The Irene-Wakonda School District will now be sending a weekly active student/staff positive COVID update instead of the separate emails when we are notified of a positive COVID case. Click here for the weekly COVID update.
Also, at the November School Board meeting, the Irene-Wakonda School Board approved another modification to the “Start To School” plan with a change to the 14-day quarantine recommendation for students that are deemed a HOUSEHOLD close contact to a positive COVID case. The new quarantine recommendation for a student deemed a HOUSEHOLD close contact to a positive COVID case will be a 7-day quarantine as long as the student is asymptomatic after the 7-days and follows all District protocols. The updated recommendation is attached.
Just a reminder and also asking your help, the Irene-Wakonda School District is in Level 2 which requires masks to be worn by everyone when entering any District building. This also applies to all home athletic/fine art events. Thank you for helping keep our student-athletes safe and allowing them the opportunity for a successful season.
Have a great day,
David Hutchison, Superintendent
Irene-Wakonda School District
The Irene-Wakonda School District has finally met the criteria to be accepted into a program by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that allows ALL students in the District to receive meals at no cost to them. Both breakfast and lunch will be provided free with no income guidelines. This program is retroactively in effect from October 1st, 2020 and carries through December 31, 2020 or until the funding runs out.
Any meal purchased since the beginning of October will be credited back and funds placed in the student account for future use. Only breakfast and lunch meals are free. Any second milk, a second meal, or a la carte items will NOT be free. Students must have funds in accounts to purchase these items.
The USDA Summer Seamless Program was initiated and now extended, as a result of the CARES Act, which supports families during the COVID-19 pandemic. All students in pre-school to 12th grade will receive free meals.
