We need to start off by saying THANK YOU for your cooperation during our first early release of this school year for professional development. We have five (5) more scheduled this school year to address our improvement plan. Our students and staff are working diligently to address areas of need. We have two early releases scheduled in November. The first one is Friday, November 6th with the second one being Tuesday November 24th prior to Thanksgiving break. Students will be released two hours early on both of those dates.
Besides getting prepared for our state – wide testing requirement, we have spent considerable time with our Crisis Management Plan . We have Training Specifics out of Hubbard working with staff and students. We have received a great deal of positive feedback.
Our next step in the process is to have practice drills under the direction of Training Specifics. Your children’s safety is our number one concern and although time consuming, we believe these drills are extremely beneficial. We will have a more detailed explanation forthcoming concerning the process.
Lastly, even though I hate to mention it, the inclement weather is right around the corner. We would like to schedule a practice run two hour delay in the near future. Even though this is not our preference, there are days in which we could still be in school and the students will benefit if we did institute a two hour delay. We will also have more information coming concerning a two hour delay practice run.
We THANK YOU once again for your continued support! GO WILDCATS!
Rocco Nero, Superintendent of Schools
