Update from Supt. Andy Boe We are beginning to see a surge of COVID-19 in Douglas County at this time, according to Douglas County Public Health. We will continue to test students and staff as needed and refer positive cases to the nurse and DPHN. Our next steps will be to limit in person meetings and either re-schedule or host them online. As of now we are not limiting extra -curricular activities. However, cases are predicted to double every three days over the next two weeks. You may see us getting things ready for a transition to either a hybrid or remote learning model, but at this time we are only preparing. No decision has been made. We will continue to rely on our multiple layers of intervention to prevent spread of the disease. The two reasons we would cancel school would be because of a lack of staffing or a high student absentee rate. We would first ask for advice from DPHN and that make that decision. Please watch for further updates on our website, Facebook page and your e-mail. Andy Boe Superintendent Elkton School District #34
Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases in Douglas County, we have canceled the Curriculum Review Committee meeting scheduled for tonight, January 5th.

A message from Supt. Andy Boe The Elkton School District is doing everything it can to keep students and staff safe and in school. The ODE recently issued a statement recommending that Districts suspend extra -curricular activities as the new variant continues to spread. At this time the Elkton School District will continue to host spectators at our sporting events. We have multiple measures in place in accordance with recommendations from ODE and OSAA. Masking is one of those measures. We ask that you please respect our request that you wear a mask at these events so that we can continue to host them. As we move forward, our decision making will be based on what best serves our students and keeps them in school. Please, wear a mask when you come to events.
