Due to the increase of COVID cases in Richardson County and more locally in Falls City, Falls City Public Schools has made the decision to operate under their ‘Orange Safety Plan.”
Superintendent Tim Heckenlivey sent out the following statement on Monday night, November 10.
“As of Monday, November 16, all FCPS buildings will be operating under our Orange plan safety protocols. In an effort to keep our students in on-site learning, we will need your cooperation with enforcing strict protocols to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Face coverings or masks will be required at all times for staff, students and visitors within school buildings or on busses. Parents will be expected to continue monitoring their students for any COVID-19 related symptoms and enforcing any recommendations for isolation or quarantine. Let’s do our part to keep the kids in class, our Tigers in the game, and our school in session. Don’t let any more memories be taken away from these kids. We all want the same thing, a return to normalcy. The only way to get there is by navigating this path together.”
