Attention Ogema Families: A reminder to use the designated student drop off area in the morning when dropping off your child. We have had congestion issues in the bus lane causing safety concerns. Ogema Drop Off Procedure: Drive to the upper parking lot, and then turn to the lower parking lot by the garage/dumpsters on the northwest side of the school. There are designated areas for drive through, drop off and parking near the main doors. Students should exit on the passenger side of the vehicle and use the sidewalk to walk into/out of the main entrance of the building. Do NOT park in front of the school when dropping off as that is where the bus lane is. Our buses have a staggered schedule and we need the bus lane open between 7:45-8:30 daily. Thank you for your help in keeping our students safe as they arrive at school!

We have worked with MDH and local public health to identify those who were in close contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19, and no close contacts have been identified in our school community. If you have not been contacted, your child is not considered a close contact, and there is nothing special you need to do. Because the spread of COVID-19 from unknown sources is widespread in Minnesota, you should continue to watch your child for COVID-19 symptoms, which include: Fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher New cough or a cough that gets worse Difficulty/hard time breathing New loss of taste or smell Sore throat New nasal congestion/stuffy or runny nose Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea Muscle pain Extreme fatigue/feeling very tired New severe/very bad headache Chills If your child gets symptoms, they should stay home and you should talk with their doctor or other health care provider to decide if they need to see a doctor and/or to get tested for COVID-19. Please review the following resources: Home Screening Tool for COVID-19 Symptoms (PDF) (https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/schools/homescreen.pdf) COVID-19 Attendance Guide for Parents and Families (PDF) (https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/schools/attendance.pdf) We understand that this news may make people feel uneasy.

We are asking all members of our community to lower the chance of spreading illness by taking the following actions: Protect yourself and others by wearing a face covering. Wash your hands often with soap and water. Cover your coughs and sneezes; do not touch your face with unwashed hands. If you are sick, stay home from school, child care, sports, and other activities.

Jaelyn was chosen as Student of the Month. Her teacher, Mrs. Oertwich says, “I chose Jaelyn as my student of the month for December. Jaelyn is responsible, gets her work done as soon as possible, and asks for help when needed. She often asks for extra work and wanted work to do over Christmas break. Jaelyn approaches everything with a positive attitude and prides herself on her work. Not only does Jaelyn do her best and challenge herself academically, she consistently displays empathy to her classmates when they need extra academic support and encourages them when they are down. Keep being a great leader, Jaelyn.” Jaelyn is most thankful for fishing with her family: Daddy, Mommy, Dustin, Erin, Jordan, Kimber, and Kase. She said Dustin catches the biggest fish and she catches the smallest fish. Jaelyn’s favorite part of school is playing hide and seek at recess with her friends. She also loves riding on the scooter in gym class. Jaelyn loves to play Subway Surfers on her iPad and likes to play dolls at home. Jaelyn can do cartwheels, somersaults, swing on the bar, walk on the balance beam, and the splits at gymnastics class! Wow! Jaelyn you are amazing!!! We love you at Ogema Elementary!

General notification for families that a person in the school/child care/youth program community tested positive for COVID-19 Waubun-Ogema-White Earth Public School Saturday, December 19, 2020 Dear Families, We were notified by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) that a member of the Waubun-Ogema- White Earth Public School community has tested positive for COVID-19. It is possible the person was able to spread the disease while in the community on this/these date(s) 12/16. We cannot for privacy reasons share details about the person. At this time, they have been told to stay home and away from other people (in isolation) until they are well and can no longer spread the disease. We have worked with MDH to identify those who were in close contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19 and has told them directly to stay home and/or to work from home for 7-14 days, even if they have a negative COVID-19 test during that time. This is how long it can take to show signs of the disease. If you have not been contacted, your child is not considered a close contact, and there is nothing special you need to do. Because the spread of COVID-19 from unknown sources is widespread in Minnesota, you should continue to watch your child for COVID-19 symptoms, which include: Fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher New cough or a cough that gets worse Difficulty/hard time breathing New loss of taste or smell Sore throat New nasal congestion/stuffy or runny nose Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea Muscle pain Extreme fatigue/feeling very tired New severe/very bad headache Chills If your child gets symptoms, they should stay home and you should talk with their doctor or other health care provider to decide if they need to see a doctor and/or to get tested for COVID-19. Please review the following resources: Home Screening Tool for COVID-19 Symptoms (PDF) (https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/schools/homescreen.pdf) COVID-19 Attendance Guide for Parents and Families (PDF) (https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/schools/attendance.pdf) We understand that this news may make people feel uneasy. We have taken action to clean and sanitize the building and are working closely with MDH to watch the situation. We are asking all members of our community to lower the chance of spreading illness by taking the following actions: Protect yourself and others by wearing a face covering. Wash your hands often with soap and water. Cover your coughs and sneezes; do not touch your face with unwashed hands. If you are sick, stay home from school, child care, sports, and other activities. Clean all commonly touched surfaces often, such as telephones, doorknobs, countertops, etc. Resources that you may find helpful: MDH Coronavirus Disease 2019 (https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/index.html) MDH Schools and Child Care: COVID-19 (https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/schools/index.html) CDC Coronavirus (COVID-19) (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) If you have questions, contact Carolyn Cossette, School Nurse or Lisa Weber, Superintendent at 218-473-6171.

Dear Waubun Ogema White Earth Schools Community, We are very excited to announce our learning plan changes that we will be implementing in the 3rd quarter. We originally were going to bring our students EC-12 back to Hybrid Learning, but since Governor Walz had a press conference on December 16th in which he prioritized in person learning for our youngest students, we need to make changes to our planning. To continue reading the safe learning plan please follow this link. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FNmMdUtglVexKdL4VfQ2gscdmOmDR9q6ET9E27aDNEM/edit?usp=sharing

Hello Everyone, and Happy Holidays Here is an update on our Learning model!
about 1 month ago, Britani Ferencik
Tammy Brehm
Dear Waubun-Ogema-White Earth Families, Happy Holidays! I hope this finds you in good spirits and in good health. I have included some end of month data, current data, and a couple of topic updates today. If you have any questions please contact me. COVID-19 update for the Month of November: Staff: We had 65 staff out for COVID related reasons: 5 positive cases, 36 close contacts, 14 were out for testing for two or more symptoms, 2 were family-related, and 8 were related to childcare/daycare positive cases. Students: We had 81 students impacted: 60 close contacts and 21 positive cases. Overall update: We have no significant school spread. We had a small spread in an after school activity, but not during the school day. Our primary issue continues to be staffing and growing county and tribal numbers. Our student positives are happening mostly within family groups. We did send home a grade level tier one child care classroom along with the impacted staff. We did that because they were in close contact with one positive case, not because they were all positive cases. Local health officials have shared that they are starting to see more children test positive and transmit COVID-19 to their families and other children and adults. Some are asymptomatic and are not aware they even have it. So please continue to reinforce all of the safety protocols for yourself and your children to keep everyone safe. CDC guidelines: The Minnesota Department of Health came out with updated guidelines following the CDC’s lead. It states that 14 days is still the best practice but it does allow 10 days and in some cases 7 days for quarantine in specific circumstances. They are developing more specific guidance materials and visuals for us, but this change may help with our staffing issues and attendance. However, this will only be effective if we use all the other safety protocols such as social distancing, hand washing, sanitizing, and limiting our interactions with others at school or work, along with the shortened quarantines. https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/quarguide.pdf Also, we, as a school and community, need to be careful who we are interacting with outside of our work and home. Who is in your “bubble”? If they are not, use the precautions listed above. Video chats may not be the best, but they may be the best for now. Meal plan changes: We have sent numerous messages out about the meal plan change that went into effect this week. The meals are free to everyone that signs up, but we still need you to complete the Free and reduced lunch application. It helps the District with funding that gives resources to our neediest learners and is used for many other areas to determine financial needs for each individual student such as scholarships and waived or reduced fees. Even if you were already receiving meals this year, you will need to re-register, because we added a home delivery option and changed a couple of the pickup options. Make sure to sign up by Thursday at 3:30 to start meals the following week. Otherwise, you need to wait until the following week to start services. If you have any questions call the District office at 218-473-6171. Follow this link to register: Meal registration Complete free and reduced lunch form here: F&R Lunch application Case per 10,000 County/Tribe 11/8-11/21 11/15-11/28 Mahnomen County: 203 200 Becker County: 235.99 189.5 White Earth: 266.54 242.60 Sources: Mahnomen and Becker county public health and White Earth public health 12/4/20 *preliminary counts not finalized yet. Stay Safe and Keep Learning! Sincerely, Lisa Weber, Superintendent lisaw@waubun.k12.mn.us 218-850-7844

Colt was selected November Student of the Month. His teacher, Mrs. Oertwich says, “Colt always goes above and beyond what is expected of him at school and at home during distance learning. On his distance learning days, he is up and working on his schoolwork at 7 am. He shows up to every single live Google Meet and would answer every single question if we let him. He is eager and ready to learn every day! Colt is quite the character and has a great sense of humor. He likes to joke with his classmates and teachers. Colt often gives his friends and teachers reasons to laugh and smile. He is so social and loves to visit with everyone.

Dear Families, Students, and Staff, We were notified by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) of a lab of a confirmed case of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) in a member of the Waubun school community with no exposure in our school community. For privacy reasons, we cannot share details about the status of the individual. At this time, they have each been advised to stay home and away from other people (isolate). We have worked with the MDH to identify those who had close contact with the case, and have communicated with them individually. The risk of exposure for other individuals present in the building on that date is no greater than the risk of contracting the virus in the general community. If you were not identified to have close contact with the positive case you should still monitor for symptoms of illness, but do not need to stay home unless symptoms develop. If symptoms develop, stay home and consult with your physician to determine if medical evaluation is needed. We are working closely with MDH to monitor the situation. If you have questions, contact Carolyn Cossette, School Nurse or Lisa Weber, Superintendent at 218-473-6171. Thank you for helping to keep our school community safe. COVID-19 Resources If You Are Sick: COVID-19 (www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/sick.html) Coronavirus (COVID-19) (www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) Sincerely, Lisa Weber, Superintendent Waubun-Ogema-White Earth Schools

Waubun Distance Learning Plan Purpose: The purpose of distance learning is to provide meaningful, equitable learning with an alternative delivery method for all students during the COVID-19 outbreak. This plan may be adjusted to meet future distance learning needs as needed. Attendance Students are expected to attend google meet sessions and work on school work daily. This will involve synchronous (direct instruction with real time learning) and asynchronous work (learning activities that can be completed and learned independently). Much like the traditional setting, attendance is required and will be monitored. Students and parents/guardians are still under the compulsory attendance rules. (Please see chart) Example: A student may need to be online to receive math instruction from 9:00-9:45 each day. There may also be a social studies project that is to be completed on the student’s own time over the course of several weeks. Teachers will track student attendance daily. Attendance will be tracked through student interaction including but not limited to attendance at required class meetings, phone call, text message, email correspondence, logging into various platforms, or completed assignments/work packets. It is vitally important that parents/guardians know the attendance requirement for their students.Students for whom no teacher has direct interaction on a given day are reported as absent for that day.Teachers will notify administration after documenting multiple attempts to contact student and parent, if students are not attending meetings, completing work, or daily check ins. 3. .Teacher Expectations Teachers will be in attendance at school. Teachers are expected to be online in a synchronous format with students daily. Teachers will instruct and be available to students on Google Meet daily. At the secondary level that will mean hosting a Google Meet for each hour of the day, every day. At the elementary level, that will mean teaching literacy and math, both whole and small group, daily. Secondary teachers will be engaged with students in a synchronous format minimally 25 minutes of each hour. Teachers would be expected to respond to student emails and communicate as needed with students and families. Teachers will utilize Google Classroom and SeeSaw as our primary platforms for instruction. Teachers will update gradebooks weekly. Teachers will update attendance records daily. Teachers will make attempts to communicate with students and families regarding student performance. This will include emailing the student, emailing the parent, making phone calls to all numbers available for the family, referring the student to administration after the other options are attempted. Teachers will document contact attempts to students and families in Synergy. Teachers will work from their classrooms in the school daily. Students will utilize the intervention team and help line for additional help and services if their students or families are struggling. Notify administration about internet and device challenges your students and families are having. Teachers will follow PPE, Social Distancing guidelines, and Cleaning Protocols as outlined in the COVID-19 Operational Manual for All Staff. 4. Student Expectations a. Students will attend class meetings daily (attendance will be taken). Students must log in within the first ten minutes of class. b. Students will complete course work in a timely manner. Coursework is expected and will be tied to achievement. If students do not participate or pass their coursework, it may lead to retention, summer school or credit recovery. Students will reach out for assistance if needed. Call Ogema Elementary 218-473-6171 Waubun Elementary and Waubun Secondary 218-473-6173 to talk to support staff, administration, or to be transferred to teachers. You may also email teachers. Students will keep the time from 8:10-3:20 available for school, as they would if school were physically in session. Students will reach out to and support classmates who are struggling with distance learning on their home learning days. Students will utilize the intervention team and help line for additional help and services if they or their families are struggling. Students will expect to work for this amount of time on remote learning days: Elementary: At least 1-2 hours per day. Secondary: At least 25 minutes per class. If Students are required to be on school campus for any purpose, they will be required to follow PPE, Social Distancing guidelines, and Cleaning Protocols as outlined in the Reopening guidelines. 5. Parent Expectations Parents will help students prioritize their time. Parents will encourage students to meet expectations. Parents will communicate concerns to teachers, support staff, and administration. Parents will utilize the intervention team and help line for additional help and services if they or their students are struggling. If Parents are required to be on school campus for any purpose, they will be required to follow PPE, Social Distancing guidelines, and Cleaning Protocols as outlined in the Reopening guidelines. 6. Administration Expectations Administrators will work with families without internet access to help them obtain access or to help the teachers make internet accommodations. Administration will work with families so each student is able to be assigned a chromebook if they need a device. Administrators will contact families who are not participating, after teachers and the intervention team have documented the required attempts. Administrators will host weekly check-ins with teacher groups. Administrators will provide support to staff, students, and parents as needed. Administrators will work with parents and Community resources to try and resolve family challenges creating barriers to education and learning. 7. Resources The district technology and instructional team has prepared a number of excellent videos explaining to parents and students how to access various components of distance learning which are available via the school webpage and to teachers via a Google Classroom created to support distance learning. Please utilize these resources, they are created for you! Also call our Day time hours: 8:30-5:00 HELP LINE 218-473-6196 ext.196 and Evening hours-6:00-8:00 HELP LINE 775-338-3870 .

Distance Learning parents will have a choice to sign up for a 5 day meal pick up if you have not already or home delivery. (Hybrid parents who were on a 3 day plan were moved to a 5 day plan.) Please see the following drop site options. They may change based on family sign up and participation: Waubun and Ogema school,and White Earth Community Center, Elbow Lake Catholic Church, Berry’s, and Hilltop.

Dalton was chosen as October Student of the Month. His teacher, Mrs. Brininger says, “I chose Dalton as student of the month because he is a ray of sunshine in our distance learning class! He is always excited to join our google meets, he has a positive attitude toward everything, he participates in our activities, (especially the songs), and he completes all of his work on time! He has a kind heart and loves giving people compliments. Way to go, Dalton!” Dalton is most thankful for giving people the pictures he draws. He draws hearts and “Bendy the Ink Machine” to give to his family and friends. His favorite part of school is letter tracing because he loves the letters. Right now he is learning the letter “I”. Dalton has lots of interesting facts about himself. He loves the color black so he can draw his favorite video game. His favorite costume is Bendy and the Ink Machine. He loves Transformers, especially Optimus Prime! Dalton, you are so appreciated at Ogema Elementary. Keep up the good work!!

Dear Families, Students, and Staff, We were notified by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) of a lab of a confirmed case of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) in a member of the Waubun school community with no exposure in our school community. For privacy reasons, we cannot share details about the status of the individual. At this time, they have each been advised to stay home and away from other people (isolate). We have worked with the MDH to identify those who had close contact with the case, and have communicated with them individually. The risk of exposure for other individuals present in the building on that date is no greater than the risk of contracting the virus in the general community. If you were not identified to have close contact with the positive case you should still monitor for symptoms of illness, but do not need to stay home unless symptoms develop. If symptoms develop, stay home and consult with your physician to determine if medical evaluation is needed. We are working closely with MDH to monitor the situation. If you have questions, contact Carolyn Cossette, School Nurse or Lisa Weber, Superintendent at 218-473-6171. Thank you for helping to keep our school community safe.

We have worked with the MDH to identify those who had close contact with the case, and have communicated with them individually. The risk of exposure for other individuals present in the building on that date is no greater than the risk of contracting the virus in the general community. If you were not identified to have close contact with the positive case you should still monitor for symptoms of illness, but do not need to stay home unless symptoms develop.

Thunderbird Student Spotlight! Ben was chosen as October Student of the Month in Kindergarten. His teacher, Mrs. Erickson says, “I chose Ben as Student of the Month because he always strives to do his best in school, wherever he is. He shows respect by raising his hand and using his manners, and is a great leader by walking quietly in the halls. He is also a good friend to all, always making his friends giggle and laugh. Congratulations, Ben! ” Ben is most thankful for his mom because she makes good dinners. His favorite is meatballs! Ben’s favorite part of school is gym class where he loves to run, skip, and play freeze tag. Fun facts about Ben: He hunts with his dad. According to him, they get really big deer!! Ben can also do a handstand on a trampoline. Ben, you are amazing!! Keep up the good work!

Tomorrow will be a Distance Learning day (like a Friday). This will require attendance check-ins. The Board will be revisiting the Learning Model Shift to Distance Learning at the Wednesday, November 4th, Special Board meeting at 6:00 pm. That will determine our school model for the remainder of the week and next week. There will be tier 1 childcare tomorrow. I apologize for the last-minute change, but if we as a District are undecided about changing our model, we cannot use tomorrow or the rest of the week as planning days. Information regarding our model and schedule will be sent out immediately following the school board meeting. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Dear Waubun-Ogema-White-Earth Learning Community, Good afternoon, the time has come to transition to Distance Learning. We did not have enough substitute staff to cover our absences again today. This issue is “snowballing” for us. We cannot implement a learning model without the staff to run it. I know this is going to be a challenge for many of our families. We really have tried every option we could to keep students on site. We all agree this is where they learn best. COVID-19 and the issues it creates continues to create significant challenges. We have been struggling with staffing for a few weeks, but the last two weeks have been extremely difficult. There are many requirements around testing and close contact tracing intended to prevent the spread of the virus. We are following those protocols or requirements to protect our students and staff. In doing so, we are running into staffing and student attendance issues. As a results, we will need to make the shift to the Distance Learning Model for the following reasons: 1. We do not have the staff to implement the Hybrid model. First contact/Close Contact create 14 day leaves that we do not have sufficient staffing to cover for their absence. Increase of positive cases in the school are creating 14 day leaves that are impossible for us to fill. An increase of “two or more symptoms” is causing many staff to miss 3-5 days waiting for testing to return. While this is fewer days, combined with the two issues above, this is becoming impossible to cover these leaves. 2. Mahnomen, Becker, and White Earth case Counts per 10,000 are continuing to rise and are well above the Distance Learning threshold. Our case counts are now, in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. 30-50 is Distance Learning for secondary and 50 and higher is Distance Learning for Pk-12. We are beginning to see an increase in positive cases in students. This increases risk to all. Please see the schedule below: Distance Learning will begin on Tuesday, November 10, 2020. Last days Of Hybrid Learning: Attendance required to get equipment and materials-Monday, November 2, 2020 and Tuesday, November 3, 2020. Planning Days for staff: No school for students, No Tier1 Child Care or Food service Wednesday- Friday, November 3-6, 2020 Teacher In-service November 9, 2020: No school for students, No Tier 1 Child Care or Food Service Distance Learning starts: Tuesday, November 10, 2020: Tier 1 Child Care resumes. Thursday, November 12 and 17, Fall Conferences: via phone or Google meets Return to Hybrid Plan: We will be consider the following the indicators for the return to Hybrid: 1. Stabilized staff. Staff will be working on site. We will monitor the positive cases, testing, and first contact/close contact tracing. When staff is stabilized it will be a strong indicator for a transition back to Hybrid Learning. 2. School positive cases. We will work with public health employees to monitor our school positive case counts to measure the risk level of return. We do not want to return, put children and staff at risk, and then have to return to distance learning again right away. We will monitor our school cases to indicate the level of risk for return. 3. We will continue to meet on a regular basis with our local health partners to review all relevant data and information to return as soon as we can have a safe and stable return to Hybrid and then transition to In-person as case counts and safety allows. We are constantly monitoring our data. If our staffing stabilizes before November 10th, we will stay in the Hybrid model and cancel the transition. We also will watch for the County and Tribal case counts. If they are trending in the hybrid scale range that will also be an indicator that pandemic spread will be decreasing in our area. We would look at staying Hybrid. If you have questions or concerns, please contact me at 218-473-6171 or 218-850-7844. Please see the attached Distance Learning Plan and the Safe Learning Plan posted on the District Website for more details. No matter what learning model we are in, let’s work together to make it the best learning possible. We will be working very hard on our planning days to make the best instructional strategies and plans possible. Sincerely, Lisa Weber, Superintendent District Administration Leadership Team Regional Health Team

Dear Families, Students, and Staff, We were notified by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) of lab confirmed cases of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) in 4 members of the Waubun school community. One member had no school contact exposure. The other three with exposure date(s) of October 13th, 14th, 15th, 19th, and 20th, 2020. We have worked with the MDH to identify those who had close contact with the case, and have communicated with them individually. The risk of exposure for other individuals present in the building on that date is no greater than the risk of contracting the virus in the general community. If you were not identified to have close contact with the positive case you should still monitor for symptoms of illness, but do not need to stay home unless symptoms develop. If symptoms develop, stay home and consult with your physician to determine if medical evaluation is needed. We understand that this may create unease in our community. We have taken action to clean and sanitize the facility and are working closely with MDH to monitor the situation. We are asking all members of our community to minimize the spread of illness by taking the following actions: Protect yourself and others by wearing a face covering when it is hard to stay 6 feet away from people; washing your hands often with soap and water; covering your cough and sneeze; and avoiding touching your face with unwashed hands. If you are sick, stay home from child care and other activities. Be prepared in case you get sick and need to stay home. Keep enough food, regular prescription drugs, and other necessities on hand in case you need to stay home and are not able to go out easily. Frequently clean all commonly touched surfaces (e.g., telephones, doorknobs, countertops, etc.). If symptoms develop, stay home and consult with your physician to determine if medical evaluation is needed. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, MDH recommends: Stay at home for at least 10 days, and for 24 hours with no fever and improvement of other symptoms (Your fever should be gone for 24 hours without using fever-reducing medicine). Use the CDC website on how to with COVID-19. If your household contacts were exposed to you while you had symptoms, they should try to stay home as much as possible for 14 days. This is a challenging time and I know many of you may be feeling stress or anxiety. We will get through this together as a community, and will be stronger when we emerge. Resources that you may find valuable are: MDH Coronavirus: MDH If You Are Sick: CDC Coronavirus: Sincerely, Lisa Weber, Superintendent Waubun-Ogema-White Earth Schools

Keep enough food, regular prescription drugs, and other necessities on hand in case you need to stay home and are not able to go out easily. • Frequently clean all commonly touched surfaces (e.g., telephones, doorknobs, countertops, etc.). If symptoms develop, stay home and consult with your physician to determine if medical evaluation is needed. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, MDH recommends: 1. Stay at home for at least 10 days, and for 3 days with no fever and improvement of other symptoms (Your fever should be gone for 3 days without using fever-reducing medicine). 2. Use the CDC website on how to Care for yourself at Home with COVID-19. 3. If your household contacts were exposed to you while you had symptoms, they should try to stay home as much as possible for 14 days. This is a challenging time and I know many of you may be feeling stress or anxiety. We will get through this together as a community, and will be stronger when we emerge. Resources that you may find valuable are: • MDH Coronavirus: https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/index.html • MDH If You Are Sick: https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/sick.html • CDC Coronavirus: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html Sincerely, Lisa Weber, Superintendent

Little Thunderbird Student Spotlight: Khloe was chosen as September Student of the Month. Mrs. Erickson, her kindergarten teacher, says, “I chose Khloe as Student of the Month because of the effort that she puts in each and every day to do her best. Showing respect by having a listening body, raising her hand to talk, and looking at the speaker are just a few of the ways that she does her best. She is also a very caring person and friend towards others. Way to go, Khloe!” Khloe says she feels most proud of herself when she walks nicely in the hallway, writes her name nice, and when she is learning how to read. Her favorite thing about school is when she goes home, singing songs, and reading. One fun fact about Khloe is she makes teddy bear cookies with eyes, ears, arms, and whiskers. Yummy!! Wonderful work, Khloe!! We love having you at Ogema Elementary!

Little Thunderbird Student Spotlight: Shaun was chosen as September student of the month. Mrs. Oertwich, Shaun’s 2nd grade teacher, says, “Shaun goes above and beyond every single day. He always has a positive attitude and encouragement to share. He greets everyone with a smile and hello.” Shaun says he is most proud of himself when he walks quietly in the hall, waits for other people, and studies hard. He likes gym the most about school because he can run and race his friends. Fun fact about Shaun: He can almost do a front flip if he practices a little more! He also gets his school work done really fast. Fantastic work, Shaun! You are a role model at Ogema Elementary!!

Hunger in America Millions of children and families living in America face hunger and food insecurity every day. Due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, more than 54 million people may experience food insecurity in 2020, including a potential 18 million children. According to the USDA's latest Household Food Insecurity in the United States report, more than 35 million people in the United States struggled with hunger in 2019. In 2018, 14.3 million American households were food insecure with limited or uncertain access to enough food. Households with children are more likely to experience food insecurity. Before the coronavirus pandemic, more than 10 million children live in food-insecure households. Every community in the country is home to families who struggle with food insecurity including rural and suburban communities. Many households that experience food insecurity do not qualify for federal nutrition programs and need to rely on their local food banks and other hunger relief organizations for support. If you are anyone you know that has children in the WOWE school district you feel would benefit from the BACKPACK Program please fill out the form and return to your school office.

Today the MSHSL approved the moving forward with a fall football season, which means that yes, we will have cheer! Yahoo! With that said there are some serious restrictions we will have to abide by. First and foremost - no stunting. I know that this disappoints you as much as it does us. Formations for cheer - six feet of separation in front of the stands and each other. Transportation becomes the biggest issue. There will be no transportation provided by either school to and from practices. And, we will be VERY limited to how many we can take to away games. With all of that said, we are excited to have this opportunity to cheer on our team and support our community. If you are interested in cheer this season, please contact Mrs. Pariso at michellep@waubun.k12.mn.us,or Miss Haverkamp at vhaverkamp@mahnomen.k12.mn.us

We are so excited to have our students back. We appreciate all that you are doing to help make this happen. It has been a challenging task for certain but well worth it. With that being stated, we are asking that there be no more changes to education plans after September 15th, 2020. If your student(s) is Hybrid Plan A, Hybrid Plan B or Distance Learning, we ask that they stay there until the end of the quarter (November 6th). The ongoing changes are having a negative impact on the education and services of other learners. There was a lot of coordination of efforts that occurred to make these plans happen. Thank you for working with us during these challenging times. We understand that there may be changes necessary due to COVID-19, we will deal with these individually.

FOOD SERVICE UPDATE Unlike last spring and into the summer, we will no longer be operating under the SFSP (Summer Food Service Program). USDA has mandated that we return to operating under the NSLP (National School Lunch Program)/SBP (School Breakfast Program) programs. These are the food distribution programs we would normally follow during a school year. The greatest change for our families in moving from SFSP to NSLP/SBP is meals are no longer free for every student. Only those families who fill out the “application for educational benefits” form and are income eligible, will receive free and/or reduced meals starting again this fall. We understand that many of our families continue to find themselves in precarious financial conditions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. For this reason, we strongly encourage everyone to fill out the application for educational benefits. The more qualified recipients of free and/or reduced meals, the more federal and state monies become available to our district in other areas as well as in our food service department. Meal prices as are as follows: Full breakfast price- Elementary $1.15, Secondary (7-12) $1.30; Reduced breakfast price-$0.00 Full lunch price- Elementary $2.40, Secondary (7-12) $2.50; Reduced lunch price-$0.00 All kindergarten students eat breakfast for free in Minnesota! You can fill out a paper application, or new this year is the online application option! If you are in need of a paper application they are available at both schools or you can call and request to have one mailed to you. https://www.lunchapplication.com/

We are very busy making plans for the three different learning options for the start of school. We believe that the best option is to start the 20-21 school year with in person learning and social distancing with increased cleaning protocols in place. We need a healthy and safe community with approval from MDE and MDH before we would be allowed to do that. In the meantime, we have district staff and a committee representing parents, students, staff, and every department working on plans for all three delivery models. Thank you to all the parents that already filled out the survey. For those of you that have not, please do! We need your help and input to develop the best plan we possibly can for each model. Depending on the directives we are given, we may not have a choice, but to move from one plan to another during the school year. We need to have feedback from your family for adequate planning. We eagerly anticipate Governor Walz’s recommendation on July 27th on how we are going to start the school year and from the Minnesota Department of Education for guidance on requirements.

Criminal Justice Reform youth essay video and audio contest The killing of George Floyd and the unrest that followed have created a long-delayed but urgently needed discussion on police brutality, inequities in the criminal justice system and racial injustice more broadly. The Minnesota Urban Debate League (MNUDL) and Star Tribune Opinion believe in the power of young minds and voices, and if you are between the ages of 10 and 18, we want your students' best ideas about how our communities can continue the hard work of responding to these problems. The MNUDL is a program of Augsburg University, which provides resources and programming to support competitive academic debate in Twin Cities high schools and middle schools. Its mission is to empower students through competitive academic debate to become engaged learners, critical thinkers and active global citizens who are effective advocates for themselves and their communities. The Contest The task is to create an original written essay, video or audio file that describes one or two specific changes our community, state or nation should make to reduce racial inequities and injustices in the criminal justice system. Top submissions, as determined by a group of judges from the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota, will be published in the Star Tribune and on StarTribune.com and shared with leaders across our state and nation. Your students' words could pass new laws, transform society, spark revolutions, change minds and hearts, or help heal our communities. https://www.startribune.com/criminal-justice-reform-youth-essay-video-and-audio-contest/571568061/

Congratulations and thank you to everyone who is working to make distance learning a success for our students! Everyone is working hard to adjust to their new roles and all of life's many changes. Please make sure this past week’s assignments are completed and returned in the student labeled portfolio by tomorrow, Thursday April 9th. Please remember that this work counts for grades and proves a student’s attendance by work completion. It is critical that this work exchange between student and teacher is happening for students to be successful. If there are problems, let's continue to work together to solve them. I am convinced we can overcome incredible challenges when we work together. Busses delivery and pickup & drop off times are from 11:00 am-1:00 pm.

So be ready to start learning, instructional packets are being dropped off on the lunch delivery bus route on Monday, March 30th between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm. Packets are also being picked up at each school site if those prior arrangements were made between 11:00 am-1:00 pm.

Waubun-Ogema-White Earth Weekly School News Update-3-19-20 Greetings! Greetings to the parents, students and community of WOWE. I hope you are all doing well! It has not even been a week and we already miss our students! But we sure do need the planning time. Trying to develop an effective Distance Learning plan to meet the needs of every learner at every grade level and every subject is a monumental task. I am confident in our staff to develop a great program and plan. Please know we are working hard for you. Superintendent Weber Education Assistance Program (Internet Service) Arvig announced they are offering an Education Assistance Program for families with a student in the K-12 system or for college students, to receive free internet service so their education can continue via e-learning methodologies in the event schools remain closed (or close again) as a result of COVID-19. People interested in learning more can contact the Arvig Customer Care team either online at arvig.com via online chat, or by calling 888.992.7844 and asking about the Arvig Education Assistance Program. The Customer Care Representative will walk them through the steps to determine if they qualify and if so, set them up for installation. https://www.arvig.net/education-assistance-program Lunch/Breakfast Program If you are interested in being added to our lunch program please call any school office. We will get you added to the list. You can choose a Grab & Go option at either the Ogema or Waubun sites or choose to have it delivered. (If you choose delivery it may have to wait until the next day for us to make arrangements.) Same day lunch and next day breakfast are being delivered/picked from 11:00am -1:00 pm. This program is under the summer food program. All learners qualify for this lunch program and do not need to pay. Talking with Children about the Coronavirus As the news stories and public conversations about Coronavirus increases, so does our anxiety. It is only natural that our children would also worry about themselves, their families, the people they love and care about. Talking about what is happening in an open and honest manner decreases anxiety and fear. Make sure that what you are talking about is factual and not rumors or thoughts that are a result of your own fears and anxiety. Focus on what you can and will do to be safe as a family. Educate them about germs and personal care and hygiene. It is helpful to make sure that information you share is age appropriate. Young children need very different information than a teenager. Knowledgeable children are safer children. Please see the link, “Talking with children about Coronavirus Disease 2019: Messages for parents, school staff, and others working with children”, a resource created by the CDC. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/talking-with-children.html

Announcement for the Food Service Program during school Closure: The food service program will start tomorrow, Wednesday, March 18th, for parents who signed up for those services. The Grab and Go program is available at both the Waubun and Ogema sites from 11:00am-1:00pm. We will have meals available at the Kitchen doors in the entry way, so you will not have to enter the buildings. Parents who signed up for the bus delivery meals will have meals delivered between 11:00am-1:00 pm by our bus drivers. Since the bus drivers will not be transporting children on their meal deliveries, they may be driving their personal vehicles. They will call the phone numbers provided on your survey when they arrive at the delivery site. Then the student or adult can come to the vehicle to get the meal(s) for the household. If you have not completed a request for services, please check on Facebook or Live feed for the survey or call any of our school offices and we will collect the information over the phone.

March 15, 2020 Dear Families, Today, Governor Tim Walz and Education Commissioner Mary Cathryn Ricker announced that all Minnesota public schools will close to students starting Wednesday, March 18, 2020 with the plan to resume instruction on Monday, March 30, 2020. During the school closure for students, Waubun-Ogema-White Earth Community Schools will be joining school districts and charter schools across the state to create plans to equitably distribute distance learning to our students should we need to close schools statewide for a longer period of time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Minnesota Department of Education is defining distance learning to mean that a student receives daily interaction with their licensed teacher(s) and appropriate educational materials. Starting March 30, 2020, per the instruction from the Minnesota Department of Education, student learning will continue for the rest of the school year. Our educators will be giving thoughtful planning to our distance learning plan, offering careful consideration for students in a variety of areas, including students receiving special education services, multilingual learners, students experiencing homelessness, and students who rely on meals served at school. Once our distance learning plan is finalized we will communicate the plan to families through our Apptegy communication system and mail. As always, our first priority is the safety and well-being of our students. We also want to ensure every child has access to the education they need and deserve. We will continue to keep you informed as we navigate COVID-19. Sincerely, Lisa Weber, Superintendent
