As an incentive for the second quarter of school, students who do not miss more than one day and have no more than one tardy for the quarter will attend a movie with popcorn and pop, free of charge. Encourage your children to earn this incentive.

Please check your child’s hair frequently for lice. If you need assistance, please call the office or the Osage County Health Department. Remind children not to share brushes, headbands, blankets, get close to other’s hair, etc to help in preventing the spreading of lice.

The anti-bullying app “Stop-It” has been presented to the students in grades 5-12. This is an anonymous way for students or parents to report bullying. They can download the app to a mobile device or go to the website to make a report.

Please encourage your students to be kind, respectful and responsible. We are continuing to work on positive behavior as well at school.
