A message from Mr. Burgess plus Weekly News and School Closings

Students, Parents, Faculty and Staff –

Due to the severe cold weather this week, we have rescheduled many of our school activities.  Please pay close attention to our school calendar (located on our website – for the latest updates.
As we have been monitoring the forecast for tonight through Thursday afternoon, we have been told to expect some of the coldest conditions that we have seen in decades.  Travel will be dangerous due to the cold air and blowing snow.
Therefore, for the safety and well-being of everyone in our school community, we have cancelled school and all school activities for Wednesday, January 30.  
These conditions are expected to continue through noon on Thursday, so we have also cancelled school for Thursday, January 31.  Conditions are expected to improve later Thursday afternoon.  We will wait until Thursday to determine evening activities.  Again, please check our website calendar for the latest updates.
As in all weather-related situations, we respect the rights of parents to determine if it is safe for their children to participate in and attend school activities.  We only ask that you keep good communication with us in these situations.
The latest Weekly News is attached.  Weekly News – January 29, 2019 – PDF It contains an updated Lutheran Schools Week schedule – with date revisions into next week – and many other important announcements.
Be safe, and join me in praying for an early spring!
Dave Burgess
Executive Director-Principal
