Changes to School Start

Good Afternoon,
Due to the multiple fires on the roof at North Butler High School in the past 48 hours, we will have a change to the start of the year. North Butler PK-6 students will have schools as planned starting on Wednesday August 23rd. 7-12 grades will now tentatively begin on Monday August 28th. This will depend upon whether or not Serv Pro (A professional cleaning company that specializes in disaster clean up) has finished cleaning up the building at that point.

All scheduled activities will continue as planned, including the home FB game with Starmont on Friday evening. We will continue with VB and cheer practices in Allison, and football and XC practices outside at the coach’s discretion.  The weight room and JH/HS are closed to the public and students until further notice.

We will not have to make up these contact days as per the following excerpt from the DE:
            Remember also that if just a classroom or attendance center is closed for emergency health or safety reasons, while the remainder of the district is in operation, the day may be counted as a day of school.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we deal with these issues!
