IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: November 16, 2021 Dear Galesburg-Augusta Community Members: The result of the ongoing Covid pandemic, the cold and flu season, as well as the shortage of staff available for hire, have made this a challenging school year. Not only are we short staffed (open/unfilled positions), but we have also had a high number of staff sickness. On most days in the recent few weeks, we have not been able to fill all classrooms with certified teachers, and often have had to combine classes to get through the day. Additionally, the number of students absent due to illness is rising. Therefore, Galesburg-Augusta Community Schools will be closed on Monday, November 22 and Tuesday, November 23 prior to the Thanksgiving holiday. We believe that this longer break from the classroom, a total of nine days, will provide an opportunity to do a thorough cleanse of our school buildings and give time for staff and students to get well. Our goal is that come Monday, Nov 29, 2021, when we return to the classrooms, we will be fully staffed, students’ attendance will be closer to 100%, and we can focus on teaching and learning. Childcare will be available and athletics will continue both Monday and Tuesday of next week. We may continue to see Covid cases rise even after the Thanksgiving break, but the good news is that Kalamazoo County is doing much better than our surrounding counties. I do want to encourage staff and families, if they have not already done so, to consider using the additional time off to get their vaccinations or booster shot. Our common goal is to keep children in school. With the loss of learning time last year, we have lots of catching up to do. Whatever each family can do to support this goal, I am grateful for. Sincerely, Wendy Maynard-Somers

Q: Why is the Galesburg-Augusta School Board placing the bond project on the November 2, 2021 ballot when the voters did not pass it in May? A: The needs represented in the bond project have not gone away. The proposal lost by three (3) votes. After the election, many community members attended the regular board meeting and felt strongly that we need to try again for the benefit of today’s students and our future Rams.
*** 2021 Bond Proposal *** Q: Does G-A still have one of the lowest millage rates compared to other local districts? A: Yes. At 5.5 mills we are second to the bottom. With an increase to 6.7 mills, we will still be in the bottom third for the number of mills levied.
*** 2021 Bond Proposal *** Additional classroom space at the Primary School means returning 4th grades to the PS and 8th grades to the MS. It will open space back up at the High School for needed programs: Space is maxed out at our Primary School due to necessary and additional programs being added over the past several years. By adding an additional wing on to the Primary which will house four 4th grade classrooms and a STEAM education classroom, we once again will be able to house our 8th graders back at the Middle School and our Primary will return to a PreK-4 building. Currently the High School space is also maxed out keeping us from adding teachers and courses. Our very successful Robotics program is housed in a maintenance building.
You can register to vote AND vote at the same time! Just bring a valid ID to your precinct on November 2nd!
