Good evening, Stanford families! Thank you for letting us choose safety today. We WILL be open as usual on Wednesday. I went out this afternoon and drove roads for a couple hours, including most of our bus routes. They have now been plowed and the wind has died down to limit drifting while letting visibility improve. A normal day on Wednesday. But bundle up! It is chilly out there! Thank you again for your continued support of the school! Mr. C
We have tentatively rescheduled Tuesday's cancelled JHBB games to: Thursday, Feb. 23rd DGSG vs. TCT @ Hobson Girls B 4 p.m./Girls A 5 p.m./Boys B 6 p.m./Boys A 7 p.m. (Geraldine drives-leave @ 2 p.m.; pickup Denton @ Junction @ 2:30 p.m.; Geyser leaves @ 2:30 p.m.; leave Stanford @ 2:45 p.m.)
Hello Stanford Families! Mother Nature is putting on quite a show today and looks like she will take it up a notch overnight and tomorrow. We are going to be proactive vs. reactive. We will do school remotely tomorrow, Tuesday, February 21st. Teachers are making plans and will send some things home with the kids today. I know it seems like we have had a lot of closure this year. We have. But I will always err toward caution when it comes to your kids' safety. Going remote will prevent us from having an additional makeup day later in the year. I've been out on the roads today and the limited plowing has done its best to keep up with the snowfall, but it is a lot. Tomorrow has high winds and plummeting temperatures forecast. I would rather we all plan for remote today versus scramble for closure tomorrow. The amazing staff here was up for the challenge and will do their best to make it an educationally productive day for the kids. Thank you for all your support.
Ski Cards and forms are being sent home. Please return by next TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21ST. Any questions, please contact Mr. Tempel (K1-5), or Mr. Neumann (6-12). Our school ski days are Thursday March 9 and Thursday March 23.
No cheer tonight, Wednesday, Feb. 8th!
We will have little bearcat basketball this Friday at the Stanford Home game. K-2 grades will play during halftime of GV and grades 3-5 will play during halftime of BV, just like in Jan. Please meet in the elementary hallway 2 minutes before half time.
