The increasing numbers of positive COVID-19 cases in our county has put us back in the “high” category. This necessitates a revision in the Glenwood School learning plan. Superintendent Heather Gimlin announced that, as of Tuesday, Nov. 17, grades kindergarten through 7th and special education students are continuing to attend school in person until Thanksgiving. Students in grades 8 through 12 have transitioned back to online learning, with the exception of a few who do not have adequate internet in their homes and do their online learning in the school gym, using the school internet. Those students who will be at home will have lunches delivered to their homes.

There’s one happy grandma here in Glenwood right now. Cathy Biber recently traveled to Salt Lake City to visit her grandson, Andy McFall, a 2020 Glenwood HS graduate. Andy attends Neumont College of Computer Science in SLC. Accompanying Cathy was her daughter, Andy’s aunt, Denise Russum. The two ladies had a wonderful time searching the city for murals, visiting Pioneer Park, taking in the local sights, and spoiling and feeding the “starving” college student. Cathy reports that Andy loves Neumont and has finished three of his five classes already this quarter. At this point, due to the pandemic, Andy has recently had to go to online classes until the end of November. He enjoys socializing and has made many new friends. We miss you here in Glenwood, Andy, but are proud of your success down at Neumont.

There are other happy grandmas and grandpas here in Glenwood, too. Dakota Jones and Shae Morava welcomed their new baby boy, Kasen Luke, on Nov. 4. The incredibly handsome little man weighed in at almost 8 pounds and joined big sister Karsyn Rose at their home in Glenwood. Glenwood grandparents are Elizabeth and Darren Jones, and great-grandparents are Marlene and Derrel Montgomery. Congratulations, Dakota, Shae, and Karsyn, on the arrival of your adorable little cowboy.
