I hope this is not the “New Normal”: Everywhere you go there are shortage of workers. Public schools are no different. The teacher shortage is very real and very challenging. We are dealing with those shortages as best we can. Coaching is another place where there are shortages. We have several openings listed below. Finding help with running extra-curricular activities is another issue. For the first time since I can remember we were unable to get enough help to run a junior high track meet this year. Other schools are having the same issues with getting help. Several schools who normally host a track meet could not get volunteers to work therefore the number of track meets has dwindled. Whether it is sports at school, AAU sports, 4H, or the county fair: parents who want their kids to have the same opportunities they had need to step up! We get closer and closer all the time to cancelling more events due to the lack of help running those events. If there is anything you can do to help please contact the office. We are already planning for next year and will need help with tickets, line judging, score books, score clocks, shot clocks, etc. Forfeiting games or cancelling games are becoming more of a reality without help from parents and community.
New Teacher looking for housing: We are trying to find housing for one of our new teaching hires. He is a single male with no pets. Housing is a huge issue everywhere so if anyone knows of anything please contact the school 644-2206.
Coaching Positions Available: We still have several coaching positions open and could use some help! Currently we Junior High Volleyball, Assistant High School Volleyball, Junior High Football: if you have any interest in any of these positions please contact Steve Love at 644-2206 ext 230 or email him [email protected].
Lunch and Breakfast: Please pay your student’s breakfast and lunch bills. Letters went out this week and we want to do our best to work with families during these tough economic times. We can see about setting up payment plans. We are also set up to pay via credit or debit card through Infinite Campus. If you have questions please contact the office 644-2206.
