As we prepare to return to school later this month, there are several things we want to bring to your attention related to what school will be like this year. The guidance being put out by the CDC, the Iowa Department of Public Health, and the Dubuque County Health Department has not been consistent. We recommend that you read all of the guidance and recommendations from these agencies to make the most informed decision you can regarding personal mitigation efforts for your child(ren).
