GPS Special Board Meeting was today at 2:30 p.m. A Motion was made by Mitch Lundby and Second by Lavern Johnson. The motion was the following: I make a motion that Grenora Public School District acknowledges and will encourage the ND Department of Health’s Executive Order #2020-08 along with the Governor’s Executive Order #2020-43. The Grenora School District is not a Law enforcement agency, therefore GPS, including administration and teachers, will not police the use of masks being worn or not worn in school or on school transportation. Currently, according to the GPS Handbook, administration can contact the proper enforcement agency if they deem necessary for a violation of law. It is then up to the local law enforcement to respond accordingly. The motion carried 5-1

Friday night message from Mr. Paine!!!! https://www.facebook.com/stephanie.m.paine/videos/10215984931008477/ Have a great weekend everyone!
I’m sending out a BIG request to all parents, students and staff of the Grenora School District. The yearbook staff usually accumulates a lot of great photos throughout the school year that we can use for the yearbook pages and the school newspaper. These photos portray the student life inside our halls, classrooms, cafeteria, on sports arenas, the stage, club and class trips, and on the playground. This is where we need your help! Our opportunities were cut short due to COVID-19. If you have photos that you think would demonstrate either school subjects at home or athletics or music events from anytime during the school year (this includes all ages), we would like to see them as soon as possible. We won’t be able to use all photos submitted but we will sure look carefully at every one before choosing. Photos must be taken in quality lighting and must be at least 300 dpi. We need team photos from elementary and junior high sports if you have any of those. We have a few students and staff who missed portrait day when Lifetouch came in the fall. PLEASE send me a digital image taken at home. The indoor portrait needs to be taken from the waist up with a solid background. Pretend the Lifetouch photographer is making you smile . We want a portrait in the yearbook for all students and staff! (If you are unsure whether a portrait was taken in the fall, I have that information.) Seniors, I sent an email a couple weeks ago to each of you with a few requests for photos, quotes, baby pictures and a staged photo of your “Most Likely To…..” pose. Please email all photos to me at firstname.lastname@example.org . If you have a hard copy, I can scan it and return it to you. Contact me if that is what we need to do. The yearbook is student driven so we have one month to finish it up. The yearbook staff and I REALLY appreciate your assistance; we want to make the school annual a treasure that helps us remember all of the 2019-2020 school year. Thank you! Stephanie Paine
Wednesday April 22 Update: I want to send a BIG THANK YOU to parents, students, family members, community members, and staff for everything you are doing to continue the education of our children!

Grenora Public School is joining other schools across the state in “Turn on the Stadium Lights.” We will be turning on the football field lights tonight from 7:00-9:30 p.m. as a way to honor our students, staff, and community members in this time of distance learning while school buildings are closed due to COVID-19. These lights are a symbol of hope and an assurance that the students, families, and community members are in our hearts and on our minds. Thank you to to the Minnesota High School Activities Association for this idea!

I am pleased to announce that our online/distance education plan has been approved by the State Superintendent and the Governor!

Due to logistics problems associated with the coronavirus in selling and collecting tickets for the fishing raffle, the April daily drawing will be postponed to May.

Good Evening Everyone, Governor Burgum has closed schools to students indefinitely. Prior to his decision, the district had decided to call off school through April 6th. We wanted to give families time to prepare for childcare. Now that we are under Governor Burgum’s executive order, we will not have to use the days we had built into our school calendar. The staff at Grenora Public School has been working hard at creating a distance/online academic platform so our students will be able to continue their learning during this pandemic. Transitioning from face-to-face learning to distance/online learning is going to be a challenge for all of us. I ask for your patience and support during this time. We are planning to begin that transition next week starting Tuesday, March 24, 2020. This will give us time to work out any issues before the mandatory April 1st date set by the Governor for having plans in place. We have compiled a list of students who need electronic devices and internet access. If you have not yet contacted the school regarding a need for either of these items, please do so as soon as possible. Our main concern through all of this has been the health and wellbeing of all students, employees and the community. Teachers will be reaching out to students and families to explain how they will be connecting electronically. If you have any questions, please contact teachers or the office. All staff email addresses are available on our website at www.grenorapublicschool.org and a list of staff telephone numbers will be given to families to ensure everyone is able to stay connected during this transition. The teachers are planning by the week--that schedule runs from Tuesday to Tuesday. The delivery and pickup of materials will happen every Tuesday. The following will be the weekly schedule: Saturday/Sunday: Teachers will be gathering all materials that students will need for the first week of distance/online instruction. Monday: 1. Staff will bag and label all materials and prepare them for curbside pickup and/or delivery to bus families. 2. On March 23rd the grab and go lunch program will begin. Curbside pickup will take place between 11:30-12:30 and will be located on the Southeast side of the parking lot. Rural grab and go delivery will begin at 11:30. We will be practicing social distancing and leave the lunches by the front door. School buses will be used for this delivery. If you have not yet signed up for the lunch program and would like to, please contact the office as soon as possible. Tuesday: 1. Grab and Go lunch program will continue. Schedule will be the same each day. 2. School materials will be ready for pickup at curbside pickup 11:30-2:30 and 4:00-5:30. Please contact the office if you cannot pick up materials during those times. School materials will be delivered to the homes of bus families during the rural lunch delivery starting at 11:30. If you are in need of an electronic device, a signed agreement for Student Check Out of District Owned Computer, Tablet or Device will be required prior to check out. These can be signed during the curbside pickup hours. Wednesday-Friday: Instruction/at home work will begin and continue on the weekly schedule Consecutive Tuesdays: 1. Completed Student work will be dropped off/New work picked up during the curbside times for in town students. Rural student work will be exchanged during the scheduled daily bus deliveries. 2. Electronic student work will be exchanged via email or google classroom as required per teacher. Reminders will be sent a day ahead for these exchanges. All school activities and events have been postponed at this time. The school and all classrooms are currently going through a deep clean. Please continue to check your email, text messages, phone messages, district website and district facebook page for information that is changing rapidly. This is an unprecedented situation that is continually changing and we are making plans for those changes as they come to us. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time and keeping our school safe! Aaron Aaron Rudningen Superintendent/High School Principal Grenora Public Schools
