ATTENTION SENIORS 2020-2021:

All students entering 12th grade and born after September 15, 1999, will need proof of 2 doses of the meningococcal vaccine (1 dose received on or after 16 years of age); OR 1 dose if received when the student was 16 years of age or older.

Seniors will be required to have proof of vaccinations PRIOR to starting their Senior year by Iowa's mandate.  This can be done at your primary physician's office or Wright County Public Health in Clarion (532-3461).  Please contact Erin Halverson R.N. if you have any questions: 515-293-0499 or ehalverson@clargold.org.  

* I am able to access a State of Iowa database to retrieve the document after the vaccine is given so you will not need to bring anything to the High School.   

Students entering 7th grade (if born after September 15, 2004) – 1 dose of meningococcal vaccine received on or after age of 10 – a booster dose will be needed at age 16. Students entering 12th grade (if born after September 15, 1999) – 1 dose of meningococcal vaccine at 16 years of age or older.

Incoming FRESHMEN - The state of Iowa requires that all 9th-grade students have a dental exam.   If you are seen for your exam over the summer, please ask your dentist or dental hygienist to fill out an exam form and return it to the Clarion-Goldfield-Dows High School office.  Fax: 515-532-2897 or to Erin Halverson: ehalverson@clargold.org

(Iowa Dental offices have this form and are aware of the mandate).

Seniors and Senior Parents:  a questionnaire was sent late Tuesday afternoon asking for you to complete and submit back to the school so we can get set up for the big day on the football field.  Any questions please contact the office.

Graduation 2020 will be held on Saturday, June 27th, at the football field starting at 6:00 p.m.  Rain date Sunday, June 28th.   There will be a practice but no day or time as of yet.

Driver’s Education Class:  Please make your final payment.  Dr. Ed. students:  When you are done driving for class, I will upload your information to the Iowa DOT & Wright County Courthouse.  If you are eligible for a school permit, first you contact the District Office 515-532-3423 to make an appointment to meet with the Superintendent and then you will need to also make an appointment at the courthouse.  Remember, you must live a mile away from the school and with this permit you may only drive from home to school events and back.  You are not able to pick up other students.  We do have some students that have not made their final payment.  This must be done before the info is updated.  Any questions, call the high school office.

CLARION-GOLDFIELD-DOWS SPECTATOR EXPECTATIONS 

Summer high school baseball and softball is here. In some ways, it will look the same. In many ways, it will look differently. With that being said, we are excited the athletes and coaches will have an opportunity to have a summer season. 

We have several guidelines and recommendations from the Center for Disease Control, the Iowa Department of Education, the Governor’s office, the Iowa Department of Transportation, the Iowa High School Athletic Association, and the Iowa Girls’ High School Athletic Union. We have been and will continue to be in contact with our local public health department as well. 

As many of these recommendations and guidelines will likely look similar, but perhaps slightly different at each venue you visit this summer. Each district is doing what they feel is best in terms of their facility and community. All game venues, fields, and facilities will be asking each of us in attendance to abide by posted rules/guidelines/recommendations. This is crucial for the summer sports to run as smoothly as possible. We are all making decisions with one main goal in mind: to keep our student-athletes, coaches, school personnel, umpires and our spectators as safe as we possibly can, while keeping the integrity of the game of baseball and softball intact. Your patience and cooperation is a must, more than ever before. 

As a spectator, we encourage you to bring your own lawn chairs. We anticipate very limited bleacher seating at home and away contests. There may be some venues where the bleachers are completely off limits. Many places will be extending their dugouts outside the fence down the first and third base sides all the way to the foul poles to allow teams to social distance the best they can. Some will likely be using bleachers to help with social distancing of the teams due to dugout sizes. 

We will expect, as a spectator, you will adhere to all but not limited to the following guidelines and regulations: 

  1. Spectators are encouraged to wear masks although this won’t be required.
  2. No concession stands are allowed to be open.
  3. Individual households are permitted to bring a cooler into the ballpark seating area; coolers
    are subject to search.
  4. No one should attend if they are: 
    1. Feeling sick
    2. Have a sick family member at home
    3. Your temperature is 100.4 or higher

2. No one should attend if they are experiencing any or a combination of the most common 

symptoms of COVID-19 such as: 

  1. Fever (100.4 or higher) or chills
  2. Cough
  3. Loss of taste
  4. Shortness of breath
  5. Headache or muscle/body aches
  6. Fatigue
  7. Sore throat
  8. 1. No sunflower seeds.
  9. 2. No spitting.
  10. 3. Practice social distancing (6’ apart) with everyone that is not in your family. This is expected in the bleachers, in lawn chairs or standing along the fence
  11. 4. Admissions: 
  1. Many places will not be taking admission.
  2. Some will be asking for free will donations to cover costs of umpires, etc.
  3. Some places will charge as usual.

We encourage everyone to bring their own hand sanitizer and use it often. Do not chase and/or retrieve foul balls or home runs. 

As a spectator, you will have to decide for yourself if attending high school baseball and softball games is right for you and your family. 

We will rely on everyone doing their part in order to have a successful, safe, and healthy summer sports' season. We all are counting on each other to do our part. This is still a very fluid situation. 

Please visit the IGHSAU and the IHSAA websites for more information. Thank you for your attention, cooperation and positive approach to the baseball and softball season. We are cautiously excited for our athletes and coaches to have a summer season 

Just a reminder:  We will be continuing with Silver Cord.  The purpose of this program is to instill within students the important role that community service and volunteering has in a successful community and to enhance student’s learning through direct services.  The Silver Cord is a distinguished service award available to CGDHS students who earn at least 300 hours of community volunteer service from the start of their freshmen year through May 1 of their graduating year.  The student will be recognized of this achievement by receiving a silver cord to wear at graduation.  Lots more information may be obtained by calling the high school office.  Due to the early dismissal of school and students not able to pick up blank forms for documenting summer service please write down the activity performed, the name of the coordinator at the service site and the amount of hours worked and turn into the high school office by September 1st.  Paperwork is being mailed to incoming freshmen.

 

Students that did not checkout be assured that all bags and items are safe and will be here for you to pickup next fall.  Please take care of your computer and charger at home.  Remember it belongs to the school.  It will need to be checked next fall also prior to school beginning.  It is your responsibility.

We have several guidelines and recommendations from the Center for Disease Control, the Iowa Department of Education, the Governor’s office, the Iowa Department of Transportation, the Iowa High School Athletic Association, and the Iowa Girls’ High School Athletic Union. We have been and will continue to be in contact with our local public health department as well. 

As many of these recommendations and guidelines will likely look similar, but perhaps slightly different at each venue you visit this summer. Each district is doing what they feel is best in terms of their facility and community. All game venues, fields, and facilities will be asking each of us in attendance to abide by posted rules/guidelines/recommendations. This is crucial for the summer sports to run as smoothly as possible. We are all making decisions with one main goal in mind: to keep our student-athletes, coaches, school personnel, umpires and our spectators as safe as we possibly can, while keeping the integrity of the game of baseball and softball intact. Your patience and cooperation is a must, more than ever before. 

As a spectator, we encourage you to bring your own lawn chairs. We anticipate very limited bleacher seating at home and away contests. There may be some venues where the bleachers are completely off limits. Many places will be extending their dugouts outside the fence down the first and third base sides all the way to the foul poles to allow teams to social distance the best they can. Some will likely be using bleachers to help with social distancing of the teams due to dugout sizes. 

We will expect, as a spectator, you will adhere to all but not limited to the following guidelines and regulations: 

  1. Spectators are encouraged to wear masks although this won’t be required.
  2. No concession stands are allowed to be open.
  3. Individual households are permitted to bring a cooler into the ballpark seating area; coolers
    are subject to search.
  4. No one should attend if they are: 
    1. Feeling sick
    2. Have a sick family member at home
    3. Your temperature is 100.4 or higher

2. No one should attend if they are experiencing any or a combination of the most common 

symptoms of COVID-19 such as: 

  1. Fever (100.4 or higher) or chills
  2. Cough
  3. Loss of taste
  4. Shortness of breath
  5. Headache or muscle/body aches
  6. Fatigue
  7. Sore throat
  8. 1. No sunflower seeds.
  9. 2. No spitting.
  10. 3. Practice social distancing (6’ apart) with everyone that is not in your family. This is expected in the bleachers, in lawn chairs or standing along the fence
  11. 4. Admissions: 
  1. Many places will not be taking admission.
  2. Some will be asking for free will donations to cover costs of umpires, etc.
  3. Some places will charge as usual.

We encourage everyone to bring their own hand sanitizer and use it often. Do not chase and/or retrieve foul balls or home runs. 

As a spectator, you will have to decide for yourself if attending high school baseball and softball games is right for you and your family. 

We will rely on everyone doing their part in order to have a successful, safe, and healthy summer sports' season. We all are counting on each other to do our part. This is still a very fluid situation. 

Please visit the IGHSAU and the IHSAA websites for more information. Thank you for your attention, cooperation and positive approach to the baseball and softball season. We are cautiously excited for our athletes and coaches to have a summer season 

Just a reminder:  We will be continuing with Silver Cord.  The purpose of this program is to instill within students the important role that community service and volunteering has in a successful community and to enhance student’s learning through direct services.  The Silver Cord is a distinguished service award available to CGDHS students who earn at least 300 hours of community volunteer service from the start of their freshmen year through May 1 of their graduating year.  The student will be recognized of this achievement by receiving a silver cord to wear at graduation.  Lots more information may be obtained by calling the high school office.  Due to the early dismissal of school and students not able to pick up blank forms for documenting summer service please write down the activity performed, the name of the coordinator at the service site and the amount of hours worked and turn into the high school office by September 1st.  Paperwork is being mailed to incoming freshmen.

 

Students that did not checkout be assured that all bags and items are safe and will be here for you to pickup next fall.  Please take care of your computer and charger at home.  Remember it belongs to the school.  It will need to be checked next fall also prior to school beginning.  It is your responsibility.

Last day for school lunch will be Thursday, June 25th!!

ATTENTION SENIORS 2020-2021:

All students entering 12th grade and born after September 15, 1999, will need proof of 2 doses of the meningococcal vaccine (1 dose received on or after 16 years of age); OR 1 dose if received when the student was 16 years of age or older.

Seniors will be required to have proof of vaccinations PRIOR to starting their Senior year by Iowa's mandate.  This can be done at your primary physician's office or Wright County Public Health in Clarion (532-3461).  Please contact Erin Halverson R.N. if you have any questions: 515-293-0499 or ehalverson@clargold.org.  

* I am able to access a State of Iowa database to retrieve the document after the vaccine is given so you will not need to bring anything to the High School.   

Students entering 7th grade (if born after September 15, 2004) – 1 dose of meningococcal vaccine received on or after age of 10 – a booster dose will be needed at age 16. Students entering 12th grade (if born after September 15, 1999) – 1 dose of meningococcal vaccine at 16 years of age or older.

Incoming FRESHMEN - The state of Iowa requires that all 9th-grade students have a dental exam.   If you are seen for your exam over the summer, please ask your dentist or dental hygienist to fill out an exam form and return it to the Clarion-Goldfield-Dows High School office.  Fax: 515-532-2897 or to Erin Halverson: ehalverson@clargold.org

(Iowa Dental offices have this form and are aware of the mandate).

Seniors and Senior Parents:  a questionnaire was sent late Tuesday afternoon asking for you to complete and submit back to the school so we can get set up for the big day on the football field.  Any questions please contact the office.

Graduation 2020 will be held on Saturday, June 27th, at the football field starting at 6:00 p.m.  Rain date Sunday, June 28th.   There will be a practice but no day or time as of yet.

Driver’s Education Class:  Please make your final payment.  Dr. Ed. students:  When you are done driving for class, I will upload your information to the Iowa DOT & Wright County Courthouse.  If you are eligible for a school permit, first you contact the District Office 515-532-3423 to make an appointment to meet with the Superintendent and then you will need to also make an appointment at the courthouse.  Remember, you must live a mile away from the school and with this permit you may only drive from home to school events and back.  You are not able to pick up other students.  We do have some students that have not made their final payment.  This must be done before the info is updated.  Any questions, call the high school office.
