Dear Rich Hill Community

Dear Rich Hill Community,

Well, this wasn’t how I wanted to start out the school year, but my COVID test came back positive. 

After consultation with Bates County Health Officials and the school board, we have decided to postpone the start of school until Monday, August 31st. This gives individuals I was in close contact with time to develop symptoms or get tested if they need to. 

We will start school in Phase ORANGE and recommend(not require) that students wear masks in the building. Because most people aren’t in the building, we are attempting to work on Acellus online students from home, but there’s only so much we can do. Acellus students probably won’t start on August 31st. We will let you know as soon as we know how quickly they will be entered into the system.
