Student Driver Education By: Chad Rohde An update from the world of driving and Student Driver Education. We have some great news, unfortunately, we have some not so good news, too. First off, the great news! Driver Education will take place like normal this summer, with a few changes we made including making it more flexible and easier for families. We adjusted our age limit to allow summer birthday students turning “14” to be eligible for driver education which we are very excited for. Registration has been in full swing since March 1, 2021 and the number of families and the interest has been outstanding! Because of this high level of interest and number of registered students, this brings up the bad news. We originally had planned to close registration on April 30, 2021. However, we have reached our cap on the number of enrolled students, so we will now be closing registration for Driver Education. If you would like to be put on the waiting list in case anyone decides to drop the class, you need to reach out directly to Mr. Chad Rohde (chad.rohde@k12.sd.us). You will then be put on the list, first come, first served basis.

I just wanted to give you a heads up that your child's schedule may change (the order of classes), but every effort will be made to keep them on the same team. Thank you for your understanding.

WMS--We are so excited to welcome everyone back for a great 2021 portion of the school year! With everyone mixing and matching over the holidays, I just want to remind everyone that masks are expected at WMS. Lots of kids have been forgetting their mask or wearing them around their chin/neck. Masks will be crucial for the next few weeks. Please remind your child to bring a mask every day and encourage them to wear it properly. Good, bad, or indifferent on the mask issue, the advantage of this language is kids only have to be out of school for 3 days instead of 10 for close contact. It gets kids back to school sooner! If a mask doesn't work for your family, no problem! I'd just ask that you send me an email at todd.brist@k12.sd.us and I'll add them to my list for contact tracing (no mask will quarantine for 10 days and masked students will quarantine for 3). I need to hear directly from parents because sometimes the parent's expectation is different than the kid's wish. Thanks for your help on this!

The Watertown School District announces free breakfast and lunch for all students beginning October 1 and continuing through December or until federal funding runs out. Any enrolled student in K-12 is eligible for these meals. We have also changed our student close contact procedures. Beginning on October 5, if a student is masked, they would have the option of following the recommended 14-day close contact quarantine or choose to quarantine for 72 hours and come back to school masked, temp checked and socially distanced where permitted. School principals will notify you should this happen in your child's school. We are also changing the language with regards to masking from "highly recommended" to "expected." All students were given a mask to start the year, and we ask that you make sure your child has one with them each day. More details on the close contact procedures can be found at: https://core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/asset/uploaded_file/949702/Close_Contact_Student_Leave_Procedure.pdf. With this change, WHS will resume in-person classes on Mon. Oct. 5, and 7-12 activities will resume as well next week.

iPads are coming home tonight! Please set rules/boundaries! Use should be in a common area (not bedroom). Know their passwords. Monitor social media...limit usage. Take care of the iPad/cord. Ask about classes and work. The iPad is a learning tool, not an entertainment device!
