****************************************************

We need to share with you that unfortunately our yearbook will not be available to distribute to students before the end of the school year.  In reviewing the yearbook, we found some oversights, and in order to make sure we have a complete yearbook, our best option is to reprint it.  The yearbooks will be distributed sometime in late June.  We recognize this is a disappointment to everyone, especially to our hardworking yearbook students.  We worked with the publisher to find remedies to a delayed delivery, but none of them allowed for the quality yearbook we want to provide to our students.  

We will still find ways to celebrate the end of the year with students and staff, and will be giving all students a signature book free of charge so they are able to have their classmates and teachers sign and write positive messages as they reflect on and celebrate the 2023-2024 school year.  

We will be communicating with parents/families this summer via school messenger when the yearbooks have arrived with details about how you can pick them up.  If you or your student prefer to receive a refund, please contact Carrie Bode at 402-436-1225. You and the students have our sincerest apologies for this delay.

Below are other important reminders. Here is an index to help you navigate this month’s update:


Summer student meals and Electronic Benefit Transfer information

Summer EBT

This summer, the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Summer Electronic Benefit Transfer (Summer EBT) will provide eligible school-age children with $120 in benefits to help keep them fed when school is out. These funds can be used to buy select food items during the summer period of May 16 through August 31. 

More information can be found on this website to see if your family is eligible.  

Free student meal locations for summer 2024

Thanks to the federally funded Summer Food Service Program, children aged 18 or younger get the nutrition they need to learn, play and grow during summer when they do not eat at school. 

Summer locations are listed on our website with dates and times, or Text FOOD or COMIDA to 304304 or call 211 or use an interactive map located at NoKidHungry.


REMINDER: School physicals

It is time to schedule your students’ school physical for next school year! All students benefit from an annual wellness exam.

Families of kindergarten and seventh grade students for the 2024-2025 school year need to provide evidence of a physical examination completed by a physician, physician assistant, or an advance practice registered nurse to the school your child attends – or will attend.  There are required immunizations needed for school that are given to kindergarteners and seventh grade students during their school physical.

All students must be current with all school required immunizations and provide proof to the school. There are many resources available and the school nurse can assist you if you have questions.

Please note that high school athletic physicals need to be completed after May 1st to be eligible for the 2024-2025 sports season.


Check it off your to-do list: Kindergarten registration for 2024-25
