Today a STAY INSIDE safety protocol was implemented at all of our schools in response to heavy police presence near Reavis Elementary School. This procedure has been lifted as the police vacated the area; however, students will remain indoors the rest of the school day as a precaution. Dismissals will proceed as normal with administrative and police presence (uniformed and/or undercover) at our buildings.

This morning a smell of gas was identified at Memorial Junior High School due to a malfunctioning part on a snowblower. Our maintenance staff have been performing preventative work in anticipation of the upcoming winter months. We are currently drawing and distributing additional fresh air into the building to dissipate the smell, as well as temporarily relocating rooms as needed. All students and staff are safe. Please contact the office with any questions.

Students are required to follow the direction of their PE teacher, which includes having a change of PE clothing (shorts, sweatpants, t-shirt, sweatshirt) for class. For those who recently ordered through the online store, uniforms should arrive by next Friday, 9/22. Until uniforms arrive, students change into their choice of appropriate clothing for PE class (shorts, sweatpants, t-shirt, sweatshirt). If students are not changing for class into their appropriate clothing (personal clothing or uniform), their grade will be marked down. A lack of PE uniform does not exempt students from participation in changing or being active in class. Please contact your child's PE teacher or the main office if you have any questions. An additional cycle of the online store will start on Friday, 9/15 through Friday, 9/29. Uniforms will take approximately 2 weeks to arrive for this cycle.
