Message from the Webster Alumni Association:

We have had many inquiries from Webster Alumni wondering if we have made any decisions regarding this year's reunion weekend.  We realize the event is still a ways out, but with people traveling and making plans to get back to this area, we decided it was best to cancel the events hosted by the Alumni Association.  These events include the banquet on Friday evening and the parade on Saturday morning.

It is important to note:  This cancellation DOES NOT include individual Red-Letter class parties for Saturday evening.  We have informed your class contacts to use their discretion in regards to these.  There is still time for this virus to clear up and our social distancing recommendations to be lifted.  In the event this does take place, we encourage you to still get together with your class.  Please see your class representatives for any details involving individual class parties.

In the meantime, we wish health and safety to all Webster Alumni scattered throughout the United States & beyond. Thank you!

School board approves to give latitude to administration

The Webster Area School Board called for a special meeting March 22 to discuss giving the administration more latitude on teachers work schedule and for the administration to look at a way to serve meals during the time it is locked down to the public due to the COVID-19.

Tom Sannes said since the last meeting less than a week he has been in contact Superintendent Jim Block and has called for the meeting to make recommendations from the last meeting.

At the previous board meeting teachers where to be in the school from 9 a.m.- 3 p.m. or schedule of six hours that fit their schedule.

Sannes said things have been very positive and he has received a lot of comments and while no one has all the right answers adjustments need to be made and that is the reason for the meeting. A number of schools took off last week Sannes said at the Sunday night meeting, but kudos go out to our staff for being ahead of this.

Block said he would like to see modifications as needed for the staff. The last four days, March 16-19 can be counted as school days. He said March 20 was scheduled as an in service which he hopes can either be made up this summer or at the beginning of next year.

A weekly staff log was presented to the board that the staff are using during the time of the school closure. Block said he believed teachers are actually putting in more hours now than when the students were in a normal classroom setting, they are submitting lesson plans and is very pleased, but would like more latitude of hours and come in when needed.

Board member Joel Shoemaker asked if he felt students were getting an education? Principal Craig Case said for the most part, but there are a struggle with a few who do not have the technology yet, but hopes to get that worked out and some devices to them. Students who get packets versus their lessons over the internet are getting their packets from teachers outside the building. He said on Tuesday another packet pickup might be 7-9 a.m. and 3-6 p.m.

Sannes suggested anyone who might have a lap top or tablet not in use that the school might use should contact Block to see if there is still a need.

Board member Jamie Reetz said he felt communication has been very good between teachers, students and parents. It is a all a work in progress.

The board approved giving the administration the ability to fix problems as they arise and flexibility needed.

Shoemaker added, “We as parents need to step up and help the kids get through this.”

Board member Larry Jirava asked if Block had heard any news on when or if school resume as normal. Block said if he was to guess it would be in for a long term situation.

Meal plan

Sannes asked about implementing a meal plan while limiting exposure. We need to take this seriously and we need meals.

Block said he will work on a plan and told the board that half of kitchen staff is in the high risk category by age or medical conditions. Webster has approximately 20 percent or 105 students on either the federal subsidized reduced or free meal program. He told the board while Webster has no summer meal program, extending that time frame by another two months would be a hardship.

Block said he will start to look into some type of grab and go meal for students who wish to receive them. He would ask families to contact him for an accurate number on the meals needed. He said we do not want to plan for 75 and 200 show up. He said this would also be needed to set up a schedule to space out the times for pick up to keep the number of interactions down.

Block said schools that offer breakfast and lunch and doing some type of program are doing lunch and at the same time giving the next days breakfast. He told the board those on the federal program need to pick up their meal in face to face contact to be in compliant with the program. He will also look into other staff helping in prep or distribution.

Reetz said if other people in the community also wanted to help they should get in contact with Block or Case to see if help is still needed.

Closing remark

In closing Sannes said we need to take this COVID-19 seriously, it is no joking matter and we need to try and isolate ourselves as this is the best thing to keep the spread of the virus down.
