No Computer Insurance At This Time
At two School District of Independence Board Meetings during the month of October, the board considered options to provide MS/HS families District sponsored insurance. There were questions regarding appropriate premiums, deductibles, parent demand, personal homeowners’ coverage, and administration of an insurance program. As a result, the District has taken no action. At this time the District’s Digital Learning Initiative and Responsible Use policies will remain in effect. The District will also continue its schedule to allow students to take computers home. This topic is still open for discussion and as more information is gathered a policy may s be implemented later in the year or next school year. Please contact the school administration if you have comments or concerns.
October is Fire Preparedness Month
The K5 and 1st Graders were visited by members of the Independence Fire Department. Talking about the importance of being safe around fire were Gene Kohnert and Meghan Kohnert. The students were able to see a full fire fighting suit and tour a fire truck.
