RE: COVID-19 Update at MG 

Dear Madison-Grant Families,

This week we had seven total cases reported to our school offices. There were six student cases at the Jr/Sr High School, one student case at Park Elementary. Both counties continue to operate at a Level Orange, which allows us to continue to encourage the use of masks without requiring them in our buildings. Keep in mind that the CDC and the TSA require masks while on our buses through January 18, 2022. We will continue to encourage and recommend the use of masks, but we are NOT requiring them at this time. Please know that we will continue to collaborate with our local health departments and will notify you of any changes.

Indiana State Department of Health Updates Impacting Schools and School Families

The Governor’s office has extended the public health emergency through October 31, 2021. In his latest Executive Order (21-27), authority continues to reside with the State Department of Health in setting requirements for quarantines and contact tracing, which means we MUST follow those guidelines. HOWEVER, the Governor also directed the Commissioner of the Health Department to “evaluate, and modify where warranted, the quarantine provisions” for close contacts in the K-12 setting. As always, if quarantines are reduced, we will implement them immediately and attempt to make them retroactive. 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 and staff who can prove they are fully vaccinated will not need to quarantine as long as they remain asymptomatic.

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.

I look forward to seeing your children on Tuesday!

The State Department of Health issued a change to quarantines, stating if a school corporation mandates masks, then only the students who are positive for COVID-19 would need to quarantine, all others could remain in school.

Dear Madison-Grant Families,

A week from now your students will have completed their first day of school...how exciting! This week we received a great deal of guidance and recommendations from the CDC and the Indiana Department of Health. The guidance focused on reporting of new cases and reinforcing the quarantine measures. Additionally, they are encouraging the use of masks for everyone, which is right inline with our ReEntry Plan. We will continue to encourage and recommend the use of masks, but we are NOT requiring them at this time. Please know that we will continue to collaborate with our local health departments and will notify you of any changes.

COVID-19 Update at MG

Dear Madison-Grant Families,

Our M-G team is working hard to make sure everything is in place for an awesome start to the school year, which is Friday, August 6. We can’t wait! This week the state department of health confirmed that a quarantine would be necessary for any unvaccinated person who is a close contact. The time frame for quarantine will range, just like last spring, from 8 to 14 days. This is already posted on our webpage. 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 will be required by the health department to quarantine. 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 material 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.

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.

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!
