Updated spectator guidance for Calamus/Wheatland and the Tri-Rivers Conference. Spectator Restrictions (updated January 8, 2021) Governor Reynolds issued a new proclamation that goes into effect January 8th. The new guidance for K-12 school activities states that the school organizer and all spectators must ensure at least six feet of physical distance between each group. Also, everyone not directly participating in the event shall wear a mask or face covering for all gatherings. This proclamation means that schools must create guidance that will allow our spectators to socially distance at our events. The Tri-Rivers Conference has agreed that we will allow all members of the participant’s household plus the participant may invite four additional people to attend our events. There are schools that will be hosting events that may not be able to safely allow spectators plus 4 additional members of households to attend each event. Each school may have to set different criteria for an event to ensure spectators have the ability to safely distance We ask that spectators attend only the event they were invited and then exit the gym so that we have additional room for spectators at the other activities.

Parents: Just a quick update on the current situation as it relates to Cal-Wheat and school closures. We are closed through April 30th at this time. The District applied for and received permission from the Department of Education to continue providing learning opportunities for your children. Staff have met and are planning ways to deliver new learning. That will be through teacher contact, zoom, google classroom, paper packets, email, etc... I want to stress that this is voluntary, but strongly encouraged, and children will receive feedback but no regular K-12 classes will receive grades.

Rather than putting these in one large email that nobody will read, I’m hoping these will be very building specific.

Thank you for your patience and support as we continue to work together in your child’s educational needs. Lonnie Luepker

2nd grade classes doing a team building activity. Each person had a string attached to one rubber band. They had to pull together to widen the rubber band to fit over the top of the solo cup... then let it in so it grasped the cup..... move together and make a tower with the cups. They made the tower and then tried to take the tower down into a stack.
