IMPORTANT DATES & EVENTS
GREAT LUNCH UPDATE: We are very pleased to announce that all the slots for help needed have been filled for the remainder of the school year! As we say goodbye to Hans and Will, we say hello to Jennifer Trowbridge, who will be the daily head cook, and Christina Ridlbauer, Emily Haussner, Kristina Mattson and Brianna Schueller, who will assist throughout the week. Thank you each, for stepping up to fill this need!
REMINDER TO PRE-ORDER GREAT LUNCH ONLINE! - A note was sent home with students today sharing the importance of ordering student lunches online. Without an accurate lunch count on the EZ School App system, it is impossible to know how many meals to prepare. Some days only half of the students are signed up online, with students just reporting in the classroom that they are having school lunch. This causes great stress in the kitchen, and last minute trips to the grocery store in an attempt to get the extra meals ready by lunch time. We don't want to put our new kitchen staff in this position. In addition, while the online signup is easy for parents, it is time consuming for Great Lunch staff to enter every student who has not pre-ordered.
THANK YOU FOR MAKING YOUR CHILD'S ONLINE LUNCH ORDER A PRIORITY!

COVID TESTING FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS - The State of Minnesota has provided free COVID-19 test kits that we can offer all Otters students at GES. Information was emailed to Otters parents yesterday. Please call school if you have questions, or wish to have your child participate.
ORDER YOUR 2020-21 YEARBOOK TODAY! - Yearbook order forms were send home with students on Friday. If you did not see this form, you can still order a yearbook. A note on your payment will suffice. The cost is $13 each. Cash or checks payable to GES can be sent to school with students.
