Although the calendar says March and Spring are nearly here, the the harsh reality we are faced with tells us we still have at least a few more weeks of winter ahead. I had hoped I would be able to remove the Weather Reminders information from my monthly letter but I am going to leave it for one more month based on our most recent cold outbreak.
END of 3rd QUARTER: Friday, March 7 is the end of the 3rd quarter. We will have a 2:30 dismissal on that day. We hope to send report cards home with students before Spring Break.
SPRING BREAK: We will not have school on March 13th and 14th. Hoepfully the weather will cooperate and we will be able to enjoy some nice spring weather!
STATE TESTING: Coming up in the month of April, we will begin doing our yearly testing for 6th-8th grades. You will be recieving more specifics about this as we get closer to April.
TAKING A's SERIOUSLY (TAS): As the 3rd quarter is coming to a close, it also means it is time for us to begin thinking about our annual TAS breakfast to honor our qualifying students. Qualifying stuents will be notified after Spring Break and will receive details about the breakfast at that time.
During times of inclement weather it may become necessary to delay the
start of the school day, send students home early, or even close the school
entirely until the weather subsides and it is deemed safe for travel. These weather-related modifications to the
school day will be relayed to you in a number of ways: School Reach, TV
Stations (KSFY, KELO, KDLT, & KTTW), Radio Stations (KXRB, KELO, &
WNAX), and our Website (lennox.k12.sd.us).
Please take some time now, before snow flies, to review your plans for
weather-related closures and delays with your children. Additionally, please make sure your children
are coming to school with adequate winter apparel. During the coldest days of the year, students
will not be going outside during the school day. However, we may allow them to go outside
after lunch on some of the nicer winter days if they have the proper
apparel. Finally, the doors to the
Middle School will not be open until after 7:30am. Please plan your morning drop off times
accordingly, especially this winter.
