 Attention Freshmen and Sophomores:

We are working on forming a group of Freshmen and Sophomores to create an ISTEP (Iowa Students for Tobacco Education and Prevention) group.  This group will form a committee to provide education to students and children in Ida County about the effects of tobacco.  Here is a website providing more information https://www.iowastep.org/.  Join our group to "Kick butts" and raise awareness of the effects of tobacco and health.  This is a student led adult supported group supported by Tiffany (school nurse) and Mrs. Dooley.  If you are interested in joining please, contact one of us and we will figure out meeting dates and time.

Technology News:

Chromebooks should be in your case at all times AND they should be carried at all times (no one should put them in a backpack).  **ANY staff member can/will remind you of this.

Defacement of the case or device will result in a full replacement fine to the student/family.  For example, if you have written on, or poked holes in your case (such as in the clear plastic where your case ID card is displayed) that is destruction of school property! Families will be notified and charged. 

Any damage to your device or defects/problems with your case (such as a handle that has come un-sewed) needs to be turned in.  If the issues are not dealt with then they could result in a fee back to you/your family.  Please make sure you are reporting issues with your Chromebook or issues with your case so that Mrs. Weeda may get them fixed.
