Discussion Items:

•Discussion was held regarding the start well plan that was developed. Mr. Siemsen and Mrs. Vermeulen provided information they received from contacting the families of the district. The majority of families had read the proposed plan and were in favor of how it was presented. If they had not read it, they were given an opportunity to hear the points and give their opinions. (This information would be the basis for the eventual approval of the plan). There were some questions regarding the potential for distance learning and how that would be should it become necessary (it will be formalized and scheduled where the staff and students will meet via an online meeting with attendance being required as well as having a singular platform to provide and receive school work). A couple amendments to the initial plan include requiring masks be worn on buses, when working with staff or students in a one on one setting and when social distancing cannot occur, as well as during passing/transition periods until they reach their destination. The plan, a list of precautions being taken at school, and a daily checklist for parents to use before sending their student(s) to school are available on the school’s website.

•Other discussion items included an update on the flooring project, which hit a snag and will need to be finished this week, and the potential for rescheduling the asphalt project so as not to interfere with the beginning of school.
