REMINDERS:

  • There will be no school or Distance-Learning days scheduled for March 18-27. This will allow teachers time to prepare longer-term online learning approaches should school closures extend beyond this initial period. 
  • All after school activities, practices, events, and building rentals are cancelled beginning Tuesday March 17, at least through March 29.  This includes all Community Education programs.

NOTE FROM NURSE SARA: I hope you all stay healthy.  Here are a couple reminders as of 3/19/20 during this COVID-19 pandemic: 

  • Remember the primary way COVID-19 is transmitted is through droplets from coughing and sneezing.  Wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your face, and keep six feet away from others.  Social distancing is maintaining a distance of 6 feet between yourself and others.
  • Stay home if you are sick!  
  • The main COVID-19 symptoms are a fever of 100 degrees or greater, cough, shortness of breath.  You may also have fatigue or body aches.  If you think you have a fever, CHECK.   If you have a cough, but no fever consider staying in your home to continue to assess if further symptoms develop. 
  • If you think you have symptoms of COVID-19 - contact your primary physician and stay home!   You must stay home until you have been without a fever for three days OR seven days from the onset of symptoms- whichever is longer.  

SENIORS – SCHOLARSHIPS:  Most scholarships are due on Friday, March 27th.  You can drop off at the school or scan them. Ms. Bartholome sent all seniors an e-mail about this as well.

PROM:  Mrs. Quam has coupons for prom dresses at David's Bridal. They are for $50 off regular priced dresses. Please see her if you would like one!

MESTAD’S: Due to the state mandated school closures over the next few weeks, Mestad’s will not be able to make it out to your high school to provide in school tuxedo bookings.  In lieu of this, we would like to emphasise the following points:

  • The $60 off discount is available when you book your formal wear in store as well.  You do not need an actual paper coupon, we have a blanket discount for all prom goers that will be offered at the time of booking.
  • We encourage students to book soon, (next couple of weeks ) to provide the best possible selection.
  • We will not require or accept pre payments on any tuxedo rentals for this prom season.
  • It is helpful at the time of booking if they have a clear picture or a color swatch if they intend to match ties, etc to a particular dress color.
  • We will still provide after prom school tuxedo pickups for those schools with 10 or more tuxedo rentals from us.
  • Mestad’s store hours are as follows:  Monday – 10am -8pm  Tuesday – Closed  Wednesday – 10am – 8pm  Thursday – 10am – 8pm  Friday – 10am – 8pm  Saturday -9am-5pm  Sunday -12pm – 5pm
