Galena Community, Staff, and Pirate Families- On behalf of the Galena School District, we would like to express our deepest gratitude for your support in approving the recent high school referendum. As you may know, the unofficial election results show that voters have approved the Galena High School referendum 1352 votes (65.09%) to 721 votes (34.91%). Thank you for trusting our school district and for taking the time to participate in yesterday's election. The voter turnout nearly doubled the percentage of the county and the primaries across the state. We understand that this decision was not made lightly, and we are humbled by the overwhelming support that we have received from the Galena community. Your generosity and commitment to our schools have demonstrated your understanding of the importance of education and the future of Galena High School. The much-needed improvements will create safe and more functional learning spaces at our high school and extend the useful life of existing facilities. Using referendum and District funds, the school will benefit from security and safety upgrades, accessibility improvements, renovations, and a classroom addition that will connect the recently-completed GEMS building with the future GHS building. We appreciate the community’s investment, and we understand our responsibility to use these funds wisely. We will continue to work diligently to ensure that every dollar is spent in the best interest of our students and our community. Thank you for all that you do - and have always done - to support the students of the Galena School District. Sincerely, Galena School District Board of Education and Tim Vincent, Superintendent https://youtu.be/xV0vjlY6YjU

Pirate Familes and Staff- All Galena students and staff will be on a 2 hour delay due to forecasted freezing rain tomorrow morning and morning Pre-K is canceled. The normal bus times and all start times are pushed back 2 hours. I'm sorry for the inconvenience but we want to keep our student drivers and busses safe in the morning; also to give families time for arrangements. Take your time in the morning tomorrow!
