COVID-19 Staff Memo #1




Although the spread of COVID-19 appears to have started in China, it is important to remember that the coronavirus is not connected to any race, ethnicity, or nationality. At Mexico School District, we will not make assumptions about a student’s or staff member’s risk of illness based on any of these factors. Misinformation about coronavirus can create fear and hostility that harms people and makes it harder to keep everyone healthy. 

The health and safety of our students and staff is paramount, and we are closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19.

We continue to receive updates from the Audrain County Health Department, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), the CDC, and other local agencies to make informed decisions in the days ahead.
