SRHS Update: Week of November 21

Good Morning Parents, Students, and Friends of Sanborn Regional High School:

It is hard to believe that we have reached Thanksgiving week, a short week for us. Here are your important announcements:

1. This past weekend we had a tragic event occur in our community. Here is a copy of the alert-now message that you should have received from Dr. Blake:

Good evening,
This is Brian Blake, superintendent of schools for the Sanborn Regional School District. As many of you are aware, the Sanborn community experienced a tragedy on Friday night with the passing of one of our 8th grade students. I have met with the local officials and the District Crisis team in preparation for school on Monday. I will be meeting with the faculty prior to the beginning of school to prepare for the arrival of our students. Additional counseling support will be provided in each of the schools in order to meet the needs of the students and staff. Additional information and resources will be forthcoming to parents in the coming days. If you have any questions or immediate concerns, please contact your building principal.

As a school, we will be offering counseling support to those who need it. For parents, I would encourage you to visit the SAFE Sanborn website for more resources and information that you can use as you help your child process this: Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends, and all impacted by the events from this weekend.

2. It is time to start thinking about an after-prom party. The after-prom party is an annual tradition that is completely organized and run by parent volunteers. Historically, it has been parents of juniors who have led the effort, but anyone is welcome to help out. Theresa Drury has volunteered to act as a point of contact to get together volunteers and start the planning process. Please consider helping out --- this event will only be as successful as the parents who are willing to help organize it. Please email her at both of the following addresses if you would like to help. Also --- if any of you know where the "binder" is from last year's committee, Theresa would like that as well.

3. I attached the weekly guidance scholarship newsletter for you.
I hope you all have a restful and "thankful" long weekend.
