When it comes to school safety, we are proactive in the Lake Holcombe School District. Students in the Lake Holcombe School District participated in their annual required school safety drill on March 9. Our school safety team meets every month to discuss safety concerns in the Lake Holcombe School District. Our confidential safety plan is updated annually and our procedures are practiced. We are continually evaluating our processes and procedures. This year we implemented the ALICE program. The following are a few reminders that we would like you to discuss with your son or daughter:
They say that breakfast is the most important part of the day. For more than 30 years, School Breakfast Programs have contributed to the health and educational development of our state’s children by making nutritious breakfasts available in Wisconsin schools. The School Breakfast Program plays an important role in promoting healthy eating habits of children and combating childhood hunger.
Recent studies indicate that students who eat breakfast have improved mathematics grades and reading scores, enhanced classroom attentiveness, reduced absenteeism and tardy rates, fewer nurses’ visits, and improved psychosocial behavior. School breakfast programs can significantly enhance the students’ learning environment, allowing children to concentrate on graduating with the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in the workplace or with further studies, a primary goal of the Lake Holcombe School District.
An increasing number of schools are offering the school breakfast program as a means
of better meeting community needs. School Breakfast Week is March 2-6, 2020. During School Breakfast Week, we pay tribute to the many concerned individuals involved in this program including state officials, school food and nutrition service professionals, school administrators, teachers, parents, local civic leaders, and many volunteers.
