Dear Parents and Patrons of the Chillicothe R-II School District:
I wanted to inform you that the district is evaluating the information we receive relating to the COVID-19 Coronavirus. As Superintendent, I appreciate the support of the Livingston County Health Department, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Educations, and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. These organizations have worked to provide the district, and its patrons, information about the virus.
I have asked the high school and middle school administrative team to send students home this evening with their Chromebooks. I am not anticipating a school closure due to COVID-19 virus, but I would prefer that students have the needed technology at home in the event that school is canceled. If a long term absence occurred, the district would have the ability to implement an Alternative Method of Instruction. The district administrative team met today to develop our instruction plans and those will be shared if the need arises. Again, the district is not anticipating an extended school cancellation, but we want to be prepared to meet the educational needs of our students.
If you have any questions, please contact Dan Wiebers Chillicothe R-II Superintendent at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dan Wiebers Chillicothe R-II Superintendent
