Nov. 12, 2020 - Update on New Guidance from State

Posted by Dr. Elizabeth Keenan on 11/12/2020

This morning, Governor Mike Parson, in conjunction with the Department of Health and Senior Services and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, announced a change in guidance for determining close contacts and resulting quarantines in school settings. The District was just made aware of this new guidance this morning and we will be working with the St. Louis County Department of Health to review our District’s procedures in consideration of this new information. We will communicate any updates to families and staff as soon as they are finalized.

SSD is committed to the health and well-being of our students and staff, and we will continue to follow our current processes and procedures until we have more information. This means any students or staff currently on quarantine should remain on quarantine until they receive additional communication from the District.
