Beauty and Rough Edges
Pictured above is one of my planters-there are beautiful flowers blooming even though my container is a little rough around the edges. When I watered my flowers last night, I thought of school. There are so many great things happening in our classrooms, but the start of the school year has been stressful and demanding for the staff. We are working through quite a process of not having all of the items that were ordered, trying to confirm what has and has not been ordered, and trying to learn EVERY subject of new curriculum.
The patience of the students and staff as we work through this process is absolutely amazing! I commend both groups for handling things with grace and patience and for having such great attitudes. The effects of the fire continue even though we are back in the building--thank you for your continued support as we all work through this process. We truly appreciate it!
Breakfast and Lunch
I would like to thank the families that have donated fresh produce, including sweet corn, and locally raised beef. These additions to the menu are delicious, and all of us are enjoying the meals very much.
Thank you so much for your generosity!!
Student Illness and Covid Protocol
Thank you for communicating with us when your child is ill. We have updated Covid protocol--
1. A student/staff member needs to stay home from school if that person has Covid for 5 days from symptom onset. A person can only come back after that five days if he/she is symptom free. If you have questions, please call an administrator at the school.
2. We are not tracking close contacts.
Junior Class Prom Fundraiser
The junior class will be offering face painting to students. They will be doing this on Homecoming Rustler Day (Friday, September 23rd) in the armory from 7:45 to 8:30 AM.
The cost is $2 per student for a design.
Eye black only will be $1 per student.
(They will be in Rustler colors, please try and make it easy by sending your child with the correct amount of $)
