Superintendent Weekly Press Release May 8, 2020
Dear Cedar Bluffs Families,
So originally the Administration picked out August 1st for our graduation date, giving us the most time for things to return to normal. After we did surveys it was asked if we could pick alternate dates as well, so June 20th and July 11th were also added as possibilities with the understanding that we will do an in-person graduation as soon as we are allowed. If July 11th passes and we still see no end to the restrictions of social distancing, then we will need to prepare for a remote graduation with the hope we can still do an in-person graduation on August 1st.
The Foundation board members meet this week and have decided to cancel “Cedar Days” for this summer. Hopefully we can plan for something big in the summer of 2021.
The Directed Health Measure for Saunders County issued by Governor Ricketts will expire on May 10th and therefore, the Cedar Bluffs Community Wellness Center will re-open to its Members for use of the facility starting Monday, May 11th under the social distancing guidelines. The Cedar Bluffs Public School reserves the right to close the facility for any reason including non-adherence to the social distancing rules. Please remember to wash your hands frequently, don’t touch your face, disinfect machines before and after and maintain 6 feet from others. Please do not enter if there are 10 people in the facility.
Lastly, we are looking at alternative calendars for next year in case we are not able to begin school as scheduled. We are working with a committee to determine best starting dates or staggering school and just how to proceed with transportation if we are still under the social distancing guidelines. School in the fall may look very different but I continue to hold out hope that we may get back to normalcy soon.
