January 2018!

Welcome to 2018!  We hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas break and that all of our students are rested and ready to learn! 


As we move into the heart of winter, we would like to remind everyone of the school closing policies.  We will call off school for hazardous weather conditions including blizzards, poor visibility and cold.  The standards for closing school or delayed start for cold are:  -20 degrees standing temperature or -30 degrees wind chill.  Closings and delays will be announced on TV6 as well as the computerized calling system.  Please be sure to contact the school office if you have had a change of phone number. 


January will fly by and before you know it, we’ll be into the shortest month of the year and eventually…SPRING!!  Be sure to check out the calendar of events listed below.  Come out to support our students and help winter go by quickly.
