We just wanted to make sure everyone was clear on the Calendar coming up as we have had a few changes. The original hard copy calendar shows that we do not have school on Feb. 8th. That is incorrect. That has been moved to Monday, Feb. 15th as an inservice day for teachers. The date of Friday, Feb. 12th that shows No School is correct as it is a comp day for teachers due to Parent Teacher Conferences. Therefore, No School on Friday, Feb. 12th and No School on Monday, Feb. 15th. We will be in session every other day this month.
Please visit our website and the following link to read about our Tiers and current data for the week of Jan 31. https://www.usd352.org/article/391020?org=gusd

West and North Elementary will slide back to Tier 1.0. Goodland Jr./Sr. High School will remain on Tier 1.5. More information can be found here: https://www.usd352.org/article/377822?org=gusd
We are excited to welcome students back on Monday, January 4th for school. Although the Sherman County active positive cases has dropped to 11, and we have no active positive cases in any of our buildings as we start school; we think it is still sound policy for us to remain in mask at this time until we see the impact of the Christmas Holiday. All buildings will be on Tier 1.5 for the week of January 4th.
With the unfortunate passing of long-time 3rd grade teacher Tara Mull, we will not have school on Wednesday, January 6th, so that the our school family can honor her life and career; and that staff and students can do so as well.
I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Joyful Holiday the best way I can think of. Thanks Expressos. https://core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/asset/uploaded_file/1053149/IMG_2394.mov
