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 Thursday, April 29, 2021 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) 4/27/21 & 4/28/21. 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 and White Earth Public Health to identify those who were in close contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19, and have 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.

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, April 10, 2021 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) 4/8/21 and 4/9/21. 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 and White Earth Public Health to identify those who were in close contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19, and have 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.

Congratulations to our March- The Seven Grandfather Teachings Award Winners! Each student was nominated by a staff member in grades 4-12. Dibaadendiziwin- Humility Humility is to know that we are a part of creation. Humility is represented by the wolf. For the wolf, life is lived for his pack and the ultimate shame is to be outcast. Live life selflessly and not selfishly. Respect your place and carry your pride with your people and praise the accomplishments of all. Do not become arrogant and self important. Find balance in within yourself and all living things. We must always consider ourselves equal to one another. We should never think of ourselves as being better or worse than anyone else. Humility comes in many forms. This includes compassion, calmness, meekness, gentleness, and patience. We must reflect on how we want to present ourselves to those around us. We must be aware of the balance and equality with all of life, including humans, plants, and animals.

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 Wednesday, March 24, 2021 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) 3/20/21. 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 and White Earth Public Health to identify those who were in close contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19 and have 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.

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 Tuesday, March 16, 2021 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) 3/11/21, 3/12/21, and 3/15/21. 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 and White Earth Public Health to identify those who were in close contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19 and have 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.

All spectators will be masked and seated at a distance in spaces marked with red tape. Spectators may only sit as singles or pairs, even if they are in the same household.

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 Wednesday,March 3, 2021 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) 3/3/21. 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 and White Earth Public Health to identify those who were in close contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19, and have 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.

Announcing our February Seven Grandfather Teaching Award Winners. Zaagidiwin- Love - The Eagle Knowing love is to know peace. Our love must be unconditional. When people are weak, that is when they need love the most. Love is a strong affection for another. This can form between friends and family. Love is an attachment based upon devotion, admiration, tenderness, and kindness for all things around you. For one to love and accept themselves is to live at peace with the Creator and in harmony with all of creation. Love knows no bounds. We must accept it sincerely and give it freely. CONGRATULATIONS!

Minnesota School Board Recognition Week February 22 to February 26, 2021 Minnesota School Board Recognition Week scheduled for February 22-26 Waubun, Ogema, White Earth Public School — The Minnesota School Board’s Association has set February 22-26 as Minnesota School Board Recognition Week to build awareness and understanding of the vital function elected school board members play in our society. Waubun, Ogema, White Earth Public School is joining other public school districts from across the state to celebrate School Board Recognition Week to honor local board members for their commitment to Waubun Ogema White Earth Public School and its students. “Strong schools help build strong communities – and the Waubun, Ogema, White Earth School Board devotes countless hours to making sure our schools are helping every child learn at a higher level,” Superintendent Lisa Weber said. “School board members make the difficult decisions every month – and spend many hours studying education issues and regulations in order to provide the kind of accountability our citizens expect. This year, with the pandemic, they have put in overtime.” The members serving our district and their years of service are as follows: Allan Haugo (16 Years) Christie Haverkamp (10 Years) John Zima (8 Years) Terry Dorman (4 Years) Derek Hoban (2 Years) Vikki Bevins (2 Years) Nick McArthur (2 Years) Our school District honored our school Board Members with Certificates of Recognition and special recognition at our regular School Board meeting. The Student Council gave individual treat bags and gratitudes for each member also. Thank you ISD# 435 School Board members! Your commitment, hard work, and dedication to education, students, staff, and community help us all continue to grow!

We have worked with MDH and White Earth Public Health to identify those who were in close contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19, and have 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 Families: Happy Winter, With the upcoming dangerously cold weather we are asking that students are dressed appropriately. Please make sure they are wearing boots, hats, mittens or gloves, warm jackets and snow pants if available. On the bus routes, it is possible in extreme circumstances that a student may be sent back into the house to get dressed in winter gear and end up having to be driven in by parents. We need to work together to keep our children safe and dressed to match the weather. Our main concern is the safety of our students. Please help us maintain their safety. Beyond the dangerously cold weather that is impending, during the winter months it is important that our students come appropriately dressed so that they may enjoy outside recess when the weather permits. We appreciate your cooperation with us and look forward to continuing our work together as One Team with One Goal of student success. Thank you, Waubun Ogema White Earth Administration Team

Our January The Seven Grandfather Teachings Awards: January was WISDOM- Nbwaakaawin: The Beaver To cultivate knowledge is to know wisdom, which helps us make decisions that honor our well-being. This is represented by the beaver, who patiently uses his impressive teeth and creative mind to build sustainable communities. Be humble in knowing where you excel and what your limits are, and collaborate with others who have expertise you may lack. The beaver represents wisdom because he uses his natural gift wisely for his survival, and changes his environment in an way that best suits his life and the life of his community. Like the beaver, we must realize that everyone has something to offer and skills that they can share with others. We must work hard to open our ears and our minds and respect our teachers, our parents, and others who want to share their wisdom with us. When we understand that everyone has something to share, we gain wisdom and become better people.

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 Sunday, January 31, 2021 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) 1/21 amd 1/22. 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 and White Earth Public Health to identify those who were in close contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19, and have 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 1 of 2 GENERAL NOTIFICATION FOR FAMILIES 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.

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.

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!

General notification for families that a person in the school program community tested positive for COVID-19 Waubun-Ogema-White Earth Public School Saturday, January 16, 2021 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. No dates have been identified for potential school community spread. We cannot for privacy reasons share details about the person. At this time, they are staying home and/or working at home until they are well and can no longer spread the disease. 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 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 Mina Spalla, School Nurse or Lisa Weber, Superintendent at 218-473-6171.

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.

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.
