From the Desk of Mr. Tiemann

Have you noticed the front entrance of our building lately? The new plants, flowers, trees, and landscaping look AMAZING!!! A HUGE THANK YOU to our PTO Beautification Committee for all of their time and efforts with weeding and digging out old plants; applying for grants to help fund this project; and planting and maintaining our entrance area! We even have a rain barrel installed to help water our new plants and flowers! Thank you so much! It really looks GREAT!!!

First, our cafeteria food served in our ‘hot lunch’ line will now be peanut-free! We are no longer serving any peanut butter sandwiches or peanut-based products. (There will still be sunflower seeds available on the salad bar).

Second, our Food Service Department is offering a new Birthday Treat option to all families. Please see the flyer attached for more information.

Finally, we are creating a New Allergy Table Option in our Cafetorium. Students with severe food allergies will still have the option to sit at our Allergy Table; or they can choose to sit at the “Red Zone” (which is a Nut Free area of our cafeteria tables) along with a “Yellow Zone” where friends with safe lunches can eat. This will allow our students to feel like they are part of their class and not segregated from everyone, while still sitting at a safe section of the table.

Please Help Prevent the Spread of Sickness, Head Lice, etc...

Parents: We have had one confirmed case of the enterovirus, and several reported cases of Head Lice this week. The best way to prevent the spread of sickness, communicable diseases, or issues such as head lice is to take preventative steps at home prior to sending your child to school. Please also contact the office right away to let us know of any sickness or confirmed case of lice that your child may have. For more ‘health’ related information, please visit the State Road website and select “Student Health Info” under the Information Tab. Thank you!

Please visit the "Student Health Information" section of our website (link below) for more information!
