5/17/21 Dear Parents and Students, The Iowa Department of Public Health and the Governor’s office announced on Friday that Iowa schools transition to optional wearing of face masks for students and staff. Beginning Monday, May 17, 2021, Delwood Community School District will no longer require face masks while at school or during school activities. Face masks are optional. Parents will determine if they want their child to wear a face mask. The Iowa Department of Public Health will now treat COVID-19 cases like other child illnesses and requires schools to follow a protocol. If a student tests positive for COVID-19, the child will be excluded and sent home. Communication will be sent to parents of students who were exposed. However, schools are no longer required to quarantine exposed students. It will be up to parents to decide if they elect to keep their student home if exposed to a positive case of COVID-19 and to determine if any health risks exist. Our school building will operate as normal. Parents and visitors are expected to check in at the office. We do ask all parents and visitors to refrain from visiting the school building or activities if you have COVID-19 symptoms. If you have any questions, please contact the school office. Thank you and we look forward to a positive finish of the school year! Todd Hawley Superintendent Delwood Community School District

FREE MEALS BEGIN Monday, SEPTEMBER 14, 2020 The USDA will temporarily provide free breakfast and lunch for ALL children 18 and under. The Delwood Community School District is participating with the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) to continue the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) through the end of 2020, or until available funding runs out. The flexibilities allow summer meal program operators to continue serving free meals to all children into the fall months. This unprecedented move will help ensure – no matter what the situation is – children will have access to nutritious food as the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. • For the time being, this means ALL children ages 18 and under will be eligible for free meals (1 breakfast and 1 lunch daily). • We will serve in-person learners at Delwood Elementary at their regular lunch times. • Grab and go for remote learners or other eligible children will still occur daily from 11:00-11:30. Please call into the school building each morning by 8:30 to place your pre-order for the day. Meal pick-up bags will include breakfast and lunch meals. 563-674-4164 • Pick-up available at the door to the west off the cafeteria. This will be along Delmar Ave and pick up time will be from 11:00-11:30. • When funds run out, we will go back to the National School Breakfast and Lunch programs and students will be charged according to their eligibility.
