Our District utilizes five risk thresholds of dark green, light green, yellow, orange, and red. These levels were released as guidance by the CDC Indicators for Dynamic School Decision-Making based on the number of new positive COVID-19 cases in the last 14 days. The CDC resource includes indicators to help Administrators and Districts assess their risk for COVID-19 in their schools while also reflecting the mutually dependent relationship between schools and their surrounding communities. We monitor COVID-19 in Audrain County specifically and collaborate with the Audrain County Health Department (ACHD) as necessary. 

As a community, we are facing a global pandemic never before seen in any of our lifetimes. The impact on our school family has been significant. Unfortunately, we are uncertain what each day will bring, so we are making the best decisions for the moment with guidance from state, local, and national health and science experts. 

The top priority for the Mexico School District remains the education of our students. We want you to know we are committed to teaching, learning, and caring, even during COVID-19.
