We are so excited to have students in the buildings tomorrow. The school doors will open at 7:45 am. School starts at 8:00 am. Students will have their temperature checked as they walk in and will report to their classroom (1st hour class for jr high and high school). Students will be able to eat breakfast in the classroom if they choose. Tomorrow will run on a half day dismissal with staggered dismissal times between 11:15-11:30. Lunch will not be served tomorrow. Friday and all next week will run on an early dismissal with staggered dismissal times between 1:45-2:00. As we did last year, the water fountains will be closed. Please send a water bottle with your child. Galatia schools have had to decrease a bus route this school year. Routes have changed a little and town pick ups have been reduced to a few established bus stops in order to adjust. Please be patient with us for the first week or so as we work as we work through this. Just a reminder, as per governor mandate, all students/staff/visitors in the school building and on school transportation will be required to wear a mask.

We have received new guidance concerning graduation venue capacity. We can accommodate more than 10 tickets per graduate (8th grade and seniors). We do have to keep this a ticketed/seated event. If a graduate needs more than their 10 tickets originally announced, the graduate needs to come to the office starting on May 3rd to request more tickets. Once we are sure we can stay under capacity, we will distribute those extra tickets. At this time, we do not anticipate having issues with capacity.

Important Athletic Update! The Illinois Department of Public Health has issued rules and regulations that schools must follow in order to have sports this year. One rule is that all spectators must be 30 feet from the playing floor. Due to the limited size of our gyms, it is simply not possible for us to meet this rule. As a result, there will be NO SPECTATORS at any HOME games this year. This regulation is not something Galatia Schools can control, it is State policy. We know this is very disappointing but we are working on recording and/or live streaming games when feasible.

Parents or legal guardians will need to sign the paperwork to pick up the devices. If a parent or legal guardian is not available during these hours next week, the forms will be available on the district website. These forms can be printed/signed at home and sent with another adult with the child to pick up the device. Parents can elect to take an insurance policy for $25 that covers most accidents with the exception of lost or stolen devices. Please make sure you log in and do attendance during remote learning.

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.

Just a reminder for Remote Learning students: You must mark "In Attendance" on the Remote Learning Attendance Form each school day by noon. JH/HS remote learning students, you only have to do this one time a day, not for each class period. Here is the link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSei7dw_Cm4MKdJgEdmDXPXAWTOH2xlvvy8aH5WZTpnCU_IUVg/viewform?usp=sf_link In-person learning students do not have to fill this form out daily while school is in session. In addition to filling out the Remote Learning Attendance form, remote learners must check their Google Classroom daily for their assignments. Some classes have assignments that need to be done that day (classes that have daily in-class assignments) so please check early in the day.
