We will have an early release on Friday, March 12, to allow students, teachers and staff the opportunity to attend the Cougars basketball game at the state tournament at West Side Greers Ferry. We will dismiss school at 11 AM and then run regular bus routes. We will have a pep bus for students (grades 5-12) wanting to attend the basketball game – sign up in the high school office. The game begins at 1 PM and you will need a ride home after returning to school. If you are riding the pep bus, you may bring $6 for your ticket versus having to individually purchase online. You will also need to bring money for snacks (approx. $10). We will make up this time in May.
