The School Messenger Notification System is a secondary public announcement that delivers personalized phone, text message and/or e-mail messages to parents, staff or other groups via home, office and or cell phones.

This process will use the same login information parents of middle school and high school students use to check grades via PowerSchool. Parents of incoming preschool and Kindergarten students will be mailed access IDs and passwords in early June.

School Calendar

Continue to check the school’s on-line calendar during the summer months for many events and changes as they occur. Also the one page 2012-2013 school year calendar is available on the web site under calendars. The first day of school will be Tuesday, Aug. 21. Have an enjoyable summer.

Pesky Solon nettling ranked teams

SOLON– After what seems like a month on the road, the Solon varsity softball team returns home this week.

In the last week alone, Solon played the No. 6 team in Class 5A (Ottumwa), the No. 1 team in 4A (Clear Creek Amana) and the No. 4 team in Class 3A (Mid-Prairie), losing only to CCA as part of a four-game weekend at the CCA’s tournament in Tiffin.
