We have had a great start to the school year even with the warm temperatures. At the end of the day Tuesday, we experienced a partial power outage that caused some problems with our HVAC units today. All of the classroom units are now functioning and we are currently working on the cafeteria and kitchen units. At this point we are planning to follow our normal dismissal time for the remainder of the week. An early release time was considered, but the forecasted temperature is only a few degrees warmer from 11 am to 4 pm and therefore would not provide much benefit. The bus ride home is our biggest concern for our students and bus drivers. If you are able to pick up your students Thursday and Friday, we would appreciate you doing so to shorten our bus routes as much as possible. Please communicate any changes from normal pickup routines to your child’s building office by 2:00 pm daily.

Our entire staff was able to attend the Lincoln County Resource Board funded “Emotional Poverty” presentation today by renowned educator, researcher and author Dr. Ruby Payne. We are also thankful for the sponsorship of Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Missouri, for its contributions to this initiative and Lincoln County’s Bridges Out of Poverty work, which began with Toyota’s sponsorships in 2020 and 2021. It was a great way for the county to intentionally start the 2023-2024 school year.
