Our EMS Student Council did a great job honoring Veterans today. Many people made today possible. Thank you Mrs. Turner and Mrs. Braden for organizing the event and all of the Stuco members for their assistance. Thank you Mrs. Cooper and the EHS band for playing multiple songs. Thank you Mrs. Heras and the Treblemakers honor choir for performing. Thank you for preparing the extra special breakfast for our Veterans and their students. Thank you Jed Heras for your trumpet solo playing taps. One last special thank you to our SRO Julie Conner for giving a speech during the assembly discussing the history of the day and what it means to be a Veteran.
We would like to honor our own Veteran that serves the ESD daily. We are honored to have Veteran and SRO Julie Conner in the building. If you see SRO Conner make sure you tell her thank you her service in the United States Army 31B Military Police from Jan. 2007- July 2017.
Today around 11:00 am, utility crews working near the school campus hit a water line. Once this happened, all of our buildings experienced a drop in water pressure. This drop in water pressure caused difficulty with our toilets flushing properly. School officials were in contact with the City of Elsberry and the city was aware of the problem and had crews starting to work on the issue. After a few hours most of our toilets were no longer flushing and the decision was made to send students home early because of the lack of usable bathrooms. The water line was fixed this afternoon and all of our facilities are back working properly. The school and surrounding areas of the city will be under a water boil advisory for Thursday and Friday. We will have school and we ask that students bring a water bottle from home as our water fountains will be closed. Thanks for your understanding with this unusual situation.
