Despite a challenging start to the school year, it is a pleasure to report that all SDMA schools have been operating much closer to "normal" during the past several weeks. There are only seven more weeks left in the 2021-2022 school year, so hopefully we can finish the school year on a high note.

SDMA COVID-19 Update - 2/11/2022
02/14/2022
Dear SDMA Families and Staff, The School District of the Menomonie Area was notified this week that in addition to halting most COVID-19 contact tracing and disease investigations, the Dunn County Health Department will no longer be reporting student COVID-19 cases to the school district. Without reliable and timely notifications of positive cases by the health department, some of the current mitigation measures in the school district can no longer be implemented in an effective manner. Due to this change in protocol by the health department, procedures in the SDMA will be changing on Monday, February 14 to better reflect the voluntary self-reporting practices now in place in our community.
