Tri-Center families, it is hard to believe Easter is over and spring weather is in full force.  I hope you all get the time to enjoy the changing weather and scenery of the season.  Here are a few important dates to remember for April

Snow day make up.  
With spring weather upon us you may have already forgotten, Tri-Center had four days of school canceled due to inclement weather and road conditions.  Tri-Center students will be making up two of these four snow days.  The last day of school for students will now be a 1:30 dismissal on Thursday, May 26th.   

Contacting elected officials.  
You may have noticed in the headlines an increase to State Supplemental Aid (SSA) of 2.25% is waiting for the Governors approval.  The timing of this increase is over a year past the legal deadline for notification and woefully inadequate when compared to the rising cost of expenses and the increases in state revenues.  Please consider contacting your elected officials and encourage them to support funding for Iowa’s public schools.  

As the spring weather continues to increase encourage the instinct for some is to spend less time studying and more time outside.  Encourage your students to combine these things and press hard through the end of the school year.  Please email, call or stop by any of the school offices with questions you may have.
