Message from the Superintendent: Dear Ram Family, After a relatively mild start to winter, circumstances have certainly changed. When it comes to deciding whether or not to close schools, the past several days have presented obvious challenges. Unfortunately, this decision is far from an exact science. Factors to be considered include snow totals, road conditions including ice, wind chill temperatures, and whether or not buses will start. Today, Monday, Jan. 15, a combination of these factors made the decision to close more clear. In addition to the bitter cold, we have ice-packed back roads and several buses that would not start due to the cold. While we consider these factors, we have to balance the ability of students, staff, and buses to arrive safely at school with our responsibility to educate our kids. With just 180 days to teach our kids each year, each day is an important opportunity to do so. Please know that we absolutely want our kids at school - when it is deemed safe to do so. The decision-making process here in Kalamazoo County typically involves communication among the Superintendents across the county. Specifically, G-A pays close attention to our direct neighbors, including Gull Lake, Climax-Scotts, and Comstock. That communication may begin as early as the day prior or in the very early AM on potential school closure days. As we look ahead to Tuesday, Jan. 16, and Wed. Jan. 17, we are closely monitoring the factors. Regarding wind chill, when the National Weather Service (NWS) issues a "wind chill warning" that impacts the morning commute, we will likely close school. If the NWS issues a "wind chill advisory," assuming roads are passable and buses will start, we will likely be in session. Honestly, I see Tuesday going either way - please prepare accordingly. If we are open, buses will likely be moving more slowly. Please bundle up those kids waiting at bus stops and encourage teen drivers to be extra careful. In addition to whether or not to close schools, we also have to consider whether or not it is safe to hold extra-curricular events. In some cases, such as an overnight snowstorm, conditions can improve enough throughout the day to allow events to be safely held. This is a decision that is typically made during the day of the actual school closure. Communication on these events may come through normal school processes or from other administrators or coaches. As I stated earlier, this is not a perfect science, and as such, your grace is much appreciated. Be well, stay safe! Chris Rice Interim Superintendent Galesburg-Augusta Community Schools

Good morning Ram Fam! Tomorrow, October 4th, is FALL COUNT DAY! Please make sure your student is in attendance for the entire day. The number of students present on Count Day is how the state determines our district funding! (The higher the count, the more funding we receive.) We are celebrating the day with ice-cream sandwiches in the afternoon, and by allowing students to wear a hat during school hours. Every student counts!
