As COVID-19 safety measures continue, we will update this web page regularly. Email will remain our primary means of communication with Phelps students and families. If our plans must change in light of new circumstances and guidance from health departments and governmental agencies, we will do all we can to keep our school community informed.

Phelps is a small community by design. With our small classes sizes we are able to come together, while staying apart! We have taken every precaution to ensure the safety of our students and faculty. We will have all desks six feet apart, and hand sanitizer in every room. All rooms will be cleaned per CDC recommendations.
Guidelines for Visiting Campus
If any member of your household has flu-like symptoms – respiratory problems, persistent cough, or a fever of 100.4°F (38°C) or greater:
Have the sick person tested promptly for influenza and other possible causes.
No one in the household should come to campus until 14 days after the patient has been fever-free without medication for 24 hours.
However, if testing rules out COVID-19, others in the household may come to campus. (The patient may come to campus when fever-free without medication for 24 hours.)
