Letter from Superintendent Cuny, March 27, 2020

Dear LWS Parents & Guardians:

RE: LWS Covid 19 School Operation Plan


On Thursday, March 26th, the LWS Board held a special meeting to adopt and approve the following LWS COVID 19 School Operation Plan.  

Little Wound School campus will remain closed from March 30, 2020 - May 1, 2020 to continue to promote social distancing from the Covid 19 pandemic.  Keep in mind this date could possibly be extended. 


Little Wound School will continue to provide food service via grab-and-go breakfast & lunch bags for students living in Kyle, Monday through Friday from 11:00 am-12:30 pm, unless there is a health emergency or we are ordered by Oglala Sioux Tribe to cease all such operations (see OST Ord. No. 20-18). Students on our regular bus routes will continue to have grab-and-go breakfast & lunch bags delivered.  Please direct any food delivery concerns to Transportation Manager, Bill Clifford at 605-441-7296 or email:


The LWS Board has authorized the purchase of mobile-wifi-device for all enrolled students  6th-12th grade. These mobile-wifi-devices are expected to be distributed to students ASAP depending on delivery from vendors.  This device will have a built in AT&T data plan which will be your child’s point of contact with their teachers. The utilization of this device will be to increase the enrichment of our education services.  Please keep in mind that this transition process will require implementation of LWS student gmail accounts that will need parent authorization, student/parent usage agreements and the logistics of getting 6th-12grade students connected.  Please be patient as we attempt to roll this tool out as quickly as possible. Students in grades K-5th grade will utilize access to hard copy packets and individual interaction with designated teachers. 

Beginning March 30th to April 2nd teachers will begin the process of providing supplemental written packets, access to created LWS gmail accounts and access into google classrooms.  If you are unable to connect to any online educational resources our teachers will provide you individual hard copy supplemental educational material. It is our goal to have all students receiving supplemental material either online or hard copy resources by Friday, April 3rd and to get 6th-12th grade students online with the mobile-wifi-device by the week of April 6-11, 2020.  Please keep in mind the distribution of devices is dependent on the timely delivery from the vendor. 

Required School Minutes, Attendance, Grading, and Graduation: 

The specific details on how LWS will move forward on these processes is dependent on the Bureau of Indian Education and the State of South Dakota to waive specific regulations. Once we have received guidance from these agencies parents will be notified.  Please understand the LWS administration and teachers will not penalize students for the unfortunate consequences of staying safe and complying with CDC social distancing requirements of this Covid 19 pandemic and national emergency. LWS will do everything in our ability to provide enrichment education opportunities and not penalize our students.  I will keep all stakeholders posted as more information is made available. 

In closing, keep in mind that the LWS Covid 19 School Operation Plan is a working plan that is subject to change and modified.  We will keep you posted on any changes to our outlined plan stated in this letter.
