On Sunday March 15, 2020, Governor Kim Reynolds recommended that K-12 school districts close from Monday, March 16, through Friday, April 10, 2020. On Monday, March 16, the Scott County Health Department took the position that school districts follow the Governor’s recommendation. With this letter, the Davenport Community School District, along with Bettendorf, North Scott and Pleasant Valley, are announcing the closure of all schools through Friday, April 10. At this time we plan on school resuming on a regular schedule on Monday, April 13, 2020. We know that there are more unanswered questions than answers at this time. I’m hoping that additional guidance will be provided by the Governor this afternoon at her 4:30 pm press conference. Among them is the expectation from the state as to if and how this loss of student education is made up. We will provide more information as it becomes available. What we do know at this time is that the district will be providing some form of pick-up meal support similar to what has been made available to students in past summers. We also know that the state associations have suspended all athletic, music and speech practices/contact, games and performances from today through April 12, 2020. This is an unusual time for all of us. Please continue to follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance to protect your health by practicing social distancing and avoiding close contact with people who are sick. In addition, keep washing your hands often, covering your coughs and sneezes, and stay at home if you are sick. If you have questions about COVID-19 itself, please contact Iowa Dept. of Public Health’s Center for Acute Disease Epidemiology at (800)-362-2736 or by dialing 211.
Following Sunday’s announcements from Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, all spring activities of Iowa’s high school Unified Activities partners – the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, the Iowa High School Athletic Association, the Iowa High School Music Association, and the Iowa High School Speech Association – will be prohibited through the state’s K-12 school recommended closure of four weeks. Gov. Reynolds announced the recommended closure in collaboration with the Iowa Department of Public Health, in response to community spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Iowa. Prior to April 10, the schedule will be assessed as necessary with information from the Governor, Iowa Department of Public Health, Iowa Department of Education, and activity partners at the IGHSAU, IHSAA, IHSMA, and IHSSA. Per CDC guidelines recommending the cancellation of gatherings of more than 50 individuals for at least eight weeks, events following the planned four-week school closure in Iowa will be updated as the situation develops.
At the Davenport Community School District, the safety of our students and staff is of utmost importance. With the constant changes in recommendations from the World Health Organization, Center for Disease Control, Iowa Department of Public Health, as well as regional and local health care experts regarding COVID-19, we are taking proactive measures to ensure everyone’s health and safety. The DCSD has more than 2,000 employees and nearly 15,000 students. It’s our role and responsibility to be proactive in protecting our students, staff and community. In order to be transparent in our communications and decision-making, we’ve developed a list of resources and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) to help our parents and students understand what’s happening within our schools.
Fortunately, Davenport Community School District has not experienced a case of the Novel Coronavirus, known as COVID-19, but it is causing much anxiety in our community, state and the world. DCSD is working closely with Scott County Public Health and the Iowa Dept. of Public Health (IDPH) to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff.
We can't stop thinking about the big announcement the Davenport Central High School Marching Band received last week! This talented group of musicians was invited to perform in the 2022 London New Year's Day Parade! Congratulations students on this tremendous recognition and achievement!
