Quarter 3 Report Cards Come Home This Week
A special thank you to Ms. Boomgaarden and all of our FFA students for organizing activities throughout the week. It was a great way for students to learn more about what FFA is and all that it has to offer.
On Friday our teachers attended in-service with a focus on the Science of Behavior and strategies and best practices in working with our students. Joe Fjette, SWWC Cooperative, worked with our staff and we appreciated this time to develop professionally. Teachers also worked on finishing up quarter 3 grading and posting for this quarter. We will be sending report cards home towards the end of this week. As a reminder, there is no school on Friday, March 17th.
Thank you everyone.

We have had 3 late starts so far this year. Our next late start we would start with period 1 and then students will transition to period 4 and follow the regular schedule.
If the cancellation is before the start of the school day, notice of that cancellation will be issued and relayed to the local radio stations, KWAT, KDLO and KIXX in Watertown. Also cable television stations KELO, KSFY, and KDLT. We encourage you to listen to radio and television stations for the announcements concerning school dismissal. The announcements will also be posted on the district's Facebook page. I have this link posted below for you. Make sure to follow us for weather updates. Our district also uses a School REACH call to inform parents/guardians of early out, late start, and no school.
