VETERANS - THANK YOU for your service! You are our heros!

This is a reminder that we have Parent/Teacher Conferences from 3:00 - 7:00 PM tomorrow (Thursday) and 8:00 - 11:00 AM (Friday). Although the calendar shows a 1 hour early dismissal for Thursday, this was under the assumption we were running a normal schedule. Since we're currently running a 1 hour early dismissal everyday, Thursday's dismissal will be at 1:45 for the Middle School, 1:50 for the High School, and 2:00 for the Primary School. I'm sorry for any confusion the calendar may have created for you. Students have no school on Friday. Also, a reminder that next Tuesday has also been declared a state holiday this year and we were unable to waive that day, so students will also be out next Tuesday, November 3rd. Please reach out to our teaching staff to schedule an in-person or remote conference. They're eager to hear from you. Sincerely, Dr. Todd Hellrigel
Hello Raiders, We've had our numbers of positive COVID cases and students required to quarantine rise at the high school over the weekend. Because of the large number of students that will be excluded we're moving to remote learning at the high school only until November 9th. High school students with IEPs will continue to attend school in-person unless they're required to quarantine. Both the primary school and middle school will continue with in-person learning as normal. High school students are expected to complete their remote work and grades will be taken on assignments. Teachers will be available to help students virtually between 8:00 AM -3:00 PM each day. It's important to understand that we're doing this as a precautionary measure to mitigate the threat of further spread at the high school. We've also been able to confirm that we've not had any COVID cases thus far that can be attributed to in-person learning. Breakfast and lunch will be available via delivery and students have been asked to sign up for delivery. Parent/Teacher conferences at the high school will still be available via phone or technology. Please reach out to your student's teachers to schedule a conference. The primary and middle school conferences will continue as planned. Our remote instruction will begin tomorrow (Tuesday) and students will return to in-person learning Monday, November 9th. Sincerely, Dr. Todd Hellrigel

Hello Raiders, Midwest Central will again be offering a flu shot clinic this fall. For your convenience, Primary School students will have the necessary papers sent home to fill out. Middle School students can pick up the packet at the nurses office and High School students can pick up the packet at the main office counter. If you have questions, please contact our nurses at either the Primary School or High School, and they'll be happy to assist you. Very Best, Todd Hellrigel, Ed.D.
Reminder - Tomorrow is a 1/2 day for students. Dismissal times are: 11:20 MS dismissal, 11:30 HS dismissal, and 11:40 PS dismissal.
Hello Raiders, This is a reminder that we need to have health records for all students (remote and in-person) by October 15th. As of today we will have to exclude students from school beginning October 16th if we do not have the appropriate records. This is a state law we have to comply with. If you have questions or need to speak with someone, please call your student's school and ask to speak to the nurse. Primary School 309.968.6464 Middle School 309.352.2300 High School 309.968.6766 Best Regards, Todd Hellrigel, Ed.D.
