Dear Champion Parents, Staff, and Community Members:
Champion Local School District received notification of one new staff member that tested positive for Covid-19. Currently, we are seeing significant spread of the Covid-19 virus that is affecting students and staff in all three buildings. Because of this new spread and the number of those in our school community affected we will be moving to 100% remote learning for all buildings effective immediately through November 30. All extracurricular activities and sporting practices will be shut down during this time. We plan to return to our hybrid schedule on Tuesday, December 1.
It is imperative that we double-down over the upcoming holidays to slow the spread of the virus. If you are sick or not feeling well you must stay at home and isolate from others. It is important for all of us to recognize the urgency of the spread of Covid-19 in our local communities. Be vigilant, frequently wash your hands, use hand sanitizer, maintain social distance, wear facial coverings, and avoid gatherings as much as possible.
John J. Grabowski, Superintendent
