If you are not returning to Deretchin/McCullough for the 2020-2021 school year please email Cory Ognisty (Registrar) at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email include your child/s Student Id number(not their name) and where your child will be attending. This can be what country, state or name of the school. Current 6th graders not attending McCullough next year, please let me know, so I can withhold records sent to McCullough, otherwise this will delay records requests for your new school.

How Can We Be a Good Friend During Virtual Learning?
- Smile and say "Hi"! How? By calling, Face Time, or social media! The great news is that we DO have a lot of ways to keep in touch. You could make a sign or create a sidewalk chalk message and take a picture to send to a friend Choose a friend you haven't talked to and find a way to connect this week!
- Listen - A good friend listens first. When we interrupt and talk about ourselves, we are telling that friend that you are more important than they are.
- Remember the "Golden Rule"! Treat others the way you want to be treated!
THE FRIENDSHIP CHALLENGE
From Nurse Bruner
We have recently had some really nice weather, but we all know the heat is coming. While everyone is at home I am sure we are spending more time outdoors and I have attached some resources to help protect you and your family from the heat and sun. I hope that during this time everyone is doing well and staying healthy. Have a great day.
