  • Return to Learn Update

    IKM-Manning has submitted their Return to Learn Plan to the Iowa Department of Education. As required, the plan consists of three different scenarios: students learning at school, students doing distance learning, and a hybrid of the two. There was a team of IKM-Manning staff, parents, school board members, administrators, and healthcare professionals who worked together to create this plan.

    The team was organized into the following subcommittees: Leadership, Infrastructure, Health & Safety, Iowa Academic Standards, Social-Emotional-Behavioral Health, Equity, and Data. Some team members served on more than one subcommittee.

    A summary of the Return to Learn Plan will be provided to parents and stakeholders in the near future, as well as a chance for questions to be posed and answered. There will be more to come on this. The plan for now revolves around how IKM-Manning will operate and collect data in the three scenarios and is not a specific checklist that shows exact details on what each model will look like.  

    IKM-Manning will be updating families with any pertinent information as it becomes available. We, as much as anyone, desire a return to traditional face-to-face instruction at school in the fall. In the next couple weeks, we will be receiving guidance from the Iowa Department of Education, Audubon, Carroll, Crawford, and Shelby Counties Public Health regarding what face-to-face instruction may look like.  

    Please remember our teachers, staff, and administration are all new to this and are doing the best we can as we navigate decisions and find the balance between returning to normal and implementing new practices that will keep everyone healthy. Regardless of whatever learning models are implemented throughout the upcoming school year, we will keep the health and safety of our students and families a priority.

    Guidelines for Attending Baseball/Softball Games

    Our first games are scheduled for June 15. As we prepare and distribute information to our athletes, coaches, spectators, and other game management personnel, we ask for your patience and understanding. Our goal is to provide a safe environment for our athletes, coaches, umpires, and fans.

    We believe Iowa will be the first state in the country to resume competitive high school sports this summer. The entire country will be watching Iowa. Therefore, it is imperative that we successfully navigate competitive team sports during the pandemic. If we are not successful, it could mean we miss out on fall and/or winter sports later this year.

    We must be adaptable to the COVID-19 mitigation strategies schools have implemented. Some schools may ban the use of bleachers, some may require exact change when paying admission, and some may require players’ and spectators’ temperature to be taken before entering their complex. There may be other strategies not mentioned as well. We are committed to communicating these with other schools in advance, so you are aware before traveling. Here are the guidelines our conference, the WIC, has worked out so far:


    Regardless of the requirement, we ask that we all remain respectful and compliant when we visit area schools. The school administrators who are developing these strategies are doing their best and working hard to create a safer and healthier environment for all. In some cases, they may be doing what their local county health department requires.

    We are fortunate to have an opportunity to play baseball and softball this summer, and our fans are fortunate to be able to attend. Let’s show the rest of the world that this can be done safely and that we can be respectful to our neighboring schools when visiting them. We look forward to playing ball this summer!! Thanks!

    Congratulations 2020 Retirees

    This school year certainly didn't go as planned for many, including this year's IKM-Manning's retirees. In addition to many milestones, last week would have been their "official" final week of service for the students and families of IKM-Manning.


    In the absence of the traditional retiree celebration (for now), we would ask you to please join us in a special tribute and THANK YOU to the dedication and years of service from these outstanding colleagues. Please like and provide a brief comment for our retiring class of 2020. 


    Overall, a heartfelt thank you for everything to Kathy Lage, Deb Musfeldt, Karli North, Kevin McConnell, and Anna Schwarte!
