing a mask, vaccination, etc.) and stay home whenever feeling sick and/or demonstrating COVID-19 symptoms.
More information about daily COVID-19 cases, testing and vaccination opportunities are posted to the district’s website.
The weather forecast for tomorrow is very concerning, as it projects a great deal of snowfall and hazardous driving conditions. Accordingly, the district will be enacting the following tomorrow to ensure safety of staff and students:
- All CiTi CTE and specialized programs will be canceled tomorrow for all Oswego CSD students. Accordingly, no transportation will be provided to these programs.
- All athletics and extracurricular activities are canceled for tomorrow. This includes all practices. All athletics and extracurricular activities are planned to resume on Tuesday, January 11, 2022.
- There will be no food deliveries or pick-ups tomorrow. Food services will resume on Tuesday morning in schools.
- All school buildings will be closed tomorrow. Given the forecast all buildings will not be open tomorrow as various staff and departments will be working remotely throughout the day.
Please know, the district will be in touch again tomorrow to provide additional updates for parents and students. Should you have any questions or concerns, we encourage you to reach out directly to your child’s principal.
Yours in Education,
Mathis Calvin III, Ed. D.
Superintendent of Schools
