Friday’s updates and YOGA

Good afternoon,

I hope this blog finds you and your family well. What a busy week and this weather does not help the stir craziness of the kiddos. However, never fear, the weather will be breaking starting tomorrow. A few announcements and one that I am extremely excited about:

  • Food is still available for pickup on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at OL Smith. The pickup includes breakfast and lunch.
  • The district has put together and submitted a plan to RESA for remoter learning. More information will follow (hopefully sooner than later). Essentially the plan mirrors what you and the Nowlin staff have already been doing so that’s a relief.
  • Lastly, as you know we offer Yoga for the students, parents and staff. Our wonderful yoga instructor, Ms. Kristen, has put together several extremely accessible yoga videos for parents and students. They are listed below:
