Dear Southgate Families,
At its February 9 Board of Education meeting, the Board of Education approved an in-person option for high school students. This decision considered the weighted daily COVID-19 new case averages as tracked on our SCSD Daily New Case Average spreadsheet. Because the tracked weighted daily new case average reached 5 or fewer, high school options are free to resume. To understand how daily new case averages are interpreted in terms of relative risk, please access the the research on Key Metrics for COVID Suppression collected from the COVID Act Now Website.
Anderson freshman will start on Friday, February 19. All other Anderson and Asher students will begin their in-person option on Monday, February 22. Due to vaccination schedules, Beacon students will begin their in-person option on Tuesday, March 2.
Stay Titan Strong,
Learning for Life.
