Principal V here, and I'd just like to give a shout out to all Jefferson staff. Teaching is a challenging profession, and the wonderful people here are always trying to focus on the positive. Over the course of the year, we've called students to the office 1503 times for receiving a Dinomite ticket, which is at least an order of magnitude less than how many times staff have recognized Dinomite behavior and given students a Dinomite ticket. Moreover, our school has collectively written more than 275 Postcards to students. Teachers make education what it is. Thank you to Jefferson and all the wonderful people in the Glendive Public Schools for doing what you do for kids. #GPSPride #JeffersonDinomites #GPSCommunity #stayfocused #staypositive #celebratethegood

With the help of MDU, Holden Electric, Netzler Plumbing, and Mondak Construction Supply, we were able to restore power and water around 11:00am. Without knowing that we'd get power and water back, we had to entertain the possibility of cancelling school, or bringing in porta potties (which would have been a questionable solution for our students).

If your student is absent, and the school has not been notified that they are excused, you will receive a call from our Notification System (377-9385). There will be two calls a day, morning (10:00) and afternoon (4:00). We want to make sure that you are aware of the absence and if you are aware, that you are reminded to call in to the school to excuse the absence. We thank you for your patience as we work out the kinks of this new system. If you have any questions, please contact the office of your child's school. Thanks!

Update on pipes: we have been in communication with the teams working on our piping issues. Unfortunately, they were not able to clear the pipe blockage tonight and will continue working on the issue tomorrow, and possibly this weekend. As a result, JES does not have working bathrooms. Because of the cold, we’ve ruled out the porta-potties as an alternative. Given the givens, JES will not be able to be open for students tomorrow. We apologize for the inconvenience, and want to reassure you that the safety and well-being of our students and staff is of our top priorities. Again, JES, and only JES, will not be open for school tomorrow. Thank you for your understanding and please remember, in all things, be safe, be respectful, be kind, be responsible, and be a learner.

Buses will not be running tomorrow morning because of the snow. As with any situation, the safety of our students is the utmost importance. If a bus happened to get stuck, we do not want to have students standing outside waiting at their bus stops in the cold temperatures. Buses will be running tomorrow afternoon, as we feel the buses will be able to maneuver better by then. As with any situation like this, if you feel it is not safe to get your kids to school, please call the school and let them know. We feel it is important for parents to have a choice and make the final decision for their student. Please know that these decisions are not made lightly as we know these situations can be an extreme inconvenience for many families. Thank you for your understanding in this difficult matter. Again, buses will not be running tomorrow morning but will be running in the afternoon. We will also be continuing our early release schedule in each school with parent-teacher conferences from 2:00 - 8:00 pm. Thank you!

The link between nutrition, physical activity, and learning is well documented. Healthy eating and activity patterns are essential for students to achieve their full academic potential, full physical, and mental growth, and lifelong health and well being.
