SDMF School Reopening

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the unknown timeframe of the COVID-19 situation. The SDMF will assess event cancellations and communicate information with you as soon as decisions are made. We are hoping to make decisions on whether or not to cancel events three to four weeks ahead of time. If you have questions about a specific school event, please call your child’s school.

The Centers for Disease Control recommends the following ways to minimize the spread of respiratory viruses.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing. If you use a tissue, throw it in the trash.
  • Routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • CDC recommends that travelers avoid all travel to China.
