Reminders/Old Stuff

  • Every week I put out what I call a “Happy Friday!” post to parents and community. In the “Happy Friday!” I talk about good things and new stuff as well as reminders and old stuff. In addition I have an ‘upcoming events’ outline to help ensure parents are in the know and have an idea of what’s coming up. I can also use this as a way for Boosters, Senior Parents, and Counseling Center to get information out. I try and BOLD information to make it easier for parents to scan. 

 

  • Crestview and Waldport MS/HS are hiring! Waldport is desperate for Sodexo kitchen workers and custodians! If you know of anyone that is able to work, please send them to the website to apply. The location is listed as Toledo for kitchen on the website. We are also needing bus drivers! (Must be willing to be vaccinated per Governor’s mandate)

Students who are 16 years of age or older are able to apply for the kitchen to work during school hours – and be paid!
