Dress Code reminder: with the warmer weather around the corner, please refer to the school dress code to determine what is school appropriate:

14. Dress Code: Clothing and/or grooming shall not distract from the educational process or interfere with the health standards or safety conditions of the school. The dress code also applies to clothing worn for physical education classes. Parent/Guardians may be required to bring in a change of clothes if a student is dressed inappropriately. This includes, but is not limited to the following:

Clothing too tight, too loose, or too short. Shorts or skirts must extend beyond the fingertips of the student when they are standing straight up with their feet together.

Clothing that is not neat, clean, and socially appropriate for the gender of the student.

Skin may not show through if there are holes in pants.

Bodysuits, tank tops, halter-tops, see-through shirts or blouses, cut off clothes, plunging necklines and tops exposing the midriff. Short sleeve shirts must cover the entire top of the shoulder to be acceptable.

Attention students that walk or ride bikes to school:  There should be absolutely NO ONE cutting between the Grain Elevator buildings before or after school. This is extremely dangerous with farm machinery traveling in and out.  You should only be using sidewalks to and from school.  Thank you!

Attendance update:

State attendance laws are changing and that will necessitate the school  change the way we respond to tardy and absent students. Parents will receive attendance letters from the school once a child has missed 38 hours of school in a month or 65 hours in a year. This letter will be sent if the absence is excused or unexcused. The school and the parent will be required to meet and develop  a plan for improvement in school attendance. If the attendance does not improve, then a court referral will take place.
