• Stay Healthy, Stay Smart! Plan

  • As part of our Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan, following is our Cass School District 63 Stay Healthy, Stay Smart Plan. This was originally posted in August of 2021 and has been updated as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention changed its guidance on community transmission levels and school guidance. The CDC’s new COVID-19 Community Levels recommends aligning mitigations and precautions in the school setting with those in other indoor settings. Cass School District 63 has been aligning with CDC guidance. This and additional details are provided in the updated questions and answers that follow.
