Students in 3rd grade learned that a dinosaur’s footprints revealed how quickly a dinosaur was running. Each student tried to “outrun” a dinosaur. Students learned to calculate the “stride length” of their classmates and if they were able to “outrun” three types of dinosaurs.

We want to communicate with parents and the community about the unexpected Lockdown at the JH/HS building this morning. Sonitrol was replacing the battery in a panic button and tested the button which set off the Lockdown alarm. We were not aware this was going to happen. There was no emergency. We apologize for any worry this caused. On a positive note, everyone in the building reacted accordingly within seconds. We want to give praise to the staff and students for being prepared and taking the alarm seriously.

Parents, P.M. PreK is closed Monday and Tuesday because of positive and probable positive Covid cases. A.M. PreK has also had a student test positive today. After consultation with Egyptian Health Department, we do not believe the cases are related and it is safe to have A.M. PreK. We will continue to clean and sanitize between the A.M and P.M classes to provide the safest setting possible. Have a great evening and we will see A.M PreK tomorrow.

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.

Parents: Many students in this school may be eligible for Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) Supplemental Nutrition Assistances Programs (SNAP) benefits during the 2020-2021 school year. P-EBT is a food assistance benefit for students who get free or reduced-price meals in schools under the National School Lunch Program, but – because of the pandemic – the school is not providing meals to the students at school. P-EBT benefits will help Illinois families buy food during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please click the link below to read about the Eligibility for Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) SNAP Benefits. https://5il.co/qb22
