It will include recap of the Governor’s latest executive order, office hours, food services, and recap our plan previously released this week for next week. Thank you all for being so accommodating and knowing we have the hearts of your children, our students, in mind. We will get through these stressful times stronger than ever before!

Since the Governor’s announcement on Sunday night that K-12 schools would be closed, our teachers have been working vigorously to get ready for what many feared was coming.  In an effort for families and staff to prepare , we believe it’s best to move forward with this plan.  Therefore, we will begin our blend of learning alternatives on Monday, March 23rd.  Specific classroom questions can be communicated later this week to your child’s classroom teacher.  Please email nick.klemisch@k12.nd.us with discussion points you may have and I will put together an FAQ to answer those questions the best we can. Deployment of materials and tech devices will go out as planned tomorrow. All staff will continue to report as we have done this week.  PS we still do not have updates on spring activities, prom, and graduation. Our hope is the curve will flatten soon and we will back to normal.  Thank you for bearing with us as we enter uncharted educational territory.

This is Mrs. Fuller. The following message is for students and parents in grades K-6. In the midst of the coronavirus, we have been trying to prepare for school next week and beyond with so much unknown. We are hoping to be back at school next week but are planning in case we need to continue to quarantine ourselves. Our teachers have been working and preparing to continue education through an online platform in case we remain out of school. We will also be using some online tools to interact with our students throughout home-based learning times. We ask that parents of K-6 students come and get educational materials quickly on Thursday with the following schedule. You will need to use the North East Gym door, and we will only allow ten people in the gym at a time. Bring bags for your children’s items as we are sending Chromebooks (grades 3-6) as well as other curricular materials to use for school-at-home learning time. Our teachers are working on lessons and custodial staff are busy disinfecting our school. Here are the groups and times for material pickup: Parents of students with the last name beginning: A-B can come on Thursday from 10–10:20, C-D 10:20-10:40, E-F 10:40-11:00, G-H 11-11:20, I-J 11:20-11:40, K 11:40-12:00, L-M 12:00-12:20. N-O-P 12:20-12:40, R-S 12:40-1:00, T 1:00-1:20, U-V-W-X-Y-Z 1:40-2:00. If you have students with multiple last names, please find your children’s materials with your oldest child’s last name. Please try to stick to your time as much as possible. If you have only a preschool-aged child, there is no need to come pick up materials at this time. If you wish to return library materials at this time, you may bring them. Thank you for your help and cooperation in getting students materials to help them in continuing to learn as we battle COVID-19. We look forward to time when we can be back in school learning together with our students and staff in the future.

Good afternoon, this is Steve Dangel, Principal at Garrison High School. The following message pertains to students and parents in grades 7-12. In the midst of the coronavirus, we have been trying to prepare for school next week and beyond. We are hoping to be back at school next week but are planning that Gov Borgum or President Trump and the CDC will want us to continue to quarantine ourselves. If we are not at school, our teachers have been working and preparing to continue education through an online platform. One of our concerns is the lack of resources by our students, for example they don’t have chrome books or textbooks because they are here at the school. To help remedy this situation, I have broken our students down into groups of 10. We ask that students come and get their needed material quickly on Thursday or Friday. Our teachers are working on lessons and custodial staff are busy disinfecting classrooms, hallways, lockers, doors, and door knobs. I would like to thank you for all your assistance and flexibility while we overcome the coronavirus. Here are the groups and times for material pickup, please keep siblings grouped together, there is no need to come in at different times: Students with the last name Aasand — Bendickson can come on Thursday from 9–9:30, Betz — Davidson 10-10:30, Diffley — Franklin 11-11:30, Fuller — Hernandez 12-12:30, Hett — Huesers 1-1:30, Hummel — Jochiem 2-2:30, and Johnson — Kinden 3-3:30. Starting on Friday from 9-9:30 Kittel — Kolden, Kidman — Marsch 10-10:30, Mautz — Meyers 11-11:30, Nelson — Perkins 12-12:30, Phelps — Sand 1-1:30, Sanders — Schlehr 2-2:20, Schmitcke — Souza 2:30-2:50, Stehr — Vetterman 3-3:20, and Westman — Zook 3:30-4. I again want to thank you for your patience and look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Dr. K. here once again.... With the announcement from the NDHSAA and further announcements by the ND Dept. of Health, Governor’s Office, and The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction we have decided to not allow any outside activities use of our facilities until further notice.  School will be on as planned, but we are suspending all active groups from using our facilities. Additionally, Science Olympiad Monday, HS concert Tuesday, career fair Wednesday, and doughnuts with grownups are all cancelled this week. Please contact the school if you have any questions, comments, and concerns. I will continue to provide updates to you as this progresses.

We are continuing to  monitor the advice of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) and the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction (NDDPI) regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in our area. We are aware that this is a rapidly evolving situation and will continue to monitor those events happening in our state and region.  The school has not received any recommendation or mandate from any organization as of now to close our school system. The district is working to address possible options in the event we are forced to close.  We are looking at providing some online lessons, reading and math supplements, etc...  in the event that our area would arrive at a situation where we would need to cancel regular school activities or in the event of a full quarantine. At this time we do not have plans to change our course of action or cancel any extra-curricular activities. Those families who do not have devices or internet connectivity at home are encouraged to contact the school to allow us to make individual contingency plans in the event we we close. Should the situation change patrons will be updated via social media and our instant alert system. We will continue to monitor the recommendations of the NDDPI, CDC and the NDDoH.

In light of all the sickness going around, please take this long spring break weekend to recoup. If your child has any signs of sickness, please keep them home. Two of my children both tested positive for influenza A and their symptoms were like that of a common cold. Our schools will be disinfected over the weekend. Regarding the Coronavirus, we will continue to monitor this as well and will defer to the guidance we receive from the state. At this time, we are not planning on closing for an extended period of time unless we are directed to do so.
