Coronavirus Information and Eastern Howard Schools (Updated 03/27/20)

Comet Families,

Starting Monday, March 30th, Spring Break will begin for all of our students and instructional staff. There will be no eLearning taking place at this time. I do want to emphasize how important it is for our students to complete their previous eLearning assignments before we start the next eLearning session on April 21st

Governor Holcomb has put into place an executive order for Hoosiers to stay home in the fight against COVID-19 from March 25th to April 7th. Howard County is currently under an orange travel advisory. This means essential travel only for all of us. 

As a result of the above, the following changes have been made.

  • Only designated personnel will have access to any of the school buildings.
  • All entrances will be secured and locked.
  • Except for designated personnel, all Eastern staff members will remain home, and when appropriate, perform expected duties from home.

Eastern Howard Schools join Governor Holcomb in asking everyone to stay home unless you absolutely must be out for something essential. Let’s join in this effort so we may try to get back to normal activities as soon as possible.
