"Dear Clay City Jr./Sr. High School Parents:

We were informed on today, Friday, November 6, 2020, that two additional

Indiana State Department of Health

students tested positive for COVID-19. Our school corporation will follow the guidance of Clay County health officials. Although confidentiality is required, parents of students identified as close contacts, at school or on the bus, with the person who tested positive will be contacted. Close contact is defined as contact within six feet for 15 minutes or more. Individuals who test positive or are close contacts will be provided guidance from local health officials.

Because of positive Covid cases and contact tracing, we will move to the

eLearning Platform on Monday, November 9, 2020, for two weeks. In-person

Learning currently scheduled to resume on Monday, November 23rd. All E.C.A.

events, Athletic practices, and Athletic contests are postponed. E.C.A. and

Athletic practices currently scheduled to resume on Monday, November 23rd.

Breakfast and Lunch will be available to Clay City Jr./Sr. High School students from 10:00 a.m.-Noon each day, Monday through Friday, for the next two weeks by the drive-thru/pickup method in front of the Main Entrance to school on Lankford St.

To reduce the spread of COVID-19, it is important for parents to remind their children the importance of wearing face coverings, washing their hands, and social distancing, when possible. It is also vital for parents to conduct selfscreening of their children each morning and to keep children home if they display any symptoms. Please contact the Clay County Health Department or our Office if you have any questions.
