The Hitchcock-Tulare School District will honor the Governor’s directive for all schools to close next week across the state of South Dakota and be close Monday, March 16th through Thursday, March 19th. All Hitchcock-Tulare School buildings will be closed to everyone until further notice outside of essential custodial or administrative staff. Our buildings have been cleaned and disinfected and we want them to stay that way until we re-open. We will be in contact with state agencies and pass along necessary information as it becomes available. Please be safe and take any necessary precautions to avoid contact and spread of this disease. High school students who are in Chemistry or Spanish need to check their email daily to stay up to date on assignments as instruction for these courses will continue. When we re-open we will be reminding everyone that is sick or has a fever to stay home until they are fever free for 24 hrs without Tylenol or Ibuprofen. Thank you.
