Parent teacher interviews

We have noticed that the sign-ups for parent teacher interviews this week that numbers are down from in the past. We have heard from some parents that they are having trouble accessing the website. If you are on your mobile device, it seems to be more problematic than on a home computer/iPad. Please use one of these for better accessibility to the site.

Ralph Coughlin, 1953-2019

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Ralph Coughlin.

For those students fortunate enough to ride on Bus 557, Ralph’s caring ways were a great way to start the morning and finish off the school day. This was never more evident than last year when he so emphatically pleaded with drivers to be aware of stopped school buses after a near miss on his route. Through these actions, Ralph was a crucial part of the heightened awareness around school bus safety that exists today.

Just last spring we were in awe of his amazing return to health after a successful kidney transplant – he looked like a million dollars! That makes it even harder to believe he is gone, having been back on the bus up until just a few short weeks ago. Ralph, you were certainly one of the great ones and you will be missed.

We offer our deepest condolences to his family at this time of loss.

Resting at the Davison Funeral Home Kensington for visitation on Wednesday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral Thursday in the Davison Funeral Home Chapel at 11 a.m. Interment in the Cape Traverse Cemetery.

Who’s Hungry?

The Late October food order is online at with a few changes to the usual menus. Gojis have moved from Thursday to Tuesdays to make room for the tasty Mac ‘n’ Cheese of the local Crossings Cafe. They brought free samples last week and it was a big hit. We’ve discontinued the Greco Chicken Fingers and Taters also since the sales were quite low each week. Since there is no school on Monday, the deadline for ordering is Tuesday morning at 8am. Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Weekend! We are certainly thankful for the wonderful students you send us each day and the amazing community support!
