ALL STUDENTS (K-12) WILL BE OUTSIDE DURING THE NOON HOUR. Please make that you are dressed appropriately for the weather conditions. If it is rainy or below 0 (that includes wind chill factor) students will then be inside.
Once again the date for school elections is approaching. The School Election will be held on May 3, 2016 at the Savage School Lobby from 12:00 noon until 8:00 p.m. The trustee position currently held by John Stonehocker will be up for election and there may be mill levies on the ballot. Mill levies will be decided at a later date by the Board of Trustees.
Qualifications for a school board trustee include being a registered voter, living in the school district where serving, being able to commit to attending board meetings, to attend training workshops and being able to put the school and its students as the top priority in making decisions. Please remember that you can help make a difference by serving in a trustee capacity.
There are some significant changes in the election rules this year.
1. Trustees will no longer be required to have petition signatures to be on the ballot. If you want to declare your candidacy for a trustee position, please come to the clerk’s
office at the Savage School and pick up a declaration form. The deadline for declaring candidacy is March 24th, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. If you miss this deadline, you may declare as a write-in candidate by March 31st, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. This form may also be picked up at the clerk’s office. A write-in
candidate’s name will not be on the ballot and there is a very particular set of rules that must be followed to legally count votes.
2. Also, in the past there were no late voter registrations allowed. This year school election registration closes on April 3rd, 2016, but there will be late registration until May 2nd, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. Late registration must be done at the Clerk and Recorder’s Office in Sidney. Registration forms are available at the clerk’s office.
You may request an Absentee Ballot from the Clerk by filling out a form that is available at the office until Monday, May 1st, 2016 at noon. You may also register with the Clerk and Recorder to be on a permanent absentee list if you wish.
Savage School encourages everyone to vote in the election. Your vote is very important to the School District Administration and Board.

Student Eligibility Policy Change
In an effort to ensure that students remain eligible for extracurricular activities and take
responsibility for the academic success, we are implementing a mandatory study session for students that may become ineligible.
Students that are failing a class will be given a “grace week”. During this grace week the student will:
1. On the Thursday of the grace week, the student shall call and notify his or her
parents/guardians that he or she is taking part in mandatory study sessions in order to
raise his or her grades.
2. Meet with teachers in failing classes on Thursday, after school, to develop a “plan of
action” to bring his or her grade up to passing.
3. Supply the “plan of action” to the detention teacher, the athletic director, and the
4. Check their grades and missing assignments in Power School.
5. Report to the assigned detention duty teacher each day, Thursday-Wednesday,
including game days, for a mandatory study session.
If a student completes his or her plan of action prior to the end of the grace week, with teacher and athletic director approval, he or she will no longer be required to attend detention. Students that are in their grace week are still eligible for games.
Students will be able to check grades at the end of each school day. If the student does not complete their plan of action or continues to be ineligible they will:
1. Complete all the steps of the grace week
2. Report to the assigned detention duty teacher each day, regardless of whether or not he
or she completed the plan of action.
Students that are on the ineligibility list are ineligible to play in any games that week.
Mrs. MacSteves has started a GoFundMe account to raise money towards ordering personalized mouse pads for the students from Kindergarten to the sixth grade.
