Hastings Area Schools Superintendent Dan Remenap posted a letter addressing Hastings Saxon Families on the Hastings Area Schools Facebook page this afternoon...Stating that due to increased Covid-19 cases in and around our county and increased infection levels among staff of Hastings Area School system they will shut down all Hastings Area Schools until Monday, Nov.30th at the earliest and move forward with fully Virtual Instruction at all levels and buildings.
There is not a major spread or outbreak going on anywhere in any of the Hastings Area School buildings. It only takes one positive case or two per building to render it impossible to staff for an extended period of time.
Starting Monday, Nov. 16th Virtual Instruction will begin.. All students will be bringing home a Chromebook today (Nov. 13th). and packets will be available to those who prefer them (at the Elementary and Middle School levels).
Friday, Nov. 27th the School Administration will do a staff assessment of health and wellness The School Administration will then make a determination of how school will proceed for Monday, Nov. 30th and communicate plans to all families via robo call and email. There is a chance plans could differ by building. This communication will come no later than 7:00p.m. Friday, November 27th.
If parents have specific questions, please direct your questions to your child’s teacher or building Administrator.
