Dear Parents/Guardians,

At the January 11, 2021, board meeting, the Republic County USD #109 Board of Education approved an alteration of the Navigating Change Plan. Beginning February 1, 2021, Republic County USD #109 will no longer be offering Family Choice Remote Learning as an option for our education program. All students must attend in person learning.

The mitigation procedures implemented in the district have resulted in no known cases transmitted in the educational setting. Mitigation procedures will continue to be followed including all persons wearing masks/face coverings, temperature checks, hand sanitization, frequent cleaning, etc. 

The district will continue to work with the Republic County Health Department to keep our schools safe and open for in person learning. Students currently utilizing Family Choice Remote Learning are welcome to join the classroom at any time, but must do so by February 1, 2021. To transition a student back into the classroom or ask any questions, please contact the office of the school where your student attends.

USD #109 Superintendent
