Perry Community School District Superintendent Clark Wicks announced Friday that five persons tested positive for COVID-19 between Nov. 20 and Dec. 5 in the school district.

  • Perry Elementary School — 2 cases
  • Perry Middle School — 1 case
  • Perry High School — 2 cases

The Perry School Board’s Return to Learn Plan currently includes full-day, face-to-face instruction with no in-school testing, no contact tracing, no quarantining and no mask recommendation. The plan conforms to guidance issued by the Iowa Department of Public Health in August.

The current population of students and staff in the Perry Community School District numbers about 1,800. Some 60 students and 20 staff members tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus during the 2020-2021 school year in Perry.
