Graettinger-Terril COVID-19 Informational Dashboard
In an effort to better inform our community of COVID-19 related illness in our school system, Graettinger-Terril Community School District has created this page to share as much information as possible while protecting the privacy of those affected.
We will continue to keep you informed and be as transparent as possible within the legal guidelines stipulated by the State of Iowa.
The Iowa Department of Public Health, the Iowa Department of Public Education, and the Iowa Department of Justice changed the details on how public entities such as schools should disclose information about positive cases of COVID-19 to the public. Link to Guidelines
Information regarding COVID at Graettinger-Terril CSD will be updated on Fridays
