ISD 2906, Red Lake County Central SchoolsSchool District News, by Superintendent Guetter
Happy New Year!
The school website is located at http://www.r1cc2906.org and has a lot of additional school information for families and students. The biggest changes since school let out last spring has been with some facility improvements at both schools. At the Elementary school, four classrooms received a new coat of pain and new carpet, and the south wing/gymnasium restrooms have undergone a fall remodel and will now be handicap accessible as well. At the High School, We have replaced some exterior doors, locker room painting, flooring and plumbing, Sound boards and sports signage in the gym, cafeteria flooring, and some changes in the office area.
Enrollment is holding steady with the number of K-12 students over the last five years fluctuating between 370 and 383. The Sports Boosters are lining up workers for the winter season, contact the school for information on how to join. Please get involved as they help provide many opportunities for our students-athletes as well as other activities. They also provide financial support to families and students in the form of partial reimbursement for activity fees ($15 per activity fee) and for camp costs with reimbursement up to $50 per student per sport or activity. And I'd like to also mention they do a lot of things to help with the overall quality of the programs for our students. Sports Booster membership is for all parents of 7-12th graders once your child begins to participate in any of the High School activities such as Speech, Theatre, Knowledge Bowl or any of the sports, then you are a member and are expected to work.
For your Attention:
PLEASE MAKE A SPECIAL EFFORT TO FILL OUT AND RETURN YOUR FREE AND REDUCED LUNCH APPLICATIONS BY OCTOBER 1. Why I am asking this is;
1. Yes for your own benefit, and the price of breakfast and lunches for your children. New this year is that any student that Qualifies for the "reduced" meal will actually receive a free meal. The State a. roved this in the last le islative session alon with coverin all Kinder arten students the same as any other student. This means for breakfast and lunch they receive a free meal.
Therefore, please fill out and return the forms to either school site. If you would like assistance in filling out the form, please call either school and we can help you. All information is confidential. If you have any questions, please call the school or stop in.
One more thing, with the the end of our holiday break, do your kids a favor and help them get prepared to get back into the schedule for school. Things like bed times and wake up times, schedule changes, doctor and dentist appointments taken care of and to just talk to them about the upcoming school year, their friends and teachers. Thank you for taking time to do these two things.
