Message from the Mayor Thank you to everyone for your patience this morning. Also a big thanks go out to our local police department and a couple of volunteer parents. Here are a couple thoughts for you: 1. No child will be considered tardy these first few days. If you are in line with your kids, keep them in the car until you are near the school. 2. This will go smoother if your kids are ready to get out of your car when you approach the drop off zone. 3. Please consider letting your kids exit the car when you stop anywhere in the two drop off zones. You do not need to be right in front of the door. The goal is for four cars to let their kids out at a time. 4. If your child is older please consider dropping them on the east side. 5. If you drop off on the east side please consider turning left and leaving through the alley. This step will keep the empty cars from having to jam up the drop off zone. 6. I know the snow and ice is a problem. I have asked the street department to salt the street today and tomorrow. 7. If you park and walk your kids in please park in an orderly fashion in the parking lot. Make sure that others can enter and leave the lot. Thank you all again. I have received word from several parents and if you have a suggestion please call or message me at MayorMarcusK@gmail or 308-529-0430.

From Mrs. Heimann 3rd grade class: "Our year is winding down with AR and I am impressed with these kids! They have read a total of 4, 208, 353 words! It’s been a joy to see them grow this year and go from short picture books to full novels. They are the definition of #strongertogether through the way they held each other accountable and cheered each other on. I can’t wait to see you continue to grow! -Mrs. Heimann “

There are multiple illnesses going around among our students and staff. Here are some important points to remember: · Fever is considered a temperature of 100° F or over. State guidelines are: no school until 24 hours fever free WITHOUT the use fever-reducing medication. Students need to stay out of school 24 hours after throwing up or having diarrhea. Contact your health care provider if there are symptoms of influenza (sudden onset fever, chills, severe body aches, headache, chest discomfort). There are medications that can be helpful to your family but they need to be started within a certain time period. Sooner is better. Stay home when sick, avoid close contact with sick people, avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth, WASH your hands! Disinfect shared surfaces frequently. If your child misses school due to illness, they should not be at activities that evening. Please keep your children home when they are sick. Giving them medicine and sending them to school exposes not only the other students in the classroom but the teaching staff as well. Thank you!
