Please  refer often to our updated “Notices and Information” page. It currently holds information regarding:

  • “A Note from the Nurse: Influenza Information”

REMINDER: Students are reminded that they need to cross Kanesville either at the overpass or at the crosswalk – NOT in the middle of the block. We’ve had numerous reports of students almost being hit by cars as they cross mid-block on their way to Kirn – these reports included those walking, on bikes and on scooters. The SRO will ticket students for jaywalking if they are caught crossing in the middle of the block.

* If you are looking for information on Kirn Activities or Athletics, please see the schedule posted on the Activity/Athletic page.
