Dear Sioux Central Community, I hope everyone was safe this weekend with the early winter weather that arrived in our area. As we begin the 2nd quarter of school, we are moving to a school-wide approach to students wearing masks vs. students not wearing masks in the classroom. Starting Monday, we are separating students based on masks vs no masks. The students have been highly encouraged to wear masks since the start of the school year, but some students are still choosing not to. Therefore, we are now having to separate students based on masks vs. no masks out of respect for those who are choosing to wear them and to avoid entire class quarantines based on the new guidance we received a short while back--https://drive.google.com/file/d/1QpqVj6wNPCXuFIdSXC1TWur9b_qPYGXQ/view?usp=sharing We have talked to students about this on Friday, and they know if they are not 6 feet apart they should have a face covering on. We want students to continue to receive face-to face instruction as we know this is what’s best for them. We are taking the necessary steps to keep our students and staff safe here at Sioux Central. We are extremely fortunate to be in school. Please remind your child to drive carefully and be safe during the upcoming winter months. Mr. Wood

If you haven't signed up yet, please go to https://www.ptcfast.com/schools/Sioux_Central_Community_School_1 We ask that you you try to have just 1 parent attend if possible and a mask be worn.

In this video https://drive.google.com/file/d/1StrldyfI0fCeSac-w05Bsk5sCfr3HTjZ/view, Sioux Central high school Language Arts teacher Jamie Turnbull shares how she got started with Pear Deck AND...provides a tutorial for teachers on how to use this platform. Iowa's Area Education Agencies have partnered with Iowa-based Pear Deck to give Iowa schools powerful learning tools. Pear Deck is a communication platform that lets teachers create interactive assessments and presentations that students can follow from their personal devices. It is used in conjunction with Google slides and assists teachers with designing engaging learning experiences and embedding formative assessments into online classrooms, and is designed to integrate with a district's existing tools including both Google or Microsoft applications. Thank you Prairie Lakes AEA for showcasing Ms. Turnbull and her talents.
Reminder to 2nd, 3rd and 8th grade parents....please sign and return the free dental screening/sealant consent form that was recently sent home with your child (see attached document).
