FREE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH FOR STUDENTS!!! FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 04, 2020 We have some FANTASTIC news! The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced that they will be providing free breakfast and lunch to all students until further notice. This applies to all students in our district. So starting September 8th if your child chooses to have school breakfast and/or lunch, they will not be charged. We are uncertain of how long this incentive will take place, so you are still encouraged to turn in the Meal Application if you haven’t done so already for those who are wanting to. If you have already put money in your child’s account, their balances will remain the same until the incentive is over. When this incentive ends, we will make sure that we give families adequate notice.

All students planning to participate in athletics or activities are required to complete a Pre-Participation Form for MSHSAA participation. This can be turned into the school on that particular student’s first day of practice. This form can be found on the school’s website.

Therefore, if you received a new physical last year (Summer 2019), it is good for the entire 2020-2021 school year. Others will need an updated physical PRIOR to the first day of participation.
HS Band: There will be NO band activities the week of August 4-8. A revised schedule for August 11-19 will be mailed and emailed to parents either this weekend or at the start of next week.
