DSC Families and Staff,
As DSC prepares for a new school year, the COVID-19 Response Plan has been revised to reflect the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In response to CDC & ISDH guidance and local COVID-19 indicators, the DSC will move to Level 2 on 8/9/21 (see attachments). The Level 2 mitigation measures recommend face coverings for unvaccinated students and staff members. However, face covering use will be optional.
Please pay close attention to the email attachment titled “DSC COVID-19 Updated Guidance” for a summary of the updated COVID-19 protocol (below).
Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, the DSC level and/or Response Plan may be revised and updated on a regular basis. DSC administration will continue to provide information through email, phone messages, district and school-wide newsletters and the corporation website that is relevant for students, staff, and families.
Information specific to COVID-19, including the DSC COVID-19 Dashboard, can be found on the COVID-19 INFO tab on the corporation webpage. The dashboard will be updated each school day. Daily dashboard emails will not be sent to families and/or staff members this school year. The dashboard will be included in the DuneNews each week.
Thank you for your continued patience, feedback, and support as the DSC continues to work through the pandemic.
Robert McDermott, Assistant Superintendent
Duneland School Corporation
