Release from Reno County Health Department

Due to several positive COVID-19 cases within Buhler Grade School and those classrooms needing to quarantine; Buhler Grade School will be closed to in person classes beginning September 21, 2020. In conjunction with the USD 313 Superintendent Cindy Couchman, it was decided to close the grade school thru Sept. 29, 2020, pending no further positive COVID-19 cases evolve.

Parents with students in classes of a case were notified by the Buhler School District and the Reno County Health Department will follow up with phone calls to the parents of those that need to quarantine due to exposure to COVID-19.

Please continue to be vigilant by washing your hands, social distance by at least six feet or more, wear a mask when you are in public places and stay at home if you are not feeling well. It is very important that people continue to follow the guidelines to help decrease the spread of COVID-19.

Additional information from Superintendent Cindy Couchman via Facebook:

The district has been notified of 5 confirmed cases of COVID-19 at Buhler Grade School. Buhler Grade School students with close contact to these positive cases will need to quarantine starting immediately until September 30th. If your child is a close contact, you will be receiving a call to give guidance regarding immediate quarantine procedures. If you do not receive a follow-up phone call, you may assume your child was not a close contact and does not need to follow quarantine procedures.

Due to the RCHD confirmation of these positive cases, USD #313 will be closing Buhler Grade School to in person learning beginning Monday, September 21st through Tuesday September 29th. All Buhler Grade School students will be moving to our Flex Learning model during this closure. This closure only affects Buhler Grade School – all other Buhler attendance centers will be open for in-person learning.
