The ICSD Hybrid Learning plan has been posted on the Return to Learn page on the district website. Feel free to read through the Hybrid plan and if you have any questions, contact the Central Office at 319-334-7400. The Hybrid plan is one of three plans the district has developed due to the Covid-19 outbreak. At this time the district intends to return to school utilizing the "On-Site" model. The On-Site plan gives parents the option of sending their children to school or the choice of remote learning from their homes Monday - Friday.

The school district will continue to work with Public Health and if a change in the education model is needed, the district will communicate that change.

Dear Independence parents, staff and community members:

We have learned that a member of our Independence staff has tested positive for COVID-19. I am writing to update you with some important information, and to reassure you that we will continue to take every step possible to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff.

The individual who has tested positive is at home recovering. The district is working with the Iowa Department of Public Health and Buchanan County Health and anyone who was in contact with this person will be contacted. I want to remind our staff and students: if you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should contact your physician immediately.

At this time, we are preparing for the upcoming school year and we’ll be following all CDC guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting prior to building/district reopening. We encourage all of you to continue following the CDC’s recommendations to remain healthy and well.

Our greatest priority is the safety of our students, staff and families. Please continue to take necessary precautions to protect yourself and those around you.

We are grateful for the opportunity to serve you and your family, especially as we face this challenging situation together. Thank you for your support of the Independence Community School District.

Sincerely,
Russell Reiter, Superintendent
