Late last night/early this morning (Thursday, May 20th), a new law in Iowa went immediately into effect that bans school districts from requiring face coverings. The Camanche School District will follow this law. It is now an individual choice for students (parents) and staff in Camanche Schools to decide whether to wear a mask or not.
At Monday night’s school board meeting (5/17/21), action was taken by the Board to modify the requirement regarding wearing masks in the Camanche School District. Effective May 17th, the mandate for wearing masks was removed for outdoor activities and outdoor athletics. Also, the Board requests masks still are worn by those who have not been vaccinated. The current mandate for wearing masks inside our school buildings will remain in place until the end of the current school year. The school district will also plan to follow best practices as issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH). We acknowledge that there is conflicting guidance being issued by the CDC and the IDPH regarding the wearing of masks. Regardless, we plan to continue to work at meeting our goal of providing everyone in our schools a safe and quality learning environment as best we can. The administration and school board will continue to monitor best practice guidelines through the summer and will review this situation at upcoming school board meetings. Please feel free to contact your child’s building principal or me with any questions. Thank you for everything you have done to make this school year as successful as it has been. Let’s look to finish this school year on a positive note and plan to have a great start next fall.
Hey Camanche fans! Due to continued interest we’re going to extend the deadline for entering your suggestions for the new mascot! We’ll need you to submit your idea by next Monday, April 12th! If you haven’t done so yet, please complete the google form (link below) or stop by any of the schools or administration building to fill out a paper form in person. Thanks to all of you who have already submitted an idea, we love the input, feedback, and support!! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScwuxroyC1wZAiOHHnvgNNGLgNGpwiNdIN-jTqgnTQhiRrhhw/viewform?fbclid=IwAR3oXbENPlGj87Zj_rGWC0nLcl7cLZd2qIDk3SDvemi-KY-K-dBqQ6dfEX8
If you haven’t done so already, please remember to VOTE TODAY (3/2/21). Eastern Iowa Community College is requesting funding for projects that include a Career and Technical Education Center located in Clinton. No tax increase is projected for this bond referendum as it would replace a previous levy that is ending. This would make quality vocational programming more accessible for our students in a location close to Camanche. Voting is taking place at the Camanche Community Center today and polls remain open until 8:00 p.m.
Congratulations to the Boys’ Basketball team on reaching the State Basketball Tournament! Under normal circumstances, we would be talking about adjusting school schedules to facilitate student and staff attendance at this great event. Unfortunately, we still have not returned completely to a “normal circumstances” situation. The combination of the COVID-19 Pandemic and days of school postponed due to winter weather has dramatically impacted this school year’s calendar. As a result, we will run our normally scheduled school days during the state basketball tournament. If we did not do this, we would possibly need to keep the school year in session well into the month of June to meet state attendance requirements. Students will be allowed to attend Camanche game(s) at the state tournament if they follow their building principal’s expectations/procedures regarding student attendance at the state tournament. Thank you for your understanding of this situation and Good Luck to our Boys’ Basketball Team!
