Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) IPS Response Plan 1

In an effort to continue to keep our students, staff and families safe from COVID-19, which has been classified as a pandemic, Indianapolis Public Schools is closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year by executive order of Governor Holcomb. This includes all IPS schools, childcare services, health services, athletics, enrichment and after school activities.

While we understand the hardship that closing the entire district will have on many of our most vulnerable families, the health and safety of our students, staff and families is our primary concern.

This decision has not been made lightly, but it has been made to help mitigate and slow the spread of COVID-19 throughout our community. This is an unprecedented health crisis and we must rely on the wisdom and guidance of our public health departments and authorities.

En un esfuerzo por continuar manteniendo a nuestros estudiantes, personal y familias a salvo de COVID-19, que ha sido clasificada como una pandemia, las Escuelas Públicas de Indianápolis están cerradas del 13 de marzo al 1 de mayo. Esto incluye todas las escuelas de IPS, servicios de cuidado infantil, servicios de salud, atletismo, actividades de enriquecimiento y extracurriculares.

Mientras que entendemos las dificultades que tendrá el cierre de todo el distrito para muchas de nuestras familias más vulnerables, la salud y seguridad de nuestros estudiantes, personal y familias es nuestra principal preocupación.

Esta decisión no se ha tomado a la ligera, pero se ha hecho para ayudar a mitigar y frenar la propagación de COVID-19 en toda nuestra comunidad. Esta es una crisis de salud sin precedentes y debemos confiar en la sabiduría y la orientación de nuestros departamentos y autoridades de salud pública.
