We are in the midst of state-mandated distance learning due to the spread of COVID-19. This is an evolving situation and we will update our website an other communication channels with any changes. As of Friday, April 3rd, here are the most up to date details:

  • We have implemented our district distance learning plan.
  • On Tuesdays we will do our weekly delivery of distance-learning materials.
  • Drive-in WiFi is available in the north parking lot at the High School in Staples, and in the south parking lot at the Early Learning Center in Motley. Wifi will be available from 8am to 10pm, and includes the same filtering used while students were in the building. Please stay in your vehicles to maintain social distancing and prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you're unsure which parking lot to use, please see the maps in the sidebar of this page.
