Important Announcements

  • Dear Parents/Guardians,

    The Armour School Board and Tripp-Delmont School Board jointly passed a new policy for the 14-day Department of Health recommended “Close Contact” quarantine. As a reminder, “Close Contact” means that your child(ren) have been exposed to a person that is COVID positive, but that your child(ren) have no symptoms themselves.

    When a child has been determined as a “close contact”, the Department of Health recommends a 14-calendar day quarantine. Armour School Board/Tripp-Delmont School Board has passed a policy in which calendar days 1-7 of close contact quarantine the child(ren) will stay home, but on calendar day 8-14 of quarantine, if the child(ren) are still symptom free, they may return to school under a MASK MANDATE. During this time, their temperature and COVID symptoms will be checked twice a day to ensure they stay symptom free. During days 8-14, a child can return to in-person learning at the school if they wear a mask all day (minus eating). Should your child or family not want to wear the mask, you may remain virtually learning for the entire 14-calendar day quarantine.

    If at any time during the quarantine your child(ren) develop symptoms, they are no longer considered a “close contact” and thus would no longer qualify to return to school under the mask mandate.

    This policy does not change the quarantine regulations for students that are involved in extracurricular activities (athletics, contests, concerts), they are still mandated no participation for the full 14-calendar days of practice and play.

    Starting November 1st, the Tripp-Delmont School will be moving our breakfast start time back to 7:50. Students will be able to enter the building at 7:50 with breakfast and walk club/recess running from 7:50-8:25.
    This will also possibly push bus route times back a little bit, so please be on the lookout for an updated bus route schedule.
