Happy National School Nurse Day! Yesterday, Floodwood School staff showered our incredibly wonderful School Nurse, Nurse Sarah, with flowers and thank you sticky notes on her door. Thank you to all the nurses out there, but an especially BIG thank you to Nurse Sarah for her dedication to keeping Floodwood School students and staff safe! We all appreciate the passion and heart you put into your work. #NationalSchoolNurseDay #FloodwoodSchool #PolarPride #Greatinthe698

Due to an increase in cases this week at school and in the community, we have consulted with The Minnesota Department of Health. It has been advised we do a two week "reset" where we go to Distance Learning for all students. The intent is to have families quarantine, if possible, to help stop the spread of the virus. Here is the plan: * No school March 29th (planning day) and April 1st, 2nd, 5th or 6th, due to Spring break * Floodwood Connect starts on Tuesday, March 30 through Friday, April 9th * Return to in-person learning on Monday, April 12, if the number of positive cases goes down Please order an at home saliva kit from MDH and test your student if they show symptoms. Order your test kit here: https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/testsites/athome.html If you have positive cases within your family between now and April 12, please notify the school. We will have no students in the building during the “re-set.” This means there will be no extra support or childcare on Wednesdays. We understand this can be a hardship on families and a loss of extra support for students. We look forward to resuming the regular Wednesday schedule of child care and extra support as soon as we can. During the “re-set,” there will be no school sponsored activities. All school activities will be cancelled or rescheduled. The school board meeting scheduled for March 29th will be held virtually. A link is posted on the top of the agenda which can be found on the school website, if you would like to attend virtually. The Fitness Center will also be closed during this time. Students will take their tech device home today. Monday, March 29th, will be a No School day for the students so that teachers have time to plan. Teachers will connect with families on Monday or Tuesday to share the plan for the rest of the “re-set.” We appreciate our families’ flexibility and understanding during this time, and the entire school year. We will continue to do our very best to keep students in school as much and as safely as possible. Thank you and stay well! Sincerely, Dr. Rae Villebrun Sarah Marshall Superintendent/Principal School Nurse, COVID Coordinator
STEM Team-Building Challenges: Growing and Learning Together Teachers worked through a number of STEM challenges during a recent professional development day. Together, we can see challenges as opportunities to learn and grow!
More outdoor fun in the sun!
Break time! Kindergarten students enjoyed playing in the warm weather and looking for signs of spring.
More 5th grade fun....fraction chains, MN animal adaptations, reading in the gym for “I Love to Read” day, and Dr. Villebrun reading her new favorite book to our class.
For science, the 5th grade created Google Slides and replicas of a chosen Biome.
The 5th grade has been learning about probability, data, fractions and decimals recently. For example, “What is the probability of choosing a green, red, blue, or yellow square from the bag?”
The 5th grade has been learning a lot about Fractions lately!
School is on time today, March 11th. Buses will be running on time. However, students who live on side roads might not be picked up. Bus stops on side roads will be determined based on the condition of the road.
