As we head into December and winter approaches, we want to remind parents how they can stay informed when inclement weather affects school. The decision to delay the opening of school, dismiss early, or close school for the day due to weather conditions is never an easy one. Our priority is always the safety of the children. School closings, or early school dismissal, will be announced on the district website and sign as soon as the decision is made. In addition, we will send emails and autodial phone calls and text messages to BGR-1 families. Our community will also find accurate information about school closings on the following television stations: WGEM, KTVI (Ch.2), and KSDK (Ch. 5), both TV and online, on the Townsquare Media Quincy/Hannibal KHMO‐AM/KICK‐FM/KRRY‐FM/WLIQ‐AM and KJFM (Eagle 102) radio stations and websites, The Bowling Green Times and Peoples' Tribune online broadcasts, and on our District Facebook page. When we experience inclement weather conditions, safety is the most important consideration. Parents can help their students and the district prepare. Make plans ahead of time and communicate them with your children so they understand what to expect during an early school dismissal due to inclement weather. Understand that school closings are for the safety of children throughout the district. While the condition of your neighborhood streets may be fine, other areas of the district may be experiencing harsher weather. Please review the information you have listed as emergency contacts and make sure that the numbers are updated in our Student Information System by contacting your building office. Lastly, I am thankful we have not had any snow days within the first semester of this year so far. You may know that schools can attend remotely this year on days where schools are closed due to inclement weather and can count these for attendance and not be made up. This was new last year. We still plan to use the first five of our built-in snow days as regular nonattendance days if we have to close for inclement weather before using this remote option, otherwise known as AMI (alternative methods of instruction days). If we have more than five snow days, our plan is to use our Alternative Methods of Instruction plan approved by our state education department. Look for more information about this after the first of the year.

Hello, Parents and Families! We are excited to offer a way to give back to Bowling Green Elementary! On October 25th we will be kicking off our fall fundraiser to help benefit our students and staff. Our STEAM ENGINE fundraiser, more specifically will help with funding our student/teacher incentive recognition fund and our PTO funds to start up and outdoor classroom. It is going to be AWESOME, and we are excited to get started! A few things to note: • This fundraiser will be very easy for you. It only requires about 10 minutes of your time. • Your students can earn great prizes, just for their effort. No money required! • This is an online, donation-based fundraiser, and the donation requests can go to people you know anywhere in the world. That means, no direct pressure on your shoulders. Students will be bringing home more information next week after our Launch Party Assembly. Please help your student register and complete the Golden Ticket assignment THAT VERY NIGHT! All students who complete the Golden Ticket assignment will receive fun PRIZES and it does not require any money to register. We will also be doing some fun drawings for an iPad and TWO Mini Party Fridges stuffed with CASH! I will be sending a few more emails throughout the two-week fundraising period. Please contact me directly if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for your support! Sincerely, Mr. Kessler BGE Principal
