Principal Update: As Mrs. Sigrist is getting ready to start her 5th round of chemo, we thought it would be appropriate to give you a quick update. Yes, she is still working. She always looks forward to greeting the students in the mornings. So far, Mrs. Sigrist is handling the chemo pretty well except for some nauseousness. Unfortunately, she did experience a minor setback with her most recent chemo because her platelet count was low. She knew that pushing her appointment back would cause her to feel fatigue, and nauseous during Thanksgiving and that was upsetting. Even then, she continued to show up to work and come in with a positive attitude. She has another pet scan coming up that will show how effective chemo has been so far. We will keep you informed on her progress. Thank you to everyone who continues to pray and show their support. We would like to ask everyone who contributed towards the Sigrist Strong movement to show their support by wearing their shirt/mask this Friday, December 4th. Snap a picture and share it with us on our Facebook page @ Arcola Jr. Sr. High School. You can also use #sigriststrong.

Dear Arcola Jr./Sr. High students, parents and community members, As many of you already know our principal Lisa Sigrist has recently been diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer called Neuroendocrine cancer. Unfortunately, the cancer has also spread to her liver and lungs. After several weeks and many appointments, she will be starting very aggressive chemo treatments. Mrs. Sigrist is in overall good health and continues to stay positive. She is a fighter and with the support and prayers of our community we are confident that she will overcome this. Please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers. Here are two options to show your support https://forms.gle/4kfdBCAShWbgYmZCA https://mealtrain.com/l13y2w

Today would have been our first football game of the season. Things are a little different this year for our players, coaches, and fans. Tony isn't lining the field, the money boxes aren't ready, and the press box is closed. For the first time in 27 years, Coach Lindsey isn't packing his Friday night football bag. We are very proud of our players and coaches who have put in all the work they have so far. On a scale of 1-10 how much do you miss seeing the Purple Riders on the field?

If there is no sticker on the iPad with the student name, please tape a paper to the device with the student name on it if possible. 3. place both parts of the charger (the cord and the wall adapter) in a ziplock bag with the student name and current grade year on it. 4. place the iPad and the baggie with the charger in a large ziplock bag or brown paper bag with  the student name and current grade year on the outside of the bag.   5. Jr. Sr. High students please leave your Apple Pencil in the slot on your iPad case. 6.

Did you know there is a TeacherEase app that can keep parents and students informed on grades and attendance. Recently TeacherEase updated their app to include push notifications. Please read the message below from TeacherEase. We’ve recently been working on mobile apps. In our latest release, we upgraded the iOS TeacherEase parent/student app to receive notifications when events occur in the system (grade is entered, student is marked absent, announcement is sent, etc). Users stay updated without needing to login. To receive notifications, install the TeacherEase app and enable notifications. This release builds upon recent updates allowing the mobile app to stay logged into TeacherEase. After initial login, users can access the app with pin, fingerprint, and/or faceid authentication. If you’re still using Safari on iOS, we’d suggest installing the app -- it’s much more convenient. Link to the app - https://apps.apple.com/us/app/teacherease-parents-students/id1232341133

Thanks to the help of local businesses, residents, and surrounding community the Arcola Purple Rider Volleyball team will be able to donate $1600.00 to Mill's Breast Cancer Institute in Urbana, IL. We live in a great community that loves to support our school. Here is a picture from last night of the Arcola Volleyball Girls with the Blue Ridge Knights. The Purple Riders beat the Knights in two sets, which made the night even better.

Blue was Tyson’s favorite color. The Arcola School District will wear blue on Monday as well, as a way to show our support. It takes a village and then some to help heal after such a tragic event.

Did you know there is a TeacherEase app that can keep parents and students informed on grades and attendance. Recently TeacherEase updated their app to include push notifications. Please read the message below from TeacherEase. We’ve recently been working on mobile apps. In our latest release, we upgraded the iOS TeacherEase parent/student app to receive notifications when events occur in the system (grade is entered, student is marked absent, announcement is sent, etc). Users stay updated without needing to login. To receive notifications, install the TeacherEase app and enable notifications. This release builds upon recent updates allowing the mobile app to stay logged into TeacherEase. After initial login, users can access the app with pin, fingerprint, and/or faceid authentication. If you’re still using Safari on iOS, we’d suggest installing the app -- it’s much more convenient. Link to the app - https://apps.apple.com/us/app/teacherease-parents-students/id1232341133
