BUHLER, Kan. — Buhler USD 313 released their plan for using the gating criteria for their district Friday morning.

Each Friday the Reno County Health Department releases the 14 day positive test rate and the 14 day new case average. This is the second week in a rolling two week average for schools. The data released dictates the gating criteria color to be followed for the coming week.

Until the community testing rate gets to 1.8% of the population for a 2 week period, new cases will be used for determining criteria color.

The numbers as of Friday are, 14 Day PTR-9/11, 7.30% and 14 Day New Case-9/11, 67. This is down from last week.

Starting Monday, September 14th USD 313 schools will be in the yellow zone. This means on-site learning will continue with grade-level recess only and grades 6-12 will go to modified transitions.

Travel to sporting events will include only active participants.
