March 26, 2020 Dear Parents and Staff: As promised, we have continued to work closely with the Lawrence County Health Department and other area schools to monitor concerns related to COVID-19 and the implementation of a suitable timeline for a safe resumption of school. After collaborating with those mentioned above, we have determined it will not be safe to return to school on April 6th as previously planned. Therefore, at the recommendation of the Lawrence County Health Department and in conjunction with other area school districts, Verona Schools will extend the wellness closure through Friday, April 24. We will reevaluate circumstances at that time and, if cleared by the Health Department, would plan to resume classes on Monday, April 27. The extension of this closure includes all extra- and co-curricular activities including practices, competitions, programs, and events. In order to better comply with guidance from the Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, all Verona campuses will be closed to all non-essential employees and all community patrons. All offices will be closed. You may call any of our campuses and leave a voice message which will be checked daily by building administrators. The District will continue to provide meal service Monday through Thursday to those who need it. We are in discussions with Apple Bus Company to use our school buses to transport meals. Meals will be available for pickup at the high school entrance from 11:00 - Noon. If you want to be added to the meal list, please call one of the school offices and leave a message. Also, please remember to practice social distancing when picking up meals. As this unprecedented situation continues to evolve, we will do our best to provide additional information as needed. We would continue to encourage you be vigilant in your observations of social distancing recommendations and crowd size limitations to ensure this closing does the greatest amount of good in slowing the progress of COVID-19.We hope and pray that you and your family are healthy and we want you to know that our District is here to help if your family is in need of support.
March 26, 2020 After careful consideration and thoughtful discussions with local public and private school administrators in Lawrence County, the Lawrence County Health Department has concurred that all schools in Lawrence County close until April 24th. Please understand, this was not a decision that was taken lightly and we understand that this will create hardships for many families and maybe even leave some angry. However, we believe that by implementing these closures, we can help slow the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19). These are new, unchartered waters. Even though Lawrence County currently has zero cases, we have several community members being tested daily and have to be realistic that it will only be a matter of time before it reaches our communities. We are a small county which means we have smaller resources of staff and medical providers. Slowing spread can help control overburdening our clinics and hospitals as well as our health department who conduct disease investigation if it arises. We ask for your patience and cooperation during this difficult and overwhelming time. We are ALL in this together and our goal is for everyone to stay healthy. Sincerely, Janella Spencer, RN, BSN Administrator

Hello fourth grade. Here are some links to get to the lessons. Look in the comments on the facebook post!
Buenas noches, familia Wildcat! Nuestro personal estaba ocupado hoy haciendo planes para apoyar a nuestros estudiantes a través de oportunidades de aprendizaje en línea. Los estudiantes pueden acceder a estos a través de las aulas de Google, nuestra aplicación del distrito y el sitio web. Estoy seguro de que hay otros lugares no mencionados, los maestros se comunicarán con sus clases específicas. Los entrenadores han estado en contacto con las familias, pero para asegurarse de que no haya preguntas; MSHAA ha detenido todos los juegos y prácticas mientras el distrito está cerrado (para más información, si es necesario, visite www.mshsaa.org). Las 3 oficinas del distrito contarán con personal de 10: 00-2: 00 de lunes a jueves hasta el cierre. Informe al distrito si está interesado en "Grab an Go" (desayuno y almuerzo) para sus estudiantes. Llame si tiene alguna pregunta o inquietud sobre la situación en la que nos encontramos. 833-402-9580 Estamos juntos en esto, y seremos más fuertes por ello.
Good Evening Wildcat Family! Our staff was busy today making plans to support our students through learning opportunities on-line. Students can access these through Google classrooms, our district app, and the website. I'm sure there are other venues not mentioned, teachers will reach out to their specific classes. Coaches have been in contact with families, but to be sure there are no questions; MSHAA has halted all games and practices while the district is closed (for more information, if needed, visit www. mshsaa.org). All 3 district offices will be staffed from 10:00-2:00 Monday-Thursday through the closing. Let the district know if you are interested in the "Grab an Go" for your students. Please call if you have any questions or concerns about the situation we find ourselves. 833-402-9580 We are in this together, and we will be stronger for it.
Dear 4th grade parents! Here is a video to help you with Mod 4: Lesson 2: page 5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=21&v=eISQqaAnWqg&feature=emb_logo
Buenas tardes Verona Familias! Estamos trabajando en planes para continuar ofreciendo desayuno y almuerzo gratis a nuestros estudiantes. Ofreceremos desayunos y almuerzos para llevar listos para llevar a partir de mañana, miércoles 18 de marzo de 11:00 a.m. a 12:00 p.m. Las comidas son gratuitas para cualquier niño entre las edades de 1 y 18. El niño debe estar presente para recibir la comida. En otras palabras, no puede enviar a un niño o un adulto a recoger la comida para el grupo. Las comidas deben ser recogidas por el niño para el que están destinadas. Entendemos que para los estudiantes que viven fuera de los límites de la ciudad, la recogida de comidas puede no ser una opción debido a problemas de transporte. En este caso, estamos ofreciendo comida para aquellos estudiantes tradicionalmente en nuestras rutas de autobús. La comida será entregada por voluntarios. Por lo tanto, le pedimos que solo solicite la entrega inmediata si son sus únicas opciones. El procedimiento de devolución es similar al procedimiento de recogida en el hecho de que los estudiantes deben estar presentes en el lugar de entrega para recibir las comidas. Llame a Verona High School si planea participar en el servicio gratuito de desayuno y almuerzo durante este tiempo de cierre inesperado de la escuela. Las comidas se ofrecerán de lunes a jueves de 11 a mediodía. El paquete de comida incluirá almuerzo para el día y desayuno para la mañana siguiente para cada niño. Debe llamar a la oficina para informarnos cuántos niños en su hogar necesitarán un paquete de comida y si lo recogerá o si lo entregará. Llama al 1-833-402-9580
Good Afternoon Verona Families! We are working on plans to continue offering free breakfast and lunch to our students. We will offer grab and go style breakfast and lunch beginning tomorrow, Wednesday March 18th from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm. The meals are free to any child between the ages of 1 and 18. The child must be present to receive the meal. In other words, you cannot send a child or an adult in to pick-up the food for the group. The meals must be picked up by the child for which it is intended. We understand that for students living outside the city limits, meal pick-up may not be an option due to transportation issues. In this case, we are offering meal drop off to those students traditionally on our bus routes. Meal drop off will be done by volunteers. Therefore, we ask that you only request drop-off delivery if it is your only options. The drop-off procedure is similar to the pick-up procedure in the fact, that students must be present at the drop-off location to receive meals. Please call Verona High School if you plan to participate in the free breakfast and lunch service during this time of unexpected school closure. Meals will be offered Monday – Thursday from 11 to noon. The meal package will include lunch for the day and breakfast for the following morning for each child. You must call the office to let us know how many children in your household will need a meal package and whether you will be picking it up or need it delivered. Call 1-833-402-9580
Hello Wildcats, Verona school district will be closing effective March 17th through April 2nd at the recommendation of the Berry Lawrence Health department and in conjunction with the Department of Education. District personnel will reevaluate the situation on April 2nd. We take this step with heavy hearts, but must take proper steps to ensure the safety and well being of our students and staff. We will be reviewing options to provide "Grab and Go" meals; more details will follow tomorrow. The expectation from the state level is the district continue to reach our students in an educational manner. Elementary students will come home with some items to work on, along with staff using on-line sources to reach students. Please be patient as we develop this plan. All grade level staff will meet tomorrow to cement the on-line educational interaction that we hope to achieve. During this unprecedented time we find ourselves, we will focus on the positive that we are doing our best to keep our Wildcat family safe. School will dismiss today March 16th at 3:45, like normal.

Verona R-VII School Families, As the information and guidelines about the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, continues to change daily, I wanted to let you know that our team of health professionals and District administrators continue to monitor this fluid situation to ensure the safety and health of our students and staff. Decisions made will be made with the most up-to-date information. According to the Centers for Disease Control, Coronavirus is a large family of viruses with common symptoms like the flu which include a fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. Flu activity typically peaks during the winter season, and most of the population is at a much greater risk of contracting seasonal influenza than coronavirus. Awareness The District continues to work with our partners at Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) and the Jasper County Health Department as they monitor and manage the current situation with both the flu and novel coronavirus. The Missouri DHSS has developed this helpful fact sheet and has a website dedicated to information about this new illness. The CDC also provides resources and information about the coronavirus at www.cdc.gov Cleaning and Disinfecting Our School We are taking additional measures to keep germs at a minimum including taking extra time to disinfect surfaces, encouraging good hand-washing with students, and a deep-cleaning of our buildings is scheduled on our Fridays off. Tips for Staying Healthy Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Cover your nose and mouth with a sleeve or a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Throw away the tissue. Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth to prevent the spread of germs. Stay home when you are sick. Students with acute respiratory illness are recommended to stay home and not come to school until they are free of fever (under 100° F) and any other symptoms for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicines such as cough suppressants. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects, such as phones, toys, and doorknobs, especially if someone is sick. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before eating and/or after going to the bathroom, blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty. We will stay in-touch if the situation in Verona and/or Southwest Missouri changes. Our students and their families are always our first concern.
Baseball fanwear orders have been distributed. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any items missing. Thank you all who supported the baseball program during this fundraiser!

HOW CAN WE DO THIS WITHOUT INCREASING TAXES? Each year the District retires or pays off old debt from previous bond issues. As this debt is paid off, the existing levy can continue and the funds can be used to pay for bonds that are sold for new improvement projects.
We apologize, if your student rides bus 4 there has been a delay in pick up. We are trying to resolve the issue as soon as possible. If you need assistance contact the elementary or high school offices.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY COME FROM TO PAY FOR THE BONDS? The District obtains bids and sells bonds to the buyer with the lowest interest rate. The District then pays back the debt over a period of years with tax dollars. This process is similar to a home loan.
Will the Bond Issue raise my taxes? No. This is a NO TAX INCREASE Bond Issue, meaning voter approval will not increase the District's current debt service tax levy, which is dedicated to the repayment of bonds.
