The state required ACT test for Juniors will be Wednesday February 20th. All juniors (those who attend the CTC and the high school) will need to be at the high school at 7:45 Wednesday morning for the test.
I apologize for taking so long to do this drive and fighting this all evening but I have decided to go ahead and call a two hour delay for tomorrow morning. I’ve driven several county roads and almost all of them have standing water covering part of the road. Some roads like red bridge and Bell Hollow have water completely covering them right now. I’m also concerned about downed trees and I want to give a drivers the best chance to see any potential hazards left over from flooding or from the wind so we will be operating on a two hour delay for tomorrow morning. I think we will be able to have school tomorrow but I’m afraid I can’t get all of the roads checked in the morning before 6 AM to make the best decision possible.
Softball conditioning is canceled for tonight due to roads becoming potentially worse than they are now with more rain forecasted. Apologies for any confusion!
Softball conditioning isn’t mandatory. Do not attempt traveling your roads if there’s any flooding.
Softball conditioning will start at 4:30 today and go to 5:30
Softball conditioning is still on 4:00 to 5:30
The boys games for tonight are canceled. We will let you know when they are rescheduled as soon as possible.
Bus 1 may be running a few minutes late because of a tree down on the route
Junior high boys and girls game is still on for tonight. Varsity girls game is still on for tonight at home also. Reminder that tonight is senior night for the girls! Western Lady Indians Softball Conditioning is still on for today Monday Feb 11 4:30-5:30. Junior high Gym. Dress for success in shorts or sweatpants, t-shirt, and tennis shoes! (Dress appropriately) Also, bring a water bottle! Go Indians! 💚
5th/6th grade students: The due date for the scientific research report is now due Thursday, Feb. 14th. The whole science fair project that consists of the report and display board, to get a chance of moving on to the district science fair, will be due on Tuesday, February 19
Western will be closed on Monday due to icy roads.
We are going to be operating on a two hour delay for Monday due to icy road conditions and cold temperatures overnight. Expecting everything to be fine in the morning but roads are terrible right now and we are afraid that they won’t warm up enough to melt overnight. We’d rather have daylight to navigate the roads.
The boys games for tonight are still on. Basketball players and cheerleaders can be at the school by 3:30 pm. You will be fed today before the game.
Unfortunately due to 3 Major Rd. closures in the district we are going to have to cancel today. That in addition to the fact it is going to only be 26 by the time we let out of school forces me to have to cancel. Redbridge Road, Beavers Ridge Road, and 124 below Idaho are all underwater. Beavers Ridge being closed is always our biggest issue because we have buses that have to get off of there trough Idaho to get to other routes.
We will be operating on a two hour delay for Friday, February 8.
Senior night for our girls is rescheduled for Monday night.
The high school girls and Jr. High games have been cancelled for this evening. A make up day for the game and senior night has not been determined at this time.
I have never canceled school on a forecast but after yesterday and with the forecast of rain coming today my fear is that we would have to have an early dismissal again after the delay which wouldn’t make any sense because we would.be spending more time on buses today than in the classroom. Forecast says anywhere between 3/4 of an inch and 2 inches. We could possibly handle 3/4 that we couldn’t handle anymore than that without the ditches being in the same condition as yesterday. If we don’t get the rain I will apologize for canceling on a forecast. If we do it will look like a smart idea! That’s the world I live in every day!
I’m going to go ahead and call a two hour delay for tomorrow morning. The forecast isn’t talking about a lot more rain through the night but I’m more worried about ditches and back roads still being flooded in the morning and also the likelihood of debris laying on the road. I would much rather deal with that in the daylight than the dark.
All students will be dismissing at 1:30 except students who ride Tonda Hatfields bus number 10 will be leaving today at 12:30
I think this may be an unnecessary precaution however I promised I would never take a chance with flooded roads so we are going to dismiss today at 1:30. Right now sunfish is pretty good but there is a storm coming through around 1 o’clock according to the radar that could be heavy rain and I don’t want to get an inch dumped on us before we can get out of here. We may find out that everything was fine but I don’t want to take that kind of chance.

We are going to go ahead and close for Thursday due to the high water and ice on the roads. They’re getting ready to close 124 in Idaho and we have several roads that have water issues and we are also dealing with ice. Although it looks good by this afternoon this morning is definitely going to be a no go so everyone have a great day.
I apologize for the late notice but I have had a terrible time getting this message sent. We are going to have a two hour delay tomorrow mainly due to flooded ditches and standing water on the roads and also the possibility of ice tomorrow morning. I don’t want student drivers or buses coming up on flooded roadways in the dark in the morning especially with the possibility of ice due to the 26° forecasted temperature. Again I apologize for the late call but it has not been due to lack of effort!!!

Tonda had trouble getting her bus started and will be running about 15 to 20 minutes late this morning
Bus 18’s first pick up is normally at 6:40. We will try to have the bus leaving here by 7:40 so the first pick up should be around 7:50. Students should get picked up around one hour and 10 minutes later than normal. We will run the route in the same way it normally runs in the morning.
I have already sent the voice call about this but I want to put it out in print also. We do not have a driver for Bus 18 tomorrow. Therefore we will have to do a double route. We will send a bus from the school at around 7:40 to begin Teresa’s route. First pick up should be around 8 AM or a little after. I apologize in advance for the inconvenience.
Bus 16 cannot get past Shannon‘s house on Beekman Ridge due to an electric fire and so the back end of Beekman Ridge Road will not be picked up. Students will be excused.
The last message was for students who ride bus 15 only.
Shannon Beekman has a tree on fire in her driveway and has to wait for it to be moved. She will be running late and I don’t want everyone to stand outside and wait so I will notify you when she leaves her house.
This message is going out to everyone for safety but it is only for students to ride Kelly May’s bus 14. We were unable to get a sub driver for Kelly this morning and by the time we would double route students would get here after 11:30. Students who ride Kelly’s bus are not required to attend today and will be given an excused absence if they do not come to school. Any student who wants to come to school today from that bus is more than welcome to but we will not be able to take you home this afternoon so you would have to be picked up. I am very sorry for the inconvenience but the delay caused a double route not to work as it normally would.
We have ice in the tree tops but the roads are fine. Temperature is 32 now and rising. We will be having school. Drivers be careful on bridges and we will see everyone at 10 o’clock.

As most of you know, we are having a t shirt fundraiser for Aydon Satterfield, a 3rd grade student who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer. The orders and money need to be turned into the high school or elementary office by this Friday, March 17th. The form stated that checks need to be made to Western Elementary. However, they need to be made to Dream Love Design. If you have already turned in your order with a check made to the school, we are asking that you send in another check made payable to Dream Love Design. We are sorry for any inconveniences and we want to thank you for supporting a wonderful cause. If you have any questions, please contact the school.
