USD 298 approves LES storm shelter renovations

At the May 7 meeting, the USD 298 Board of Education approved elementary school locker room renovations to fortify the space as a safe storm shelter, with masonry and door improvements to be completed this summer. The board also approved a $0.10 increase on breakfast and lunch prices for the 2018-2019 school year, a softball coop agreement with Sylvan-Lucas, and the iDecide curriculum for the junior high students.

The meeting started with routine matters and an educational presentation from Mrs. Holeman’s Spanish students. They recorded audio for a Cinco de Mayo PowerPoint, each student taking a turn reading a little bit about the history and culture of the holiday in Spanish, while the English words were presented on screen for the board.


New website and app Technology Coordinator Brenda White showed the board the new school website and the various sections, including events, news, notifications, and a live feed that works with social media accounts. White and staff have been working on the website update since October and it is now ready to go live.
