We have had to quarantine approximately 30 kids in the last two days at the high school. With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, I am asking for your help. I know that kids want to spend time together, and COVID has been very hard for them. Unfortunately, what we have again seen in the last two days is that the contact kids are having with each other at get-togethers outside of school are leading to positive cases and more quarantines. We are asking for your help over this Thanksgiving holiday to stop the spread amongst our high school kids. Please limit the time they are with large groups of friends. We really do not want to have to go virtual or even hybrid between now and Christmas break, but that is possible if we continue to see this spread. Our concern is that kids will hang out together over the Thanksgiving holiday break and cases will be higher when we return next week than they are noW. Please help up stop that from happening. Thank you all! I do sincerely hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving! While it has been a challenging year, we also have many things to be thankful for. Dena Smith Superintendent

Our first basketball game is quickly approaching as we take on Iberia this Friday, November 20. We want to make sure you are all aware of our guidelines for basketball season home games. 1. The entire side of the bleachers behind the scorers table and team benches will be reserved for Linn students and staff. This will allow us to spread kids out while still allowing them to attend. The students will either have to social distance or wear a mask. 2. Allow four tickets per player for opposing teams. No limit on Linn spectators at this time. 3. Within 10 minutes, all spectators need to have cleared the gym after the game. 4. Cheerleaders will only attend home games. 5. Masks are required for all spectators unless social distancing can occur. Failure to comply may result in removal from the gym.

As many of you may already be aware, today, Governor Mike Parson, the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) announced modifications to Missouri’s K-12 school reopening and operating guidance. The large number of students and school staff members quarantined in recent weeks has presented a significant strain for educators, school leaders, and Missouri families alike. Under the updated guidance, proper mask wearing may now prevent individuals from being identified as close contacts in K-12 schools that have implemented a mask mandate. This means that if both individuals at school – the person diagnosed with COVID-19 and the person exposed to the positive case – have masks on and are wearing them correctly, the individual exposed does not need to quarantine. The Osage County R-II Administrative Team will meet tomorrow to discuss recommendations for new operating procedures specifically regarding the wearing of masks. These recommendations will then be presented to the Board of Education at the regular meeting on Tuesday, November 17. Following that meeting, we will put any new procedures out to the faculty, staff, students and public. I want all families to be prepared that new procedures are likely coming in the very near future. We will keep you updated as we know more.

In light of the fact that we have seen the number of positive COVID-19 cases in school increase as well as the cases in Osage County as a whole, we are going to postpone the craft fair scheduled for October 25. We hope to be able to re-schedule it at a later day if it become safer to do so. We hate having to postpone this traditional event, but feel it would be irresponsible to hold a large multi-community event during a time when cases are spreading and a lot of those cases are coming from large gatherings.

Just a reminder that all parents of students who are picking children up after school need to do so via the parent pick-up line. This is for students in elementary, middle and high school. Please follow the established process. This includes giving your name to the ladies close to the catwalk and getting a cone number. Your child will then be at the cone number you were given when it is your turn. We load ten cars at a time. Please wait in line until all ten cars have loaded and that line is dismissed. Do not pull out of the line and go around others. This creates a very unsafe situation for everyone involved. Thank you for helping us keep everyone safe!

Since we now have our seating charts in place and some kinks ironed out on buses, we are no longer going to require our students to wear masks when getting on or off the bus. Thank you to all of those who were very diligent about doing this! Beginning in the very near future, we will have touchless thermometers mounted on the buses. Students will place their hand in front of the thermometer for a very quick temperature reading. During morning pick-up, if a child has a temperature over 100.4 and if the parent is at the bus stop, the child will remain in the parent's care and will not board the bus. If the parent is not at the bus stop, the child will wear a mask for the entire trip and will be seated in a seat alone. Once the bus gets to school, parents will be contacted to pick up their child. On the afternoon route, no child with a fever over 100.4 will be allowed to board a bus. The child will remain at school and parents will be contacted.

Beginning today, September 2, all students at Linn R2 will be getting free breakfast and lunch through December 31, 2020 as part of a program through the Department of Health and Senior Services. If your child is a resident of our district, but does not attend school at Linn R2, you may also get free breakfast and lunch for any child under the age of 18. If you wish to take advantage of this, you will need to contact the building offices at 573-897-4200 to let them know how many meals you will need. Pick up of these meals will be daily at 10:15 AM. If you have already paid money on your child's lunch account, we will just keep that money in their account so when we have to start charging again, it will be there. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Kindergarten parents: We neglected to adjust our supply list to ask for nap mats that are easy to wipe instead of soft blanket material. The traditional vinyl or plastic mats work well. If you have already sent or planned to send a blanket, we will use these at nap time and then send home to be washed until you have a chance to make the necessary adjustment. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. Thank you!

We want to make sure everyone is aware of our upcoming events and guidelines. First, I want to let you all know that our re-opening plan can be found by going to the district website at linn.k12.mo.us and clicking reopen plan at the top. As part of this plan, all students who will be riding the bus must have a mask on when they get on the bus and when they get up out of their seat to get off the bus. While they are seated in their seats, they may take the mask off. All 7-12 grade students will also need a mask during times when they cannot social distance such as between classes, standing in lunch line, etc. All students who ride buses will also only be assigned to ride one bus. If you have not yet let us know where your child will be picked up and dropped off, please let us know as soon as possible. Thursday, August 20 is our Open House. Elementary open house is from 12:00-7:00 and MS/HS is from 3:00-7:00. We have allowed more time in order to allow families to come at different times and limit the number of people who are here at one time. We hope to see you there! All adults must wear masks to Open House. 7th grade will also have their mock school day from 4:00-5:00 on August 20. Parents who will be dropping off their child for school may do so beginning at 7:15. Breakfast will be served from 7:15-7:40. Parents who will be picking their child up from school may do so beginning at 4:00. We will let buses and high school drivers leave before parent pick-up. We will be utilizing the main parking area for parent-pick up after school. We will not be utilizing the circle drive behind the elementary school. We can’t wait to have all of our students back with us. We are committed to doing everything we can to keep our kids healthy and safe while providing a high quality education. We will see you soon!

Welcome Kindergarten Class of 2033! Some members of our school team are on a mission today! Parents, as your child discovers their welcome sign in your yard, we invite you to snap a picture of your kindergartener with their sign and add it to the facebook comments section. If you would rather send it to the teacher's email address, that is also fine. The teachers would love to display these at school. Students, we can't wait to see you in person.

COVID-19 RE-OPENING PLAN By following the link below, you can view the entire COVID-19 Re-opening plan as it stands at this time. Please keep in mind that COVID-19 guidelines are constantly changing. As a result, this document will likely change throughout the year as well. If you have comments or suggestions, please email smithd@linn.k12.mo.us. It is also important to remember that there are many different opinions and beliefs regarding COVID-19, including within the medical community itself. This plan cannot encompass the beliefs of everyone, but we have developed a plan that we feel gives us a good guideline by which to make decisions. We will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments as necessary based on the circumstances present at that time. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jJkXAOZB3syFS4dnhR2q23TIyvfTumd0CTOInpO_z70/edit?usp=sharing

One of the questions I’m receiving a lot is if we have to go to virtual learning will it be the same as it was last spring. To say we were completely unprepared to go to complete distance learning in March would be an understatement! Since that time, we have learned a lot. If we have to go to virtual instruction again, we will continue with new learning. Teachers will not just be doing review. They will be utilizing Google Classroom and Zoom to provide instruction. There may be other platforms they use as well if they are more suited to their content. Students in grades 7-12 will be provided with a Chromebook this year. For those families who do not have access to technology in grades K-6, we will be working with each family individually to provide instruction through a different method. There may be some students in grades 7-12 who also do not have internet access at home. Again, we will work with each family based on their needs. Please just know, new instruction will be occurring. Several of you have already sent questions or suggestions. I may not respond to you right away because I won’t be back in the office until the end of next week. Please continue to send your questions and suggestions! I will go through them all carefully when I return. For now, please have a great weekend. Try to forget about the stress this pandemic is causing right now and just enjoy some time with your family. Together we will get through this and we will help each other through the rough spots!

COVID-19 Protocols Dear Parents and Community Members, I know there are a lot of questions regarding school re-opening in the fall. We have been collaborating with the Osage County Health Department and and other area schools to develop a set of protocols designed to keep our faculty, staff and students as safe as possible when school resumes. We want our kids back at school and recognize the importance of having in-seat learning opportunities for our students. We also understand that virtual learning is not ideal for student learning and often creates additional stress for families. Please take a moment to view the draft protocols by following the link below. Please look these over and let us know your thoughts. You can send any feedback or suggestions to smithd@linn.k12.mo.us. While we may not be able to implement every idea, we will definitely consider every idea presented. We want your input! I hope you are taking some time to enjoy the summer despite the continued stress of COVID-19. Stay safe and healthy and we will see you soon!

There seems to be a lot of stress regarding the wipes and hand sanitizer items on the school supply lists. Those are on there every year and we did not take them off this year. We thought if people had any extras at home and could send one in, that would only help the overall cause. Please know the school is purchasing a lot of wipes and a lot of hand sanitizer. If you don’t have these items and/or can’t find them anywhere, please do not stress over it. We will take care of it. If you have extras you want to send in, we will take them. If not, that is absolutely fine!
