Thanks to a generous donation from Operation Warm, Midwest Central is able to offer FREE coats to our students and community. We have the coats available at the Primary School in child sizes 7/8, 10/12, and 14/16. If you or someone you know needs a coat, please call the office at 309.968.6464 and reserve one today (while supplies last).
The Student Council will be hosting a coloring contest starting on February 24. It’s due March 19. Students first and last name must be on the back. Because it is in March, you have to use green as one of your colors, and you must use 6 colors total. Pick up the coloring sheet from Ms. Dean or Ms. Kober on the 24th, 25th, or 26th.

We apologize to the basketball parents for the last minute inconvenience of not being able to watch on person. We are having problems with our bleachers. We will still be broadcasting live on FB.
For most of the year we’ve been trying to run a second 3:00 PM shuttle to allow students to stay after the 2:00 PM dismissal time and receive extra help. Beginning March 1 we will be ending that practice for a variety of reasons, but the biggest reason is student safety. Because different students stay each day it creates a lack of consistency for bus routes thereby opening the chance for errors. We currently receive over 80 transportation changes daily, and with those there is an increased chance for a mistake to be made. Therefore, beginning March 1st we will revert to our prior policy of one student/one stop. We will only allow one pick up location and one drop off for each student. Please contact the bus barn if you’re unsure of your child’s stop. We will no longer accept transportation changes for students unless the change is permanent or you plan to pick your student up on a particular day. If you plan to pick a student up we must receive the call before noon that day. Please determine where you’d like your student picked up and dropped off each day and contact the bus barn to make them aware at 309.968.3020. Students will still be welcome to stay from 2:00-3:00 PM each day as long as they can arrange transportation home. We apologize for the change because we pride ourselves on good customer service. However, for the safety of our students it’s important that we revert back to our regular bus routes for the remainder of the year. This change will not affect the middle school students taking Algebra I, middle school first semester Educere students, or primary school band students. Those students that are in the last three groups will be contacted individually regarding transportation. Very Best, Dr. Todd Hellrigel
