After School Study Hall has begun for 3, 4, 5 & 6 grade students.  It goes from 3:20 to 4:05 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays for the rest of the school year.  Please call the Elementary office to sign your child up.  Parents are responsible for picking up students at 4:05 (unless they ride the McCook shuttle).  McCook shuttle students that stay will ride the 4:05 shuttle back to McCook.


If your student’s after school plans change, please contact the office directly with a phone call or by sending a note with your student. For example, if a student normally rides the bus but isn’t going to that day, the office, teachers and bus drivers need to know.  (Same thing for those who don’t normally ride the bus, but need to that day.)  Almost 140 students board the buses after school here in Culbertson.  Several get on another bus after they reach the high school. Please call the office before 2:40 with any changes. Notes are distributed daily to teachers 30 minutes before dismissal, letting them know of any changes. 



If a decision is made to close school, start late, or release early, local news media will be notified.  The information will also be on the Elementary school’s answering machine.  The information is broadcast on the following radio stations:  KRVN (880 AM and 93.1 FM), KICX (96.1 FM), KIOD (105.3 FM), KFNF (101.1 FM), and television stations NTV (Kearney) and KOLN/KGIN (Grand Island).  If there is a late start, there will be no Preschool.  Parents should call the school at 308-278-2131 if they have not received automated calls regarding snow days or late starts.

Elementary Parents, if you do not yet have access to your student’s information on Infinite Campus, please contact the office at 308-278-2131 to get set up. Not only can you view your student’s grades and lunch account, you can also make changes to your Contact Preferences and Notification Settings in the Campus Portal.
