Dr. Rath's Corner

Hello Wildcat Families!

Greetings from the Wildcat House! Students are doing an amazing job about being responsible and safe while following our Family 3/2 model. We are so proud of our Wildcats. Students are wearing their masks, bringing their iPads + charger, and backpack daily. Students are so happy to be back in the classroom with their teachers. Thank you parents/guardians for helping make our student return a success.

Our first ever, virtual parent teacher conferences took place the last two days. Thank you parents for being so flexible, patient and positive during our new conference format. Quarter 2 begins on Monday, October 19th. Students A-K attend in person M-W and L-Z on Thursday and Friday. Remember all students join class daily, beginning at 7:40 AM and follow their schedule all day long.

Health and Safety Link for Covid-19 protocol: SEE my link below.

Have a great long weekend!

Take care,

Dr. Rath, Principal

Attendance is being taken in every class, every day, for all students regardless if they are in-person or remote learners. If your student will be absent, even for remote learning, please contact the school's attendance secretary before 7:40 a.m. by calling 531-299-2389. If you leave a voicemail, please include your student's name and the reason for the absence.

Regular school attendance is crucial to the development and education of students. Daily engagement will ensure students are on track and prepared, especially as we look toward a return to in-person learning when it is possible. We expect all of our students to arrive on time every day to every class. We appreciate your partnership and support!

Important Note from the School Nurse Mrs. Anderson


It is important to have students compliant with Nebraska's immunization requirements for school age children. Please be sure the school nurse has the most up-to-date immunization records. Please note, the state regulations are for all students regardless of whether they are participating in school in person or remotely.

Also, Nebraska requires physical exams for students entering 7th grade and physical exams including a vision exam for students transferring in from out of state.

Parents/Guardians can call the school nurse at 531-299-2381 if assistance is needed with obtaining the necessary vaccination.
