We are asking for your help in getting the word out! How can we make it easy as possible to share with your students and their families? This email is to inform you about a great opportunity to participate in a broadband study in Nebraska. The purpose of the study is to pinpoint underserved and unserved areas. The data gathered will help guide future broadband decisions. Broadband investments benefit business and community services, remote learning, precision ag, telehealth and connections worldwide! The test is free for all Nebraskans, privacy is guaranteed, and participation can be done at your own convenience. By taking part, you are contributing to the growth and development of your community at no cost. We encourage people to take the test at different times of the day, on every device and to test often. Will you help us? Will you put a notice in your newsletters and post on your Facebook page? We would be happy to provide flyers, business cards, etc (Examples provided) If you choose to create your own message, you are welcome to borrow any of the language in this email. Please let me know how we can partner with you to promote this Broadband Speed Test!

The Golf Meet scheduled for Tuesday, April 20th in Alma has been postponed to a future date TBD. This postponement is due to the predicted weather for tomorrow. As of right now we are planning on going forward with the JH Track Meet in Franklin starting at 1:00 pm for tomorrow. This will depend on the amount of snow that accumulates over night tonight and a decision will be made by mid morning. Either way school will still be dismissed at 12:00 pm tomorrow. Stay posted.
