Centre STUCO is in need of help! We have concessions on Friday, December 2 during our first home basketball games vs. Wakefield. Many of the STUCO members play or cheer, so we would LOVE community help. The funds raised through STUCO support activities for ALL STUDENTS and are used directly within our school for activities such as fall and winter homecoming, Back-to-School night, All-School Christmas Bash, etc. Please sign up using the link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0e45a8ac22a5fdcf8-hsbb

Parents/Guardians, with a lot of possible absences coming up for appointments, hunting season or work, here is a reminder of the policy concerning the ability to participate in practices or games: Students must be in attendance from the beginning of second hour until the end of the school day on a game/event day in order to participate in after school or evening events. Appointments such as doctor, dental, and other medical health are excusable with proper documentation of the visit on that day. Exceptions may be made with administration for extenuating circumstances. *Games/events* include, but are not limited to, practice, games, dances, clubs’ events, pep band, etc. Absences such as hunting and working for family will be approved for attendance purposes if the school is notified prior to the absence. However, if they are not in attendance at school, they cannot practice, play, or participate in events. This also pertains to absences due to illness. They must be in attendance at the start of second hour until the end of the school day to be able to practice or play.
Here are the events for this week! Good Luck to our HS BB athletes who begin their season this Friday at home!
Butter Braid pick up is for the students/families that sold them. It is then your responsibility to get the items to the people who bought from your student! --

Because of the large number of students and staff experiencing health issues, the decision has been made to cancel school at Centre for tomorrow and Tuesday, in the hopes that everyone will get healthy over Thanksgiving break. We currently have about 50 students and around a dozen teachers and staff out with upper respiratory issues and fever and we know of at least six students who have been diagnosed with Influenza A. The junior high basketball games with Hope scheduled for tomorrow will be rescheduled at a later date. Please take care of yourselves and your families and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Parents and Guardians, We sent 15 students home today that were vomiting. Some had a fever but not all of them. We had 12 students that were home sick today that didn't come to school, so we have a major bug going around. I spoke with the Marion County Health Department today and she said students who are vomiting, have a fever, or diarrhea need to stay home for 24 hours after their last episode with no medication. This is extremely important to keep the bug from spreading to other students and staff. Please follow this rule! We have students who return to school the day after we send them home. This exposes everyone at school and only makes things worse for everyone else. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
There has been a time change for the JH Basketball games tonight at Peabody. The girls JV will begin at 4 followed by 2 quarters of boys' JV followed by the girls and boys varsity games. They are doing a rolling schedule so the games will start immediately following the completion of the first game. Please be careful.
Free virtual parenting classes.
The junior class students on the field trip to Topeka today will return back to school a little after 4:00 this afternoon due to a mechanical issue with the bus. We will transport any students home if needed.

We had a great turnout for our Veteran's Day program this afternoon and the students all did great. Thank you Mrs. Harmes for your hard work. Just another reminder to send your student to school with the clothes they need for the weather we are having, and please don't let them bring blankets to school. Because of a large number of students going on the Tampa trip December 5th, we have moved our concert date to December 13th at 2:00 in the afternoon. I realize this is not ideal for everyone to attend, but there are no open evenings in the month of December. Thank you for understanding.
