Update 3/29/20 - Good Evening, this Dr. Rhodes Gothenburg Schools superintendent. Tonight I am joined by Dr. Shackleton from Gothenburg Health. Hello, this is Dr. Carol Shackleton, Chief Medical Officer at Gothenburg Health. As more positive COVID-19 cases continue being confirmed both statewide and regionally, we encourage you to remain vigilant in practicing strict social distancing. · Stay at least 6 feet apart from others at all times. · Keep group interaction to 10 people or fewer (and highly consider the necessity of ANY group interaction). · Eliminate discretionary social visits. · Work from home if possible; businesses continuing to operate should reduce unnecessary human to human interaction. · Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water, and refrain from touching your face. Additionally, the increase of potentially positive cases is requiring many individuals to self-isolate or self-quarantine based on clinical indicators. If this is the case, please keep practicing stringent social distancing as described earlier in addition to taking the following measures until cleared by your provider. · Remain separate from ALL other individuals. · Wear a mask if going outside your home. · Restrict all visitors. Please take care of yourself and those around you. We are all in this together. Isolation and quarantine can be very difficult, both physically and emotionally. If you know someone required to isolate or quarantine, consider options to help them during this trying time. For example, a grocery run and drop off at their home could go a long way to help them stay in isolation while showing them your support. As a community, let’s act as one to show we can face this pandemic responsibly and with a sense of purpose. Due to current guidance and recommendations from Gothenburg Health and the Two Rivers Health department Gothenburg Public Schools will be extending our closure through Friday May 1st. We will continue to provide remote learning opportunities and meals for our students. We do have one change in regards to school meals. Due to the health and safety of our Nutrition staff meals will need to be picked up on the east side of Gothenburg Public Schools beginning tomorrow. Be safe and be healthy.

Update 3/25/20 NSAA - All NSAA activity practices and competitions are suspended through May 1st.  These suspensions may be extended should the conditions warrant. Member schools and student-participants are expected to adhere to the NSAA Constitution & Bylaws and activity manuals during this time. The NSAA encourages all member schools to follow CDC, local, state and federal health department recommendations. As more information becomes available, official updates will be posted on the NSAA website and the NSAA social media platforms. NSAA Facebook   NSAA Twitter (@nsaahome)
