Reno County Schools are in the GREEN Zone for the week 5-10-2021.
Because the number of people tested is low, we will be using the New Case Count (along with district positive cases and quarantines as secondary factors) for our School Gating Criteria. Buhler currently has 8 active cases so please continue to be diligent with mitigating measures.
For information on Buhler data see our landing page at:
For information regarding the community data please see: https://www.renogov.org/239/Health-Department
- 14 Day PTR: 10.7% (orange zone but low test population)
- New Case Count: 53 (green zone)
We continue to follow safety protocols that include but are not limited to:
- Wiping down desks between classes
- Sanitizing hands
- Wiping down frequently touched surfaces
- Spreading out during lunch
- Emphasizing social distancing
REMINDER: As our buses are running at capacity, please remind students that face masks are required on our buses.
Vaccination Information from Reno County Health Department:
Kansas is now vaccinating individuals 16 – up, vaccines do need to be age appropriate for the individual (Pfizer 16 yrs. and up, Moderna is for 18 yrs. and up). You may go to https://vaccinefinder.org/ and find locations that have the brand you are looking for. Reno County Health Dept. is scheduling appointments and walk-ins or go online and visit the Hutchinson Clinic, Dillon’s pharmacies, Walmart or The Medicine Shoppe for availability.
Encourage students over 16 to be vaccinated, they would not be excluded from end of year activities if they were exposed to Covid-19, as we would consider them immune for 6 months after they are 2 weeks post fully vaccinated. Any staff or students 2 weeks post fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine.
