WE NEED YOUR HELP! Glendive Public Schools is struggling right now and in desperate need of substitute teachers, cooks and custodians. This past week we averaged 15 subs a day working in the buildings, with several positions left unfilled. We have an amazing staff that has been working tirelessly to shift, adjust, and cover everything that we need to fill these vacant positions so that we can continue to operate our schools. We are asking for our community's help to fill this gap so we won’t have to cancel school for a lack of staffing. Again, we are in desperate need of help! Please consider applying to be a substitute in our district. You don’t have to be a licensed teacher, you just have to pass a background check and take a short online training course. You can choose which days you want to work and give a preference as to which school(s) you would like to work in. To apply you can go to the District’s website at glendiveschools.com and click on employment opportunities on the top right corner. Or for more information please call Jackie Stinnett at the Superintendent’s Office at (406) 377-6102. We need you now more than ever!!
Glendive Public Schools would like to make our community aware of a recent law, HB 279 that allows individuals and businesses to make direct contributions to our schools with a dollar for dollar state tax credit. This means that every dollar you donate to our district is a direct dollar credit for your state tax obligation for 2022. The state is placing a $1,000,000 cap on the total statewide contributions accepted. This means that districts will be competing to receive donations before the limit is reached. The window for these donations opens at midnight on Jan. 3rd. Please contact our Business Manager, Anne Sadorf, or Superintendent, Stephen Schreibeis, @ 406-377-2555 for additional information or to arrange a payment.

THANK YOU TO THE GLENDIVE COMMUNITY AND GLENDIVE PUBLIC SCHOOLS Katy Kennedy NOV 12, 2021 “It gave me a very warm feeling deep down that my service in Vietnam was not vain. Many servicemen will never have the heartfelt appreciation I got from reading your note,” responded a veteran. Yesterday's day was Veterans Day. A day of such importance in our great country. I wanted to take a moment to celebrate the efforts of the community of Glendive as well as Glendive Public Schools. In partnership with the Veteran Letter Writing Campaign, over 2,000 veterans received letters of appreciation, kindness, and love from letter writers from the ages of 5-76. 1,025 individual veterans were written to across this great nation as well as throughout our world. 1,000 letters were written to individuals in veteran health facilities across the country. We have already received many responses from those who received our letters. As one veteran said, “I can’t tell you how touched I was to receive (your letters). So many times we forget to recognize the sacrifices that our forefathers made to give us the freedoms that we take for granted.” Well said, sir. Well said. Thank you to the Glendive community and Glendive Public Schools for their partnership with the Veteran Letter Writing Campaign. We can’t wait till next year, 5th annual campaign. Don’t forget you can always add individuals to our list. It never stops taking names of veterans and those still serving. Click on the link. With great appreciation Veteran Letter Writing Campaign and the Forsyth Family

Important information about 10/13/21: https://www.glendiveschools.com/article/559998
GPS will be canceling school for the remainder of the day. Please come and get your student from the schools or make arrangements for them to be picked up. Please be safe on the roads. We want to make sure that everyone is safe during this crazy time. Status of the buildings right now: We do not have water at JES and we still have power down at all of the buildings. The High School does have a backup generator that they are currently on. We do not feel the power will be back on before lunch time to feed our students. Our communication systems are not working well right now either.
We wanted to get this message out to you as soon as possible. At this point, we are still having school, but as of now, we have all 4 buildings without power because of downed power lines. The situation is being worked on and we should have more information soon. Please make sure you are checking your messages as we will be sending updates out soon. If we can’t get some things situated, we might have to cancel school for the remainder of the day. This decision will be made in the next 45 to 90 mins.
