Hot Weather Means Popsicles!
To limit the student's and staff exposure to heat inside the building, the school releases early on days when temperatures climb above 90 degrees.
In an effort to keep cool and get occasional mask breaks, students in the elementary have been enjoying popsicles. (staff, too!) Thanks to everyone who has donated them including School Board member Pat Schymanski and former teacher Barb Sandy!
We're looking forward to air-conditioning in the new building!

Access Points: Total cost: $161,502- Erate covered $96,901
Switches: Total cost: $177,376- Erate covered $106,425
