March 9: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

The coronavirus (COVID-19) remains a top concern for everyone. At this time, staff and students at St. Cloud Area School District are reporting to work and school as usual. The District is actively monitoring the situation in partnership with Minnesota Department of Health, Minnesota Department of Education, CentraCare Health System, and local public health officials.

These are the current precautions that the District is taking related to COVID-19:

  • Suspending all district-sponsored out-of-state travel for students and staff until further notice.
  • Staff or students who have traveled in the past 14 days to one of the CDC designated high risk countries of China, South Korea, Iran or Italy should not report to work or school pending a 14-day self-quarantine per CDC recommendations. Employees should notify HR of their status, and students should notify their school principal for further instructions.
  • All operational departments have been instructed to ensure high level cleaning and disinfection of all buildings on a daily basis.
  • Staff and students are being reminded of proper hygiene protocols.

St. Cloud Area School District is prepared, and prevention remains our priority. Be assured that we are monitoring the situation closely and working with the medical experts in our community to determine any necessary next steps.
