Below is information regarding free mobile testing In Harrisburg this weekend. Yesterday the Egyptian Health Department shared the Galatia Community is the community with the greatest amount of COVID related activities they have in the counties they serve. Ideally, we only want to have full remote learning for the next two weeks. To accomplish this we are asking, begging for your help. Please help by social distancing, wearing masks, washing hands, and staying home when you have symptoms. Additionally, please stay home when quarantined and give all contacts to the health department when they are contact tracing. We will all need to be part of the solution to get students back in the school where we want them.

Any family who would like a meal delivered to their house along a regular bus route may have one each day we are out for remote learning. Anyone not along a regular bus route will need to call the school to get a meal delivered. Parents can also pick up a lunch at either of the school buildings between 11:00 and 12:30. Anyone under the age of 18 living in our district is available for the meal. Buses will stop at houses along the route and honk. Someone from the household will need to come to the bus and get the meal(s). It would help us prepare if families would call in and let us know for sure the number of meals needed. Buses will begin the routes starting at 11:00 and we hope to finish around 12:30. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the school.

Graduation has been a topic of discussion since the beginning of the mandated school closing. We had moved the graduation date to June 19th in hopes to have a traditional in-person graduation. With the re-opening phases of the state, there is no way we can have a gathering for graduation on June 19th. We do not feel pushing the date back any further is the best move. There are several seniors who will be leaving for the Armed Forces, students moving for college/jobs, and family plans will become more complicated as summer goes on. Having said all this, we have researched what other schools have done or are doing for graduation. We have decided to have a walk-through graduation where each senior and 8th grader will have an individually scheduled time to come to the school and walk across the stage. We will video each student doing this and put each clip together as one production. There will be a digital format of the ceremony available at a date TBD. Each student’s parents or legal guardian ONLY may enter with the student to watch them walk across the stage. There will also be a spot set up in the gym for parents or legal guardian to take a picture of their graduate. The scheduled date for seniors to have this walk-through graduation is Tuesday, May 26th from 2 PM to 8 PM and eighth graders is Wednesday, May 27th from 4 PM to 8 PM. Senior and 8th grade parents will receive a call this week with their scheduled time. Please arrive no more than five minutes before your scheduled time. When you arrive at the school, remain in your vehicle until a staff member lets you know we are ready for you. You will enter the south doors of the high school and proceed into the gym. Instructions for how to cross the stage, how to get your diploma, where to stop for a picture, etc. will be given to you upon arrival in the gym. When you’re finished, you will exit the main entrance. We ask that you do not congregate with others in the parking lot. We know this is not the traditional graduation we had all hoped for, however, we feel this is our best option to include all seniors and 8th graders in a graduation ceremony and also follow the guidelines set forth by this state. We appreciate your patience with us as we have and continue to work through this process. Thank you.

Galatia Students, Parents, and Community: Galatia School District has been discussing many options for graduation during this closure. As we have been telling you, guidance from the state is updated daily and therefore things can change. At this time, no in-person or drive-through graduation ceremony is allowed via directions from the Illinois State Board of Education. We have decided to postpone the original graduation date of May 16th, to a date in June (TBA) in hopes that an in-person graduation ceremony can be held at that time. IF we are not able to hold an in-person graduation at that time, we will be looking into a digital format for graduation. We are very sorry to not be able to give you finalized plans yet. This issue is very important to all of us and we will do everything in our power to make it happen. As of right now, the school is working on a Scholarship Banquet video to release electronically mid-late May. Thank you.

As many of you know we lost one of our own, Tyler Anderson, last night in a car accident. Tyler was a junior at Galatia High School. He was an active member of FFA and Trapcats. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this time. This news comes as a huge shock to everyone. Galatia School District wants to make sure to provide our students with resources as they are grieving this loss. First, there will be counselors available by phone through WOVSED. To reach one of these counselors, any student can call 618-8 41-8282 Monday-Friday during the hours of 8:00AM-3:30 PM. If you need to reach a counselor after hours, call Saline County dispatch at 618-252-8661, and tell them you need to talk to a counselor. Second, Illinois has set up a hotline during this COVID-19 pandemic called Call 4 Calm. Students can text the word “TALK” to 552020 and a counselor will call them. Lastly, Galatia staff understands that many students prefer to talk to someone they know and trust during times like these. Please reach out to a trusted staff member if you need to talk.

Attention seniors. Keep an eye on scholarship deadlines. Scholarships that are to be sent directly to the organization should still be mailed with enough time to arrive by the due date. For scholarships that need to be turned into the school, you can mail them to the school, email them to alaunius@galatiak12.org, or put them in the dropbox inside the main doors at the high school between 8:00am-12:00pm. Please do not leave scholarships in the dropbox after 12:00pm. If you need an official transcript, email alaunius@galatiak12.org and that will be mailed for you.

Just a reminder during this cold and flu season Sick Day Guide Lines When to keep a student home from school: • Child has a fever of 99.5 or higher. • Has been vomiting or has diarrhea (within 24 hrs). • Sore throat if you suspect a strep infection. • Drainage from an ear or eye (may indicate infection). • Severe cough that may be uncontrollable. • Frequent sneezing or coughing. This spreads sickness to others. 24 Hour Rule: • Fever: Keep your child home until Fever free WITHOUT medicine for 24 hours. Colds can be contagious for at least 48 hours. Returning to school too soon may slow recovery and make others sick. • Vomiting or Diarrhea: Keep your child home for 24 hours after the last time he or she vomited or had diarrhea. • Antibiotics: Keep your child home until 24 hours after the First dose of antibiotic for anything like ear infection, strep, or pneumonia. Please consult your doctor promptly if there are any doubt about the condition of your child. Follow the directions from your child’s physician or school nurse before sending your child back to school following a communicable disease. The nurse may ask for a note from your child’s physician upon returning to school. Whenever possible, the school nurse will notify parents of a communicable disease incidence as appropriate.
