Letter from Superintendent July 16, 2021

COVID-19 Update at MG

Dear Madison-Grant Families,

Greetings Madison-Grant families as I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!  On Monday, July 12, the School Board approved our ReEntry Plan.  Please know that our ReEntry Plan is a living document set up to adjust as the CDC (federal), State Health, and local health departments (Grant and Madison) adjust their requirements and recommendations.  Here are the current highlights of the plan for this week:

  • All students will attend in-person every school day and schools will be at full capacity.
  • Masks are NOT required on school property, but the CDC and the Indiana State Department of Health recommend masks for those who are not vaccinated.
  • Buses - The CDC (federal) requires ALL passengers and drivers to wear a mask while on the bus as school buses are considered public transportation.
  • Social distancing will be practiced when possible.
  • If you are identified as close contact, you will be notified.  Non-vaccinated students and staff may be required by the health department to quarantine.  Updates to quarantine guidelines are expected in the coming weeks. 
  • Field trips will return as venues reopen to school groups.
  • For the 2021-2022 school year, the federal government will continue to provide school meals for all students K-12.  
  • We will continue to use enhanced cleaning protocols and provide extra staff, hand washing materials and cleaning supplies.

Indiana State Department of Health Updates Impacting Schools and School Families

The Governor’s office has lifted the mask mandate and the emergency order.  Additionally, the State Department of Health has authorized children ages 12 and older to receive a vaccine.  Please see the Teen Vaccination link on our COVID-19 webpage.  Please keep in mind that students who can prove they are fully vaccinated will not need to quarantine as long as they remain asymptomatic.   To register for a COVID-19 vaccination, please CLICK HERE

General information can still be found on our COVID-19 page of our website.   

Real time updates can be found on the ISDH’s website at https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/2400.htm.

INDIANA’S VACCINATION WEBSITE: https://vaccine.coronavirus.in.gov/  also https://vaccinefinder.org/

How are we (the schools) notified of a positive case?

There are three ways, typically, that schools have been notified.  First, and the fastest, is the family will contact their school’s office or the Superintendent’s office by phone or email (information below).  Second, either the Grant or Madison County Health Departments will contact the Superintendent via his cell phone or email as soon as they learn this information.  They receive their information twice daily from the Indiana State Department of Health’s report.  Finally, we could receive contact directly from the State of Indiana’s Contact Tracing Team.

Have a wonderful weekend!
