In an attempt to minimize exposure to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and out of an abundance of caution, Valentine Community Schools are suspending all scheduled assemblies, events, and programs. The suspension will be reevaluated over the coming days or as circumstances warrant.
Currently, there are no immediate plans for short-term or extended school closures. The timing of any closure will be done in consultation with public health officials. We will continue to follow infection control plans. We will continue to monitor student and staff absences and illnesses in conjunction with public health agencies. This district is taking guidance from the Nebraska Department of Education regarding education plans for students in the event of a school closure.
For clarification, at this time practices for school activities and athletics will continue as planned, but contests with other schools are suspended. Additional updates and details will be made on District social media and websites.
Valentine Community Schools will continue to share updated information and plans. Please trust that we are fully engaged in Planning, monitoring, and responding to the COVID-19 situation in consultation with public health officials.
