Message from the Superintendent
Due to the increase amount of drugs that are becoming more available within our community and are finding their way into our high school we will be utilizing our dog Elvis more frequently. What does this mean for the high school? It means that Elvis will be visiting the High School randomly at least once per week until the end of the school year. I am putting this information in the daily bulletin so staff and students are made aware that as a school district, drugs will not be tolerated within our high school. As a staff and student body, it is ALL of our responsibility to make our students and staff safe to attend school. Please remember any students caught with drugs will face possible expulsion from the high school.

Thank you,

Dr. Lana DeCoteau, Superintendent
