A small number of cases impacted the foodservice sector of the Blue School District late last week, leaving administrators with the only decision to temporarily close their doors for two weeks.
Superintendent Dr. Hilary Stanifer told Regional News Monday they did not have a large number of cases but because of infections in staff, it impacted their ability to feed their students and for that reason, they are beginning a two-week and a day shutdown.
Before the discovery of COVID impacting their food service, Dr. Stanifer is highly complimentary of how things have gone to this point. She says there were excitement and positivity at every level.
The district has a school improvement day scheduled for Monday, September 28 so the goal is for students to return on Tuesday, September 29. Upon today's (Monday's) remote learning planning day, Dr. Stanifer estimated the district to be about 85-percent ready for remote learning.
