Please be advised that according to KPBSD’s Resident Coronavirus Cases on the Kenai Peninsula, Seward remains in the red with 13 cases within the last 14 days.
A reminder that for Seward:
Red is .5111 cases per day, or 7 over 14 days.
Yellow is .511 to .2565 per day, or 6-5 over 14 days.
Green is .2555 per day, or 4 over 14 days.
Here’s the thing…if there are no new resident cases between now and Friday, August 7, 2020 then Seward will move to 5 cases over the last 14 days and solidly in the Yellow. If there are no new resident cases between now and Saturday, August 8, 2020, then Seward will move to 3 cases in the last 14 days and solidly in the Green.
To me, this is clear evidence of the effectiveness of the City of Seward’s Emergency Mandates and the community’s willingness to do their part to limit community infection rates. This is worthy of celebration on so many levels, but especially for Seward students because:
- Coaches will be able to conduct in-person training of our fall athletes with District approved Mitigation Plans in place.
- Seward Schools’ Mitigation Plans for opening to students on August 24th will be much less restrictive than if we’re in the Yellow and certainly than if we’re in the Red.
On behalf of the students of Seward Secondary, thank you for doing your part, and please stay vigilant—wear those masks, keep up the social distancing, and wash your hands.
WAY TO GO SEWARD!
