Coleman Schools will be closed on Friday, January 14th and Monday, January 17th. These will NOT be virtual learning days, but days we are closed due to illness and staffing shortages. We are sharing this information now in an effort to give families time to better prepare. The Board Meeting for Monday, January 17th will be moved to January 24th at 6p.m. These decisions are not made lightly, are done with significant thought and careful consideration of many pieces of data and various district factors. We will continue to be in person to the greatest extent possible. This time will allow for further deep cleaning of each of the classrooms and high traffic areas, time to regain staffing levels as well as create a potential break in the cycle over the 4-day period. As of now, exams are set as scheduled. However, the staff is giving input as to what is most appropriate to ensure students have time to get assignments in, have exam reviews and then take exams. Mrs. Hess will relay any additional information to students and parents as we have it. Games/athletic events for these days and over the weekend are not canceled; however practices, should a coach choose to hold them, will be voluntary. Please be healthy and safe. Should you need to be around others, do your best to social distance and mask. If students are not feeling well, they should stay home. Our goal is to get back into and stay in school in person, so thank you in advance for doing what you can to assist.
Easton took 1st and Chloe took 3rd over the weekend in wrestling. Congrats guys! #Coleman #athletics #wrestling #CometPride
