Welcome

The School District of Cameron in partnership with parents and community, ensures educational opportunities that give each student the knowledge, skills, and appreciation essential to succeed in an ever changing world, by providing a safe environment  and a caring staff that is responsive to individual needs.

Community Task Force on Facilities

Over the past several months, the Cameron School District has been reviewing its long-term facilities plan, its building configurations, as well as its educational program goals. While Cameron has taken great pride in maintaining its facilities, there are a number of deferred maintenance needs that will need future support beyond the current operational budget. Costs associated with many of these projects have skyrocketed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and inflation. While future budget increases from the State are still unknown, any potential increases in the state budget for public education will quickly be absorbed with on-going staffing related costs. In addition, challenges have increased related to educational programming and the District’s need to stay competitive in public education has never been greater. Understanding our community’s level of support must be researched before a recommendation can be made to the school board.

The Community Task Force on Facilities is charged with providing community input to the Cameron School Board on the following items below:

  • Review the varying identified capital needs, provide input on those needs and confirm support or lack thereof by issue;
  • Review the varying budget proposals by capital need and confirm support or lack thereof by issue;
  • Review the proposed operating budget, provide input on funding options and confirm support or lack thereof by option;
  • Review possible/potential referendum formats by issue/option, provide input and confirm support or lack thereof by option. 

Along with a recommendation on planning for our facilities, the District Administrator will consider the input from the Task force and may recommend that the district conduct a referendum campaign in an effort to secure funding for future facility needs.

If you would like to be considered for the Facilities Task Force, please complete the following Google Form https://forms.gle/XoMrcoNfoBzkmCow6  by Monday, September 12, 2022 by 3:00 p.m.

It is the intent of the District to assemble a large committee to encourage participation and engagement.  The selection of members will represent a broad cross-section of the community. The Task Force anticipates meeting approximately every 3 weeks between late September 2022 and December 2022, with attendance at future listening sessions encouraged.  Meetings will be held from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the Cameron High School LMC, and will be facilitated by Nexus Solutions.  Attendance at each meeting is essential to the work of the Task Force, please review the date(s) below.  Those selected to serve on the Task Force will be notified by Wednesday, September 21st.

Fall 2022 COVID Guidelines

Face Coverings

Face coverings are optional for all students and staff throughout the school buildings.

Contact Tracing & Quarantines

Cameron Schools will adhere to the following guidelines from the Department of Public Instruction: 

Schools are not required to conduct contact tracing as a standard practice but should continue to work with their Local and Tribal Health Departments (LTHD) in the case of outbreaks. Quarantine periods may be omitted. Asymptomatic (exposed) children and staff, regardless of where the exposure occurred, no longer need to quarantine. Students or staff who self- identify as close contacts may continue to attend school/work if they remain asymptomatic.

If the symptomatic student or staff cannot be tested immediately, they should be sent home and allowed to return to school/work as long as they have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and their symptoms are resolving, or if a medical professional makes an alternative diagnosis. A negative test is recommended but not required for return to school/work.

Students and staff who test positive for COVID-19 should isolate for at least 5 days. If they are asymptomatic or symptoms are resolving and they have been fever-free for 24 hours, they may return to school/work after Day 5 (on Day 6 with Day 0 being day of test or onset of symptoms). CDC stipulates this return may occur on Day 6 provided: • the individual is able to mask, they must do so through Day 10. • If the individual is unable to mask, it is recommended they have a negative test on Day 5 or later to return to school/work prior to day 11.

Facility Cleaning

  • District buses will be sanitized as needed.
  • Hand sanitizer will continue to be readily available throughout the District.
  • Routine daily cleanings will continue throughout all school buildings.  
  • Supplies will be available for staff to disinfect commonly used spaces, desks and equipment as necessary.
  • All HVAC units will be set to maximize the amount of outside air brought into the buildings.

Food Service

Students will be reminded about good hygiene habits prior to entering the lunch line.  Sanitation stations will also be located in the cafeteria area.
