Eagle Theater Students open at MLK Day Celebration
The Case High School Eagle Theater students, under the direction of Nancy Gibson, opened the 22nd Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration at Gateway Technical College, with a courageous and powerful message intended to set the theme for the event. Their piece, I Am Right Here, included original poetry, songs and choreography inspired by the principles Martin Luther King stood for. They closed with the inspirational statement: Stand Up! The audience spontaneously responded by rising to their feet in applause.

It's That Time of Year: School Closing Procedures
As winter weather approaches, I want to be sure you are aware of emergency closing procedures that the School District follows. We realize that any change from the normal school schedule may cause some disruption. The below options will be utilized sparingly and only when conditions make such procedures absolutely necessary. It is very important that you are prepared for such an emergency. Please make all necessary arrangements in advance for alternate supervision for your child/children in case of emergency closings. Our goal is to ensure care and safety for all students.
