Sandy Creek, L-N Boards Vote to Reunify SCNUD Tuesday Night

Article Image Alt Text

Voting as separate entities for a collaborative effort, the Sandy Creek and Lawrence-Nelson School Board members voted 5-1 Tuesday, May 24, to adopt the newest unified agreement for another eight years.
South Central’s new unified agreement will replace the current agreement and officially begin on Wednesday, June 1, 2016.
The unification, as stated in the school’s interlocal agreement states, “the purpose of this agreement is to provide educational opportunities for the students of Sandy Creek and Lawrence-Nelson that the school districts would not be able to provide as effectively if each district acted independently.”
Once the new agreement begins on June 1, it will remain in effect until May 30, 2024, with the two districts together known as the South Central Nebraska Unified School District #5.
Stay tuned for more information in the June 1 edition of the Clay County News.

Emotions were high as family, friends and younger classmates watched as 85 Clay county students graduated from their perspective schools over the weekend.
 
HARVARD:
Twenty-four students graduate early Saturday afternoon, but they were saying goodbye to more than just each other. Harvard’s Superintendent Michael Derr reminded the class that whether they were graduating with honors or survived high school as a ‘C’ student, it did not define them as a person. A ‘C’ student could still move on to do big things, just as the honor student could.

Article Image Alt Text

“It sounded like a bomb going off, and then the lights went out and I heard a scream,” Lue Graesser said, recalling the evening storm Monday, that damaged a portion of the Sandy Creek School. While three tornadoes touched down in the county, according to Emergency Management Coordinator Loren Uden, only one did damage. A storm chaser reported a tornado on the ground south of Fairfield, but it was not the same tornado to hit SC.
