The Arcola School District will again be using a “Late Start” schedule as an option this school year when there is inclement weather. This means that on “Late Start” days school will start at 10 am and end at the regularly scheduled time. The regular bus routes will run two hours later than normal. A “Late Start” will be announced just like any school closing. We will publicize on TV and Radio, as well as send out information on our phone notification system and social media. To assist with transportation concerns, we have partnered with Gould Transportation to provide free in-town bus service on “Late Start” days for students that are not already on a regular route. If you live where district transportation is NOT currently provided and you are NOT on a paid in-town bus route but would like your student to be transported on “Late Start” days only, please contact Gould Transportation at 253-2232 to get signed up.

Arcola will team up with WCIA news to "Tackle Hunger". Bring in any of what they call the Super Six: Canned Meats, Canned Meals, Canned Vegetables, Canned Fruit, Boxed Meals, or Peanut Butter. This will be another part of the Cola Wars, as Tuscola will also be collecting food during the week. The Eastern Illinois Food Bank will pick up the food and weigh it, the school with the heaviest amount will be the winner. They will also be collecting money and food at the gate the night of the game. The food/monetary donations will help "tackle hunger" in our community.

The Arcola School Board recently approved some changes to the student fee schedule for the 2018-2019 school year. The Board approved an increase of $0.10 in lunch and breakfast prices for next school year. The increase would be from $1.95 to $2.05 for elementary and $2.20 to $2.30 for JH/HS. The increase for breakfast will be from $1.35 to $1.45. This change was required as part of the federal lunch program that the district participates in annually. The district is required to keep the paid prices close to the per meal reimbursement rate set by the federal lunch program. On the other hand, the Board reduced or suspended completely a variety of fees for students for the upcoming school year. The following are the changes that will be in effect for the 18-19 school year: • Reduction of Textbook/Registration Fee by $15 at all levels. The Fees will be ES - $30; JH - $40; HS - $45. • There will no course fees at the junior high or high school (these were $15 fees each for courses like Chemistry, Art, Ag, Business etc.) • There will be no $15 student activity fee for junior high and high school students. • There will be no $5 art fee for the elementary school students. • For junior high and high school extra-curricular activities, there will be a one-time $20 fee per student rather than a $20 fee per activity. The parents and community of Arcola has always supported the school district in tough financial times. The district is currently in strong financial condition and as a result, the Board decided it was time to reduce fees.
