Mr. Siemsen reported on the following: 

• The school intends to have some form of winter concert. The school is exploring what that will look like, with several options being explored. There will not be a traditional program as it has been in the past (no Santa this year). Visitors will be allowed but it may be a more split grade-level production of a couple different times. 

• Along these lines, the school is also discussing how to address hosting basketball games. They are considering some form of ticketing system that will control the number of spectators, specifically due to space issues in the concession area. The school will be looking at this with their conference schools, and a decision will be made closer to the start of the season.

• Fifth/sixth grade basketball has been completed. 

• As a district, it has been moved to phase 2-Blue requiring all individuals in the building be masked with breaks granted where possible.

Mrs. Vermeulen reported on the following: 

• Great Plains Zoo visited and brought four animals for Pre-K – eighth grade students to see. Groups were small and socially distant. All precautions were in place.

• Oral Interp is being conducted virtually.

• The Middle School Student Council presented Laura Conrad with $500 to go to the family of Sutton Senska. 

• The school has two families in the district without Internet. They were given the information for the K12 connect program to get free Internet. 

• Two staff members and one student have tested positive, with 30 individuals being close contacts.

Discussion Items:

• Authorized amount not to be exceeded for a skid loader by next month’s meeting.

• The board will be looking at granting a bonus to staff as a sign of gratitude for the work being done in this difficult time. 

Old Business: None. 

New Business: None.

Th next regular board meeting will be held on Monday, December 14, 2020, at 7:00 p.m. at the Sanborn Central School. 

Motion by Spelbring, seconded by Enfield, all aye, to adjourn the meeting at 8:13 p.m.
