March 16, 2020


Dear Parent/Guardian, 

On March 15, 2020, Governor Reynolds and the Iowa Department of Public Health instructed all Iowa schools to close for 4 weeks in order to reduce the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). This closing started on March 16, 2020.

While school is closed, all meetings, activities and practices are suspended until further notice. This includes, but is not limited to the following:   tonight's TADS help night, The Friends of Gehlen Ball, spring play, Then Feed Just One packing event, and Prom.  

We will open the school from 10am-2pm tomorrow, March 17, for any students who need to pick up items from their lockers or classrooms or for any families who need assistance scanning documents for their TADS application.  Please enter and exit the building through Door A (the main front entrance).  All other doors will be locked.  After 2pm on Tuesday, March 17, the Gehlen campus is to be considered closed. Nobody is allowed in the school or the Wellness Center.

We will do our best to keep you updated on new developments as we received them.  Students in grades 7-12 should continue to check their emails.  Parents, please continue to check Infinite Campus and the school website.  

We will be waiting for guidance from the Department of Education regarding the possible makeup of these 4 weeks.  The law states we must have a minimum of 1,080 hours of school.  Only legislature can change this law.
