Indiana Schools Set to Reopen July 1st

Dear South Putnam Families, 
 
The South Putnam Community School Corporation appreciates the patience and understanding of our students, families, staff and community members during the past few months. Per Governor Holcomb and State Superintendent Dr. McCormick, schools are permitted to resume normal operations beginning July 1, 2020 and we could not be more excited to hear this great news! 
 
The Indiana Department of Education, in conjunction with the Indiana Department of Health and the Indiana Family and Social Services Agency, released guidance for the reopening of Indiana schools. We are continuing to work on safety measures and other protocols and will share more information as soon as possible. The partnership between the school corporation and our families has always been and will continue to be vital in our mission to provide the best educational opportunities for our students. School staff will be receiving professional development on screening student health situations and parents are encouraged to closely monitor the health of their students and send them to school only if they are well. 
 
South Putnam Community School Corporation will open for the first day of school on Monday, August 10, 2020 and will: ● Require students and staff to be fever free for 72 hours without the use of fever reducing  medication before returning to school ● Allow the use of water fountains for bottle or cup refills only ● Utilize a separate space in each school to treat symptomatic students ● Restrict visitors and guests in our schools ● Discontinue perfect attendance incentives 
 
We are currently working to develop an online alternative for students that may not be able to return to school due to COVID-19 circumstances and we will provide more information on these options in the coming days.  
 
On-line registration will begin on July 20 and in person registration at our school buildings will be on July 29, 12pm - 7pm and July 30, 8am - 3pm.  
 
Please be sure your contact information in Harmony is correct and watch your email for further information. We look forward to a successful 2020-2021 school year and cannot wait to have our students back in the classroom.
