Snow Make-Up Day
Due to last Friday's, Feb. 21, snow day, the school district will holding a regular school day next week Friday, March 7, in place of the in-service day. Due to the number of inclement days this winter the district needs to make-up days to meet the state required number of minutes for school.
Cancelled Early Release Days
On Saturday, Feb.1, 2014 the school board voted to use the next 2 early release days(2/5 and 4/16) as normal school days to make up the lost school time recently to inclement weather. The district is short required minutes due to the 4 snow days and by canceling the next 2 early release days the minutes can be recouped. This means that on 2/5 (next Wednesday) and 4/16 students will be in school until the end of the day (normal release time).
Photos of Students
Each year in the school district’s Annual Notice mailing we inform parents that the school district may use student photos taken in classrooms, during activities, at sporting events, or in general areas around the school. In the past we would notify you that these photos may be used for the press, school district materials, projects in the classrooms, and on school web page. We are updating our notice to include addtional Internet portals such as the school district facebook, twitter, Instagram, and the district app, etc. If you do not want your childs photo used please contact the building principal.
