Inclement weather.  As the season continues to progress, cold weather and the chance for inclement weather are increasing.  We will make every effort to make decisions related to school cancellation, late starts, or early dismissals as timely and effectively as possible.  We will post announcements to our website, Facebook page, Twitter feed, the local TV and radio stations, in addition to sending automated e-mails and phone calls to families that have given us their contact information.  Parents, please remember the final decision is always yours.  If you feel your student should stay home due to weather or other reasons, please keep your student home and call your school office.  If you believe you have not been receiving school messages, please call one of the school offices to confirm your contact information.  

Fall athletics.  Congratulations to all students, families, coaches, and sponsors involved in fall athletics and activities.  Football, volleyball, and cross country all had tremendous seasons filled with success and lessons of perseverance, hard work, and determination.  Marching band and flag squad also had another season of making us all proud to wear black and gold!  As we move into winter athletics and activities, please remember the lessons our students learn related to: sportsmanship, hard work, teamwork, dedication, perseverance, and countless other lessons.  These are far more important than wins and losses.  Work hard, play hard, cheer hard, and make us proud, Trojans!

As always please call, email, or stop by one of the school offices if you have questions.  Thank you for the privilege to work with and serve your students and community, it is an honor I take very seriously.


Dr. Tony Weers, Ed.D.
