Out of an abundance of caution, the District has decided to cancel classes at Blackshear Elementary Fine Arts Academy tomorrow, Monday, March 2. While the school is closed the District will make sure that our campus undergoes a thorough and deep cleaning. The goal is to make sure that our school is safe and clean so that our students can return to classes as soon as possible.
In the spirt of transparency I must inform you that one of the bats removed from Room 201, that did not come into contact with students or staff members, has tested positive for rabies. Once we have any additional results, we will share the information as quickly as possible.
We understand that this information is concerning. Therefore, we will hold a parent meeting to discuss the situation at the Kealing Middle School Theater at 6:00 PM, tomorrow, Monday, March 2.
Please see the attached letter in the email message for more details.
Thank you again for your patience and understanding as we ensure a safe environment for the students at Blackshear.
