The past couple of days days have been very stressful with all of the wind, near record storm surges and rain! However, the school was spared much of the damage. We do have some debris on the playground and on the lower road leading to the the school. After looking at the overall situation with regard to having school tomorrow, I have decided that the positive factors outweigh the negative ones. We will have school as usual tomorrow. However, students will not be using any outside play areas (basketball court and playgrounds), until the area has been cleared of the debris. I would also urge everyone to be especially cautious when driving or walking on the lower road in particular. Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow! :)
I want to urge everyone to use extreme caution during the upcoming storm! Children, in particular should be indoors during the high winds, as they can literally be blown aware or be dragged along the ground and severely injured. Widespread flooding is also a very real possibility. Stay away from low lying areas and be aware of flying wind blown objects As well as downed power lines. Be prepared for possible power outages as well! At this time, we are still scheduled for a regular school day on Monday. If that changes, we will everyone know. (Nacquq) Jim Have a safe weekend and make the most of this possible storm of the decade.
We will be having our first post COVID community picnic starting at 12:00pm tomorrow! The lunch will consist of hamburgers, Hotdogs, corn and fruit salad. Coffee, punch, coffee and water will be available to quench your thirst!! Before the picnic we will have an assembly to welcome everyone here and to hand out Student of the Month awards for August! The assembly will start at 11:30. Students will be free to go home after the picnic. We are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow! Nacquq(Jim)
I am sending out a reminder to everyone that we are on a Friday schedule today, as we will not have school tomorrow nor on Monday. We will be having fun Thursday after school from 2:00-3:00 for those who have perfect attendance for the week and were not tardy. Enjoy the Labor Day weekend!! Nacquq (Jim)

Just a reminder that at noon tomorrow (Thursday), we will be having our end of the year community picnic at the school. It will start at noon and consist of hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and Tang or water.
The water has been shut off on the West side and so the school is without running water, Which means no restroom facilities or water to wash dishes. We will be dismissing students at 12:30. Hopefully water will be restored in time for our last day of school tomorrow. We will send out another announcement when we receive new information.
