This is an important message from Gardiner Public Schools.
I just wanted to reach out and give a quick update on the situation pertaining to the school and Covid-19. First, the school board took action yesterday afternoon during an emergency board meeting, to declare and unforeseen emergency. This along with a couple other actions, put Gardiner Schools into position to use a variety of different methods to meet state standards to continue receiving full funding from the state in case the shutdown continues. Second, the Governor released a statement yesterday hinting toward a continued shutdown. There was no mention of a time frame. It appears a good metric to use is to watch what is happening on the east coast, we seem to be a week or so behind them in what is happening. Third, your staff and teachers are planning on Monday for the possibility of a longer shutdown. By Tuesday, I hope to be able to communicate to you our plan for instruction, meals, and other services.
For parents with students in High School taking an online course either through MTDA or BYU, the expectation is that they continue with the coursework for those classes. Please help remind them to stay caught up in those courses.
If you have any questions please feel free to call 848-7563, I would be happy to answer.
