      Teachers have district online curriculum to use.
    3. In-person- When students feel sick, 90% of work is still online so they can still keep up if they need to be kept home. Parents applaud teachers…“Amazing”.
    4. There has been 1 case of COVID-19 here at school. Effected a very small number of students. All other students have stayed home when they were sick so there were no contact tracing quarantines.
    5. Cleaning- Custodians are cleaning high touch areas many times a day.
    6. Lunches- 3 lunches implemented, lines on floor, dots on floor to wait their turn. Kids are spread out on tables. Kids are able to eat outside.

UMS Cell Tower Expenditures 2020-21

$3000 Each Year (There is currently $4400 in this account.)

We would like to suggest 3 spending categories for approval:

1) PBIS Student Rewards
Rewards for students, teams, grade levels for accumulation of CATS/PBIS points

Examples include:

  • Mini-candy bars
  • UMS water bottles
  • UMS T-shirts
  • Ice cream/cookie class rewards
  • UMS pencils
  • UMS bracelets

 2) Field Trip/Festival Buses*

Examples include:

  • Debate Buses
  • Dance Fieldtrip
  • Festival Bussing

 3) Teacher Recognitions/Expenditures

Examples include:

Any of these areas that have a single expenditure over $1000 would need individual approval by the School Community Council. 

Everyone was in favor of these expenditures.
