May 1 Closure Letter

Dear Decatur County Community Schools Families,

As I am sure most people have heard, Governor Holcomb closed all schools in Indiana through May 1 which will not allow for staff or students to enter our buildings. Decatur County Community Schools will continue its original plan of being closed for the two weeks of March 23 through April 3, utilizing waiver days from the Governor. This means that no eLearning will take place for those weeks of March 23 through April 3. As I stated previously, by the end of March we will announce to everyone a decision on how school will proceed starting the week of April 6.

The Governor also delivered some amazing news that all state standardized testing has been waived for the remainder of the school year!

Please remember on Monday, March 23 we will be distributing student electronic devices. We are keeping the same schedule announced earlier this week. To see this schedule, and the full communication, please read the May 1 closure letter.

April Calendar and Information

In accordance with Governor Holcomb’s directive, Decatur County Community Schools will be closed through Friday, May 1. My sincere hope is all staff and students will be able to return to school normally on Monday, May 4 so we can wrap up this amazing and crazy school year. However, as we have all seen, this temporary situation we are currently living in is changing daily. This constant change is why Decatur County Community Schools, like all school districts in Indiana, are operating on a wait and see basis to determine what the future holds. While our students are not allowed to be in schools, we are still responsible for continuing the educational process for all students to the best of our ability. To see our updated schedule and read more school information, please read the April Calendar and Information letter.
