School Announcements
A message from Dr. Dial regarding March 4
Unfortunately the timing of weather this morning did not follow the forecasted predictions and you as well as our busses had to deal with poor road conditions.  For that I apologize to all of you.  Fortunately, the weather will be ending shortly as predicted, and we will be fine to have a full day of school today. This will also allow for crews to work on the roads in order for them to be in good shape for the commute home.  Please be patient this afternoon if your child is riding a bus home as our drivers will be taking it slow and cautious.  On a another note, we have made the decision to cancel Club Liberator today so busses are not on the roads after dark.  If your child attends Club Liberator, our after school program, please contact your child’s school to arrange alternate transportation home.
Dr. Jason Dial, Superintendent of Schools
