There will be regular pick-up at Pawnee Park in Columbus. Routes for Tony Hernbloom (Dragon) and Susan Doehling (Cow) will stay with the location pickup and drop-off plans for the remainder of the week as was released on Sunday. We are monitoring road conditions near Duncan (Chicken Bus). We will drop off at AJ’s as planned tonight, but please pay attention to announcements that may come out this evening. A reminder that Wednesday, March 20th is a full day of school, the early dismissal was cancelled. I want to encourage all parents/staff to download our mobile application. This is the best way for us to get detailed information out. We will be phasing out school messenger, so only parents or immediate guardians will be receiving phone messages when that happens. If you have extended family or others who need school information please have them download our school application in the Apple Store or the Google Play Store. If you don’t have a smart phone we will still send you text messages and phone calls if you are a parent or staff member. The new District website will be tied to the mobile application and will have the same information available.
CRC Medalists include: Eli Noyd (bass) Alyssa Blohm (alto) Connor Morrison (percussion) CONGRATS!!!

I want to extend my heartfelt thoughts and concerns for those families impacted by the flooding in the area and recognize that we may have families who have much bigger priorities right now. Our District will have school on Friday, March 15th and we realize that many of you near Columbus and Duncan may not be able to attend. Please contact the school in the morning and notify them of the absence, this also allows us to check and be sure all of the families in our school are safe. We will run alternate bus routes due to the condition and uncertainty of the county roads. We are unable to run bus routes to Duncan or Columbus, here is the morning pick-up schedule: Darrol Gray (Chicken) - 7:25 to 7:30 Lone Star Jon Rasmussen (Horse) - 7:25 to 7:30 7-Mile Restaurant Tony Hernbloom (Dragon) - Regular Pickup Times in Rising City Plus extra pickup at Cornerstone Bank in Rising City from 7:25 to 7:30 for those coming in from out of town. Susan Doehling (Cow) - Cornerstone Bank in Rising City from 7:25 to 7:30 and then regular pickup times in Shelby. Drivers will wait as long as possible to ensure everyone is picked up. You may drive your students to school yourself or exercise the right to keep them home since some road conditions may not have improved as much as others. Absences are not waived and students should make arrangements to get work digitally if at all possible. The after school schedule will be sent out during the day on Friday.
