Good Afternoon, The current forecast from the National Weather Service calls for colder temperatures tomorrow morning than what we experienced this morning. The windchill warning is set to expire tomorrow at 9 a.m. For this reason, Tri-Valley will be having a two-hour late start tomorrow (Tuesday, February 16th). We are making this determination as early as possible to make sure all students and parents are aware, and so we don’t have students waiting for busses at the normal pickup time.

Greetings,  According to the National Weather Service, we are in a Blizzard Warning from this evening until tomorrow evening with 60+ winds and below freezing temperature (mixed with snow) this afternoon.  Due to the forecasted high winds and potential for icy roads, we are going to be dismissing today at 12:30 p.m.  High school will be dismissed at noon and high schoolers who wish to eat school lunch can do so at that time in the commons. There will be NO after school activities today (Thursday, January 14). This includes practices, games, and the 5:45 bus route. Tri-Valley will be closed on Friday, January 15th.  For tomorrow, this means there will be no online learning, no staff in the building, no extra-curricular activities, and no special education transportation services.   As of this time, we are still planning on activities for SATURDAY to go on as scheduled, which includes the wrestling tournament that we are hosting. Respectfully,  Dr. Mike Lodmel, Superintendent

Tri-Valley will be having a special board meeting on Wednesday, January 13th at 2:30 p.m. via teleconference. The purpose of the meeting is to pay a bill for our capital outlay certificates in the amount of $236,906.53. The bill is expected, but the invoice had been sent to our FORMER business manager's FORMER e-mail address the past two months. We were just made aware of this invoice this afternoon, and it is due by January 15th. If we were to pay it late, it could potentially effect our credit rating for any future projects for the district. Thus, the reason for the urgency and the special school board meeting. Any patrons can come to listen to the meeting in the McAreavey Board Room or call in and listen on the number(s) provided on the agenda. I anticipate the meeting to only take a couple of minutes. Respectfully, Dr. Mike Lodmel, Superintendent
