Keep in mind that students sit on the floor for the ceremony, so girls should put shorts under their dresses if they choose to wear a dress. Also, the following applies as always:

    • No spaghetti straps
    • No jeans with holes
    • No jeans that are entirely too tight
    • No low-cut shirts

    If a student chooses NOT to wear his/her Sunday best, he/she must attend school in their regular uniform.

  • Flood Gate Closures

    Posted by Lauren Matte on 3/11/2019

    Due to the rising waters, the town of Berwick has had to close some of the flood gates.  Currently, the Mound Street gate, which is used for afternoon dismissal on Second Street, is still open.  If this gate closes, an electronic text will be sent to parents, and those car riders who are normally picked up on Second Street will be picked up on Texas Street near the main building.

  • Scam-Free Vacations

    Posted by Susan Dupre on 5/23/2019

    In her article Make It a Scam-Free Vacation, Lisa Lake from the Federal Trade Commission offers steps to prevent your dream vacation from becoming a nightmare.

    First: Do your homework.

    • In addition to getting recommendations from family and friends, do some online research on travel companies, hotels and agents with the words scam, review, or complaint. 
    • Consider extra costs.  Resort fees and taxes can add $50 or more to a nightly hotel cost.
    • Before you book, read the cancellation and refund policies for any destination.
    • Only buy travel insurance from a licensed agent.
    • Bring a copy of the trip confirmation details, including the rate and extras you were promised.

    Second: Be travel smart.

    • Don't pay for "prize" vacations. No real company will ask you to pay for a prize--and be careful about booking with a resort or timeshare offer, which may include the need to pay taxes or fees, plus high-pressure sales pitches. 
    • Don't sign anything until you know what you are getting.
    • Use a credit card, which gives you more protection than paying with cash or a debit card.

    Third: Protect your identity.

    • Take only the IDs and credit/debit cards you really need.  Also, make copies of these, too, and carry the copies in a separate location so that you can more easily report lost or stolen cards.
    • Bring a copy of your insurance card. 
    • Don't assume a Wi-Fi hotspot in a hotel, restaurant, or airport is secure. Avoid using mobile apps that require personal or financial information or use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) service.
