  • Good morning. By now I am sure you are all aware that school will be closing for a couple of weeks because of the Coronavirus.  As I have told many of you before, our very first job as the adults who work in this school is to make sure you are safe and well. School is cancelled for at least two weeks so that we can do just that - keep you safe and well by trying to limit the spread of illness.  Our school will be temporarily closed and given an extra good cleaning, and we will be back in our classes before you know it.  One of the questions that you might have right now is whether or not we will be taking part in our Snow Day Scholars Program.  I am going to come back on the news later today to talk about that. For now, it is important for you to know that you should pack up your Chromebook and charger to take home today.  In fact, you should plan to take home all of your belongings...lunch boxes, sweatshirts, jackets, gym clothes….Your teachers are going to give you some time today to clean out your lockers so you won’t leave anything important behind. So...I will come back on the intercom later today.  Meanwhile we will have our normal Friday, business as usual, and I hope it is a good one for you. Have a great morning.

  • Do you want free stuff? Do you want to add to your school? Than you should consider submitting to Out of Blue!  You could win a prize in our writing contest, our cover contest, or our strive for five contest!  We want your poems, short stories, opinionated pieces, drawings, photography, comic strips and other talented pieces.  If you submit, you never know, Pritam Appikatla might give you a Jolly Rancher!  Kavin Shanmugam might do your homework (a good grade is not guaranteed).  Julia Alkhayer will sing for you.  Ms. Olsen will tell your teacher to give you an A. Kiran Francis will rap for you.  Sabrina Glaviano will bake for you.  Either way, please submit and you could be published in a nationally award winning magazine.
