Regluar Board Meeting- Monday, May 17th, 5:00 p.m.
Dr. Harrist, State Health Officer for Wyoming, approved CCSD#2’s Variance request, dated effective today, April 9, 2021. This means that face coverings will no longer be required at any Carbon 2 campus or event – not including buses. We will still observe social distancing as “much as possible”.
IT IS VITAL THAT PARENTS HELP US COMPLETE THE YEAR BY KEEPING ANY STUDENT WHO IS ILL AT HOME – with a concerted effort to keep them home if they experience any of the Covid symptoms. At this time, we have no students out on qurantine due to a positive result or direct contact with a positive individual, and there is only 1 active case in all of Carbon County. This precaution will prevent direct contact which may require quarantines if it occurs.
Again, I want to thank all of you for the support you have shown the School Staff during this challenging Covid year!
Dr. Jim Copeland, Supt.
UPDATE – received 04.09.2021 after original response regarding our variance request: I apologize, but after receiving the written response from Dr. Harrist approving our variance request (which can be seen in the above link), I received another email from CCPH that it did not include on buses where 6 ft of distance (as much as possible) could not be maintained. Here is her email:
Jim, Below is from Alexia (Dr. Harrist) regarding the federal order for masks on public transportation. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Amanda Brown, Carbon County Public Health
There is a federal order requiring that masks be worn on public transportation (https://www.cdc.gov/
What I can say now is that while the Wyoming Department of Health can exempt a school from the state requirements, we do not have the authority to exempt them from any federal orders or requirements. So the school should be aware that the federal order is out there and the state cannot exempt them from that.
CCSD2 2021 Annual Stakeholder Meeting
Each year, CCSD2 holds an annual stakeholder meeting to discuss various grant funds, what those monies have been used for during the current year, and to take suggestions for future fund usage by any students, parents, community members, teachers, admins, etc.
This year’s meeting was held on Wednesday, May 5th. A recording of the meeting can be found here for those interested:
