Carl Junction School District:

It has been a rough evening for many in our school district. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Due to trees down, roads blocked, and many of our families dealing with the aftermath of these storms, we are cancelling school for tomorrow. We will not make up this day but we will make plans for after Memorial Day to get back together so that students may pick up items and say summer good-byes. We will let you know about these plans as they are developed.

Stay safe and we hope to see you next week.
