March 25, 2021


Good morning,

This week is spring break and we have chosen not to gather information for the week. The data provided includes the COVID-19 numbers for March. You will notice that our numbers internally and in Cass County have improved, which is encouraging.

On April 5, 2021 our mask policy will go back to the original language of encouraged to wear for the lower level students and expected for our Middle and High School students when social distancing can not be achieved. The health and safety of our staff and students are still our number one priority and with the exception of our Washington building we have been able to achieve social distancing for most of the school day. Although mandated it will be important for our staff and students to wear masks when they are in close contact to one another.



Positives not recovered (staff/students)

Quarantined (staff/students)

Cass Co. % positive rate (7 days)














Having access to vaccinations for adults and lower positivity rate in both our school and county it is normal that the tendency is to not be as disciplined in our behaviors. Although this

is all good news we still must take the necessary individual steps to have a successful and safe final quarter of school in Atlantic schools.

In education,

Steven H. Barber
