Dear Parents and Staff, I apologize for the length of this email, but I am choosing to send one long email with information on various topics rather than multiple shorter emails. School Calendar Committee Each year in December, the district forms a Calendar Committee to develop a proposed school calendar for the following school year that is submitted to the school board for final approval.The Calendar Committee is comprised of a school board member, administrator, one elementary teacher, one secondary teacher, one member of the classified staff, one parent of an elementary student, and one parent of a secondary student.The Committee meets one time for about an hour, hopefully the first week of December at 3:30pm.Any parents interested in serving on the Calendar Committee should email me at Robert.sittig@k12.sd.us. Snow Days When we get to this time of the year in South Dakota, inclement weather that could affect whether we can have school becomes a real possibility.If it becomes necessary to call off school ("snow day!") or to have a late start, we will try to make that decision no later than 6:30am, and a telephone call, text, and email will be sent via Campus messenger to the contact information parents provided during on-line registration. If it is necessary to have a late start, it will always be either one or two hours late, so that parents know that the bus will arrive one or two hours later than normal.We would never start school more than two hours late as it would not be worth bringing students and staff in for that small amount of time.On late start days, all morning activities are cancelled, breakfast is not served, and morning pre-school is postponed and made up later.If we are in school and weather conditions develop where it is necessary to dismiss school early, we will always give parents at least one hour notice, and more if possible. It is very important that all families have a plan for what their children will do if there is a late start, early dismissal, or no school at all.In cases of inclement weather, bad roads, etc., school staff will either arrive late or leave shortly after students so they can get to and from school safely.Therefore, on late starts, students should not arrive more than 30 minutes before the start of school, and on early dismissals, students should depart from school within 30 minutes of dismissal. If there is a situation where the decision is made to have school but a parent does not feel it is safe to send their child(ren) to school, the parent should call the school clearly stating that is the reason they are keeping their child(ren) home.In that situation, the absence will be exempt, but missed school work will have to be made up. If we have a late start, the assumption is that all after school and evening activities will take place as usual.If we have an early dismissal for inclement weather, the assumption will be that all after school and evening activities are cancelled.If we have a " snow day," the assumption will be that all after school and evening activities are cancelled, with a caveat.Weather/road conditions could prevent us from having even a two-hour late start, but they could improve in time for an evening activity to take place.As I said, the assumption is that after school and evening activities are cancelled on "snow days," and any exceptions to that will be communicated to all, or at least to affected parties. Early Dismissals and Vacations There will be a 1:15pm dismissal on Tuesday, November 23rd for the start of Thanksgiving vacation with school resuming Monday, November 29th.There will be a 1:15pm dismissal on Monday, December 6th for teacher in-service.Lastly, there will be a 1:15pm dismissal on Tuesday, December 21st for the start of Christmas vacation with school resuming on Monday, January 3rd. Elementary Christmas Concert It will not be long before the Elementary Christmas Concert on December 2nd will be here. Traditionally, our Elementary Christmas Concert has a huge audience, which leads to parking issues and crowded seating, which can be a concern because COVID is still out there. To address some of these issues, we are going to split our Elementary Christmas Concert into two parts as follows: JK-2nd grades will perform from 6:00-6:30pm. Students should report to their classrooms by 5:45pm. We ask parents to keep their children's coats because students will not be returning to their classrooms when they are done performing.After all JK-2nd students are done performing, parents will assume responsibility for their children. If a family only has students in JK-2nd, they are asked to leave after the JK-2nd performance to make room for the families coming later. If a family has students in both JK-2nd and 3rd-5th, they are asked to have their JK-2nd Grade students sit with them during the 3rd-5th part of the concert. 3rd-5th Grades will perform beginning at 6:45pm. Those students should report to their classrooms by 6:30pm. If a family has both JK-2nd and 3rd-5th grade students and they arrive as a unit by 5:45pm, the 3rd-5th Grade students should sit with their parents during the JK-2nd grade performance, and then they should go to their classroom to get organized for their performance. Once again, we ask parents to keep their children's coats because students will not be returning to their classrooms when they are done performing. A similar plan is being formulated for the middle and high school concert Christmas Concert December 9th, and that information will be sent out when finalized. Supt. Bob Sittig Estimados padres y personal, Me disculpo por la longitud de este correo electrónico, pero estoy eligiendo enviar un correo electrónico largo con información sobre varios temas en lugar de varios correos electrónicos más cortos. Comité de Calendario Escolar Cada año en diciembre, el distrito forma un Comité de Calendario para desarrollar un calendario escolar propuesto para el siguiente año escolar que se presenta a la junta escolar para su aprobación final. El Comité de Calendario está compuesto por un miembro de la junta escolar, administrador, un maestro de primaria, un maestro de secundaria, un miembro del personal clasificado, un padre de un estudiante de primaria y uno de los padres de un estudiante de secundaria. El Comité se reúne una vez durante aproximadamente una hora, con suerte la primera semana de diciembre a las 3:30 p.m. Cualquier padre interesado en servir en el Comité de Calendario debe enviarme un correo electrónico a Robert.sittig@k12.sd.us. Días de nieve Cuando llegamos a esta época del año en Dakota del Sur, las inclemencias del tiempo que podrían afectar si podemos tener escuela se convierten en una posibilidad real. Si es necesario salir de la escuela ("¡día de nieve!") o comenzar tarde, intentaremos tomar esa decisión a más tardar a las 6:30 a.m., y se enviará una llamada telefónica, un mensaje de texto y un correo electrónico a través de Campus Messenger a la información de contacto que los padres proporcionaron durante el registro en línea. Si es necesario tener un arranque tardío, siempre será una o dos horas tarde, para que los padres sepan que el autobús llegará una o dos horas más tarde de lo normal. Nunca comenzaríamos la escuela más de dos horas tarde, ya que no valdría la pena traer a los estudiantes y al personal por esa pequeña cantidad de tiempo. En los días de inicio tardío, todas las actividades de la mañana se cancelan, el desayuno no se sirve y el preescolar de la mañana se pospone y se prepara más tarde. Si estamos en la escuela y se desarrollan condiciones climáticas donde es necesario despedir la escuela temprano, siempre daremos a los padres al menos una hora de anticipación, y más si es posible. Es muy importante que todas las familias tengan un plan de lo que harán sus hijos si hay un inicio tardío, un despido temprano o si no hay escuela en absoluto. En casos de inclemencias del tiempo, malas carreteras, etc., el personal de la escuela llegará tarde o se irá poco después de los estudiantes para que puedan ir y venir de la escuela de manera segura. Por lo tanto, en los inicios tardíos, los estudiantes no deben llegar más de 30 minutos antes del inicio de la escuela, y en los despidos tempranos, los estudiantes deben salir de la escuela dentro de los 30 minutos posteriores al despido. Si hay una situación en la que se toma la decisión de tener la escuela pero un padre no siente que sea seguro enviar a su(s) hijo(s) a la escuela, el padre debe llamar a la escuela indicando claramente que esa es la razón por la que mantienen a su(s) hijo(s) en casa. En esa situación, la ausencia estará exenta, pero habrá que compensar el trabajo escolar perdido. Si tenemos un comienzo tardío, la suposición es que todas las actividades después de la escuela y por la noche se llevarán a cabo como de costumbre. Si tenemos un despido anticipado por inclemencias del tiempo, la suposición será que todas las actividades después de la escuela y la noche se cancelan. Si tenemos un "día de nieve", la suposición será que todas las actividades después de la escuela y la noche se cancelan, con una advertencia. Las condiciones climáticas / de la carretera podrían impedirnos tener incluso un inicio tardío de dos horas, pero podrían mejorar a tiempo para que se lleve a cabo una actividad nocturna. Como dije, la suposición es que después de la escuela y las actividades nocturnas se cancelan en los "días de nieve", y cualquier excepción a eso se comunicará a todos, o al menos a las partes afectadas. Despidos anticipados y vacaciones Habrá un despido a la 1:15 pm el martes 23 de noviembre para el inicio de las vacaciones de Acción de Gracias con la reanudación de la escuela el lunes 29 denoviembre. Habrá un despido a la 1:15 pm el lunes 6 de diciembre para los maestros en servicio. Por último, habrá un despido a la 1:15 pm el martes 21 de diciembre por el inicio de las vacaciones de Navidad con la reanudación de la escuela el lunes 3 deenero. Concierto de Navidad de Primaria No pasará mucho tiempo antes de que el Concierto de Navidad de Primaria el 2 de diciembre esté aquí. Tradicionalmente, nuestro Concierto de Navidad de Primaria tiene una gran audiencia, lo que lleva a problemas de estacionamiento y asientos abarrotados, lo que puede ser una preocupación porque COVID todavía está ahí fuera. Para abordar algunos de estos problemas, vamos a dividir nuestro Concierto de Navidad de Primaria en dos partes de la siguiente manera: Los grados de JK-2 se presentarán de 6:00 a 6:30 p.m. Los estudiantes deben presentarse en sus aulas antes de las 5:45 p.m. Pedimos a los padres que mantengan los abrigos de sus hijos porque los estudiantes no regresarán a sus aulas cuando terminen de actuar. Después de que todos los estudiantes de JK-2 nd terminen de actuar, los padres asumirán la responsabilidad de sus hijos. Si una familia solo tiene estudiantes en JK-2º,se les pide que se vayan después de la actuaciónde JK-2º para hacer espacio para las familias que vienen más tarde. Si una familia tiene estudiantes tanto en JK-2º como en 3º-5º,se les pide que sus estudiantesde JK-2º Grado se sienten con ellos durante la 3ª-5ª parte del concierto. 3º-5º Grados se presentará a partir de las 6:45 pm. Esos estudiantes deben presentarse en sus aulas antes de las 6:30 p.m. Si una familia tiene estudiantes de JK-2º y 3ºa 5º grado y llegan como una unidad a las 5:45 p.m., los estudiantes de 3ºa 5º grado deben sentarse con sus padres durante el rendimiento de JK-2ºgrado, y luego deben ir a su aula para organizarse para su desempeño. Una vez más, pedimos a los padres que mantengan los abrigos de sus hijos porque los estudiantes no regresarán a sus aulas cuando terminen de actuar. Se está formulando un plan similar para el concierto de Navidad de la escuela intermedia y secundaria el 9 dediciembre, y esa información se enviará cuando se finalice. Supt. Bob Sittig

Parents/Guardians of a high school student, To celebrate being GRITogether, we have students and teachers planning a High School Thanksgiving potluck. We are asking staff and students to volunteer by signing up to bring food for our feast. To help streamline things, we will be having each class be responsible for bringing a certain type of dish. Seniors and Juniors will be in charge of main dishes. Sophomores will bring sides. Of course, we can't forget about desserts, so Freshmen will volunteer to bring a dessert. Students will be asked to sign-up/volunteer during class meetings this Wednesday to fill a certain number of slots. Once all necessary spots are filled, students & parents will be provided with the sign-up link in case someone else wants to contribute something specific. Have a special family recipe you'd love to share? Don't worry, you can add it to the list. The purpose of this message is to share this exciting and new idea as well as give you a heads up that students will be volunteering on Wednesday. If your student signs up to contribute to the potluck, you should be hearing directly from them after the class meeting. Thank you for your continued support of our students and staff. We look forward to a fun meal TOGETHER! Thank you, Student GRIT Committee

It has come to our attention that the link to the on-line spirit wear sale that went out in a message yesterday was incorrect and it showed the site was closed. In case that affected anyone trying to order, the on-line store has been reopened and will close at 11:59pm tonight. Immediately below is the correct link. Winter Spirit Wear Sale Nos ha llamado la atención que el enlace a la venta de ropa de espíritu en línea que salió en un mensaje ayer era incorrecto y mostraba que el sitio estaba cerrado. En caso de que afectó a cualquiera que intente realizar un pedido, la tienda en línea ha sido reabierta y cerrará a las 11:59 pm de esta noche. Inmediatamente debajo está el enlace correcto. Este es un recordatorio de que la fecha límite para pedir ropa de espíritu de invierno es este domingo 31 de octubre a las 11:59 pm. No demore el pedido o perderá esta oportunidad. Vea abajo para más información. Our Fall / Winter Spirit Wear store is officially open..... we are opening it a little earlier than usual, since supply and demand on some items are taking a little longer than expected and this way if we get the orders in now, we will hopefully have the items in hand in time for the 1st games..... The Spirit Wear store is open NOW thru midnight, Oct. 31st., again, NO exceptions as that will delay the orders even more than predicted. When ordering, if our wonderful Bulldog supporters see something they like, they just have to click on the item, then in the next screen to the right of the item, there is a drop down that states "Choose Design". This is where they will choose a new Generic Baltic Bulldogs logo, or a mens/womens basketball logo. As they choose their logo option, the image will change so that they know they are ordering the correct logo that they prefer. There are specific items notated on the site that they will take longer to arrive, just so that everyone is aware that those particular items will arrive at a later date. Thanks again and here's to another successful Spirit wear shopping season...... Estimados estudiantes, padres y personal: Nuestra tienda Otoño / Invierno Spirit Wear está oficialmente abierta ... la abriremos un poco antes de lo habitual, ya que la oferta y la demanda de algunos artículos están demorando un poco más de lo esperado y de esta manera si recibimos los pedidos ahora, con suerte tendremos los artículos en la mano a tiempo para los primeros juegos ..... La tienda Spirit Wear está abierta AHORA hasta la medianoche del 31 de octubre, nuevamente, SIN excepciones, ya que eso retrasará los pedidos incluso más de lo previsto. Al hacer el pedido, si nuestros maravillosos seguidores de Bulldog ven algo que les gusta, solo tienen que hacer clic en el elemento, luego, en la siguiente pantalla a la derecha del elemento, hay un menú desplegable que dice "Elegir diseño". Aquí es donde elegirán un nuevo logotipo genérico de Baltic Bulldogs o un logotipo de baloncesto para hombre / mujer. A medida que eligen su opción de logotipo, la imagen cambiará para que sepan que están solicitando el logotipo correcto que prefieren. Hay artículos específicos anotados en el sitio que tardarán más en llegar, solo para que todos sepan que esos artículos en particular llegarán en una fecha posterior. Gracias de nuevo y por otra exitosa temporada de compras de ropa Spirit ... https://hauffsports.chipply.com/balticbasketball/ Club de refuerzo atlético báltico

Dear Students, Parents and Staff, I would like to congratulate our varsity volleyball players and coaches on an outstanding 18-6 regular season, which earned them the fourth seed in the region, only .05 points behind third seed Madison. The team will now move on to region competition on Tuesday, November 2nd against McCook Central-Montrose at approximately 7:30pm at Baltic. Due to an official shortage, the match may start later than 7:30pm, but it will not start ealier than 7:30pm. This is a region match, which means it technically is a "state event," so state rules will apply. The cost of admission is $6 for adults and $4 for K-12 students, and activity tickets or conference passes will not be honored, so everyone must pay the price of admission. Good luck Lady Bulldogs! Supt. Bob Sittig Estimados estudiantes, padres y personal: Me gustaría felicitar a nuestros jugadores y entrenadores universitarios de voleibol por una destacada temporada regular de 18-6, que les valió el cuarto sembrado en la región, solo .05 puntos detrás del tercer sembrado Madison. El equipo ahora pasará a la competencia regional el martes 2 de noviembre contra McCook Central-Montrose aproximadamente a las 7:30 pm en Baltic. Debido a una escasez oficial, el partido puede comenzar después de las 7:30 pm, pero no comenzará antes de las 7:30 pm. Esta es una coincidencia de región, lo que significa que técnicamente es un "evento estatal", por lo que se aplicarán las reglas estatales. El costo de admisión es de $ 6 para adultos y $ 4 para estudiantes de K-12, y no se aceptarán boletos para actividades ni pases para conferencias, por lo que todos deben pagar el precio de admisión. ¡Buena suerte, Lady Bulldogs!

Dear Parents, Each year, the district convenes a Food Service Advisory Committee (FSAC) that meets with representatives from our Food Service Management Company to address concerns and offer suggestions for program improvement. The FSAC is comprised of students, parents and school staff, and usually meets one time for about an hour. This year's FSAC meeting will be November 9th at 7:00pm via Zoom. If you are willing to serve on the FSAC, please email Business Manager Marsha Polzin at marsha.polzin@k12.sd.us. We recognize November 9th is the date of the volleyball SoDak 16, and if our volleyball team qualifies for the SoDak 16, we will move the FSAC meeting. Let's hope we need to move the FSAC meeting! Supt. Bob Sittig Queridos padres, Cada año, el distrito convoca un Comité Asesor de Servicios de Alimentos (FSAC) que se reúne con representantes de nuestra Compañía de Administración de Servicios de Alimentos para abordar inquietudes y ofrecer sugerencias para mejorar el programa. La FSAC está compuesta por estudiantes, padres y personal de la escuela, y generalmente se reúne una vez durante aproximadamente una hora. La reunión de FSAC de este año será el 9 de noviembre a las 7:00 pm a través de Zoom. Si está dispuesto a formar parte del FSAC, envíe un correo electrónico a la Gerente Comercial Marsha Polzin a marsha.polzin@k12.sd.us. Reconocemos que el 9 de noviembre es la fecha del SoDak 16 de voleibol, y si nuestro equipo de voleibol califica para el SoDak 16, trasladaremos la reunión de FSAC. ¡Esperemos que tengamos que mover la reunión del FSAC!

Dear Parents, To promote two-way communication between the school and parents, we form a Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) that meets 2-3 times throughout the school year. At the PAC meetings, the administration presents information to parents on various topics and gets feedback, and parents have the opportunity to ask questions about topics or concerns of general interest. It should be noted that the PAC meetings are not a time to ask questions or address concerns about specific students or staff. Parents are asked to serve on the PAC for two years, so each year we have half of the PAC serving their second year and half serving their first year. Of course, if a parent is not interested in serving a second year, we will find a replacement, but the experience must not be too painful as most return for the second year. Please email me at Robert.sittig@k12.sd.us if you are interested in serving on the PAC. We are looking for five new PAC members, and if we have more interest than spots, members will be selected to have a good cross-section of K-12 parents. The meetings are usually held on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday at 6:30 or 7:00pm and usually last 1.5 hours. Once we have the PAC members set, we will determine the date of the first meeting, which we hope to hold in late October or early November. Thank you for considering participation on the PAC. Supt. Bob Sittig Queridos padres, Para promover la comunicación bidireccional entre la escuela y los padres, formamos un Comité Asesor de Padres (PAC) que se reúne 2-3 veces durante el año escolar. En las reuniones del PAC, la administración presenta información a los padres sobre varios temas y recibe comentarios, y los padres tienen la oportunidad de hacer preguntas sobre temas o inquietudes de interés general. Cabe señalar que las reuniones del PAC no son un momento para hacer preguntas o abordar inquietudes sobre estudiantes o personal específicos. Se les pide a los padres que sirvan en el PAC durante dos años, por lo que cada año tenemos la mitad del PAC en su segundo año y la otra mitad en el primer año. Por supuesto, si un padre no está interesado en cumplir un segundo año, encontraremos un reemplazo, pero la experiencia no debe ser demasiado dolorosa ya que la mayoría regresa para el segundo año. Por favor envíeme un correo electrónico a Robert.sittig@k12.sd.us si está interesado en servir en el PAC. Estamos buscando cinco nuevos miembros del PAC, y si tenemos más interés que lugares, los miembros serán seleccionados para tener una buena muestra representativa de padres de K-12. Las reuniones generalmente se llevan a cabo los lunes, martes o jueves a las 6:30 o 7:00 pm y generalmente duran 1,5 horas. Una vez que tengamos los miembros del PAC establecidos, determinaremos la fecha de la primera reunión, que esperamos tener a fines de octubre o principios de noviembre. Gracias por considerar la participación en el PAC. Supt. Bob Sittig

Thanks again and here's to another successful Spirit wear shopping season...... https://hauffsports.chipply.com/balticbasketball/

Hello 7th and 8th grade families, Sioux Valley has a scheduling conflict for Monday. We are now moving our JH volleyball game from Monday to Tuesday, October 12th. The games will still begin at 4:00PM and they will still be at the Sioux Valley School in Volga. Thank you, Cameron Kerkhove Secondary Principal/AD

Dear Students, Parents, and Staff, Our Fall / Winter Spirit Wear store is officially open..... we are opening it a little earlier than usual, since supply and demand on some items are taking a little longer than expected and this way if we get the orders in now, we will hopefully have the items in hand in time for the 1st games..... The Spirit Wear store is open NOW thru midnight, Oct. 31st., again, NO exceptions as that will delay the orders even more than predicted. When ordering, if our wonderful Bulldog supporters see something they like, they just have to click on the item, then in the next screen to the right of the item, there is a drop down that states "Choose Design". This is where they will choose a new Generic Baltic Bulldogs logo, or a mens/womens basketball logo. As they choose their logo option, the image will change so that they know they are ordering the correct logo that they prefer. There are specific items notated on the site that they will take longer to arrive, just so that everyone is aware that those particular items will arrive at a later date. Thanks again and here's to another successful Spirit wear shopping season...... https://hauffsports.chipply.com/balticbasketball/
