March 31, 2020 Update: 

****At her press conference today, Governor Reynolds issued no new guidance on school closure.  I know that is at the front of everyone’s minds right now.  As always, we will follow the guidance of the Governor and IDPH.

****Thank to everyone who turned out to watch the Wapello Wave Parade as it went through Morning Sun.  I have seen that WMU is planning a Wave Parade for Thursday, so please turn out for that one, as well.  It’s a fun way to brighten everyone’s spirits when we can’t all be together.

****And just in case you forgot, although I don’t know how you could:  

Wash your hands.
Cover your cough.
Wash your hands.
Stay home if you are sick.
Wash your hands.
Practice social distancing.
Wash your hands.

This parade is going through Morning Sun tomorrow (Tuesday) if you’d like to go out to wave!!! Find a spot on the map.The staff at Wapello Community Schools have organized a "Wave Parade" for students on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at beginning at 1:30 p.m. We have put together our route and approximate times that the staff will visit neighborhoods in Wapello, Morning Sun, and Oakville. We hope all of our students can find their way to the route to wave at the staff! The staff is really missing all of the students and would love to give everyone a wave and a horn honk to let them know we are missing them. Check out our website for all of the details! https://www.wapello.k12.ia.us/wapello-csd-wave-parade-route #WeAreWapello #WapelloTribePride ... See MoreSee Less

March 30, 2020 update: I just finished watching Governor Reynolds’ press conference, and she has issued no new guidance on school closure. She did say she is anticipating more formal guidance from Washington, D.C. in the days to come.

Many thanks to Tyson Foods for their donation of frozen chicken products. This will be a huge help to our meal distribution program.

Wapello will be having a school parade starting at 1:30 tomorrow afternoon. The parade starts in Wapello. See the following link for specific times and routes in order to see when the parade will arrive in Morning Sun. www.wapello.k12.ia.us/wapello-csd-wave-parade-route. And remember to practice SOCIAL DISTANCING.

It wouldn’t be an update if we didn’t include the Governor’s recommendations:

Wash your hands.
Cover your cough.
Wash your hands.
Stay home if you are sick.
Wash your hands.
Practice social distancing.
Wash your hands.

Stay strong everyone.

Lunch/Breakfast pick up starts at 9-10 today. You will get lunches/breakfast for Monday and Tueday today ... See MoreSee Less

And week two of school closure comes to an end...

1. Tyson Foods is donating 40,000 pounds of food to county schools to help during this time. This will be put toward our school lunch distribution. Many thanks to Tyson!

2. A reminder that Governor Reynolds has not given any indication that school will be closed for a longer period of time than what she has originally set. If you are hearing differently, it is only a rumor.

3. A clarification from yesterday. April 13 is the first day schools can reopen. April 13th is currently a vacation day (Easter Monday). The Morning Sun board has said that Easter Monday would be used as a makeup day if necessary. However, I will need to confirm that with them, given the extreme circumstances.

4. Continued thanks to those staff members who are working to distribute food, The need for this continues to grow.

5. On top of everything else, there is bad weather moving into the area this week. Stay alert and stay safe.

As always...
Wash your hands.
Cover your cough.
Wash your hands.
Stay home if you are sick.
Wash your hands.
Practice social distancing.
Wash your hands.

Let me know if you have any questions. If I don't know the answer, I will find out and send out the information in a future update.

Stay strong, everyone.

Will kindergarten kiddos have no school this day?

March 26, 2020 update:

Governor Reynolds put some more restrictions in place for businesses today, but no change in the guidance given to schools. There are all sorts of rumors floating around right now. Currently, we are all planning on coming back to school on April 13.

As always, we will follow the guidance given to us by Governor Reynolds and the Iowa Department of Public Health. And the best way to keep us coming back to school on the 13th is to follow the guidance we have all been given:

Wash your hands.
Cover your cough.
Wash your hands.
Stay home if you are sick.
Wash your hands.
Practice social distancing.
Wash your hands.

Parents want the kids back in schools. Educators want the kids back in the school. Even the kids want to be back in school, even if they might not admit it out loud!

Stay strong, everyone!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

I was told that 114 people were served meals today. 114 people! That is absolutely mind-blowing. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who is helping to make sure that our young people get fed and our parents have one less thing to worry about during this stressful time.

I keep hoping the sun will actually decide to shine one of these days. Our movement may be restricted, but it would still be nice to look up and see some sunshine once in a while. Here's hoping...

Stay strong, everyone!
