Congratulations to our boys basketball team for their win last night! The boys play Beulah on Monday at Trinity at 1:00 PM. Trinity is requiring fans to get a pass to be able to sit in the designated fan section - red bleachers. Tickets can be picked up at the school all day Wednesday and Monday morning due to the power being turned off on Thursday and Friday of this week. A separate ticket will need to be purchased at Trinity for admission into the game. If a fan does not obtain a ticket from the school, they will have to sit on the ends of the gymnasium.

After surveying our school community and reviewing the data from the NDDoH, administration has decided to ease our mask policy. The more than 80% drop in active COVID-19 cases since mid-November heavily influenced our decision not to extend the mandate. We still strongly encourage the usage of masks and students WILL continue to need to wear their masks when entering the cafeteria. There will be instances where they need to wear masks on buses. Also, teachers may request students wear them in their classrooms when underlying health conditions are a concern for that classroom and social distancing isn't possible. We expect students to be respectful of this request to ensure the safety of others. We need to continue to wash our hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or inside of elbow, throw the tissue away, and then wash hands. If your child is sick, please keep them home. They can still attend class via remote learning. Teachers will define their classroom expectations to their students. In the event, we see another outbreak, we may need to go back to our mask mandate.

North Dakota's statewide mask mandate expired Monday, January 18, 2021 after Gov. Doug Burgum and his administration declined to extend it. However, the CDC and NDDoH still strongly encourages residents to wear masks when social distancing cannot be maintained. At this time, New England Public School will require masks until administration, faculty, and staff can more clearly define our mask policy moving forward.
