Hollister R-V School District and COVID-19
We are continuing to work closely with the Taney County Health Department (TCHD) and the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to monitor COVID-19, the impact it is having on our area, and how we can best protect and serve our students. The Hollister R-V School District (HSD) is taking action to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus and will make reasonable best efforts to minimize risk. In addition to consulting with the TCHD and DESE, Hollister Schools are following guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).
Each day we acquire new information and assess the effect that information has on our students, families, staff, and current plans we have in place.
AMI and AMI-X Plans
The Hollister R-V School District has worked through a collaborative process to implement an Alternative Method of Instruction (AMI) and Extension (AMI-X) plan to be utilized when school is closed due to a health concern, inclement weather, flooding, exceptional emergency circumstances, or other natural disasters.
The goal of the AMI and AMI-X plans is to embed learning activities focused on reinforcement of critical learning standards, enrichment activities, or support for further skill development. Consistent practice and exposure to skills without interruption is the most effective way to ensure student understanding and mastery of content knowledge.
We will notify all parents/guardians, as we have in the past, via school outreach calls/text and social media postings in the event of school closures.
