Blood Drive to be held Friday, Nov. 4th!

We're coming together to help save lives!

For patients in need, donated blood can change everything. Blood products are used to help people – our friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers – as they treat cancer, chronic diseases, and traumatic injuries. And they are only possible with the help of volunteer blood donors.

Our community blood drive is coming up soon. To see time slots available for appointments and to save your spot, click the link below:

Petersburg, IL 62675

With every donation you make, you help establish a sustainable community blood supply for years to come. Thank you for your support. We hope to see you at our drive!

Jr-Sr High Pick Up and Drop Off Procedures-PLEASE NOTE CHANGES

In an effort to continuously monitor and improve student safety, we want to remind everyone of appropriate pick up and drop off procedures for students at the Jr-Sr High School between the hours of 7:45 am and 3:30 pm. When dropping off students at the west end of the building, please exit the lot by completing the full traffic pattern past the football field and around past the tennis courts. No U-turns should be made to exit the lot after drop-off. For afternoon pick up, please find a designated parking space in a row near the tennis court side of the lot where your child will meet you and exit following the same traffic pattern around the exterior of the lot. Do not park and/or pick up in the fire lane along the west end of the building. Student drivers will be dismissed at 3:05 and bus riders, pick ups and walkers will be dismissed at 3:15. Early bird students follow a different dismissal schedule. Thank you for your assistance in helping to keep our children safe!
