So, have you filled out your brackets yet? It's March you know. I'm talking about March Book Madness in the library. The library is running a book tournament this month using sixteen of the favorite book titles from this year's Battle of the Books competition. These are all awesome books that you should know about. This contest is open to everyone. Fill out a tournament bracket found in the library or on the library's Schoology page and make your predictions by next Thursday. Guess if you need to. Better yet, check out and read a book from the tournament and increase your chances of winning prizes such as free copies of books in the tournament, Starbucks cards, and Spring Book fair cash. See you in the library for brackets and books!

Good Morning GSD Families, After consulting with Riteway Bus Company and local municipalities this morning, we have decided to proceed with a regularly scheduled school day today, Thursday, February 23rd. Bus routes may take longer than usual to get to their stops and schools this morning because of road conditions. Please exercise patience as our bus drivers are working to ensure safe travel. If you decide to keep your child home today, we ask that you call your child’s school office to notify them. Thank you for your patience and understanding over the past couple days as we have navigated the weather and travel conditions for students and staff. Germantown School District
Dear GSD Families, We have been monitoring the weather continuously today and have been updated by the National Weather Service on the most current weather conditions as of 3:57 p.m. The most severe weather is anticipated between 3:00 p.m. today and 6:00 a.m. tomorrow. We have contacted local municipalities and public works on road conditions for morning travel and asked them to ensure plowing and salt for the current winter mix. We intend to have school tomorrow, Thursday, February 23rd. We will continue to monitor the weather through the night, and I will be on a 3:45 a.m. National Weather Service webinar tomorrow morning to solidify whether to hold or cancel school. If the weather predictions change, school cancellation will happen by 5:15 a.m. with a call and email to all families and staff. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate Wisconsin's unique extended winter weather. Dr. Chris Reuter Superintendent Germantown School District
