School District Notes


    Attention Students, Parents & Community Members


    2019-2020 Yearbooks will be on sale starting September 21st at the school office. Due to the closure during the 19-20 school year, yearbooks were not able to be pre-sold like in the past. These will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. Sale price is $40.




    Hello students, parents, and community members,

    As you all know things look a bit different this year because of the Covid-19 virus. Homecoming is no exception to the rule. While we exhibit our Tiger Pride, we need to adhere to guidelines provided to us by our administration and state. The safety of students, fans, and staff is a priority. With that being said, there are a few changes that myself and student council would like to address as far as homecoming festivities. 

     Coronation is to be held on Monday 9/21 at 7:00. Seniors will be distanced further apart when seated and socially distant seating will be available for family, friends, staff, and other community members. Masks will be mandatory at this event for students, staff, and spectators. You also need to maintain personal responsibility. If you are sick, stay home. If you have been exposed, stay home. Wash hands as often as possible and use hand sanitizer when handwashing is not feasible. 

     The pep rally will be held on Thursday 9/24 will be at 2:45. We will be using both sides of the gym for seating. Elementary will be on the East side of the gym and junior high and high school will be on the opposing West side of the gym. There will be marked seating for each grade level. Please sit in your assigned area maintaining safe distance between each student. Masks will be mandatory for students and staff during the pep assembly. On Thursday night, after the volleyball game we will be doing a Krush the Kougars Kar! Please attend if you would like. Students can purchase a "hit" for $1. If you plan on hitting the car, you need to provide your own helmet. Goggles will be provided and will also be mandatory. 

     The parade and floats are an event that gathers many students and community members. Personal responsibility is key to making the parade a successful and safe event for all. This means wearing masks when social distancing is not possible, maintaining a safe distance, and handwashing as often as possible. The community pep assembly that is slated to follow the homecoming parade will also be utilizing both sides of the gym. There will not be assigned seating but maintaining social distance as much as possible is asked of all participants. Masks will be required at the indoor pep assembly for all who choose to attend. 

     There will be a tailgate event sponsored by the SD National Guard and Student Council held at the football field at 5:00! We will serve burgers, hotdogs, chips, water, and a dessert for a free will donation. All are welcome to sit in the shade and enjoy dinner served to you by your student council members. 

     There are a lot of events that happen during homecoming. These events are something that most of us hold near and dear. In order for these events and subsequent events to happen, it is imperative that we are all personally responsible for the safety of ourselves and our fellow community members, classmates, and staff members. Please practice social distancing, mask wearing if social distancing is not possible, and handwashing as often as possible. 

     Have a fun, spirit-filled, and SAFE homecoming week! GOOOOOO TIGERS!!!
