Parents / Guardians:

As you likely know, our community is experiencing an increased number of COVID-19 cases and other illnesses. Student and staff absences for our district continue to increase as well. Unfortunately, we temporarily do not have the number of staff members necessary to provide students with a safe and productive learning environment.

As a result, we have made the difficult decision to transition all district students to distance learning for the remainder of this week. We hope this adjustment will allow time for impacted students and staff to safely recover and complete their isolation periods, while also helping to curb the spread of illnesses in our community.

Our team has worked hard to prepare for this situation. Students in grades 5th-12th will continue their coursework with their devices via google classroom.  Elementary students in pre-K through 4th will receive paper packets from their teachers today.

There is nothing more important to our district than the safety and health of our students, our staff and their families. We understand this transition will be inconvenient; however, we greatly appreciate your families’ flexibility, patience and support. We are optimistic this step will help us avoid additional interruptions through the remainder of the school year.

If you have any questions about this transition, please contact your child’s school principal.

It is an honor and a privilege to serve the students of Valliant Public Schools. We look forward to seeing them on campus again on Monday January 24th.
