Due to increased COVID-19 cases in the area, Sault Area Schools Superintendent Dr. Tim Hall has made the decision to close all district schools for the remainder of November. Following is a letter Dr Hall distributed to parents:
“Given the steady increase in positive cases of COVID in the region and our district, we have made the very difficult decision to CLOSE THE DISTRICT effective at the end of day today (Thursday November 5th). Students will return to face to face instruction on Monday November 30th.
During the closure, students will attend school remotely and will be expected to participate and complete their assignments. Parents, please look for communications from your child’s teacher(s) and/or building administrators.
Food service will be provided during the closure, but it is important that families seeking this option complete the survey at https://forms.gle/851jN6BnHdueKZRH8.
We understand this decision will be inconvenient for some and apologize in advance. It is important to remember that we want the kids in school and ask that everyone remain vigilant in terms of masking, hygiene practices, and avoiding large gatherings with people outside your household.
Again, please look for additional communications from your child’s teacher(s) and/or building administrators.
Dr. Tim Hall
Superintendent of Schools
