Good Afternoon SPS School Community,
Based on our 'Back to School Plan for SPS' dated August 18th, please find our weekly report regarding mask-wearing in our buildings for this coming week September 27, 2021. Please see the information below and contact the central office if you have any questions.

Odyssey Middle/High School
*High School and Middle School are considered one shared building. Percentage of population positive equals .8% when combined.
As a reminder masks on buses continue to be a federal mandate.
One phenomena happening in districts across the state at this time is mandated extended closures of schools due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Schools are transitioning to "distance" learning.
What does DISTANCE mean? As a district, we continue to hope for the best though we must plan for the worst. The education of our Bluejay students is essential. Please know that IF the COVID-19 cases warrant a classroom, building, or district "shut down," we will transition from face-to-face to distance learning. Students will still be "required to attend" Zoom/Google meet sessions and complete assigned work. Should this occur, I encourage you to think about a back up plan."
Thank you and have a great weekend.
