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.
AHS students are at Tuscola High School this afternoon to hear Chris Herren, former NBA player, speak about addiction and self-destructive behavior. Linda Scribner, who lost her son Petey to a heroin overdose, helped organize the event and spoke to students from all over Douglas County before Mr. Herren.
Dear Arcola School Community, there was a rumor going around tonight about a potential school shooting tomorrow at school. The district has been working with the Arcola Police Department investigating the situation. There is no creditable information that has led to any concern about student safety tomorrow. Again, there is NO Creditable Threat. But as a precaution we will have a police presence at school tomorrow.
