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.

Spectators may only sit as singles or pairs, even if they are in the same household. Groups of larger than 2 would be seated too close to other spectators. 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. Groups of larger than 2 would be seated too close to other spectators. Those who disagree with the rules are able to watch video from the comfort of their own homes at BGMR Sports YouTube.

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!

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 Friday, February 12, 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) 2/11 and 2/12. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Carolyn Cossette, School Nurse, or Lisa Weber, Superintendent at 218-473-6171.

Hello Everyone, and Happy Holidays Here is an update on our Learning model!

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

She makes sure all her assignments are turned in, in a timely manner. Nevaeh makes sure that when she needs help she will patiently wait and ask for it. I am so grateful to have Nevaeh as part of my class this year. Keep up the great work Nevaeh, and share all the kindness that you have to offer.” Nevaeh is most thankful for her family because they are always there for her when she needs them.

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.

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. We have added door to door meal delivery targeted to start December 7, 2020 depending how quickly our families complete Meal Service Delivery Survey information below. Elbow Lake, Berry’s, and Hilltop will discontinue at that time and be replaced by door to door. Deliveries will be canceled and rescheduled on snow days. Meal Service Delivery Survey The USDA has changed the meal plan for the rest of the year, so meals are free for all families. We still need families to complete food service applications as they benefit the school and the students in many other ways financially. Food Service Application for Free and Reduced Lunch Link There will be no Food Service when school is not in session over winter break (12/28-1/1) as we will not have staff available to offer services. During shortened weeks, we will try to alter the schedule or services to make options available even though they may be different than the usual options. 9. Tier 1 Child Care Tier 1 Child care will be offered to essential Employees in both Hybrid and Distance Learning Models.Instructional support and learning session attendance will be a part of the child care schedule this not guarantee all work will be completed during the child care day. If the essential employee is not at work, the child(ren) are not allowed to attend child care. Working from home does not qualify for Tier 1 child care. Tier 1 Child care is not offered when school is not in session such as school breaks, in-service, vacations, snowdays, etc. We will not have the staff contracted to offer services. 10. Inclement Weather/Snow Days In the event we have Inclement weather creating hazardous conditions for employees and Tier 1 childcare, the District utilize 1 of 3 options: close due to inclement weather and use a non-instructional day remain open if they are able to provide instruction through distance learning.

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.

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!

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.

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.
