Last night at the monthly school board meeting, our board modified the current school year calendar. With all the snow days this past year, New York Mills had six weather cancellation days. Three of those days have already been made up according to our original calendar. In light of the recent legislation in St. Paul, the board chose to forgive the other three instructional days for students and make them district-wide staff professional development days. The three days forgiven are June 3, 4 and 5, making our last student day Friday, May 31! June 3-5 will be mandatory staff development days for teachers, paraprofessionals, cooks, cleaners and bus drivers.
Kenna Salo is the fifth New York Mills High School senior to sign a letter of intent to play college ball! Kenna, the daughter of Janelle and Dean Salo, will play softball for the University of Jamestown, where she will be pursuing a degree in physical therapy. Congratulations!
