What should I expect if my in-person learner is quarantined?
Students and teachers will be expected to participate in distance learning and instruction during the quarantine. Students are encouraged to check their email for communications from their teacher(s) and monitor their assignments on Google Classroom. Teachers will be working to upload instruction and assignments into Google Classroom as quickly as possible. Further guidance specific to your student(s) will come directly from their teacher(s).
Will my child be counted absent/sick while they are quarantined?
The contact related quarantine absences do not count against a student’s attendance as long as the student is actively participating in distance learning.

2. Providing our students with engaging educational opportunities.
3. Promoting open lines of communication between all Cardinals.
Please understand it is impossible to develop a plan that takes into consideration every condition we may face during the coming school year. As such, the plan being presented may see additions or omissions made to it based upon information provided to us by our local, state, and national level officials and departments. We ask everyone to remain flexible with the district as we continue to navigate the constant changes of the Covid-19 pandemic and to please reach out to us with your questions or concerns. We much appreciate your patience as we are doing our best to ensure the most impactful learning experience for all students in the Stewartsville C2 School District.
