LMS Ski Trip 5

Good afternoon.
If you have a child involved with our LMS Ski Club, please continue reading.
With warm temperatures projected in the near future, Hidden Valley has just made the decision to close for the season.  Therefore, we will not be able to take our fifth and final ski trip of the year.  
Because of this cancellation, we have bus money that is left over.  The cost for transportation for this last trip is $13.  Our hope is to utilize these extra funds to provide scholarships for next year's ski club for those students who would otherwise not be able to be a part of this wonderful experience.  
If you are fine with using this amount for Ski Trip scholarships in 2017-18, you need do nothing.  
If you would prefer a refund of this amount, please email Mark Biernbaum at
Thank you,

Ski Trip for February 24, 2017

Good morning.
I wanted everyone to be aware that, based upon communications with Hidden Valley, Ski Trip #5 for this coming Friday is cancelled.  If temperatures get colder (in the low to mid 20s) in the next ten days, we should be able to use our makeup day on Friday, March 3.  
If this does not occur, then Hidden Valley will not be offering any more dates for this ski/snowboard season.  We will provide a follow up announcement early next week.
For your information, a summary of the message above was announced to our students today during morning announcements.
