GES News 11/19/21
Greetings Families! We are looking forward to having all of our classrooms back from quarantine next week, and we want to thank families of the two classes affected by the quarantine for their flexibility during this time! Next week we will have another extended time away from school. For those traveling, we wish you safety. For all, we wish you good health! Thank you for continuing to be mindful of Covid safe practices. It can get very tricky when gathering with extended family. Hopefully, the grid provided by Public Health in the section below will be a helpful tool. As in the past, if in doubt, wear a mask. If you are feeling ill, kindly stay home.
Public Health Update
We've received a number of questions regarding Covid safety during the upcoming holiday season. The Minnesota Department of Health released an easy to use grid this week that may answer many of your questions.
