Thank you for your understanding of our need to close school today at Messiah. 

While our Covid positive numbers are higher than they have been in the past (see below), our primary purpose for closing was related to the stomach flu that has impacted many of your families and was quickly spreading through all of our classrooms.

Today, our cleaning crew was in the building providing an intensive deep disinfection of all of the spaces your children and our staff use each day. 

Finally, you may have seen news today that a new mask mandate in Lincoln begins tomorrow As we have in the past, Messiah will honor this mandate. Masks will be required of everyone when inside the building at Messiah when we return to school on Tuesday.
