This is a very important time for these students and for the adults who are mentoring them to share, bond and prepare mentally and spiritually for Week of Prayer. Please keep them lifted up in prayer.
Rec Ski begins this Sunday! Rec Ski payments of $20 for the bus are due tomorrow if you haven’t already paid for the whole $185 ski transportation package. General information sheet is attached. Please contact Pastor Sid at email@example.com by tomorrow, if you have questions or need to make a payment. See you at Schweitzer!
Ordering of graduation announcements, accessories, and cap and gown, will take place on Monday, January 9, 2017, from 6-7 p.m. in the Library. Please bring your completed graduation announcement order form and payment back with you from Christmas break. The order forms were handed out to the seniors last week and they will be bringing them home for completion.

WINTER DRIVING/ATTENDANCE POLICY
SAFETY IS OUR FIRST CONCERN!
Day students are encouraged to stay in the dorm when it is unsafe to travel. In this case, the fee for staying overnight in the dorm will be waived. Please make arrangements with the deans. Students driving during poor road conditions should allow extra driving time.
Even if Liberty School District is closed, we will continue to have classes. Parents will need to evaluate the situation. Our top priority is student safety, but we also don’t want them to miss classes unnecessarily. Liberty often closes due to conditions that do not affect travel to UCA. If Liberty is closed, students’ perfect attendance will not be affected and absences will be excused.
If Liberty School District is on a two-hour delay, we will operate as normal. If you have a special circumstance, please advise us.
Tune in to the radio or TV stations in the morning to have a list of school closings. You may also receive the same information on their websites.
If students have travel emergencies or will be staying home due to road conditions, parents need to call Flor Smith at 245-3614.
Again, you are encouraged to help your student allow extra travel time or have them stay in the dorm when necessary.
We are praying for a safe winter.
