Student Safety/Lock Down Training

Wednesday, May 9 from 12:30 – 3:30, Waylon Pollema will be coming to do safety/lock down training with individual classrooms.  Parents are welcome to come and observe also.  If you have more questions, please contact school.


In light of recent & past events in schools in our country, we are going through ALICE training with staff/faculty on April 11, and with students on May 9.  The board feels this is a very important issue for our staff to be trained with the most recent training available from the Sioux County Sheriffs Officer Waylon Pollema (school resource office).  We will therefore be dismissing at 12:15 on April 11 for staff/faculty training.  Sorry for the inconvenience. 


Our board is also looking at a security system being installed at our doors, especially the main entrance.  Thanks, Mr. Schoonhoven




Upcoming order dates are: April 9 (last order before cutoff), May 7.

Just a reminder that April 9 will be the last order before the Trip payout.

TRIP Order form can be printed off the school website if you need one.

Orders need to be in the TRIP box in the school office or given to Donna Koopmans by 8:30 AM on order dates in your family envelopeNo late orders will be taken. Do not fax or call orders to my house – money needs to accompany orders or they will not be processed. Please try to remind your child to bring the order to their teacher or the office right away when they get to school, so that orders will not be forgotten or late.
