The Jamestown C-1 School District is set to remain in virtual instruction through this Friday, at the recommendation of the Moniteau County Health Center.
The closure may be extended, based upon continued increases in positive COVID-19 test results and quarantine orders. In light of the current situation in the district, both the Veterans Day assembly set for today and the junior class BBQ have been postponed. Details of alternate plans will be provided at a later date.
The school first halted in-person instruction Monday, Nov. 2, initially vying for a brief closure due to a substitute teacher shortage.
As of last Thursday, when the district made the decision to extend virtual learning, the district had two employees who had tested positive for the coronavirus and another six in quarantine. Contact tracing had not been completed for all students who may have been in contact with those who tested positive, but many families had already been informed of quarantine orders for their students due to contact tracing last week.
Through the rest of the period of virtual learning, secondary students in sixth through twelfth grade will participate in scheduled Google Meetings on odd-numbered days. Elementary students' scheduled Google Meetings will continue on even-numbered days.
Meal delivery will continue throughout the closure. If district parents would like to add their students to the meal delivery route, they can email principal Jake Watson at [email protected]
