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.

Chris Selland gave the financial report and gave a brief update on the Family First Coronavirus Relief Act that provides limited emergency sick leave/family leave for employees dealing with a variety of COVID-related absences. 

Superintendent Weber discussed the transition to the yellow phase of the reopening plan during the last several weeks with additional precautions put into place. 

He also discussed plans for a virtual Veteran’s Day Program and alternative ways to honor our Veterans this year. Thanks go out to all the Staff, Media Advisors and Students that helped put together the program.  

Plans are still being discussed regarding Christmas concert options and basketball season protocol.  The hope is that the South Dakota High School Activities Association will be providing some guidance for districts to follow. 

The sidewalk project (in front of the gymnasium classrooms) has been completed by Mr. Schmiedt and his Industrial Technology Students to include both the sidewalk and landscaping. The Board would like to thank Mr. Schmiedt and all the students that assisted with the project. 

The football practice field/track project is ongoing with the asphalt phase tentatively scheduled for early summer. 

Lead Elementary Teacher Sarah Jensen updated the Board on Elementary issues and advised that the staff was working very well together to cover staff absences.

Jason Bruce advised that the County had contacted him to request a map of the bus routes so they could prioritize road maintenance for the routes.

The Board opened sealed bids received for the surplus Chariot floor scrubber and approved the high bid of $1,825.00 from Jason Zacher on a motion by Neal Hiemstra, with a second by Jodi Doering. Motion carried. The sealed bids received were as follows:

This amount is an increase from the original amount (up to $16,000.00) approved at the October regular meeting. Motion was made by Lisa Snedeker, with a second by Jodi Doering, and motion carried.

On a motion by Jodi Doering, seconded by Neal Hiemstra, the Board approved a special board meeting to be held in the commons area on November 24th, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. Motion carried.  The purpose of the meeting is to reassess the district’s reopening plan with possible modifications regarding quarantine times for close-contact students.  

There being no further business to come before the Board, the November 9th, 2020, regular board meeting of the Woonsocket Board of Education was adjourned at 7:53 p.m. on a motion by Neal Hiemstra, with a second by Lisa Snedeker. Motion carried.
