COVID-19 Disinfectant Plan and Process
Weekly Learning Mode Update-Week Starting November 30th
The primary metrics show that we remain the RED category for this upcoming week as our West Salem community numbers did steady this past week. We will remain in our virtual learning platform for all students 4K – 12 through the week of November 30th. This also means that any co-curricular activities will be virtual with competitions postponed through December 4th as long as we remain in the RED category.
The secondary metrics indicate the COVID-19 conditions in La Crosse County are also continuing to increase. We will continue to monitor our environment and will provide an update of our plans for the week of December 7th on Wednesday, December 2nd. Updates on both the municipality and county data can be found on our COVID-19 Dashboard. We will monitor the trend of the data and make an informed decision to try to get our students back on campus as soon as possible.
On Wednesday, November 25, the La Crosse County Health Department reported the following COVID-19 metrics and numbers that are used to aid the School District in determining the mode of learning:
