COVID UPDATE

As of November 9, 2021, masks will be recommended but not required per Quitman School District School Board. As long as positive covid cases remain less than 5% of the total student enrollment and district employment, masks will be optional and highly recommended. If covid cases increase to 5% or above, masks will immediately be mandated for at least 14 calendar days for QSD. The numbers and cases will be monitored closely. After the 14 day period AND when the percent rate drops below 5%, the mandate will be removed and mask usage will then return to optional. This is subject to change at any time based on data.

As of November 1, 2021, our Covid numbers continue to decline. We have 0 students positive and 0 staff members positive with Covid. Thank you for taking Covid seriously.  Please continue to encourage your children to wash their hands regularly, wear a mask, and social distance. Thank you for your support for our students, teachers, and staff!

Students at QUE are studying shape as an element of art. Art teacher LaToya Madison says learning how to spot the shapes in everyday objects around them inspired the fall drawings and pumpkin shading projects. 3rd grade classes used two or more colors when blending with colored pencils. 4th and 5th grade classes used different techniques of shading pumpkins.

Be on the lookout for hand-painted rocks with kind messages around Quitman! SWAT has been inspiring kindness since 2017 with the Kindness Rocks Project. This nationwide community service project spreads the message of kindness. If you find a kindness rock, you may move the rock to another location. If the rock touches your heart with its written message, you may keep it.  Join the Kindness Rocks Project by painting and hiding your own rock. SWAT students hope you have fun finding the rocks and spreading kindness in Quitman!
