Good afternoon.  Short week.  Short update.  Lucky you.

Early Release is next Wednesday (12:20). There will be no Homework Group on that day.  We also have two field trips next week: Grade 5 on Wednesday & Grades 7th/8th Band on Friday.  Remember that if you would like to volunteer or chaperone, you will need to first be fingerprinted AND attend a brief (15-20) orientation.

If you have a chance, take in the high school’s production of “Oliver!”  You will see about 30 of our middle schoolers on stage along side their elder thespians.  Shows run at 7:00pm on November 10, 11, 17, & 18. Ticket information is available on our website.

Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD), a viral illness, has been diagnosed in the district in both the elementary and middle school.  If your child has a sore throat or fever, please keep them home for 24 hours after these symptoms have been resolved.  Children with blisters should be kept home until blisters dry.  Follow this link to the CDC website for more information.  If you have concerns or questions, please contact your child’s pediatrician, or the school nurse at 527-9814, or email Beth Haddock.

Lastly, follow this link for the agenda for Tuesday morning’s school district policy meeting.

Thank you, and especially to those who have served (and continue to serve) our country in one of the branches of our military.
