The New Athens Police Department is looking for students between the ages of 14-21 to join the Explorer's Program.  This program teaches students about law enforcement, allows interaction with the police department, and looks great on a job application/resume.  Interested students can contact Officer Hill or Officer Spratt of the NAPD, or they can contact high school student Brian Meketa at school or at home.

There will be no snack bar today, but students may purchase Hostess products behind the counter.

Although there are no confirmed cases of the "swine flu" in Illinois, the district is trying to be pro-active in preventing any type of contagious infections by stressing hand washing, reporting any flu-like symptoms to the nurse, and encouraging parents to keep sick children at home.  The district is also making hand sanitizer available in each classroom, has installed hand sanitizers in the cafeteria for use before students go through the lunch line, and will have students clean desks with sanitizing wipes once or twice each week. An informational letter is being sent home with all district students.
