BREAKING NEWS – Davenport Community School District will be going all-online for 2 weeks, starting next Monday, November 16, until Tuesday, December 11. This means that all in-person learning and extracurricular activities (including sports) will be temporarily ceased. 

 

Our schools are shutting down due to the “the rising case counts of COVID-19 and high positivity rate of COVID-19 tests in Scott County,” Superintendent TJ Schneckloth said in a district-wide email about the shut-down. 

 

Meal Pick-up Information

 

Daily meal pick-up will still be available to the Hybrid students which are now all-online starting next Monday.

 

“Meals will be available to pick-up Monday through Friday from 10 A.M to 1 P.M at Sudlow Intermediate, Smart Intermediate, Williams Intermediate, Wood Intermediate, and Buffalo Elementary School.” Meal pickups include 1 breakfast and 1 lunch per day, per student. All these meal pickup locations will be closed during school calendar holidays.

 

For more information, contact Food Nutrition Services at 563-336-7430.

 

Mental Health and Health Services 

 

According to the email, the District will work with school-based therapists to provide “telehealth services” to those students on their caseloads. The District also will work with other community providers “to offer virtual support services to students based upon need.”

 

For problems of physical health, “Our school nurses will continue to provide nursing services virtually related to health counseling, immunization requirements, completion of state immunization audit, etc.”

 

More Information

 

More information will be sent to district families through posts on the District website, through email and phone, posts in Parent Portal, social media, and mail packets to families. 

 

Please continue to follow safety guidelines including social distancing, wearing a mask around other people, washing hands, and staying home when you are sick or have been exposed to COVID-19.
