Please Help: You may have heard that Almira lost their school in a fire yesterday. It was a K-8 building and while they are working on a plans to move the students to other spaces within the Almira-Coulee-Hartline school district, everything inside was a total loss. Insurance will eventually cover items but in the meantime, we are taking donations of new PE shoes (sizes youth 11 to adult 8) for Almira students. We will ship them next week with a message of support, so if you would like to donate a pair of new PE shoes for Almira students, please drop them off at the elementary or high school by Tuesday, October 19.
Reminder: PICTURE RETAKES tomorrow, Wednesday, October 13! If you are not satisfied with the portraits taken in September, simply send the entire portrait package back to school tomorrow and Leo's will re-photograph the student and replace the portraits.
COVID has definitely reared its ugly head at Selkirk Elementary with three confirmed cases in second grade. In an effort to mitigate the spread, we have quarantined the remainder of the second grade class for a bit. We are offering testing to second grade students next week in hopes of seeing them return by October 11. In the meantime, we have sent learning packets home and teachers will be connecting with families for online sessions. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but hope this process stops COVID in its tracks! If you have a neighbor with a second grade family, reach out to see if they need a delivery or anything! Let's join together as a Selkirk Community and help combat COVID!
SELKIRK WATER UPDATE: The water is back on at the high school! Is that statement a little deja' vu? Well, it's true!
