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.
Good morning, Some information on upcoming events: Tomorrow's wrestling quad will also be senior/parents night. Please help us by thanking the senior wrestlers for their dedication to the program. Recognition will take place during the event that starts at 5:00 tomorrow. Attendance is open. On February 18th, we'll honor the girls basketball parents and seniors. Recognition will take place after the JV game. On February 19th, we'll honor the boys basketball parents and seniors. Recognition will take place after the girls varsity game. Attendance is open for all events. The boys basketball game on Tuesday, February 16th will be played at Montrose High School, not McCook High School in Salem. One last reminder tonight is Parent/Teacher Conferences, for 7th-12th grade please check the school website for links on how to sign up and conference with your child's teacher(s). Stay Warm, Eric

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

Please use this link to sign up for Tri-Valley Archery. Grades 4th-12th can participate in Archery; however, 4th-6th grade archers must pay a fee for practice facilities and any applicable tournament fees. For students in grades 7th-12th, all fees are paid by the district. https://forms.gle/fiw4r8onVUHSAJvWA
Tri-Valley is in need of a bus monitor. The pay is $25 per route ($50 per day). Interested individuals should contact Sherry at the bus garage at 605-446-3482.
Greetings, We have recently been placed into a Winter Storm Warning. With the timing of the warning, I don’t believe that a district wide early release would be of much benefit by the time we could get busses here, loaded, etc. and this would also put parents in a significant time crunch to make daycare arrangements. We are going to make some accommodations due to the weather though: 1). High school students will be released today at 2:50 p.m. This will allow the high school to begin 8th-period and get any materials that they may need before dismissal. This will also allow our high schoolers that drive to get on the road before our busses start to enter the premises and parents begin to show up for student pickups. If a high schooler rides a school bus home, they will be able to stay until loading time for the busses. Some of our high schoolers drive siblings home and in these events: parents if you wish for your jk-8 child to be released earlier so they can ride home with a sibling please contact the appropriate office (Joni Bunde 446-3538 ext. 100 for jk-4th-grade; or Dana Sundal for grades 5-8 at 446-3538 ext. 400). 2). There will be no after school activities today. 3). In order to get our busses home as soon as possible today, some routes will not have bus monitors so as to not have to take extra time to drop off the monitors at the conclusion of the route. Respectfully, Dr. Mike Lodmel, Superintendent
