Latest Updates – INFORMATION UPDATED 01/11/2017                                                                      

Unfortunately the cold deep freeze weather continues here in our communities. It is important that our children’s safety be our number one concern, so with that in mind we will dismiss early today and do a two hour late tomorrow morning, Thursday,12 January. Please dress your students warmly each morning. Next week there is supposed to be a heat wave, temperatures in the 40s. So hopefully, we will get back on schedule as we are trying to get all our students finished with the winter testing. The Boys’ Basketball schedule is on the back of this note. The wake services for Annie Walks Out will be held Saturday and Sunday the 13th & 14th of January with the funeral on Monday the 16th of January@ 10:00 am @ AHS.
