From the Desk of Dr. Halley: Return to Learn Updates
Faculty and staff at Putnam County R-I schools have had the opportunity to receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
School leaders in Putnam County, along with officials from the Putnam County Health Department, have been meeting as a group for the past 12 months to ensure our schools responded to the Covid-19 pandemic in a consistent, safe and healthy manner.
Our community is extraordinarily blessed that our schools have been able to be in-seat for the 2020-2021 school year. That accomplishment would never have been possible without the tireless efforts of our school employees. They have come to the front lines of our schools and shown up every day to create a safe place for our students to learn. We are forever grateful for the work our school employees have done.
PCR-I Schools would like to thank the Putnam County Health Department for their work and for advocating for our schools to offer a vaccination opportunity for our community. We appreciate everyone who contributed their time and resources to help make the vaccination event a success.
We are pleased to announce that as of March 12, 2021, we are returning to our pre-pandemic practices at PCR-I. What does that mean for our students, staff, and community? Here are just a few of the highlights:
The lunchrooms no longer have assigned seating.
Students no longer are required to wear masks to visit the nurse’s office or other buildings.
Parents no longer are required to wear a mask to enter the building.
Although we are excited about this change for our school district, keep in mind that other schools may not have updated or altered their plans yet. As we travel to other schools for activities, be sure to check their website for updates and restrictions.
Thank you, parents, students, staff, and community members, for your continued support of Putnam County R-I Schools. We appreciate you!
