At this point in time, there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our school district. All measures being taken are precautionary in nature and to slow the spread of the virus.
Governor Noem has declared a STATE OF EMERGENCY in South Dakota in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Governor Noem's STATE OF EMERGENCY order recommends the closing of ALL SCHOOLS statewide next week. Therefore, Estelline Schools will be closed ALL of next week, March 16-20.
All school district employees will report to school on Monday morning. A mandatory staff meeting will be held in the HS gym at 9:00AM.
Parents and/or students will be allowed in the school on Tuesday morning to take needed materials and computers home for online work throughout the week. Entry to the building will be staggered alphabetically to allow for minimal person to person interaction.

We strongly encourage students, staff, and family members to limit travel and social gatherings this weekend and next week. Social distancing is an important aspect of lessening the spread of COVID-19.
