****School Canceled Due to Weather 3-10-22****Because of the weather predicted overnight into tomorrow, I have decided to CANCEL SCHOOL for tomorrow, Thursday, the 10th. With the forecast calling for heavy winter precipitation, I would rather give parents plenty of notice to make plans and err on the side of caution for students and staff traveling to and from school. Knowing the impact canceling school has on the families and community, this decision was not made lightly. Enjoy your day, stay safe and warm!
****Update on Snow and Road Conditions**** 3-7-2022 We have had staff driving and have reported snow-packed and slick areas on roads. Because of unsafe road conditions, I have decided to CANCEL SCHOOL for today Monday, March 7th. Side streets and gravel roads have not been cleared and. I know the impact of canceling school. This decision was not made lightly. Enjoy your day, stay safe and warm!
***2 HOUR DELAYED START FOR MONDAY MARCH 7th, 2020*** Due to the weather today and current road conditions, we will be starting school on a 2 HOUR DELAY for Monday, March 7th, 2022 to allow for the roads crews to treat them. McCormick Elementary will start at 10:10. High School and Middle School will start at 10:15 There is NO MORNING PRE-SCHOOL session. The afternoon Pre-school session will go on as scheduled. Be safe and allow extra time as you travel to school. There will be NO BREAKFAST served. I will monitor the road conditions overnight and if needed make the call to cancel in the morning. Be safe, Stay warm!
***Message from Superintendent*** 3-1-22 Good afternoon, As you may be aware, the CDC has updated their guidance to a mask optional policy while riding on or driving school transportation (buses). USD 384 is moving to a masking optional policy with regard to school transportation to reflect the guidance of the CDC. If a student is symptomatic (coughing, sneezing, etc) we are still recommending that those students wear a mask while riding to protect those around them. #RAMFAM
***Message from Superintendent *** 2-17-22 Hi RAMFAM! Starting next Tuesday, February 22nd, students and staff will be provided with more options for lunch. At MES lunch will include a hot meal option or a specialty salad option that will rotate through different salads. At BVMS/BVHS students will have a hot meal option, a student favorites option (rotating between cheeseburger, pizza, and other options), and a salad bar option. The fruit and salad bar will go back to normal at both locations with some portions pre-packaged to make it easier for students to grab and go. It's a great day to be a RAM!
