School Closings Information
In the event of a school closing for inclement weather or in case of an emergency, the Donovan School District will utilize the One Call Now automated telephone alert system to contact parents via a phone call or text to inform parents of school closings information as soon as possible.
Listen to WGFA radio (94.1 FM), WVLI radio (92.7 FM or 101.7) or WKAN radio (1320 AM) to announce school closings as they occur.
Parents: Please DO NOT call the school for school closings information.
If you are not receiving One Call Now alerts please contact Mrs. Legan at email@example.com to sign-up for the automated alert system.
"Dress Up Days"
We will be having “Dress Up Days” each Friday for the rest of the year to raise money for student incentives. On Friday, April 26th, we will be donating the money we raise that day to the Martinton & Sheldon Food Pantries. If your child would like to participate, they need to bring in a donation of 25 cents or more if they wish each week. The class with the highest percentage of money per student raised will get to have dilly bars from Dairy Queen. If the school raises over $300 the class who has raised the highest percentage of money per student up to that point will get popsicles, if we raise over $500 teachers will get silly stringed, if we raise over $800 the class who has raised the highest percentage of money per student will get an extra recess, and if we raise over $1,000 one or more of our staff members will get water balloons thrown at them. We hope that you will encourage your child to participate as this is for a great cause. Let’s try to raise over $1,000!!!
